The Joyful Lilies set has two sentiments, as well as two different versions of the lilies image--one with and one without a Cross, so that it will be suitable for more occasions.
Shown above are the Copic markers that I used to color the Joyful Lilies image; I wanted my lilies to be white Easter lilies, so I colored around the lilies more than I actually colors the lilies.
When I was coloring the tiny Forget-Me-Nots, I got a little close to the inside to the flowers and lost some contrast, so I thought it would be the perfect time to pull out my Copic Opaque White and dot those tiny little centers back in! The newer style bottle of Opaque White has a detail brush that works well for tiny areas. Unfortunately, I had just shipped my bottle to my Chicago Copic classes next weekend. . . So, when I need a really small dot from the larger bottle, I often use a tiny embossing stylus, shown above. It's really easy to wipe it clean when I'm finished.
Here is the inside of my card; I used Marcy's Scripture sentiment and printed it in blue rather than black.
I dyed a length of white seam binding to coordinate with my card base (PTI Spring Rain) with my Copic Various Inks. The stitched, scalloped die is from MFT's Blueprints 27 Die-namics--one of my new favorites. Be sure to check the Power Poppy Blog for some other pieces made with Joyful Lilies! Thanks for visiting,
