Hello everyone! I am very excited to be sharing a card with you today as a guest designer for Honey Bee Stamps! I chose to use the adorable Not Too Shabby stamp and die set in today’s card, as I love the whimsical images in this set.

In the video below, I will be sharing how I created this card from start to finish, including how I used both Copics and Zig Clean Color markers in this card to achieve the look I was going for.

Using multiple mediums on a card is really fun, as it allows me to achieve the exact look I am going for, since every medium creates a different effect. Since I wanted a layered, textured look in the sky, I used the Zig markers, mainly because they react with water so well. For the stamped images, using Copics was my first choice because of the smooth shading and control I have over where the color ends up.

The tag background was created with Zig Clean Color markers. I layered multiple colors together – many times – to create the multi-colored sky. The colors I used for the sky were:

  • Light Blue 036
  • Peacock Blue 038
  • English Lavender 803
  • Violet 080
  • Emerald Green 048
  • Marine Green 400
  • Light Pink 026
  • Ochre 063

The images such as the banners, the birds and the mason jar, were all colored with Copic markers. The colors used for the images were:

  • Birds: R14, R27, R59
  • Jar: BG0000, B41
  • Jar lid: T2, T4, T5
  • Hearts: RV13, RV14
  • Banner: Y11, Y38, B00, BG02, G00, YG41, RV10, RV11

I hope you will check out the video and see how this card came together! A big hug of thanks to Melissa and Lisa for inviting me to guest design for Honey Bee Stamps this month… I had a blast!!!
