Have you seen these adorable little birds from WPlus9?!
You can’t help but smile when you look at them. I couldn’t wait to get these cuties on a card. I picked them for my Periscope last week and received a request from a follower to share it. Since it includes lots of Copic coloring I thought maybe you guys would want to see it too!
I started by cutting a strip of watercolor paper and creating a subtle background. I used Windsor & Newton watercolors but you could easily get the same results with Distress inks in Salty Ocean, Blueprint Sketch, and Dusty Concord. After it was dry I stamped the wire and the birds in a black archival ink. This way I could adhere my Copic colored birds on top and have no issues lining them up. I adhered the watercolor piece to some blue violet card stock and ran it through my cuttlebug with the ruffled edge die from WPlus9’s Sunshines Layers Die.
I stamped the birds on a separate piece of cardstock, in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored them up and trimmed them out. The Copic Markers I used are: R32, R35, R29, R59, Y08, Y38, Y04, Y09, V00, V12, V04, and V09. I added some white spots to their bellies with a white gel pen and outlined them with a black pen. After I trimmed them out I used a Memento Tuxedo Black pen to run around the edges and give it a finished look. After I stamped my sentiment I popped them up on top with some foam tape.
Thanks so much for visiting!
