I wanted to key my Copic coloring to the patterned paper.  So on a scrap piece of white card stock I tested colors until I found one that looked good with the patterned pHello everyone!  Betsy here today sharing the Bunch of Love digistamp set.  This is such a lovely set with the rose bouquet.  Let me show you how I made my card!  I started by composing my design in the computer.  I made the sentiment away from the design so I could work with it separately.  I recolored my image so it was light gray – for a no line look.  I made a card base using 2 coordinating patterned papers onto a standard A2 size top folding white card base.  To separate the papers I used rose gold peel-offs.  This gives just a bit of definition and refinement.

I wanted to key my Copic Colors to the colors in the paper.  I used R000, R00, R20, R32 and then a glaze of RV10.

I went ahead and colored all of the roses the same way using the same colors.  I did not do a really deep shading on these flowers.  I used W2, W3, W5 and E04 for the ribbon and bow.

The last to color in were the stems.  I used YG11, YG63, YG17.

I fussy cut this image and then, using a small paintbrush and some rose gold watercolor paint, I outlined the roses.  This made them stand out a bit and really matched the peel-offs down the sides of the card.

I next took the sentiment and colored over it with the R00 marker.

I die cut the sentiment with a banner die and had the fish tail on the right side so I could align it to the left side on the card.  I cut a line between the ribbon tail and stems so I could overlap the ribbon end on my sentiment.  I adhered these to the center of the card with foam tape.  For embellishments I added some small taupe pearls from my stash and my card was done!

I hope I’ve inspired you here today to make something beautiful!  Digital stamps are a great way to go!  They are so versatile and the price point is awesome!
