First, take a look at the brand new releases we have. These are fabulous & there are a lot of somethings for everyone. We have florals, we have birthdays, we have cute Valentine critters & we have fun greetings.
The card I want to share today was made w/ the new Birthday Lilies set. This will also be a great set to use for your Easter cards.
After I colored the lilies, I fussy cut them & set them aside. I will mention, when fussy cutting a detailed image, I always start w/ a craft knife & cut out the internal pieces that I wouldn’t be able to get w/ the scissors. Then the rest is cut using a very small pair of curved blade scissors. Think decoupage scissors & it works much better to turn the paper, not the scissors, when cutting. On the background, I chose a couple of yellow inks & 1 light grey ink to sponge the colors in. I started w/ the lemon & brought it in from the bottom right & let it fade to white as I went over the mid section. The citrus was added at the lower right. Then I used the grey to come in from the upper left, again letting it fade to white as I approached the lemon. Since these colors are not two you can easily blend (w/o making mud), they really needed the bit of white so they didn’t overlap too much. A little bit is fine, but too much would not be a good look. After it dried, I stamped the greeting.
I die cut the white deckle frame, popped it up a bit, then tucked the lilies under & over the frame. The lilies are also popped up. A few sequins finished it.
Here are the Copics I used for the lilies:(I’m pretty sure I also used a Y26 mustard, but I don’t see it in there.)
