Thinking of you

It's always a good time to send a thoughtful greeting card to someone who's going through a difficult patch.


This card begins with the digital image from Conie Fong, called "Butterfly Daisy Bundle" available at https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/772101414/


I coloured her dress and flowers in a lovely dark shade of teal, using Copic Markers T8 BG78 BG49 and BG45. Rather than going for the streaky filaments of hair look, I blended soft shades of brown using E59 E37 E35 E34 E31.


Funny story...I thought that she was wearing gloves, so I coloured her hands in a dark pink. Only during the colouring process did I realise that she wasn't wearing gloves. By then, it was too late! I had to just go with it.



The rest of the colours are:

Pinks: R37 R35 R32 R30 R000

Black: 100 T8

Skin: E04 E02 E01 E00 E000 E0000

Background: BG11 BG000 BG70

White gel pen for dots

Colourless blender

Black fine point marker for dots


Mounting it on a card in a scalloped oval feature, I added a sentiment from Stampin' Up, pearl dots and some floral background paper that I once got from a crafting magazine, coloured with Copics R30 and R000.


The die set used for the ovals was from Ultimate Crafts - Telopea Waratah.


Finally, the flowers used came from a stash found at a garage sale many years ago. I coloured the pink ones with matching Copics, glued them all on and then used Nuvo Dream drops, spreading it around in a circular shape in the centre of each flower. While the Nuvo was still wet, I sprinkled white/clear fine glitter over each flower and tapped off the excess.


Card complete! Use it as a Thank you or for Sympathy card. It's for sale here at https://www.sandrascards4u.com/product-page/pink-promise
