Copic Friendship
by Laura Fulcher


Greetings friends.  I am continuing my striped theme with my latest card.  Once I glued my pink/red strips to another piece of cardstock, I ran the paper through my die cut machine with a heart die to cut out a heart window.  The die has faux stitching around the edges that adds a nice embellished element to the card.

Next, I stamped my flower onto XPress It Copic paper using Black Memento ink.  I colored the flower with several red markers (R22, R32, and R39) and the leaves with green markers (G14 and G19).

I don't know about you, but I am not very good about fussy cutting around an image, but I am not the best at it.  Here is what my image looked like:


I definitely didn't want to cut deep into the leaf areas.  Who has time for that?  One of the things I like to do is color the white areas with a grey marker so that it isn't quite as noticeable.  Here is a close up after I colored it with the grey marker:


It is a subtle difference, but it helps "cover" the areas that weren't cut out very well.


To finish the card, I popped up my flower and added a few rhinestones to the center.

Have a great weekend!







Beautiful coloring, Laura!
