Vivid Vases Card

I was SO glad to see that "Vivid Vases" made it to the new catalog.  I had bought the set but had not used it.  I found a card to CASE (copy and study everything) here.  The card was featured using the new Blendabilities.  I do not have any of them, though I do have quite a few Copic markers which are the same thing.  It's matching the Stampin' Up! colors that is the problem.  So I thought I would go with the markers and a blender pen.  It's pretty but it does not do it justice like the original card is.  The colors are more vivid and they blended together much prettier.  I am going to save for those pens!  

So lets talk a bit more about my card.  After I got done coloring them I layered the image on a piece of Basic Black card stock.  That was then set in place on a piece of Daffodil Delight decorative paper and the base of the card is Whisper White.  I added a knotted piece of red ribbon. And that was it.  It's a very simple card to make and I do know for a fact that using the Blendabilities markers goes a lot faster than using a blender pen and markers or ink pad.  Plus you don't have to clean the pens when you are done, like you do with a blender pen.  

This was a fun card to make.  I love to color once in a while!!!  I like how bright and cheery this card looks but when compared to the original card it's not so vivid!!!  But I still like it and will use it sometime down the road!

Thank you SO much for visiting today,
