Thank you to the brave men and women who have made the ultimate sacrifice. This card’s color pallet was inspired by the colors in our American 🇺🇸Flag.
I created this card using images from the Bumblebee and Roses set from Annie’s Garden.
I stamped the flowers onto a A2 size card panel using Memento Black Ink on card stock that is alcohol ink friendly. I used 110 lb Hammermill paper.
I started coloring the leaves using my COPIC markers. Y04, YG07 and G09 were used to color the leaves.
I don’t always go ahead, as I like the ink to be wet when coloring so that the colors blend automatically, the work is done for you when you apply the ink layers while the ink underneath is still wet, or at least damp.
To color the RED roses, I used the following blend: BV23 (shadow/under paint), R22, R24, R29, and R39.
COPIC Blends are as follows:
- Blue Roses – B01, FBG2, FB2, B12 and B18
- White Roses – C1, Y000 and RV000
- Bumblebee – Y000, YR23, YR27, FY1 and BG11
- Wood – E57, E53, E51, E50 (shadow BV31 & E13)
Once the Copic coloring was complete, I used Prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to add extra depth to the shadows. Thank you for your support. Please like and follow! Happy Crafting!❤️
