Clearly Copics Out On the Patio

Today's challenge over on SCS is Crazy for Copics. Well, I can use all the practice I can get! I love the markers, but to be honest, it is hit and miss right now when I use them. I am getting better and do love how this turned out though. I used an image from SUMMER ON THE PATIO, a new release from FLOURISHES. Designer paper and white stampers select is from PAPERTREYink. Yellow papers are Prism, Sunflowers light and medium. Memento Black Tuxedo ink is used along with various Copic Markers. Sorry, I did not write down colors. Inside view to show you card stock placement on front and back of this crystal clear card stock base. Where I stategically placed my adhesives is behind this layering so it will not show when card is complete! The clear card stock is so so nice, heavy but yet as it's described, crystal clear. Love the simple photo corner and sugared embellishment to tie the colors of the flowers and dp together.
Thank you so very much for the kind comments and congrats on my recent FLOURISHES guest designer spot! My heart is warmed and I hope you know I sincerely appreciate you taking the time to write them! You will want to stop back tomorrow for a clearly (hint) terrific creation! See you then!

What a beautiful card in all respects! Love the trimmed border and the way you used the photo corner punch. Fabulous idea there! This is my favorite stamp in the set so I'm thrilled to see it used. A wonderful design for the clear cardstock, too. Your coloring looks pretty darn good to me!

Oh WOW!! I soooo have not been able to make my copic coloring look even close to this amazing!!! Of course, it's too easy to go back to Prismas and give up on my Copics........okay, you've inspired me to keep trying! I would LOVE to make something this incredibly gorgeous!!!

Beautiful card/coloring! I wasn't sure, but did the yellow cardstock go all the way to the fold inside front and back? I'm assuming it does, since that would leave an awful lot of paper not attached along the fold edge. I'm so intrigued by this clear cardstock. I'm probably going to have to order some. I just bought some Prismacolor pencils and will need to learn to shade with them before moving on the Copics, but I love what you can do with those! As I said, it is just beautiful.
