Die-cuts & Punches...

...is challenge #28 over at "The Paper Shelter".

As I was lucky enough to win their challenge #27, I now have a lovely new digi image to play with - so I did...
My card is a 6x6 card blank in smooth white CS. The background PP is from a Papermania paper stack and I actually used the 'hole' created by my Marianne die rather than the die-cut itself. Two of the edges are decorated with Martha Stewart 'Punch around the page' hearts. I also used the deep edge lattice hearts by Martha Stewart to punch out the white border at the bottom of the card. The sentiment is one of Lynne Salmon's digi ones from 'Sentiments4you' which I printed and then cut out using my straight circle x-Cut thin dies.
The image has been coloured using Copic pens. I also edged the sentiment using the pens.
The image has been mounted on 3D foam and attached over the lattice heart border. The sentiment is attached using a double layer of 3D foam to make it stand up a bit more.

The image was lovely to colour, although I did panic a bit as I had coloured about half of the skin areas with my E000 only for it to start running out (looks like I'll have to use different skin shades until they get some more in at Pinnacle Crafts).

Why not hop over to the challenge site and see what other folk have created........

What an adorable image Toni and you've done a wonderful job colouring it - as always! I love the border punches, they really add just the right amount of detail to your card.

You are getting a real dab hand with your Copics Toni! *Ü* Pretty card. Love the image. Congrats on your win and have fun with your niece on Saturday. TFS. ~Glen~

Have you though of getting the refills for the copics instead of buying a new pen. I have found cult pens to have the best prices,
