Hello there! My tip this Tuesday is to think Outside The Box!
I don't know about you, but sometimes you have these gorgeous images to color...and they are just a tad large for the A2 size cards I prefer making. I have found that often I can think Outside The Box and use my larger image by cutting a piece off of one or two sides to make my overall image look a little less imposing on my card.
For this beauty I used the new Magnolia image Bouquets With Love WL13. I colored the image with Copic markers and accented it a bit with a white gel pen. Copic markers: B000, B01, B02, B04, R89, R85, R83, R81, E42, YG17, YG25, YR09, YR16, Y38, Y35.
Once colored, I then used a ruler and a pencil to size down my image. I fussy cut around the flowers as shown, popped my image up on foam tape and I have a bit more embossing interest on my clean and simple birthday card!
