I’m slowly adding colors to my collection of Copic markers after buying my first batch from Scrapbook Pal!  Last week I started this card using Stampendous’ Coneflowers set, stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Bee Paper Bleedproof marker paper.   After coloring, I lightly stamped a script stamp in black for added interest.  I then cut the panel down with Gina Marie Designs Stitched Rectangle dies, and used her Stitched Oval die to impress (not cut) that shape in the center.

The amazing thing about Copics coloring is that the backside is as beautiful as the front, but looks almost watercolored!  I was SO torn!  Which side to use??  Then inspiration struck!  Make color copies of both!  So I did!

This is the original colored panel, trimmed down and adhered to a layer of white card stock, then attached to a base card of kraft card stock.  Once again, StampendousBig Word Thanks sentiment stamps fit the bill; a while back I’d scanned and cut the word “you” from black card stock, so I glued three of them together, attached to my panel then stamped “brighten my day” with Versafine ink.  I love how cheerful this card is!  And I’ll keep practicing my Copics coloring!

My second card features the color copy of the backside of my original panel!  It’s constructed in the same manner as the one above, except I did die-cut the oval in the center and lifted it with a slightly smaller oval of fun foam.  The sentiment from Stampendous Coneflowers set fit perfectly in that space!  This is what you call a “two-fer”!  Two for the price of one!  🙂
