Bright Sketchy Blooms


I know it's not spring or summer, but when I saw this gorgeous stamp at Simon Says Stamps from Stampendous, I knew that my colors were going to bright and springy. I wonder what they would look like with fall colors? I might have to try fall colors the next time I color Sketch Blooms by Stampendous.

Of course, my first step was stamping Sketchy Blooms on blending cardstock and begin coloring with Copics Sketch markers. I do recommend using a cardstock that is made for the blending of Copics or any other alcohol based markers. You will be satisfied in the outcome of your project.


Copics used are:
Reds: R30, 32, 35, 37, 39;
Pinks: RV00, 17, 63, 66, 69;
Blues: B21, 23, 26, 29;
Leaves: YG17, 21, +G28;
Background: BG000, 10, 11.

The next step was trimming the image to a 4.5” square. I added the blue denim cardstock to the front panel of my 4.75” card. I added white fun foam to the image square and offset it so the finished image would show the blue cardstock. I splattered blue glitter marker and finished with 3mm sparkling sequins. I really need to grow my sequin stash. I have fallen in love with them, along with Swarovski crystals.
