Stitched Flowers Celebrate You

I decided to dig into my dies and use some of the product I had on hand. I pulled out these stitched flowers from My Favorite Things. I wanted to water color them and so I used Bristol Smooth Cardstock to cut the flowers and leaves and colored them using my ZIG Clean Color Real Brush Markers. I die cut Avery Elle’s Horizontal Strips and arranged the flowers in the lower left of the open circle. Stamped the sentiment in the opening with VersaMark Ink and heat embossed with gold embossing powder. The flower centers are gold mirror cardstock to match the heat embossed sentiments.

Horizontal Stripes Happy Birthday

I love the way this die from Avery Elle has a circle die cut. It’s perfect for adding a bouquet of flowers and stamping the sentiment inside the circle. I popped everything the striped die with foam tape.

When I am coloring an image with Copic Markers that I want to add gold embossing to, I first stamp it in a light ink, leave the stamp in my MISTI, color the images, and then stamp again with VersaMark and then heat embossed. I’ve found coloring over embossing powder than ruin the nibs of your Copics.

A Little Birdie Told Me

My Granddaughter Aurora loves parakeets and has three of them. I asked her for a picture of one of them so that I could color this image I found on Pinterest to look like Lucky. It really helped to have a photograph because I would never have added the browns to the wings. She love it.
