I was asked to teach the 12 and 13 year-old girls from church how to color with alcohol markers. I decided the easiest image to learn on would be a simple flower design, so I printed a lot of the roses from Power Poppy Rose and Chamomile digital stamp with my HP Laser printer onto 80# Ninnah Solar White cardstock. I wanted them to have enough images to practice coloring before completing a final image to make a Mother’s Day card for their Mom. When the evening was done I had a lot of leftover printouts and decided to make several cards with them rather than throw them away. I will post a lot of different renditions of this image and you will be able to see how one image can create a lot of unique and pretty cards.
For this card the rose was colored hot pink with Copic Markers: RV02, RV04, RV06; YG13, YG17, YG67; C00, C0, C1.
When the coloring was complete the image was die cut using a My Favorite Things Pierced Circle STAX die. A slightly larger circle was cut from Paper Accents Gold Mirror cardstock with a Simon Says Stamp Nested Circle die and both were adhered together with Be Creative Double-Sided Tape. A top folding A2 cardbase made from 120# Gina K. Designs White Cardstock and the focal image was placed on top to determine where to stamp the sentiment. The sentiment from Clearly Besotted Fancy Sayings was stamped with VersaMark Ink at the bottom center of the card front and heat embossed with Ranger Fine Detail Gold Embossing Powder. A circle of Darice Sticky Back Fun Foam was adhered to the back of the focal image and then it was applied to the cardbase using Tombo Mono Multi Glue and the card done.
