Hi everyone! And welcome back to my week sharing cute and elegant cards. I created the cutesy inspiration cards by simply coloring some fun Penny Black images with Copics and layering with patterned paper. Next, using a cutesy card as inspiration, I challenged myself to create an elegant card.
To create the elegant card, I began by stamping Penny Black Gossamer with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Copic X-Press It Blending cardstock. I then colored this image using Copic markers. (I used the same colors that I used on the 1st card shown today.) Next I inked this piece using Forest Moss and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The background was inked with Wild Honey Distress Ink and then stamped with Penny Black Majestic Background using Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. Finally, the note card was distressed with Faded Jeans Distress Ink and a little bit of Brushed Corduroy around the edges. Punched butterflies by Martha Stewart and sentiment by SRM Stickers.
Oh, and be sure to pop by the Mementos blog for a tutorial today on coloring people. Here's a peek:
