Uptown Girl Betty loves Books Card & Copic Colouring Video

Happy New Year! I do love the feeling of possibility a New Year seems to bring. Being a bit of a bookworm, one of my favourite end of year/beginning of year activities is planning all the reading I aspire to do during the year. Yesterday I thought I would go with that theme and create a card using an older Stamping Bella image – UPTOWN GIRL BETTY LOVES BOOKS. I also filmed the colouring process, so you can check that out too if you would like!

Here’s the card I created. As usual  I stamped the image using My Favorite Things Extreme Black hybrid ink on Make it Colour Blending Card before colouring with Copic Markers.

After colouring I added some sparkle to the image using a glitter pen – it’s hard to see in the photo, but I added sparkle to the stripes on her tights, the bottom of her dress, the letter A, and some of the books in the stacks.  I also added some Ranger Glossy Accents to her glasses for a fun dimensional touch.

Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you have enjoyed today’s post as much as I enjoyed creating it for you.
