happy wishes

Happy Monday! I hope you all are having a great day today! Today I have a card I made for my sister-in-law's birthday! What says celebrate more than beautiful lanterns? :)

I had so much fun coloring in the small lanterns from Lunar Lights with Copics. I like either adding a darker color across the lines in the lantern or using my colorless blender to take away color along the lines.

I also stamped the lanterns directly on the card and then stamped them on a scrap piece of card stock, colored them, cut them out and then added them over the directly stamped images on the card with a pop dot. It gives fun dimension and still has the look of the lantern "hanging" off the string!
