Fourth of July cards

I tried this digi twice for 4th of July cards and here's what I came up with. The bigger she is the easier it is to color her swimsuit. However it's still a tiny piece of clothing even if the image is large. I printed her out onto Cryogen cardstock and colored her I. With Copic markers. I didn't pay attention to the colors I was using-I'm kind of feast or famine on documenting my Copic colors per image. That week we were at famine. Once she was colored in I die cut her out using Design Objectives dies. The patterned paper is by Bo Bunny and the red cardstock is by Hobby Lobby. That red piece is border punched out but I can't tell by which one. The chipboard sentiment is by The Paper Studio and the sequin is by Craft Medley. 

My next attempt at her is average or maybe a little below average when it comes to newbies coloring with Copic markers. I just don't do it enough to get the practice in. I wanted this image smaller for a couple of reasons; the card base is smaller. I received these cards one box free for spending so much and the second box of pre-made cards with envelopes for $2.50. I decided to give them a try since they are made of Core'dinations cardstock and it's good to change up the size you do to get a different perspective. Just like 12x12 scrappers doing an 8x8 book for a change. 

Printing the images this small I was able to get 8 images on a sheet of cardstock. Less waste of the expensive paper needed for Copic marker coloring. After I colored her in I die cut her out with Spellbinders die. I punched a bunch of red circles for the background. Then I embellished with a Quickutz star die cut, rhinestone by Making Memories, a sequin by Craft Medley, ribbon and a K and Co sentiment.

Happy fourth of July to you all and thanks for stopping by.
