Autumn Slimline Card
by Donna Sledzik


Good morning everyone!  If you like coloring, this card is for you!  I used Copic Markers for my card but colored pencils or watercolor would work just as well.

I stared by stamping my image, then colored it with Copic Markers and die cut it with the matching die.  I like to color my image first and then figure out my background. 

The Copic Marker colors I used are: BG34, BG32, BG11, YG97, YG95, YG63, R27, YR07, YR04, Y35, C00, and C1.


I picked an aqua colored cardstock to match the berries in the stamped image, then sponged the edges of the cardstock with Broken China Distress Ink.  Next I stamped my sentiment using black ink and spattered the background with gold ink.  I also spattered my stamped image with the same ink.


To finish the card, I layered the background to a kraft cardstock mat and glued it to a white card base.  I used foam tape to adhere the stamped image to the card.

That's it for today!  Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
