Warm Hugs

Hello all. Kia here with you today to share this Winter card.

The stamp is from Penny Black, and is called Conifer Wreath. Normally I would colour this type of stamp in my MISTI using Tombow Markers and spritzing with water, but today I wanted to use my Copic Markers for a change.

So to start I stamped using Ranger Archival ink in Sepia. The Archival ink line works wonderfully with Copic Markers.

I like to work on my Stay-tion when doing cards like this as I use the magnets to hold the card in place while I am colouring. There is nothing more annoying than having the card spin on me.

I proceeded to colour the greenery, first using Copic Marker Y02, then coming back in and adding YG17.

Moving on to the Pinecones I coloured using Y00, Y02, Y13, Y17, YR04, YR07 and E35, E37, E57. I like that touch of orange in there on a few of the Pinecones.

For the sentiment I die cut 2 pieces from 100lb cardstock, coloured them with Copic R17 and glued them together, colouring the edges as well and glued them to my card base with Nuvo Adhesive.

I then stamped a random “Warm” sentiment using Ranger Vermillion ink as I wanted to make a connection to the Winter.

I am happy that I kept it as a single layer tent fold card as there is a lot of fussy with the Conifer and the simple design works well with the Wreath.
