Easy Copic Coloring, Clearly Besotted and Banner Loveliness

Hey there! It’s Monday and I feel like I need two extra cups of coffee this morning. Anyone else with me on this one? Lol!

I’ve been running dry on inspiration lately, so you know something really special must have happened for me to actually make a card! Enter this Happy Everything set from Clearly Besotted. LOVE!

The flowers are just begging to be colored, glittered and take center stage. I colored this one simply with three copic markers (just follow the lines of the flower – they practically tell you where to color!) and then added some Rock Candy Distress Stickles with a paint brush over the lightest color. (Thanks to the lovely Kathy Racoosin for this trick!)

I popped this flower up over some herringbone embossed pool cardstock and embellished it with one of my current favorite sentiments from Simon Says Stamp paired with this AMAZING banner die. Love! I love taking several different companies and pulling them together like this.

Here’s a closer look at the stamp set that has been inspiring me this week. Make sure to check out Clearly Besotted and tell them I sent you over! They’re not paying me to say this – I found them myself and liked what I saw. They don’t even know who I am. :)

Hope your week is off to a great start! Mine is off to a long to do list and extra coffee, but I like it that way. :) See you again soon – I have a fun post coming up this Wednesday that will be nice and dash-ing. ;)
