It is Memorial Day here in the US - a day in which we remember those who fought and died while serving in the armed forces. I would like to say thank you to our military and those who have served and their families for their sacrifices to protect our freedom.
For my card I wanted something cheerful and I wanted to try my hand again at no line coloring with yellows. I hate yellow Copics - sorry I just do. So I signed up/purchased for Amy Shulke's Vanilla Arts, Co Livestreams and have immersed myself in a few of her streams using yellow. I still need to practice but this is a huge improvement over that dahlia from a couple of weeks ago lol!!!! Oh that was watercolor paint and here I am blaming the Copics. Let's just say yellow gives me fits but is so very cheerful. Anyway I am really enjoying the classes a lot and dying to get some homework done!
I stamped Daisies cling stamp onto Copic X-pressit blending card stock using My Favorite Things Cement one of my fav greys for no line coloring (means I can see it lol). I then used a color combination from Amy Shulke with 1 substitution - Y11, Y15, Y35, YG01. I then added some shading with Prismacolor Greyed Lavendar and Caran D'Ache Luminance Burnt Sienna. I used B000, B23 and B24 and the colorless blender to give a watercolor effect to the background.
For the background panel I used my embossing mat in my Gemini Junior with the Checkered Frames die set. With my Picket Fence Studios Life Changing Blender Brushes I dusted on some Impression Obsession Sky Blue hybrid ink - gorgeous color.
I die cut the image out with Whimsical Scalloped Tag and added the white heat embossed sentiment strip. I popped up the tag onto the background with some foam tape.
So head on over to the IO Blog to see what the rest of the team has cooked up. I know there will be some beautiful cards there - always are!
