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

Wow, what a gorgeous look this is! I really LOVE it, Tracy! That flower is fabulous! Love the mixture of embossing and coloring....the texture and watercolor look is amazing. And how fun that background is, too. Love the modeling paste. I need to get some of that. And what a great idea to add the sparkly embossing powder! Beautiful!

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
