I was able to squeeze in another card tonight. It is Danni’s birthday on Flutter by Wednesday and she is celebrating all month long. For this week’s card we needed to make her a birthday card. I received this Magnolia image in the mail today and felt it would work fine for a birthday card. You might be saying “These are not normal colors for you” well that would be a true statement. I also wanted to play in the Copic colour Challenge and these are the colors for the week.
After coloring her in with my Copics, I used my petite oval nesties to cut the image out. I layered a scallop oval underneath in SU So Saffron. The patterned paper is Basic Grey Marrakech. I thought the colors matched pretty darn close. For a different layout, I choose to use triangles. Maybe it was the Geometry homework earlier. For the sentiment I used my stamp from Stacy Stamps. I love how she has the sentiment both vertically and horizontally. I went with the vertical arrangement since my oval was placed lengthwise. A few pearls in the corners and a small MS butterfly near the flower and it is done. Now you diehard Copic fans who have a true color screen will say – Hold on, she didn’t use the three colors we gave. And that would be true. I used E08, YR21 and YG97. I got as close as I could. Here are the rest of my colors:
