This last week I went to visit my parents, and my mom put an order in for 4 birthday cards. To save time, I printed a Power Poppy image that fit the width of a sheet of Canva-Paper, then flipped the image to print it a second time... I wanted the cards to be similar but unique. Here's the full set...
I colored both images with Copic markers - I'll list the colors below. Since I had a lot of area to cover, it was so nice to use the Canva-Paper - easier to blend color, and less colors were needed to get good gradients and shading. I colored the full sheet at once, then split it into card sized panels.
When the coloring was done, I pulled out my craft sheet and smooshed and spritzed some Distress inks on it, then laid the panels into the ink for a distressed background...
I love that this paper is resilient enough to handle the wetness, and also that the printed ink and Copic ink were unbothered. It added such a nice vintage touch to the image that wasn't there with a plain white background.
I used my MISTI to stamp 4 birthday sentiments, then positioned them where they seemed to 'work' best.
This is a great way to mass produce cards and still come up with unique results! The image I used is HERE - another beauty from Power Poppy that works well in several different orientations, as well as this split image!
These are the Copic colors that I used:
Have a great week - I'll be over here trying to get caught up, doing some research on papers for this new printer, and working on some new things for my store!
