Amy has a cute sketch for us this week at Freshly Made Sketches. I could not resist the urge to flip the sketch! While my original idea was going to use a an actual tag, I ended up going with a tad more elegant design. I was determined to ink up my new poppy stamp set and let the rest of my card come together around my image. After finally re-organizing my Copics, I decided I needed to actually use them as well. The only way I am ever going to perfect using them is to practice, practice, practice!
While I have been collecting Copics for a couple of years now, I have probably only colored a couple of dozen images. I am amazed at the artwork some of the cardmakers out there create with them. Let’s just say when I grow up, I want to be able to color like they do!
I added a few layers to the inside as well, love the added pop of black.
