Strawberries

This is my second post today.  Scroll down for my hedgie card.  

I have several of these old style PSX stamps and I thought it would be fun to color one using Copics.  I used this week's sketch at CAS(E) this Sketch.



The stamp has words around the outside, but I cut them off, leaving a frame with some of the elements outside the frame.  I stuck the image onto Whisper White cardstock, stamped a simple greeting and called it done.

Here's a close-up of the image.




This card is destined for a friend who is going through a tough time at the moment.  




Thanks for looking.

Edited for Cindi, who left a comment querying the colors used:  Below is a photo of the Copics I used for coloring. Hope this helps.



Products used:

Stamps:  PSX Strawberry stamp; A Dozen Thoughts
Ink:  Brilliance Graphite Black
Cardstock:  Whisper White
Accessories:  Copic Markers

Cheers
Karren

Such a 'delicious' card Karren. Your colouring is gorgeous and I love those ripe red strawbs!

Such beautiful coloring! I always enjoy it when other people use stamps from long ago and make such a great card like you did! I have the cherry frame from PSX that hasn't seen the light of day in a long time! You inspired me to use it again although I don't have copics or the skills to do that kind of coloring...

Love this card. The coloring is great. I have several strawberry stamps, but never seems to get the colors just right. Would you mind sharing what colors you used on the strawberries and the leaves? TFS

Well done, Karren! I have some old PSX stamps, too, but no way could I ever color them as beautifully as this!! Hugs, Darnell

Wonderful coloring on this image, I think you did the right thing cutting off the framing words!

Hi Cindi, I've edited the post with a photo of the Copics I used. Thanks for asking.

Beautiful image and beautiful coloring Karren! Love the font on the sentiment as well.

Your hedgehog card is wonderful - love all the layers from the paper tole technique. And such a fun and bright color combo. Loll xx
