Thankful for You

This is my entry for Sunday's CAS Challenge over at The Outlawz.


This card was made using the negative space of a flower I had cut from black card stock with my Silhouette Cameo. The cut file is from their online store. I glued the black card stock onto a piece of white card stock. I had intended to leave it black and white, but my Copic markers started calling my name, so I went with it. For the petals I used R02, R14 and R17 and for the leaves and stem, I used  G20, G24 and G28. I wish I could have left it unmounted, because when the light shines through, it was such a beautiful color. I mounted the flower onto a piece of silver glitter card stock and then rose red card stock for the card base. The sentiment is from Gina K Design's Thankful for You Stamp Duo set, which I embossed with silver embossing powder. Then I added 3 silver pearls at the top and 3 silver pearls under the sentiment.

  6. Oh, Susan, I just LOVE using negative spaces! This is a real stunner, I am so glad you colored it. That has really inspired me! If I used the "negative", I would have just layered it on pp. However, you have inspired me to kick that up a notch! LOL I am just starting out with Copic coloring...but OMGosh, YOU make it look so easy, and gorgeous! The added texture from the negative must be amazing in real life! Thanks for sharing your talent and great ideas!
