You're Love keeps Lifting Me...

Good morning!

My card today is a super quick one that I was so tickled with when it all came together...

I used Gina's Eclectic Summer StampTV kit stamps as well as Carolyn's Whimsical Autumn pussy willow stamp for the trees to make this summer scene. The kite was colored with Copic markers and then highlighted with the StarDust glitter pen as well as Crystal Lacquer.

After shading the 'tree trunks' with a Copic marker, I took my SU Wild Wasabi ink and a dauber and shaded in the tree's leaves. Then, I took two fine point green pens and colored in the leaves to help them pop against the ink. The sky was shaded with some chalks.

To help the trees really stand out, I took Sakura's Clear Glaze pen and traced the trunks and leaves. This pen dries really quickly and is great for a quick punch of shine. I like to use this pen with Crystal Lacquer would be too hard to add to such tiny details. You can see the difference in the shine in this photo...


And, the inside is as simple as the outside...

Thanks for stopping in - I hope your day is beautiful!
