Julie Warner –
For my card, I used this beautiful Zinnia image, stamped it on white, then did an out of the box Nestie technique and colored it with Copics. An extra butterfly and large zinnia were also colored and fussy cut. Now I’m fairly sure my “butterfly” could be a moth in disguise, but I’m going with it. The greeting was stamped on the gold card stock and I added a gold shadow w/ a Copic marker on one side and used a white gel pen highlight on the other side of the letters before die cutting it.
Before I attached the extra Zinnia on top of the base image, I cut and lifted a few of the petals. The finished card is A2 (4.25 x 5.50), and these are the Copics I used to color everything.
Thanks so much for stopping by!

It’s been a while since I’ve been able to do a sketch challenge and today’s looked pretty easy to work with. I’m using a set called Baptism/ConfirmationVerses from Our Daily  Bread designs January release.

For the center panel, I stamped the verse first using the poppy ink, then lined it up and overstamped it using the charcoal chalk ink. I cut it using a Spellbinders long rectangle Nestie that I resized to make it slightly shorter.  For the dk coral punched panel, I measured then lined up the punch to repeatedly punch the decorative squares and make a lacy background.

Rather than make 3 separate panels, I cut two dk coral strips and attached them on top of the dp to simulate panels. I added two narrow dp strips on top. The ribbon was white so I used lt gray and coral markers to make it coordinate w/ my colors.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
