My first card features “Friendly Lion” from Crackerbox Palace.  I wanted the image directly on my card base for a clean & simple card. The sentiment is from Whimsy Stamps called, “Film Strip Sentiments.” I finished off with a few black pearls and called it a card.

Be careful when you are coloring directly onto your card base with copic markers because they will bleed through if you don’t open your card or use a barrier between the layers when you color.  Ask me how I know!

My second card uses an adorable image by All Dressed Up called, “Little Treasure.”  I used my Copic’s in the trending colors of mint and coral and a great new Pebbles 6 x 6 paper pack called, “Cottage Living”.  The stitched base is a die from Simon Says Stamp and the circle die is My Favorite Things.  The sentiment is from The Craft Spot, called, “Tiny Tag 2.”
