OCC: Creative Coloring

It's Day 7 of Online Card Classes' Clean & Simple 3: One Layer Cards class. The techniques today revoke around creative coloring (with markers). My coloring is usually done with Prismacolor pencils since I do not have Copic markers, but I did try this technique with my BIC Mark-It markers.

Here is my card:

I used 4 colors to create the vellum panel - Plumtastic Purple, Fandango Pink, Polynesian Purple and Petal Pink to create an ombre look. Since the word die was so intricate I did not die cut any tiny images like in the example. I really loved the tip to put the die cut word back in place to get those interior letter portions placed-genius!

Thanks for visiting!
