I created this card back in May for one of the VSN challenges. The image is from the April Monthly Mix It’s good to be the Queen from Lizzie Ann Designs. It was stamped with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock and colored with Copic Markers (YG00, YG01, YG03, RV00, RV02, RV13, BG0000, BG000, BG01). Patterns were added with the Inkessential white pen for more interest and the image was cut out with Petite Oval Nestabilities.


The card base is a 4 1/4″ x 8 1/2″ piece of Kraft cardstock that was folded in half. The bottom corners were rounded with a retired Stampin’ Up! corner rounded. The entire card front was covered with dots created with an Aqua Adirondack Paint Dabber. White gel pen dots circle those dots for more interest.

The sentiment is also from the April Monthly Mix kit. A bow out of White Silk Ribbon from May Arts was topped with a green Basic Grey Button and adhered to the image with a glue dot.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
Hugs and smiles
