Flip Flop sunshine . . . technique challenge
I haven't done a technique challenge on SCS for a while, this card looked interesting. I've seen flip flop cards before but never tried one. The cuts are tricky, for me, because they are interior cuts . . . I'm interior-cut-challenged.
I am enjoying this big, bold sunflower from Mark's Finest Paper and this time I was brave and tried out my copics again. I don't think it came out too bad! I also am entering this into the Mark's Finest Paper blog challenge, to use corner punches. Pretty easy to incorporate into a card!
The first photo shows the front, the photo below shows the back. Don't you love that little flourish? I can see using it so many ways.
I know there are folks out there who keep careful track of their copics and show a dandy photo of all the numbers they used . . . I don't. I grab whatever and scribble a little spot on scrap paper to see if I like the shade and then color away. Then toss it back in the holder. So I used a variety of oranges, yellows and light browns. Thanks for looking!
