Winnie & Walter – Leading Lady Week 2

Welcome back, Friends!

It’s week two for me as a Winnie & Walter Leading Lady!  Last week, I shared a shaker card made using simple stamping and adding shading using colored pencils.  I’m focusing on a different medium every week and this week’s card is made using Copics.

Copics are my go-to coloring medium becauseI love how they blend.  I have to admit – they take a lot of time to perfect sometimes and I know that’s intimidating for a lot of people.  Fear not!  I’m here to tell you – you don’t have to be a professional to color beautifully.  Every color choice and blending is all in the artistry of the marker holder – that’s you!

I die cut a dotty heart from the True Dotty Heart Cutaways using pink cardstock to create a focal point on my card.  I propped it up using some foam squares to give it some dimentsion.  Then I stamped and colored a bunch of flowers and leaves from the In Bloom:  Carolina’s Florals stamp and coordinating cutaways sets.  I find that googling a flower sometimes, helps me visualize.  That’s what I had to do for the daffodils on this card, anyway.  I really didn’t spend too much time on the coloring either – it helps to have images that are smaller ;).

I layered all the pieces on this die-cut heart and imagined where I wanted all the pieces to sit and once I as happy, I started gluing it all down.  Some of the flowers and leaves are under the heart also.

To complete the card, I stamped the sentiment from the Sentimental:  Gift set on black paper and embossed with white powder.  I left a lot of white space on the card because I felt this focal point is all the card needs.


This month-long feature will be every Saturday in June.  If you stick around until the end of the month, you could win a fabulous gift card from Winnie & Walter.  I will be drawing a winner from comments on my blog (on the final post) at the end of the month!

  1. Love how you made the heart & flowers the focal point at the bottom of the
    card. CAS with a powerful punch. Love it! (And yep, I’m one of those intimidated
    by Copics; I have a few that I play with, but … lol).

  2. One of my favorite cards–love it! The heart for the background is wonderful–never would have thought of that! Amazing how you perfectly arranged the bouquet & you make me want to try using my COPICs for more than coloring pearls! Thanks for the inspiration!
