I have an almost one layer Easter card to share with you today!
In the end I decided to trim it and mat it on a panel of Astrobrights Eclipse Black for a little extra.
I had lots of fun coloring my Lilyboo Designs New Easter Bonnet digital image with Copic markers and Copic refills. I also used Lilyboo Designs Easter Eggs to help make my scene. I merged the two digital images in my Publisher program after turning them into png files in Photoshop Elements. I also used my Publisher program to draw the box around the scene, it comes out so much nicer than when I do it by hand. No smeared ink either!
Lots of Copic markers!
I used the Copic ink refills to color in the background area. I use a Q Tip dipped in 91% Isoprophyl Alcohol to wipe on the background area then saturate the other end with the refill color I'll be using and spread it around. It gives a more even look than coloring a large area with the markers. Sometimes it's best to repeat the process if it isn't as smooth as you'd like it. I also go back and outline everything with the same color marker as the refill and blend, blend, blend.
My card looked bare so I added a Spellbinders tag from the Tags Trio set and stamped it with an Easter sentiment from Papertrey Ink and pulled a yellow metallic ribbon through the tiny hole.
