Susanne has done several video’s to help everyone understand this technique. I had to watch them and I’m not sure it I have got the technique right. I do want to leave the links here because if you want to try this all you will need is click here and you can view how to do this.  This is Video #1  Video #2  Video #3  Video #4

Copic Markers I used are:Skin E11, E00, E50. Blouse and Shoes E42, E41. Handel on the Umbrella E31, E30. Hair E19, E18, E08, E02. Pants and Umbrella BV00, BV000, BV0000.  On the Umbrella I also used a little G00, Y00 and to give the darker lines or the distressed look I used W3. I sponged around Tilda  with Brilliance ink Lavender. I used some Diamond Glaze and added a touch of Deco Art Glamour Dust to give some sparkle to look like rain drops. Corner rounder from Making Memories. Stampin’ up Word Window punch for the sentiment. Three Silver dots I made from The Pearl Pen.

The paper I have in the background is called Parchment Paper. This is what is called a Parchment Craft. I had followed a pattern, you put your parchment paper over the pattern and I traced the flowers with white ink by keeping the pen in an up the upright position to keep the lines as fine as possible. Then you turn over the paper and place it on the soft side of a embossing pad. Very carefully go over the flowers petals and embossing all the flowers. I did add some Stickles Star Dust to give my flowers some sparkle. When you do the entire card it is just stunning.

Thanks for stopping by. I always love comments. Let me know what you think, I love hearing from you.
