Kathy Rac, over at The Daily Marker is having another bi-annual 30-day coloring challenge. However, February only has 28 days, so we get a two-day break! 😊 We’ve decided to combine our challenges and include coloring on every card this month. And we will both do all we can to remember to include our Copic colors! So for day one of #TheDailyMarker30Day, here are our projects!
Lori: Purple and Green are so pretty together and perfect for succulent cards. I first stamped the Altenew Succulent on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# cardstock, colored it with these Copic colors: V91, V93, V95, E13 & E23 for the pot, YG 95, YG97 & YG99 for the succulent, and W6 for the shadows, then cut it out with a Brother ScanNCut. I used Gina K Designs Edible Eggplant cardstock for the base. I then added a piece of platinum cardstock from DCWV 6×6 Shimmer Neutrals Mat Stack cut with MFT Stitched Basic Edges. Next, I used MFT Jellybean Green for the top layer and stamped it with Gina k Designs Gauze background in MFT Jellybean Green dye ink and also cut it with MFT Stitched Basic Edges. For finishing touches, I used Versamark to stamp the sentiment on GKD Eggplant, then heat embossed with Altenew Crisp Platinum embossing powder. I cut the sentiment strip and a layer of the platinum cardstock with Sunny Studio fishtail banners. For a finishing touch, I used a random piece of jute ribbon from my stash and added the succulent with some foam tape for dimension. Hope you like it!
Devyn: I’m still learning Copics but I found this succulent fairly easy to shade and shadow after some lessons. I used the following Copic colors: YG05, YG07, and YG09 for the cactus and W6 for the shadow. The soil is E57. Pot: YR27, YR24, and YR23. I used My Favorite Things Cement Gray cardstock as my base. The oval is from the My Favorite Things Inside & Out Stitched Oval STAX. I used Nuvo Classic Gold Detail Embossing Powder and then cut the oval with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Ovals.
