Today brings us to Day 2 of the honouring week, and today I wish to honour the talented, inspiring, best scrapbooker, card maker and Copic artist, she ROCKS! Any guesses?? Okay to not put you in anymore suspense, it is the lovely, Nichol Magouirk.
So I could not go pass sharing this fabulous, fun filled card that Nichol created, I love all the colours, the different layers and stamping layers, and oh who could go past this girls wonderful colouring technique.
Here is the card that I created to honour my friend Nichol..I love Pure Innocence stamps from My Favourite Things, they are just the sweetest to either colour with Copics or for that matter paper piece.
So to make this feel like a fun filled card like Nichols, I took the Ladybug stamp and stamped her onto some white card stock, colouring in with Copics, trimming around the ladybug and setting aside. Next, taking more white card stock and the Clouds background stamp from Hero Arts, that was inked with Soft Pool ink, I stamped over the top of the white card stock. I then took some My Minds Eye patterned paper, sketching a half circle and trimming out, distressing the top of the half circle and adding Peeled Paint distress ink over the patterned paper to give more depth, adhering this to the cloud background stamped card stock. I took the ladybug and adhered to the mound patterned paper using foam dimensionals. Taking one of the sentiment stamps and stamping onto the cloud background, adhering the whole card stock to more patterned paper from My Minds Eye with more foam dimensionals. Finally, I trimmed a white card and adhered the patterned paper to the card front to complete.
I love the way Nichol used lots of colour on her card and so to honour her as the wonderful artist she is I took the feel of colour and incorporated this onto my own.
So I hope you have enjoyed viewing both of these cards today and don't forget to pop over to Nichol's blog to see all the wonderful creations she always shares with us all.
Hope to see you all back here tomorrow with the next talented gal to honour!
