Video: Bird On Cherry Branch - Copic Coloring - Spellbinders Guest Design

Hey folks!

In today's video I'm showing you how I make a card using the Spellbinders Shapeabilities Bird On Cherry Branch Etched Dies Flower Garden by Sharyn Sowell and Copic Coloring. If you’re interested in seeing what I did with the Botanical Butterfly and the Botanical Dragonfly you can see those HERE and HERE.



You can watch the video on how I made my cards HERE. You can also click on the thumbnail link below.



I started by die cutting the entire BIRD ON CHERRY BRANCH Die Set from Neenah SOLAR WHITE Cardstock. I chose bold bright colors for al of my coloring. I knew I wanted the bird to be blue and the cherries red, so I picked the other colors around those two. You can see my color choices in the thumbnail links below.

When you are coloring with Copic's, it’s always a good idea to have a piece of scrap paper underneath your work. If you color over a nonporous surface the ink hat’s saturating through your cardstock has no place to go so it tries to reabsorb through you cardstock and it can can you colors to bleed. 


I colored the die cut the flowers and leaves from BIRD ON CHERRY BRANCH as well. I used the Spellbinders TOOL N' ONE to shape the flowers. Then added 3M FOAM TAPE to the flowers to build them up so they would look more dimensional once I attached them to the larger die cut. 

To give the cherries a little more character, I added some Hero Arts LACQUER to them and let them dry. Do be sure they are completely dry before you add any foam tape to the back.


For my panel, I did some ink blending with Tim Holtz Distress Oxide FADED JEANS Ink. I started in the lower left of the panel and made sure to fade it out to white in the upper right. Once that was done, I splattered some shimmer spray across the front.


I made sure to trim my card panel down 1/8” on aIl sides, then stamped a sentiment in Wplus9 BLACK dye ink. Then I attached the entire bird die cut to the front of the ink blended panel.


Using the same ink that I used for ink blending, I stamped a Simon Says Stamp DIAGONAL STRIPE Background Stamp on another 4.25”x 5.5” panel. 

I added FUN FOAM to the back of the bird panel and attached it to the striped panel and my card base. I finished it off with Studio Katia SPARKLING CRYSTALS.

That's it!
