Today I have a card that was inspired by Mary Witter a very talented lady and an excellent Copic instructor. Please visit her at her Blog. She is an instructor and demonstrator at "Stamps and More by Eleanor" in Greenville, SC.

As I said the card today was inspired by Mary, and I hope that I did it justice. Thank you Mary for the inspiration.


The stamp use for this card is from "Hero Arts" it is called "Dogwood". It is a very nice stamp that requires very little coloring. And as you have probably guessed, it was colored with Copic Markers.
The paper used for the card is from "Hobby Lobby" it comes in color coordinated packs and has quit a bit of paper in each pack. Very pretty paper, it is called "Handmade Paper".

One note on using the paper. It is very soft and fibrous. The only problem is when you go to adhere the paper. I found the best way is to use something like "Wonder Tape". If you try to use a tape runner, it tears the paper apart. You can see on the card that I had a hard time placing the mats to the card base.

I did not use a lot of colors on this one. The colors use were;
Flowers; RV11,Y00,YR23,E13
Leaves; YG09,W3
This is an easy card to make. Give it a try.

Hope you enjoy my efforts. Leave a comment as they are always appreciated.
Have a GREAT DAY!!!

    Wonderful dogwood card, Bob -- sometimes the simplest designs make the most elegant creations. Looks like a fun one to do.
