Friends to the end
I'm having just the best time playing with my new copic markers. Today's card is a vintage Penny Black stamp that was a lot of fun to color. If I'd colored this with my Prismacolor pencils (which I do enjoy very much using) the image would have taken me an hour or two to color and blend. With the copic markers, I think I colored this in about 15 minutes. I don't have a lot of markers yet so finding good color combinations for blending is tricky, but I was quite pleased with this card once I finished it.
This week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge site offers the challenge to make a card using only Penny Black stamps with the theme, BLOOMING GORGEOUS. Interprete the theme in any manner you wish. I think this Penny Black stamp is blooming gorgeous and fits the challenge.
Stamps: Penny Black and the sentiment is Papertrey Ink.
Patterned paper: K&Company
Coloring medium: Copic Markers
Embellishments: Stampin' Up! pink gingham ribbon, and Stickles glitter
It is a sunny with blue skies Sunday and I'm going outside. Lately that has been a rarity around here so I'm going to enjoy it.
