I really wow’d myself with this Easter card. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out. It was an experiment really. I was flying by the seat of my pants! I stamped the daffodil image from A Muse Studio ‘He is Risen’ on an A2, top fold, Vellum Cardstock card. I used VersMark ink and embossed it with white powder. It turned out very elegant. Then I decided to color the image. I pulled out my Copic markers and got to work. This is where the experiment part comes in. I am a certified Copic instructor, so I know that you shouldn’t really do a lot of coloring embossed images with your Copic markers. I decided to take a chance and do it anyway. I colored and kept a piece of clean typing paper beside me. After I finished an area with a Copic marker, I scribbled on the scratch paper to keep the tip clean. On the Vellum Cardstock, with the embossing texture, this daffodil looks like it was painted with fine oil paints. It is beautiful! This Easter card is an A2 top fold Vellum Cardstock card with a Lemon Whip A2 top fold card nestled inside. I tied the two cards together with Toffee Twine. The sentiment is stamped and embossed on Kraft cardstock and then shadowed with some W2 Copic marker. If you decide to try this technique be sure to use care and keep your markers clean! I hope you enjoy these Easter card ideas. Happy Copic coloring!
