Hello friends! Welcome to my stop in Altenew’s 5th Anniversary blog hop celebration!

Coloring with Copics + Colored Pencil Details + Altenew's 5th Birthday Blog Hop

If you are just joining in the hop, you should have arrived from Lydia Evans’s blog. You can find the entire hop order down at the bottom of this post.

How I Made It
Coloring with Copics + Colored Pencil Details + Altenew's 5th Birthday Blog Hop

I’m honored to be part of this hop and bringing you inspiration using one of Altenew’s newest stamp sets, Darling Lily. This set features an elegantly illustrated lily, which I colored with Copic markers. To enhance the look of these lilies, I used Luminance Colored Pencils – sharpened to a fine point – which allowed me to get more detailed with the coloring.

On the white card base, I splattered Tarnished Brass Distress Stain for a touch of gold; then I layered the Darling Lily florals that I had colored and fussy cut out, onto the card. Toward the right of the flowers, I adhered a gold glitter Big Hugs die cut greeting from Memory Box, along with some supporting sentiments from the Altenew Be Strong stamp set.

I further embellished the card with a few iridescent, clear sequins from Hero Arts’ Snow and Berry mix, and some dots of the Nuvo Vintage Drops in Bohemian Teal; the turquoise color complements the florals so perfectly!
