An early start on mother's day 2017!

Although Mother's day is over I have prepared this cute little shaker card for next year! I love how coloring pops on kraft paper so decided to give it a go.  This is the first time I've colored on craft paper and I now most people do it in pencil but I don't have many pencils so tried this in copics.  I was a live and learn experience!


The Greeting Farm - Lucky Bunnies
Visible Image - bronte script
Lawn fawn - stitched circle die
Pretty pink posh - sequins
Wild orchid crafts - assorted flowers
Prisma colored pencil - white, cool gray
Copic - W6, W5, W3, W1, RV13, RV11, RV10, R20, YGO9, YG07,Y38, Y35

I used the fuse tool from we r memory keepers to make a pouch for the sequins.

This being my first time coloring on craft paper I looked for videos on youtube, and the ones I watched would lay down a white color first and then go on top with the colors they wanted to use but they all were coloring in pencil.  So I decided to try and lay some white pencil down first then go over it with my copics....bad idea after using my grays I noticed that white pencil had gotten on my marker tip. I tried coloring it off on a scrap piece of paper but it wouldn't come off.  Luckily it came off when I used my fingernail to scratch it off.  His tummy and ears and flower were just done with copics straight on the craft paper since I learned my lesson!
This bunny was done on the inside of the card with the shaker part acting as a window.
