The Outlawz Copic/Promarker Challenge

Happy Friday everyone!  This week our challenge on The Outlawz is “Anything Goes”.  So let your creativity flow, just remember to use either Copics or Promarkers. 

Sleeping Flower

I used the “Sleeping Flower” image from ADFD.  I found a tutorial for a swing card, and it was real easy and fun to do.   I colored my image with Copics, then used the oval and scalloped dies from Spellbinders to layer the image.  The border punch is by Martha Stewart.  The purple card stock was embossed with a Sizzix folder.  Now for the “Swing” part……

Sleeping Flower Open

The top of the card opens by being attached with a brad, how cute is that!  It’s kind of like having a hidden pocket. The sentiment is a rubber stamp from C.C. Designs. I also attached it to a card, so that you could write something on the inside.  I hope you’ll give it a try, there are lots of possibilities with this technique.
