Here for you




     Last night while I was idling away the hours surfing here and there on the computer I ran across a really cool new technique from Jennifer McGuire.  It's called "White Outline Copic Coloring".  If you go check it out you'll find a video tutorial and also that I've cased her card pretty closely.
     My flower image is called Dream in Color and is from the now closed There She Goes Clear Stamps.  I stamped it in Memento London Fog ink first and colored with my Copics then comes the white embossing.  It's an awesome look, or at least I think so.
     The mailman brought me two packages of goodies today and I put some of each to work on this card.  The texture on the card was created with a Memory Box stencil and some modeling paste.  It was sprinkled with sparkly embossing powder to get the fun blinged up look.  I think you can see it better in this picture.


Copics Used:
flower--Y35, Y38, YR65, YR68, R35, R37, R43, RV13, RV21, RV25
leaves--G21, G24, G28, G40, G43, G46, YG03

     I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:

  13. That just looks so cool Tracy! Love the outcome, for some reason your background looks really soft, but it can't be, of course ;-) Happy Easter to you my friend, hugs, Ira
