I've only ever attempted no line colouring once, on this card, and that was with pencils. Trust me to pick a busy image to try this technique out with copic markers. I was a little intimidated at first .... all those petals .... but by breaking it down to one petal at a time it ended up being really easy to colour. And, I love how it turned out.
I stamped out the Floral Oval stamp from Whimsy Stamps with Ink on 3 Fade Out ink and coloured with the following copic colours:
R46, R27, R24, R32; YG67, YG63, YG03, YR23, Y11
I also coloured the holly leaves from the Christmas Branch die set with the same greens I used on the image. I've done this before on my previous card and think it makes the die cut leaves look fab, definitely worth the few extra minutes it takes. The white leaves are frm the same die set.
The poinsettia flowers are handmade from paper using the Lily Flower die set that I first coloured with distress inks and watercolours to get the shade that matched the coloured flowers. Once everything was adhered in place I added some crushed glass glitter to the flowers and leaves, some Platinum Stickles to the border of the top layer and some pearls.
The sentiment is a digi one from the Christmas Sentiments set, and the papers are Prima from a few years ago.
And now I'm off to hit the shops to do some Christmas shopping, gulp. Wish me luck!
