I created this cute card for my daughter's friend. She was celebrated her Quinceañera (Sweet 15) and I thought of making her a special card.
I used heavy weight Georgia Pacific Card stock and variety paper from Michaels. I am using Georgia Pacific for now because I am a newbie and found out from a veteran using Copics that this paper was good for beginners. So far I think its coming out good.
Playing with Copic Markers today and my dies. So much fun! I am making birthday cards and Mother's Day. No more buying cards for me! I hope the recipients enjoy them.
This is one is for my mother in law. She loves cats so I used a clear stamp I had bought and Memento Tuxedo black ink. I colored with Copics and viola! I am sure you can see some of my mistakes, but I loved coloring. Practice makes perfect.
Copic Colors Used:
I was not meaning to use 4 colors but I wanted some more shadow around some areas, so I added E13 and blended with E11. I had fun using my white core card stock! I love that technique of rubbing the embossed card stock with a sand block to bring out the design that was embossed.
This other card I did for my sister in law. Her birthday is coming up so I decided to make her a card. I pulled out the cardstock I had plus some little things I had like flowers and some bling, bling.
It's Dr. Who time!! My family is a big fan of the BBC series of Dr. Who and I had to make a card for my daughter's 15th birthday. I went around the internet looking for ideas and this card I made is the end results of a couple of ideas combined. I think it came out pretty good. I used the following Copic marker colors to color the Dalek inside the card:
Its the beginning of April!! WOW! Where has the time gone!
I haven't had much time to "play" with my Big Shot but I made these two cards recently so I will post them to share. They are not much compared to all the beautiful work many of you do, but as a beginner, I am on my way I think! I ordered some more Copic Sketch Markers so once they arrive, I will attempt on coloring something simple with the stamps I have bought. Let creativity begin!!
