Oh man, I have had such a difficult time getting into the crafty mood lately. Although I can feel the end of my Christmas card extravaganza getting closer, and as much as I love a good assembly line setup, I think the process is draining my creative desires right now. The only thing that I’ve really enjoyed and wanted to do is a little on-the-side Copic coloring. I finally grabbed a couple of challenges and a stamped image and then made an original, non-Christmas project.
This card utilizes the ColourQ #165 colors and also Freshly Made Sketch #63.
I am loving the new PTI Sweet Blush pattern paper pack. Really pretty papers. The image is from the Vintage Picnic stamp set, colored with Copic markers. I sponged around the circle perimeter using Baja Breeze ink. I kept the aqua/turquoise to a minimum here.
The sentiment is from the Framed Greetings stamp set, stamped in Real Red ink. The doily was cut from an MFT die.
For the two center strips behind the focal panel, I used my favorite Offray lace and a bit of hand-dyed crinkly seam binding. I used the seam binding because I intended to put a little bow on the side of the image, but it just didn’t seem to fit, so I left off the bow but kept the ribbon strip. Hope it’s not too weird. And, of course, a few rhinestones.
So, I have a little question for you: Would you find it helpful for me to list the Copic markers I use on my cards?
I don’t really give it too much thought when I’m listing supplies, but if there are any who would find it helpful, I could be persuaded to list them. If it’s not a big deal to anyone, I guess I wouldn’t really bother with it. Either way. Just wondering what you all think about it.
Thanks for stopping by today. 😉
