My card today was a happy accident... I was working on my first design team card for Inspired Stamps and stamped this cute tulip with stem and separate leaves to try coloring it with blue Copic markers. What do you know... when it was dry my experiment worked - and that's how you have a "happy accident"!
The Copic markers I used are YG67, YG63, YG61, B69, B66, B63, B60. I cut it out with a square Spellbinders die and embossed it & went looking for something to dress it up. I found just the thing in this Spellbinders Square Eyelet (?) die. I used my 1/8th" corner chomper tool on the edges of the white panel so they'd match the die it's layered onto. I really like this new tool!
I made the background paper with distress inks, Bundled Sage, Faded Jeans & Dried Marigold and an old Stampin' Up! Canvas background stamp. My sentiment is by Inspired Stamps from the "More Perfect Sentiments" stamp set. I inked it with Faded Jeans distress ink and I'm not real happy with the way it pooled on my clear stamp but that's what can easily happen with die inks. My background is kind of aged looking so I suppose my sentiment should match with the same look. The cardstock colors I used are Stampin' Up! Brilliant Blue & Garden Green with Neenah Solar White.
