Good morning! Happy Friday! Emily Midgett here with you today to share a card that’s a little outside of my wheelhouse… I don’t generally truck in puns, but as my kiddos have gotten older, they can appreciate a good pun, and anything to make my littles laugh, amirite? I needed a birthday card for one of their little friends yesterday, and I thought the adorably fluffy Lily the Lamb with her cute little sentiments would make a perfect card for a newly minted 5 year old! I’ve been playing along with The Daily Marker challenge religiously, but concentrating mostly on flowers, so I thought I would try my hand at some no-line critter coloring with my Copic markers. Let’s get started!

I began by stamping Lily onto some white, Copic-friendly card stock using very pale ink. I then used my Copic markers to color her using the no-line technique, taking special care to add more shadows behind her head and beneath her ears, so as to get that contrast between the areas behind her head (which would be darker) and her head (which would be lighter).

I die cut Lily using just the outline die from the coordinating die set.

Next, I stamped some presents with the same light colored ink onto more Copic-friendly white card stock and colored them with a pretty aqua and red color scheme, again using no-line coloring. I layered them over some die cut grass, which I’d cut from green card stock and layered using both liquid and dimensional adhesive.  I added Lily using dimensional foam adhesive, then set about stamping my greeting.

I added this punny sentiment from Lily the Lamb to the top of the white card front. If I had to go back and do it again, I would add some pale blue ink blending to the top of the card base, but hindsight is 20/20, right? Oh well. The bright green grass and pops of color from the stack of birthday gifts add plenty of color to help balance the white background and black and white sheep. 🙂

Well, that’s all for me today! I hope you enjoyed my punny little project. Thanks so much for visiting, and have a marvelous weekend!
