Make It Monday #7






                          For Make It Monday #7 , our challenge was to use copics on colored paper.  I actually learned a lot from this Make It Monday video, more so than the others as coloring with copics is probably the most difficult thing for me to do when stamping.  I can never seem to get the shading right.  Starting off with some color, made the shading a little easier for me.  I used Sweet Blush cardstock for the tag base and stamped the Friendship Jar daisy image.  I colored it with Copics RV 10, 21 & 23 for the pink and YG 91 & 93 for the green and Y32 & 35 for the yellow daisy center.  Here's a close-up of the shading:
 I got to used my new Pacific Vinyard impression plate on the Spring Moss cardstock base. It makes such a nice subtle background texture.   Background Basic Woodgrain is stamped onto Simply Chartruesse with the sentiment from Simply Sentiments.  I stamped a small border in Ripe Avocado with a fiskars punch and added some zig zag stitching for a little more texture.   The doily is in Berry Sorbet which I thought brought out the bright pink tone in the flowers. A Ripe Avocado bow is tied through the Tag Sale #3 focal point.  This was both fun and a really good learning experience for me.  Thanks for taking a look.
