A scenic background using copic markers and dye inks

Hi there and welcome to another Merry Little Christmas Blog Hop where we create Christmas designs all year long.

Today's card is a scenic background set in an almost rectangle frame. The bottom of the frame has a wavy look to it made by masking off the area.


Materials used- Neenah Solar White Card stock, Red and white cardstock.

Medium-Copic markers R35, R27, B04,B05, B06, Bo2,B00, B000, YG17, YG03, Y07, Y05, E39,E15

Inkers-Simon Says Stamp dye inks used were Surf blue, Island Blue, Audrey Blue and Cotton Candy.

The image was stamped in the middle of the cardstock using Wendy Vecchi Black Archival Ink. Using copic markers , I began colouring the buildings first in different colours to give them some interest. Just a slight hint of green was added to the trees and blue to the snowy areas.

Once this was done, I taped around the edges of the cardstock and added the wavy mask which was previously die cut. Beginning with SSS Cotton Candy, I coloured the area around the image. After doing this, I added SSS Surf Blue, Audrey Blue and Island Blue. Now it looks abit green because there was some yellow distress ink on my work surface which I unfortunately did not notice but I still love the look.

After removing the tape, I trimmed the background and adhered it to red and white cardstock, because what is a christmas card without the colours red and white.....

For added interest I stamped a botanical plant 3 times to give the card the illusion of a foreground and background. The sentiment is from Penny Black Collection "Joy and Happiness" and a peppermint red twine adds further sweetness as an embellishment.

Hope you like today's card and I look forward to seeing you back here again.
