Inspire Me Monday: Coloring with Copics & Pencils

Hello and Happy Monday to you all!  I'm Allison Cope your hostess for today's Inspire Me Monday.

Today I was inspired to color and share the process of making a card with only one layer.  I know sometimes people find making a single layer card challenging so that's what I've made today.

Grab a cup of something warm and join me in my craftroom...

For my card I used the stunning "Peony Muse" stamp set.  I chose to leave off a sentiment because I'm not 100% sure of what I'm going to use it for.  Leaving off the greeting allows it to become anything from a sympathy card to a birthday to even just a happy hello type card!  

Here's a close up of my card for you today...

Here is a list of the Copics and Prismacolor Pencils used:
  • Leaves:  BV34, YG17, YG13, YG01, BV32, Dark Green, Apple Green
  • Pink Peony:  R56, RV34, R21, BV34, RV00, Y11, Mulberry, Violet, Yellowed Orange
  • Peach Peony:  RV000, V000, R00, BV32, Spanish Orange
  • Lavender Peony:  BV23, BV31, V000, V01, Spanish Orange, Violet
  • Berries:  RV00, Y11, Spanish Orange, Light Umber, Tuscan Red

Thanks for joining me today!  I hope you enjoyed my video.  If there is any particular image you would like to see used in a future tutorial, please leave me a comment below.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Canadians today!  Happy Turkey Day!

This is so pretty!! I love using using pencils to add more details to the copic colored images, but somehow don't get to do it often! I will try this week. Thank you for sharing :)

Oh, Ally! This is a GORGEOUS card, and I love how you've matted the flowers and leaves! Stunning, and your coloring is out of this world!!! I always love watching your videos, and I loved seeing your Copic markers for the leaves...fascinating and one I'll definitely add to my list. And what a difference the pencils made. Stunning color choices for the flowers too, and I love how you finished the card! Fabulous! Thanks for markers/pencils you've used, and I would love to see videos on how about the Flower Bomb and also the Rose and Camomille...and even the Ruffled Wild Orchids (guess I have digis on the mind, eh?)! But truly, any videos you show I will LOVE!! Thank you so much for the time you spent on this video project! We all appreciate it...and you! Hugs and love, sweet friend! xoxo
