Full of Glee Hello Friend

This is another card I created while coloring with Copic markers with my granddaughter. This time I decided to keep the flower images pink. It was fun talking with Emma about shading and the importance of adding contrast shading to an image. She wanted to keep to colors within in the same color family, with only a number or two different. I showed her how branching out just a little and going a little deeper with a color could really add depth to an image. We had a lot of fun.

This is a love image from Penny Black that I have used many, many times. Now days with Michael finally retired my crafting budget isn’t what it used to be. So when I purchase a stamp now I ask myself, “will I use this stamp many times?” and if the answer is no I don’t purchase it. This one is a keeper.

I stamped the image on Neena Classic Crest 80# Solar White Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink, which is Copic friendly. Once the coloring was complete I decided to cut down the image with a scalloped rectangle die. I love the way a pretty die really adds so much to a white on white card design. I cut down some foam to be just smaller than the rectangle and added it behind the image for added dimension and then adhered it to a top folding A2 cardbase and the card was done.
