iCopic Colors Revisited

After I finished my first card for the iCopic Color Challenge (#11) and before I put my markers away I decided to use them again on another stamp. This time I chose two Stampin' Up! sets, 'Loads of Love' and 'Loads of Love Accessories'.

Here is my birthday card.

Copic markers
R20, 22, 24, 27, 29
E00, 11, 21, 25, 27, 29, 30, 31
YR12, 15, 20, 23, 31
W00, 1, 3, 5, 7
Stampin' Up stamps
Papertrey Ink white cardstock
Memento black ink
Flair Designs paper
Bo Bunny dot paper
Petaloo flower
Recollection flower
Dress It Up buttons
Sewing Machine and thread
Bazzill cardstock

Here is a close up of my embellishment.

The dog was a button. I removed the shank so the button would be flat against the twine and flower. I used  model railroad 'rail cutters' to cut off the shank since they will cut flush (flat) against the button. I think the rail cutters do a better job than wire cutters when cutting off button shanks.

Thanks for stopping by. Check back tomorrow for the Your Next Stamp 'Blog Hop' to see the January releases. LC

Good to know about the cutters. I tried cutting a shank off with wire cutters and lost a button in the process. (Ha)
