Hope your week is going well! I cannot believe it is already the middle of July. This whole “groundhog day” effect is messing with my sense of time. But today, I get to share a card that I made for two of my favorite things. First, I am the sketch designer for Freshly Made Sketches and I used the inspiration from SugarPea Designs monthly challenge!
I have been seeing some beautiful cards with dark Copic backgrounds (Yana Smakula is one of the stampers I have seen). I decided that it was time to give it a go. I started by stamping the flower and butterfly from Meadow Motifs with Momento Tuxedo Black on Neenah Solar White paper using my Misti. I colored images with inspiration from the SugarPea Designs challenge.
Once done with the images, I started on the background using a dark Copic marker. It took a bit but ultimately not too hard to do. Then, I slid the whole panel back in the Misti. First I used a static bag to make sure stray powder would not stick. Then I overstamped the image with Versamark Ink and added Wow Gold Rich Superfine Powder, then heat embossed. The effect is stunning! I pulled a sentiment from what is now my “go to” sentiment set, Everyday Sentiments. On my Fog Gray base, I stamped the Handwritten Letter in Versamark for more texture and added a small gold panel for the sketch.
I hope you’ll come over and join me in both challenges! Thank you so much for stopping in today! See you again soon.
