Hi, crafty friends. I’m sharing a tri-fold card today, featuring one of the new Little Miss stamps from Streamside Studios.
I colored my scene with Copics on X-Press It cardstock and fussy cut right up against the black lines. This image has very simple outlines, making fussy cutting a cinch.
I covered the entire colored panel with sheer sparkle craft spray from Imagine, it adds so much sparkle, which unfortunately is hard to capture in photos. It’s there in real life, though, trust me. I glued my colored piece onto a thicker white cardstock, both for a bit of stability and to hide the back of the colored panel. Copics bleed through to the back (you want that, it’s actually a sign that you’re using a good cardstock for Copic coloring), and I usually add my panels to card bases, but this one was different. I scored the white cardstock at the bottom and glued the back flap to the back bottom of an A2 card base I created from Lovely Lady cardstock from Papertrey Ink. With hidden magnets between the layers of the card, it stays shut and doesn’t fall open.
You can see some of the shimmer in this photo, a couple of big droplets fell on the mushroom and the rainbow. I added pearls from the Igloo mix from Little Things from Lucy’s Cards for the mushroom, and used a black glaze pen from Sakura to make the eyes stand out.
Lots of Copics for this one.
