Love And Laughter Are Forever | Picket Fence Studios Anniversary + Giveaway

20190514_213823

Hello and welcome!

Anniversary GraphicI’m so excited and honored to be a part of Picket Fence Studios’ month-day long celebration of their first anniversary.  I’m joining in the fun today and sharing a card featuring their stunning Wild Rose Bouquet stamp set.  I’m also sharing a special discount code for 20% off their entire store as well information on how to join in a giveaway for a $100 gift certificate to the Picket Fence Studios store!

The Card

I started by stamping the large floral image from the Wild Rose Bouquet stamp set* in Picket Fence Studios’ Copic-friendly Black Hybrid Ink onto an A2-sized piece of Neenah Solar White 80# Classic Crest cardstock. Then I got down to coloring with Copics.

I used RV63, RV66, and RV69 for the blooms, starting with the lightest color and then flicking in layers of the darker colors, leaving some white space on each petal.  Then I used G40, G43, and YG67 for the leaves.  I added a bit of Y17 for the center of the blooms and used a gold Unibal Signo gel pen to add some small shimmery details to the anthers.

To add a subtle drop-shadow, I outlined the image with a band of W2, and then blended it out W1 and W0 to soft the edges of the shadow.

I added a sketchy frame using a ruler and a black Copic 0.03 Multiliner pen, and then stamped the sentiment in black.

To finish, I adhered the card front to an A2-sized card base.
