Club Anime Sketch: CAS7

Hi All,

I am so excited to post my first card as an official InStyle Stamps Design Team Member! I will be contributing for the 6 months from March through August!  I have fallen in love with their stamps, especially the anime ones!  Speaking of anime, they have a blog called Club Anime, which is devoted to that line of stamps. They often host sketch and colour challenges, and give away prizes!

Here is this week's Club Anime sketch:

I decided to go with a 5 1/4" square card for this one - I didn't feel like I would have enough room otherwise.  Since Easter is coming up, you know what theme you are going to see!

My card base is So Saffrom, followed by Whisper White, Basic Black, and Petals and Paisleys DSP.  I also added some photo corners with my Photo Corner punch in Black CS and DSP to the top right, and bottom left corners.  The 2 rectangle panels are also Whisper White, Basic Black, and DSP.  I added an "h" and an "e" to those panels - they are foam Thickers.  I hope you can guess what it stands for!  After all those layers were put together, I added some Tempting Turquoise Ribbon around the whole base.

Fo the main panel, I printed off Honey Bunny onto Neenah Solar White CS, and coloured her with Copics.  I actually printed her out a second time and cut her out, so I could use that as a mask.  I then cut the panel out with my Oval Nestabilities, and added the mask on top.  I sponged some Tempting Turquoise at the top for a cloudy sky, and some Old Olive at the bottom for grass.  I ended up stamping some random grass stamp at the bottom, and added some extra grass with my Old Olive marker.

Along the top and bottom are Robin's Nest Dew Drops, adhered with Mini Glue Dots.

Copics used:

Hope you enjoyed, and thanks for stopping by!

Hi Robin,

I love your cards. They are simply amazing. I do have a question for you inregards to the copic markers? Are they difficult to use? more importantly are they beginner friendly! I love the way your pictures pop using them, this past christmas I used water color crayons and pencils and did not like how they turned out, so I am looking for a new idea and would be interested in knowing more about the markers. Thanks
