MIM #107 Clear Card & Copic Coloring Basics

Nichole Heady challenges to make a card using clear cardstock.
She shows us a few Copic Coloring Basics as well.
Just returned from Corona, CA., on a trip to visit my daughter and her family,
and their new home they just move to.
This card, and a gift basket will go to them.
Used Boards and Beams Stamp set and dies.
This set has the cutest homey sentiments!
Luckily there was a great scrapbooking store (Wootens), in Corona, where I was happily lost for a couple of hours! (Well, it was a large store!)
The owner was so sweet and shared some of the new items just in from CHA, and I filled my basket with some new 6x6paper packs. This one by Authentique was screaming Spring.
All double sided,love when that happens!
The trees are stamped on pattern paper, with a few of the leaves and the trunk colored in.
A few closeups show some detail. The clouds were given some dimension with T1 copic.
But they're hard to see as I put them on the green inside layer.
Double Ended Banner is die cut from a coordinating floral, and stamped with the sentiment.
Fences are diecut from Hibiscus Burst cardstock and accented with a white pencil.
Pretty pattern paper gets some stamping with a sweet sentiment.
Don't you love that saying?
Back is stamped with a stamp from 'Handmade Hodgepodge'.
Always try to sign the cards I make, and it helps to have sweet little stamps to showcase name and date!
Thanks, Nichole!
This was so much fun, I know I'll be doing more cards like this again.
