I have a couple more cards to share today…first a couple of monochromatic cards. This first one is for the MIX61 challenge, monochromatic. I used shades of yellow..from pale to a dull yellow/gray. The large yellow background is actually a really big paint chip with 3 colors of pale yellow. So I’m hoping the paint chip (found item), ink, Copics, glitter glue and ribbon will be enough to fit in the “Mix”. After coloring my daisies, I added the greeting and a pen work frame around it and the right edge is a bit out of the box. The seam ribbon was colored w/ Copics and added to the handle.
These are the Copics I used.
This next card was sort of a trial run for the one above. It is also monochromatic, but there’s not a real mix of stuff going on so it really doesn’t fit the “mix”. It does fit into the Free For All Challenge, circles! (F4A214).
This one is very CAS (clean & simple). I stamped the big bloom, masked it and stamped the writing along one side. I used pretty much the same Copics as the one above, minus the cool grays. The greeting was stamped on little strip and the two left side corners were rounded. I added 2 Candi dots in the upper right for a little balance.

For my card, I die cut the teapot & teacup in white, then lightly embossed them only on lt yellow card stock. I used yellow & yellow/orange Copic markers to add some additional color to the embossed yellow roses, then trimmed to fit under the white die cut versions. I came across a previously die cut white oval frame & used the same Copics to add color to match. I did the same with the larger, yellow/orange mat. The printed paper was added underneath for contrast. On the larger piece of designer paper, I stamped the tea border with the distress ink and added some of the yellow/orange color to it as well. The layout is a bit non-standard but I had some pieces of designer paper left from another project and didn’t want them to go to waste. One word of the tea border was stamped on white and I used a multi tag punch to punch out the one little “tea bag” tag to add to the cup. I added a printed navy Candi dot in the upper left for balance.

Today’s Ways to Use It challenge (WT472) is to make a long card. I haven’t made one in a quite a while and I thought this image would fit nicely in a long format. The card itself is pretty simple…stamped & colored the image then die cut the frames & attached them on top of the image. The greeting was stamped directly on the 6.25 x 3.50 card front. The little Candi dots were added…well, the bottom one was added when I saw a mystery smudge & had to cover it. One didn’t seem right, so I added another just above it. Then mystery smudge #2 appeared up on top, so 3 Candi dots it was!
Anyway, these are the Copics I used.
