Helping Me Grow with Copics

Today’s card uses some masking and it was my first time trying this technique.  My flowers are from the set Helping Me Grow and my sentiment is in the Rose Wonder set.

I used Memento ink to stamp my flowers and colored them in with  Copic markers.  Using some masking paper, I stamped and cut out two flowers.   I stamped one flower onto my Whisper White card base and then covered it up with the mask.

Then I stamped on top of the mask to give the illusion of one flower being behind the other one.  Sometimes I had to place the mask on two flowers at a time.  It’s a fun technique!

I’m definitely a beginner using Copic markers but I do love them.  For my purple flowers I used: V01, V04 and V17 and the yellow ones are: Y1, Y15 and Y17.  I outlined the edges with C3. I wanted to use some Wink of Stella for a touch of sparkle but I didn’t have any on hand.  Don’t you hate it when that happens?!

Thank you for stopping by today!  I’ve listed all of the Stampin’ Up! products that I used below.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask!
