After choosing my image, I then went looking for the paper I wanted to use, so I could match the coloring to the paper. I chose another piece from the DCWV Fresh Floral Paper Stack.
Since this was my own sketch design, I didn't feel the need to alter it too much! I just chose to change the sentiment strip into a ribbon and have no sentiment on the cover of this card.
I colored Avery and her duckling friend using Copic Markers.
Rain coat & Boots: YG17, YG13, & YR18
Duckling: Y21, Y15 & YR07, YR04
Skin: E02, E00, E000
Hair: YR23, YR21, Y15
Shading: N3, N1 & BG10 for the outline
I cut the image panel with a stitched rectangle die, and matted it on a light colored green card stock--I did cut the top and left side of the panel off to make it look right fit into the corner like it was.
The card base was printed on my printer and reads "Rainy days are just an opportunity to dance in puddles".
For finishing touches I of course added the orange ribbon and bow. The image panel was raised on fun-foam, and I added "rain-drops" with Sea Breeze Nuvo Jewel Drops.
