Good Morning Inky Friends! Today I am featuring Nicholas Firefly Frenzy, it was just released a few weeks ago.
I really like to give my card dimension. I usually stamp my image in a color that coordinates with my card...lighter than my final image. In this case I used Memento ink in cocoa. I then went ahead and totally finished my card.
I ended up with this! It could actually be finished as some people like the look of a non-colored stamp. But I want to take it a bit further and give this boy some color!
I went ahead and stamped him in Memento Tuxedo black and colored him with my copics. I used coordinating colors that went with the card layout colors. I used Honey Bee scissors to cut in close to the outline of Nicolas. I even cut off the grass and extra fireflies because you will be able to see them better on my original stamped image on the card.
I use pop-up dots and placed them directly on the original image. I then placed my colored image being careful to line up both images perfectly.
Here is the finished card! Hope you like it!
