Everything Will Be Okay

Hey everyone!  Happy Valentines Day!

I'm popping in with a card I made over the weekend.  I bought this sentiment die from Altenew a while back and haven't used it, and it was time.

The stamped images are from my favorite Altenew stamp set, Beautiful Day.  I wanted a soft sketchy feel, so I stamped the outline image with WPlus9 Fairy Dust ink.  Then I went in with Copics.  I had three shades of green.  I sketched in a bit of the leaves using the middle tone, then used the lightest tone to really soften the color as well as color the rest of the outline.  The darkest was used to redefine the lines a little bit as opposed to actually coloring with it.  Finally I went in with a fine journaling pen to sketch in some of the lines.

For the flowers/berries, I just added a dot of a dark red, and softened that with a pink and then used the journaling pen for definition.  This isn't an exact technique, your image won't look exactly like the stamped one, with this technique you're really using the image as a jumping off point/guide.

Once the stamping/coloring was complete, I adhered my die cut.  I also cut one in red so I could use the heart here for a little pop of red.

Thanks for stopping by!
