I Love to Color…

Sometimes I love my Copic markers and today is one of those days.  I played along with last week’s TSG challenge to add sponging using diecuts.  I’m a little late, mostly because I was  not feeling creative at all last week.  However after making this card and spending some quality time coloring I can feel my crafting mojo coming back. :)


I stamped one of the girl images from Sparkly & Bright on Choice Snow white cardstock and cut out with a Labels Fourteen Nestabilities die.  I masked the main image and then while leaving the die in place and using a cloud template I sponged the sky using Tumbled Glass Distress ink.  I sponged the ground using Pumice Stone Distress Ink.

I stamped the girl a second time and colored with Copic markers before cutting out.  I did color the base image too but didn’t do any shading… just enough color so it looks okay when you look at the card from the side.  I popped the second image over the first using foam tape and then added some dots of Liquid Pearls.


I used a few pearls and a bit of ribbon for embellishment but I spent the most time adding texture by embossing the second panel, distressing edges and adding stitching to the third panel.


So what do you think?  Like the all of the neutrals with just a few pops of color that I used on this card?
