Kennedy Grace Creations Elegant Card

Today is my Kennedy Grace Creations day to show off their gorgeous stamps!!  

Today I am using Graces little Note stamp set and Iced Berries Sequins. I chose the colors of Peach and dark Turquoise. Using my Copics sketch markers I colored the petals with R00 first, adding the darker color of R22 at the center of each flower. Then using R20 in strokes going away from the darker color toward the edges of each petal, gives the petals a realistic look. Straight strokes and then lifting up flowing away from the darker color. Following the same method with the following colors for the leaves using YG11, YG63, and BG09. Then using BG70 and second touch color of BG75 for shading around the whole image.  I like to stay with the blues for shading instead of the grays sometimes. 
The whole card just came together so easily but I didn't have ribbon so used R22 to color Seam Binding to match perfectly.
  I didn't have the right shade of ribbon so using Copic R22, and white seam binding, I colored it to match perfectly.

Other supplies included: MISTI, Memento Tuxedo Black ink; Spellbinders die with gold Recollections paper as well as their Blue metallic paper; Copic coloring paper was Neenah Bright White 110 lb.; Scrapbook Adhesives 3L tape runner and Crystal lacquer to adhere the sequins where I wanted; Fiskars 12 inch cutter and scissors.

Am also playing along with Kathy Racoosin's #thedailymarkerchallenge of coloring every day. It is so fun and relaxing!!!

  1. Beautiful flowers. Love that die, too. I like how the Copics can be used on seam binding.
    I sometimes put mine in a plastic sandwich bag and add drops of the refill color and smoosh it around for a mottled look. [Bunny]
