Hi everyone, today it’s Mother’s Day in the Netherlands, so I can show you the card that I created for my mother (since she has now received it)! I was in the mood for colouring and choose to work with my Copics.
I first die cut a piece of Copic friendly paper (for this project I used Strathmore “Marker Paper”, which is slightly crème coloured) to the size that I needed for my card (two sizes smaller then my card base). Then I stamped two of the images from the Penny Black “Fairy Sweet” stamp set onto this paper using Memento “Tuxedo Black” ink. Next I stamped my sentiment with the same ink, the sentiment is by Clearly Besotted (“Brushed Sentiments”).
The Penny Black fairy image is totally cute and it goes so well with the Clearly Besotted sentiment (that company creates THE most gorgeous sentiment stamp sets in the world!).
Now the colouring can begin. I used the following colours of Copic markers:
V000, RV10, RV52, RV06, RV55, RV09, RV66, BV08, E000, R00, R01, R20, R22, R24, R14, R29, G40, YG13, YG17, G28, E11, E13, E15 and E57.
When the colouring was done I added in some highlights using a white Gelly Roll pen.
Next I choose a pinkish purple card stock for my mat and cut it to size. I adhered both square panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered to a crème coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape.
To finish my card I applied some Stickles in the colour “Diamond” to the wings of the fairy, using a small brush (wash the brush afterwards). I love to do this on all my fairy images, it gives them their extra fairyish look (yes, I know that is not a word)!
And that’s it for today’s Mother’s Day project. I wish you a creative day!
