Day thirty of the second Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge. A thank you to Kathy Racoosin for running the challenge and somehow finding the time to comment on everyone’s pictures.
The hardest part about making this card was leaving so much white space on it.
I made a card base from Neenah cardstock so I could make this a one-layer card. I combined elements from two Mama Elephant stamp sets to create a cute “thank you” and stamped them directly on the card base with Copic-friendly ink.
Once the image was coloured, I finished the card off with a coat of Wink of Stella on the icing and some glossy accents on the cherries. The final touch was to add a couple of clear sequins — I wasn’t planning on doing this but I noticed that there was the tiniest dot of Copic ink in the middle of all that white space and it was quite obvious and needed to be covered.
