Popping in really quickly with another card – this time a perfectly flat card. I also added a little technique, as shown by Jennifer McGuire – Day 8 in class, by using my Copics to add some subtle detail to the flowers. I LOVE how it turned out!

  26. hey there, where can i find the “how to”?

    • Hi there,
      This card was really simple to make. First I stamped the image in Versamark watermark ink, sprinkled with white embossing powder and then heat set it. I went around the outside of the stamped image with a light grey Copic mark (C-3). I also added a little bit of shading to the flowers using Copic markers BG10 and BG49. It was that simple.

  27. that easy??? wow. where can you buy the copic set? this looks so pretty!!

  28. Marion, I found your card on Pinterest and fell in LOVE with it! So I had to try my hand at it too.
