I am playing along with this week's Make it Monday #252: Shadowing with Copic Markers. I made this card using a Hugs word die from Big Hugs and framed it with the smallest die from Embroidered Borders.
I added the butterflies from Color Pop Butterflies. You can see in the first photo that I shaded the right and lower portions of the word 'hugs' with a Copic BG11 marker.
I am also entering this card at Addicted to Stamps and More #197: Make Your Mark and Happy Little Stampers Anything Goes with Dies.
My next card was inspired by this card on Carol's blog. As soon as I saw her card, I had to try to make my own. Unfortunately, the stamp I used did not work for her technique, so I ended up doing a some ink blending instead. I took my colors and floral inspiration from Inspired by All the Little Things #18. eta. I see that All the little things has closed, but I'll still show the photo here, because it is still where I got my color inspiration.
I heat embossed MFT Etched Flower and then sponged and blended 4 different colors of distress ink, matching the colors in the inspiration photo.
I am also linking this card up at CAS-ual Fridays CFC149: Florals, Addicted to CAS #89: Petals, and Seize the Birthday (no toppings).
Thanks for Visiting
