And now for my card ...Today's card was designed using a CardMaps sketch. Power Poppy is being featured in this month's PageMaps sketches. I was given the sketch you see on the right.
I combined two Power Poppy digital sets: Gerbera Daisies, Spring Meadow Bouquet (Bumblebee), and a clear set for the sentiment: Simply Camelias
I printed, colored (with Copics), scored, burninshed, and even separated each petal to make the Gerbera more "fluffly". There are 3 layers. I also curled the leaves a bit with my stylus.
I added an extra vellum layer to the bumblebee wings to give them a lighter feel.
Copics: R59, R56, R81, N8, N6, N4, N2, Y38, Y35, Y32, .01 Multiliner
That sums up my project for today, but there's more I need to share.
You have 3 options to "Pick 3"
1. Pick three markers from the same color family to create a monotone design
2. Pick three markers from complementary color families - easier to blend etc
3. For the courageous or expert....pick three random markers and color away.
