CARD DETAILS

What you probably can’t see on the photo of the card above, are the tiny black jewels I added to the negative part of the background. I enjoy using this trick lately, adding jewels to the backgrounds of my cards to diversify them (see another example/idea HERE). They provide quite a wow to my cards and also add a nice tactile experience to the project.

I made this card by Gold heat embossing the Spring Flowers Background stamp on Neenah 80lb cardstock. Next, I used my Copic markers and colored the flowers and the background.

If you are afraid to color with Copic markers over heat embossing, there’s is a workaround I share. You’ll need a MISTI stamping tool for that. See the workaround HERE.

I used the following marker colors: C9, E00, E02, R20, RV10, RV11, R83, Y08, Y15, Y17, YG01, YG03, YG17. Once my coloring was done I adhered the panel onto the A2 white card base.

Next, I added a sentiment using Simon’s pre-printed sentiment cards. Finally, I adhered a bunch of black jewels from Pretty Pink Posh over the black colored negative space of the card.

    1. Love, love, love this card. Color makes me happy! I’ve never colored an entire background with dark/black copic so that is something i’ll have to work up my courage to try. lol

    1. I absolutely adore this card!! The jewels on the background give it such a lovely subtle texture and the flowers just pop off the black background. Thank you so much for sharing it.

    1. Yana, I love this card! The style, the colors, everything about it. You are so talented.

    1. Love your card. I made some cards using the stamp and I wish I had embossed the design. I may take the time to color in the white space with a black copic marker.
