Greetings friends. So far I have shown you Easter cards for Spring, but now I feel like it is time for a St. Patrick's card.
Today's card is all about Copic coloring. Here is a breakdown of all the colors I used to color the Irish dancer (named Bailey O'Beebop):
Dancer's skin- E000, E00, E02, R20 (cheeks)
Dancer's hair- note...I did a "scribble" motion when coloring to give the impression of curls- Y21, YR21, YR24, YR18
Dancer's dress- G09, G12, G14, G17, Y15
Highlight around dancer- B0000, B00
Shadow under dancer- C1, C3
To make the background, I layered two Cover a Card backgrounds to get a look that resembled patterned paper. First, I stamped the Distressed Denim background onto white cardstock using Pistachio ink. Next, I stamped the Shamrocks background on top with Shamrock colored ink
As a finishing touch, I added a strip of medium green cardstock in the middle and stamped one of the borders from the Lindsay Borders clear stamp set. I absolutely love that border set. It is an older release, but I use those borders all the time to add finishing touches to my cards.
Items Used on Card:
Bailey O' Beebop D19969
St. Patrick's C19957 (on inside of card)
Distressed Denim Cover a Card CC051
Shamrocks Cover a Card CC153
