I got to use my new Impressibility Dies! And I was experimenting with making a vintage fabric kind of look.
My favorite way to color with Copics is to lay down a light color for a base and than add darker tones for shading. I then go back and blend the darker tones with the light base color.
For these roses, I used RV-10 for the base and just colored in the entire rose.
Then I added other, darker shades of RV (11, 23 and 34) in the areas where I thought there should be shadows. Then I just went back and blended with the RV-10 again (here it is pre-blending).
For the background, I cut my Prism cardstock (Crabapple Medium) and embossed it with the Flower Impressibility.
The instructions on the spellbinder website recommend spritzing the cardstock lightly with water before embossing, and I found I got a deeper impression when I followed their directions. My sandwich was Wizard white plate, Impressibility die, Tan Embossing mat, a few pieces of cardstock for a shim, and the second white plate.
I wanted a vintage look, so I inked all my pieces with Vintage Photo Distress ink and a duster brush. For the embossed background I left the Impressibility die in place and pounced the inked brush over the background. (I cleaned the die by blotting it with a baby wipe).
So that was my Mom’s day card. I hope all of you Moms out there had a great day!
