A Copic-Colored Floral Eclipse card -- For Eclipse Day!

Today I'm sharing a few details here of this eclipse (how fitting for today's actual eclipse--LOL) card I made with Picket Fence Studios beautiful Brighter Days Gerbera Daisy set.  I have a reel over on my Instagram to show some of the process to make it!

After I stamped the beautiful Brighter Days Gerbera Daisy with Black Hybrid Ink, I used various Copic markers to color it.  For the flower petals I used: B32, RV99, RV55, R85, R83, R01.  The leaves are G28, YG67, YG17, YG25.  NOTE:  Before I colored it I used a black Copic Multiliner pen to extend the stem to the edge of the card panel.

Then I stamped the image again onto masking paper and used my scissors to cut it out.  I placed the mask over the image and inked Tumbled Glass Distress ink through the Center Polka Dot stencil.

This next step made me a bit nervous, but I die cut the image with the You Are So Extra Die. I die cut four more from white cardstock and layered them all together with glue.  I glued the stack to the shadow that I die cut from black cardstock.

I used glue to adhere the sentiment to the card.  I really love how this turned out!

I hope you've found my eclipse card inspiring!  I'm off to watch the eclipse--our area is in the path of totality!  Thanks so much for stopping by!

  1. Gorgeous! Man I LOVE your coloring, the eclipse design but the black silhouette of the sentiment sure makes the sentiment take center stage right along with your flower!
