Expressive Heart 3–by CS Designs

I was so thrilled to get to play around with another gorgeous image  by Chris Stern of CS Designs.  There are three of the Expressive Hearts (so far).  I sure hope she does more!

                              Expressive Heart 3

I found a tutorial on Split Coast Stampers for a “Swing Z Card”, and thought I’d give it a try.  This picture is of the card closed.

This is the “Swing” part of the card.  Partially opened (left), and fully opened (right).  I also found out about “Feathering” with copics.  In case  you aren’t aware it’s using two different colors and blending them together.  I used purples and greens, and blues and greens, for the feathering of the flowers on the image.  I like how it turned out.  Will definitely be using this technique more often. 

If you are interested in CS Designs, you can find all her images Here.  You can also join our group on the CDAC (Crafters Digital Art Center) site.
