Taylored Expressions Color Me Background -Happiness

Hello Lovely.  Today I have a card a made last week.  Let me start by saying I love this background stamp from Taylored Expressions.  It's so fun to color.  For this version, I used my Copics.


I started this card, with no real direction.  I knew I wanted to stamp and color the Color Me Background from Taylored Expression, but how this would come together wasn't really clear.  I stamped the image onto a white panel using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black Ink, because it's Copic friendly.  As I colored I started thinking about fussy cutting part of the design.  I completed the portion of the design I wanted to fussy cut and inked the edges of the piece using a black Pigma pen. I then adhered the piece to a white card panel.

Of course, we all know I can't seem to make a card front without using the Stitched Rectangles dies from Simon Says Stamp.  I used the largest rectangle and die cut the card front, which gave it a more polished look.  I wanted to keep the rest of the design simple.  I didn't want to take away from the hand coloring.

I elected to use a sentiment from the Words Defined set by Mama Elephant.  I stamped the sentiment using my favorite VersaFine Onyx Black ink and then completed the card by adding it to a pine green card base.
