Sentimental Sundays - Favorite Sentiment

Favorite sentiment can be a bit of a tricky thing since it changes according to day and mood. But I picked the one that works for me right now, right here.



The sentiment is from a freebie set from Sentimental Sundays blog that Ann obligingly put together using my choices - wonderful! Image is from A Day For Daisies printed on pearlescent card and heat embossed. All the colouring is done with Copics - word of warning: markers behave more like paint on heavy coated card, traditional blending doesn't really work, you've got to use more strokes than circular blending and avoid applying too much ink as it will eventually just move around in little pools.

The papers, ribbon and cork button are from Pink Paislee. Lace and dragonfly from my stash. Tried to keep the card relatively simple to let the image work on it's own.

Copic colours:
Skin: E53/51/50/02
Hair: E49/37/33/43/41
Flowers: R27, Y17
Leaves, ground: BG99, G85, YG13, YG00
Sky:B97/95/93/41/00, BG000
Dress: B72, BG000

Be sure to check out the fab work of our Sentimental Sundays DT!
