It’s Wednesday, and this week, I used Bluebird – TLF015 from High Hopes Rubber Stamps new release for the main image and Kiss of the Sun – H223 (High Hopes Rubber Stamps) for the sentiment. I just fell in love with this image and sentiment and knew it was the perfect combination for a slim line card.

For my card this week, I stamped the images and sentiment onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my MISTI and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. The main image was die cut using my Cuttlebug and Essentials by Tattered Lace Dies – Easel Slider. The sentiment was die cut using My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Dies and My Creative Time – Rectangle Frame Layers. The image was coloured in with Copic markers. Once all of the colouring was completed, I went around all of the die cuts with a Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint pen.
I decided to make this a slim line card starting out with a white card base sized at 8.75″ x 4″. I just received some new Cosmic Shimmer Pixie Powders and just had to try them out. So I cut some Monte Marte – Watercolour Book – 190 GSM paper the same size and started playing. This background is the one that I decided to go with. I just loved the way it picked up some of the same colours as the flowers. The powder was easy to use. You just sprinkle some powder on the paper and spritz with water. You can’t really make it out in the photo, but the paper actually has a beautiful pearlesque look to it. I also went around all of the sides of the base with the Sharpie pen as well. I then popped up the sentiment and coloured image with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added some embellishments.
When I went to decorate the little flower embellishments with Stickles – Yellow, some accidentally went onto my background paper. I decided I really liked the look and then just added it everywhere using the tip of my stylus.
