Hello Sunshine!, Art Impressions

Happy Monday friends!  I'm on the Art Impressions blog today with a card using the fun Produce Stand MTF (mini TryFold) set.  It is definitely summer here in Texas with the temperatures over 100ยบ!!  Who is ready for fall?!!  I've only used these stamps once before--it was last summer!--so I thought I'd pull it out and make this cute notecard to send to a friend.

As with all of Art Impressions' TryFold cards, the instructions for the card size, scoring, and where to place the stamps are on the back of the packaging.  Makes it so easy!  I stamped everything using my new favorite Copic-safe ink: Ink on 3 Blackout Detail ink.  This ink stamps the lines a nice and crisp black and is quick to dry.  I haven't had any smudging at all with my markers!  

I colored the images with my Copic markers (listed below--I was shocked at how many I used! LOL!).  I used a black Micron 005 pen to draw some lines on the front of the produce stand.  And also, to create a frame on the final image, in the photo below.  

If you use alcohol markers, you know that they will bleed through to the back of your cardstock.  To hide that, I used some gingham paper on the two inside panels.

To finish up, I stamped the greeting included with the stamp set on the inside panel using Versafine Onyx black ink.  (I need to do a comparison of that and the Ink on 3!)  I used a sentiment from the Art Impressions Sentiment Set 2 and stamped it on the card front.  I thought it fit perfectly with the one on the inside.  

Thank you, as always, for stopping by and taking a look.  Have a wonderful, and crafty, week!
