PTI Make It Monday #7

Today's technique for Make It Monday is Coloring with Copics on Colored Paper. Jennifer Ellefson's video takes us step by step into the technique. Here's my example.


I started with Lemon Tart cardstock and stamped the small Daffodils from Year of Flowers in Summer Sunrise. I used some lighter Copics than the Lemon Tart Trio, specifically Y00, 13, 15 & 21. The Y21 brought the shading back to the Lemon Tart spectrum. Several of the ruffle tips are highlighted with a white gel pen.


That's a little brown paper bag holding the flowers. It's about an inch longer. I folded that amount to the back before gluing it to the card base. One of the design team mentioned them, but I didn't note it at the time and I can't find the reference now. The bags are so darn cute! It's tied with cream button twine.
You might have noticed the Summer Sunrise gingham strip next to the 2008 Bitty Box PP.  Yup! My order came while I was working on this and I had to try it out. I'm in love!! Just think, gingham in any PTI color. Thank you Nichole for such a beautiful image. It really looks like woven threads! (I get excited very easily concerning all things fabric)

Hope you enjoyed it. Thanks for dropping by.

Supplies (all PTI unless otherwise indicated)
Paper: Stamper's Select White, Lemon Tart, 2008 Bitty Box Basics
Stamps: Year of Flowers: Daffodils
Ink: Summer Sunrise, New Leaf
Other: Rustic Cream Button Twine, Celebrate It Mini Kraft Paper Sacks, foam dimensional dots

This is one of the best cards I have ever seen with that image. You did such a great job with it. This MIM makes me want to buy YOF images. I think I might be able to do it by coloring on colored paper. Beautiful card, love the bag the flowers are in.

I just love everything about this card! That little bag is perfect, and I was so excited to see your gingham! Yay! TFS!

Oh my! This is an extraordinary card (and that is putting it mildly)! I have this set and have only ever used it once. Nice set, but I don't think I saw it's true potential until now. You have really showcased this set amazingly!! I am so in awe. Instead of going straight into my inspiration file, this beautiful card will be taking pride of place on the cover! This is cardmaking at it's finest! Wow!

This is truly stunning...
I love that little bag!
But we apparently had similar ideas today...
yup.
I have spent the evening masking and finally stamping that gingham background to perfection...
with Buttercups.
When I popped over to just peek at how many were done...
I hate being first...
and saw yours...
I stopped and just posted it.
Yours is done better...
truly stunning.
And I love the quilt in your header:)
