It’s Erica back on the Alex Syberia blog today with a slim line card, and LOTS of copic colouring.
The Fabulous Floral Slimline Panel has become a bit of a fave with me, I love those big florals and think it’s just fab.
I’ve gone for a deep fuchsia/dark pink colour scheme this time. It’s quite dramatic and I’ve seen lots of colour combos used for this, just check out the rest of the design team for inspiration.
The Copics I’ve used are all lined up in the photo but just in case you can’t see it it’s, from darkest to lightest, RV69, RV66, RV19, RV17, RV55, R83 and R81.
I’ve gone in a flicking motion for most of the flowers, but did blend a bit to get those colours smooth. At the end, I did go in with more of the darkest colours to bring back more of a contrast in the middle.
When I had finished the colouring I fussy cut the flowers out, because I wanted to have a different background for the card, rather than a coloured one.
On a slim line card base, I added Gold String washi tape from Altenew and wrapped it around the edges to keep it clean looking. The washi tape wasn’t wide enough to go across the entire panel, so I had to use two pieces, however the gaps will be covered up by the flowers.
To finish off the card I heat embossed a sentiment from the Pure Magic stamp set from Ellen Hutson, in Rich Gold embossing powder from WOW! Embossing, on black card stock. Once this was set with the heat tool, I trimmed it down and adhered it to the card. It needed a little something else so I also added a ‘love’ diecut and some matte gold sequins.
With that, I’m all done for today but I hope you like the card!
Lots of love and happy crafting from Erica
