Super Simple One Layer Copic

The longer I stamp, the more I prefer cards with just stamps, paper, and ink. Oh, I still use dies and embossing powder and other tools, but my eye is increasingly drawn to super simple. And this card is as simple as it gets.

Ran a folded card, made with Gina K 120lb luxury cardstock, through the Big Shot (I keep a clean plate just for this purpose). This is thick cardstock and flattening it with the Big Shot gives a crisp crease and fold.

Stamped the sentiment from Altenew's Bamboo Rose with Memento Tuxedo ink (my Hero Arts Intense Black ink, which is darker, is dry.) Stamping the sentiment first makes it easier to place the flowers. Colored with copic markers. Added dots from Essentials by Ellen Bokeh Dots.

This is going in the mail today to a friend.

MOOD WHEN DONE = Happy with the card. Still haven't started my Christmas cards. Maybe I'll listen to some Christmas music to get in the mood...

I love your kind of stamps, paper, and ink cards. They never look quite right when I do them, but I have to admit most of my cards are a lot simpler than they used to be. These roses are so pretty. They are the type of simple and whimsical images I'm drawn to. I know... so where are those images on my cards? Sheesh!
