Hope Your Day Is Amazing

Today I have a card to share from the Class Magic Marker Techniques

First of all I used the flower and leaf die and cut several pieces from white cardstock. Next, instead of stamping with the base layer for the flower and leaf, I used Copic markers R20 (for the flower) and G21 (for the leaf) to colour the die cuts.

To create some texture, I used a piece of jute cloth with Colourless Blending solution and pressed the jute cloth over the coloured die-cut pieces.

When the die-cuts are dry, I stamped the next few layers with Altenew inkpads (Rouge, Crimson and Violet for the flower and Forest Glades and Evergreen for the leaves).

On the Watercolor Stripes Cover die, I used Copic Marker E31 and coloured the stripes. Once again, I used a microfibre cloth with the Colourless Blending solution to create texture on the stripes.

For the sentiment Hope, I die-cut 4 pieces from white cardstock.  I stacked and glued 2 of the pieces together.  One of the sentiment was coloured with Black alcohol ink marker and the other with E31.  Then I glued the brown piece over the black and offset it slightly for some interest.  For the stamped sentiment, I used Versamark and white heat embossed it on brown cardstock.

Then the card is assembled as shown - the flowers are adhered with foam adhesive for some dimension.

I love this assignment, it was so fun and I love the texture created with the Blending solution.

Thank you for visiting me and hope your day is beautiful!
