Since I lost all of my crafting supplies in a trailer accident, it was time to make more DIY dots. This time I had a co-hort to make them with me, my mom. We bought the bright Perler Bead assortment pack at Hobby Lobby and the neutrals I bought on Amazon. I do have a link to a supplier with great pricing below. I chose Amazon so I could get them in one day. These make a great handmade looking...
Copic Coloring Project - Chinese Lanterns
I love the delicate look of Chinese Lantern flowers so when I saw this digi stamp on Power Poppy I snatched it up right away, which was back in the fall. Before I got the chance to color these, I lost my Copics. It took many months to get re-supplied enough to be able to color this beauty.
Here's the Copic sketch colors used (* denotes original marker with superfine nib):
Lanterns - YG11, YR01, 02, 04, 09, W3*
Berries - YR01, 02, 04, 21, 28
Leaves - YG03, 11, Y21
Branches - E23*, 37*, 77*
Sky - B000
I used my new Scan N Cut 2 to cut a very precise size brown oval that fits perfectly inside the Gina Marie Wonky Stitches largest die. I like that I can alter the size of basic shapes in .01 increments. The width of the SNC2 oval matched perfecly with the GM stitched oval. I finished off the image by adding white highlights using a white gel pen.
