Polka Dot Sprigs and Vibrant Colours


Happy Sunday...sure hope you are enjoying your weekend.  It goes by too quickly doesn't it??  Today, I am featuring 2 cards I made for the Featured Stamper challenge at Splitcoast and the challenges going
on at Moxie Fab...create a window card. 
Here is what I did.  I created the main panel by using drawing circles with my Copics and then adding alcohol to blend.  I then stamped the new Polka Dots Sprig from Penny Black with black Memento ink..love polka dots. I cut a window using a square Spellbinders die so it would look like the piece is framed. I pop dotted the main image inside the window cutout and added the sentiment Thanks a Bunch. 





Here is the second one I made but I am entering this one in the Moxie Fab; create your own Background.
Still playing with my Copic markers, I coloured a grid pattern on my cs then dropped blending fluid drips to leave an impression. I then went back when the piece was dry, and stamped the Hillflowers from Penny Black and embossed them in black. I added twine for a simple card.
Thanks so much for coming by and taking a look today.

Supplies:  stamps; Penny Black/ Copic markers/ bl Memento ink/ pop dots/ twine

Karen, I LOVE these cards! Such bright cheeriness, and awesome colors. Thank you for sharing how you created the gorgeous, textured backgrounds with the copics - I'm thrilled to know this and will try it, too.

They are both wonderful, however, I am in love with the first one! Those colors are amazing together and I am a big fan of polka dots too! :)
