CARD DETAILS

You’ll need the following products to make this card: Look For the Rainbows stamp set or any other stamp set with large outline flowers and leaves; we will use these images to build the background floral pattern. Another set we will need is the Beautiful Butterflies. Or again, any other set with large outline butterflies. We will also need masking paper as we will be doing quite a bit of masking to create the background. Of course, you’ll need a good pair of scissors you are comfortable using to cut the masks out. I like to use Spring-Cut scissors from Tonic Studios. You will also need an ink pad that works with your coloring medium of choice. I will be coloring today’s background with Copic markers and so I picked Simon’s Intense Black ink pad as this ink is Copic Marker friendly. Lastly, you’ll need a coloring medium. I prefer Copic markers these days, so this is the medium I’ll be using.

Be sure to watch my video tutorial to learn how to stamp this pattern and also for tips regarding Copic coloring and heat embossing.

I used the following Copic marker colors:

  • G21, YG63, G94 to color leaves
  • YR18, YR14, Y38, Y15, Y08 to color flowers
  • E79, E37, E33 to color flower centers
  • C9 to color the background
  • B97, B34 to color the butterflies
  • C5, C7 to create the butterfly shadows

I added a simple Sending Happy Thoughts sentiment to this card, this comes from Simon’s All Things Happy Sentiment strips. I also trimmed my panel down just slightly and adhered to the A2 white side folding card base.

    1. My goodness Yana, this is a jaw dropping card. It is simply a delight for the eyes as there is so much to enjoy. Beautiful, thank you for sharing your talent.

    1. Love the card. It’s really striking, bright and beautiful.

    1. One of these days I hope to remember to try something bold like this! Love the drama of the dark background and colorful flowers. The gray shadow under the butterflies really help lift them off the flowers and bring them forward. To my eye, the softer gray looks less distracting and more natural. Beautiful card, Yana!!

    1. WOW, this card is stunning! Thanks for the great tips and video.

    1. Very pretty card! You showed me that being bolder does lovely things. I’ll try.
