So the story was I blew major moola for more Copic Markers yesterday arvo. I'm broke, but never been happier :) Here's a card I made last night, I really love how intense the colours are! I wish I wrote down the colours I used so I can share them with you. I'll do that the next time, promise! I used beautiful summer sunrise cardstock from PapertreyInk for the base, then to lift it my stamped image up I stamped a smaller piece of summer s. with PTI's 'Guidelines'.
My cute Magnolia girl image [courtesy of Ying Pang, thanks Ying!] is coloured with Copics & matted onto stamped vellum[stampington & co and PTI vintage cream ink] & craft cardstock. Orginally there was a cross hanging on the necklace but to get in tune with V-day I adhered a Prima centre kissed brown heart on top of it.
The saddle stitch ribbon is bought from a local store @ Textile Centre and the sentiment is from Heroarts. I hope you like this card as much as do! Here's a closer look:
Don't you just love the background cs I stamped with 'guidelines'?
Ok, on to the next card! The card below is actually the first image I coloured with Copics [with minimal supply, think the Copic Ciao 12 marker set + EOO for skin + colourless blender]

I think it came out pretty ok :)
Anyways, if you have some heroarts stamps & intend to make some V-day cards go by their blog to join in the V-day love card challenge this week!
Thanks for coming by , do say hi!
