Hello Oddies….Lynda here to share with you something fun.
I thought I would share with you a great way to stretch your pattern paper in your collection. First I started out by coloring the adorable Strolling Mae image using my copic markers. I kept each color pulled from my case so I could use them later in the project. I then fussy cut the image and then used my black marker to color the edges of the image. I then backed it onto white cardstock and fussy cut that image out again leaving a small white border around the entire image.
I then decided on my pattern paper. I picked this great floral pattern that was done in simple black and white.
Once colored I backed the print onto my card base made from green cardstock. I then adhered Mae to the card using foam tape. I then added my sentiment that I had printed onto white cardstock and mounted with the same green as my card base. I used this fun line tape to create the great black border along the card front. I also added some silver marker to her pendant so it shines.
I hope you liked this technique and will take a peek at how you can alter your pattern paper using markers.
