Card Sketch #57 - Bliss



Good morning - here is my latest sketch and card, both measure 4 1/4 x 5 1/2. Copic markers again played into the main panel. I've been playing around with my markers to get the hang of them and I think this image came out pretty good. I'm still playing around with the blender pen. I'm finding that it's making the black ink bleed. The inks I have used are Palette Noir and Stazon. I've used Papertrey ink's white cardstock, and the cheap stuff....still not liking what I'm getting. I'll keep you posted on my findings.



I added all the flower punches once I had finished this card, I felt that it "needed" something more, and it went with the flowers in the watering can! Yellow brads are used in the centers to attach them to the card.

I found a place on the web that sells the sets of 36 Copic Ciao for less $$$, they also offer free shipping. This is the cheapest place I have found and they ship really fast, too. Click here.

Supplies:
Stamps - The Angel Company
Paper - DCWV luxury stack, Grey cardstock by Bazzill basics
Grey 5/8 grosgrain ribbon
Yellow brads
Flower paper punch - EK success

I love how the punchie daisies match the daisies in the watering can.

Super pretty card! I love how it's almost monochromatic. I have the best luck with Brilliance Black Ink or Ranger Pitch Black with my copics. Both work well for me with the Papertrey paper. I find the papertrey gives me the least bleeding and feathering.
