Last days of Summer


Good morning!

My card today features one of the fabulous illustrations by Mo Manning which you can buy in her digital shop here. I found it so hard to decide which ones to buy and plumped on this one....as summer will soon be over ;( What an amazing artist she is!

I coloured my image with copics....I'm feeling a little more confident with them now. I think I will build up my collection colour by colour. I first of all bought the Copic Ciao Set A but I found that while I had quite a few colours, they could not be blended well into each other. So now what I am going to do is buy a few pens a month and do it by colour family.

The flower centres have a little teeny dot of liquid pearls and although you can't see it on the photo the little bess have benn colored with a glitter pen..so they sparkle!

I tried to keep the layout of the card quite simple as I wanted the illustration to be the focal point. The sentiment was very kindly stamped for me by my talented friend Kathy. The flowers are punched from the MS hydrangea punch, layered together, curled, then edged with ink and a brad added to the centre.

I am going to enter this card into CCT , where the theme is Lazy Dayz and summer themed projects!! I am also entering the card into the Copic Creation challenge which is pink/red. My first time entering there!

Thanks for stopping by.

Have a fabulous day,
Judy

Hi Judy

LOVE the card, thanks so much for sharing. I have been looking at Mo mannings site for some time but have not purchased any YET becuase I need to find out the best way to print them to get the stunning results that you have. I colour in with distress inks and wonder how you get the image to print so well and still use water colour on the image - any suggestions would be much aprreciated!
Love your work have you on my google reader so I don't miss any of your posts - usually a quite stalker he he.

I'm with ya on the frowny face :( As much as my kids' bickering is getting to me, I am SO not ready for early mornings & chaotic schedules & oh so much homework. Summer goes by much too quickly, & most of it didn't even feel like summer!! We only had a few days above 80!! Anyhoo.....your coloring is gorgeous & you should be proud of it!! The image is adorable....just an all around perfect SUMMER card!
