More Valentine Release Cards!
My first card features the Steampunk Drifter image. I colored the image with the following Copic markers: W7, W5, W3, W1, E49, E47, E44, R85, R83, R81, RV93.
I framed my image with a simple pierced border. The designer paper is from BoBunny's Enchanted Collection. I colored some of the flourishes with Copics to coordinate with my image.
My second card features the adorable Duck in Tub image.
I colored the image with the following Copic Markers: W7, W5, W3, E49, E47, E44, YG67, YG17, B00, YR16, Y38, Y35, Y32.
I decided to go with the Cracked Glass Technique on this image for a more vintage feel.
I colored my image, then covered the image with Versamark ink and some Ultrathick Embossing Enamel and heated the image. I repeated this process 5-6 times and then placed my image in the freezer between two bags of tomatoes. This keeps the image from curling up too much when it freezes. After about five minutes I took the image out and carefully cracked it for the cracked glass effect. I did not add additional ink to my cracks...I didn't want too much of a grunge feel since I was making this into a baby card.
The designer paper is from My Mind's Eye Lime Twist Life of The Party Collection. The letters are American Crafts stickers that I colored with my Copics and embellished with coordinating gems.
