It's Monday and I want to get a super start on the week, so I prepared a super easy peasy card. There are days when we need a card that doesn't require loads of work or hours to prepare. I hope today's card will fit the bill.
For today's card I used the largest focal image and sentiment from the Summer Blossom set.
Here's the card:

If you are a recent follower to my blog, I will warn you that I have been playing with a lot of different techniques for coloring cards. Today is no exception. I started with Classic White cardstock then stamped with Memento Black Ink, I then used these Copics to color and shade the flowers.
I used my Copic Air gun and sprayed the entire image using this collection, it slightly changed the colors or the different colors, slightly, I was OK with that aspect. It gave every thing the same tone of aqua.
I removed the blue tones from the areas I wanted to remain white using my Copic Colorless Blender, then I shaded back in again using the same color collection. The Copic Colorless Blender is often called a color mover or lifter. That is what I did today...I lifted the color off the areas and cleaned off the blender tip on my working sheet of paper ( I always have a sheet of legal size paper under my work). This kept my tip clean and allowed me to remove the color I wanted off. Kind of reverse thinking.
The rest of the card I kept really simple, using a Spellbinder dies embossing folder and pearls to accent. No ribbon. no stick pin, no flower embellishment...Really simple. Some times this is just the perfect thing. I got my note right off in the mail.
I hope you enjoyed the straight forward approach I used today. Thanks for taking the time to visit the Atelier.
