Happy birthday! {Mo’s Dream Team}{Ett trykk}

Hi everyone! Another Wednesday, and another Mo make. This time I’ve used More Tulips on this pretty simple card, published in the August issue of Ett trykk. We each chose one crafter as the source of out inspiration for an “Inspired by” article, and my choice was the über talented Marika Rahtu. Her coloring is like no one else’s, she rocks.

Marika’s cards are always very simple, keeping the focus on her gorgeous coloring. I’ve tried doing the same, but I’ve got a long way to go before I’m able to keep up with her level. I still had fun, though.

I printed my image with a very low opacity setting in Photoshop onto a piece of 4 1/4 x 5 1/2″ X-Press It blending card. I diecut the center of my image with a stitched reclangle die from My Favorite Things before I started coloring.

I colored the center panel with Copics before going over it with Derwent Artists colored pencils for details. The combination of Copics and pencils is a really fun one, even though I still need heaps of practice.

I stamped a Norsk Stempelblad AS sentiment over the vase and mounted my panel with a lot of foam tape for dimension. And that finishes the card. Simple, keeping all the focus on the coloring.
