I put vellum over the top of the image to give it more of a soft touch to the card.

HUGE Congrats card

Today’s card is a fun card that I created using digital stamps from Craftin Desert Diva.

I printed the images out on white cardstock and colored them with Copic markers. I also used a white gel pen to add some highlighted details. I cut the images out and then used black ink to go around the edges of the cutouts.

craftin DD huge congrats

I really need to get in the habit of writing down which markers I use during a project – if you have any helpful hints to share on how to do that please share them with me, I would love to read them!

Thank you for stopping by and Happy Stampin’
