PTI MIM #252: Shadowing with Copic Markers

When I saw the title of this Papertrey Ink challenge, I figured I was out of the competition because I don't own one. single. Copic. But then, I read further about shadowing with markers so I was saved. Danielle recorded a great video on how to shadow word dies using a Copic marker. My word dies are limited for this technique so it was a bit more challenging because the letters are so much closer together.  Using a marker also doesn't show quite the shadow that Copics do, but I tried. First, I'll share Danielle's beautiful "Friends" card and then my "Thanks" one. Isn't her photography amazing?

For my card, I combined a few other techniques learned from previous Make It Monday Challenges and the fabulous Design Team. I heat embossed the stencil, the Mum and also dipped the leaves in Copper Embossing Powder. The mum and leaves are popped up using SU Dimensionals. If you enlarge the image, you can see my shadowing. Sequins finished the card front before rounding two corners, adhering a layer of Tropical Teal and then a Stamper's Select White card base. 

Appreciate you stopping by and thanks for your comments!

Supplies: (all PTI unless noted)
Cardstock: Stamper's Select White, Aqua Mist and Tropical Teal
Ink: Hawaiian Shores, Tropical Teal and VersaMark
Stamps: Mum's The Word
Dies: Modern Background Stencils, Mum's The Word and Uncorked Words
Other: SU Dimensionals, Copper Embossing Powder, SU Marker and Sequins (all from stash)
