Happy Friday! Hope your week just flew by and you are ready to have a fun weekend! I have a “sweet” card to share with you as well as a start-to-finish video sharing how I created this look. Last time I posted a video that had this copic dot detail on it, I asked if you wanted a detailed explanation on how to achieve this look….there was a resounding “yes” so I filmed this video and I hope it helps you with this fun technique.
The image is from Whimsy Stamps and is called Sweetie, illustrated by the fabulously talented Sylvia Zet. Her images are among my very favorites to color.
The image is so sweet and well… dreamy :) I knew that I wanted to pair it up with the Whimsy large Dream word die. To create the look of chipboard, I simply die-cut several of them and glued them one over top of the other. The ombre effect was achieved my using Copic Markers, light to dark but in the same color family.
The coloring also was kept pretty light. I didn’t want a whole lot of contrast…just nice and soft. The dotted copic detail carries on the softness but gives it some needed interest :)
I am totally in love with this ME Madison frame. I keep reaching for it every time I make a card. I love the stitched detail along both edges and the delicate scallops. Perfection!
Here you can see how layering several die-cuts creates added dimension and just elevates it perfectly. I was really happy about how the word fit exactly inside the opening!
