Friday 9 March 2018


The sentiment was created at the time I printed the image.

I've used Copics to colour it with and also a black Copic liner, a black polychromos pencil and a white gel pen.

Originally I was going to use some orange DP, but thought the green made the image stand out more.  It's from Studio Light.

The experimentation was how I created the speckled background.  I got very inky my own fault but you just go with these things.

I used some Copic blender on a sponge.  Then I used a black Copic to add some colour to the sponge.  I then flicked the sponge onto the card with my nail.  I repeated it a few times with black and green Copic.  I then added a few dot of black in with my liner.

I have orange and black fingers / nails today LOL!!

Hope you like my card, thanks for visiting
