Altenew - Garden Treasure + Copic Coloring

Hey folks!

Happy-ish Monday! I don't know what in the halibut it is peeps, but every time I think I'm going to do something different. Break out some mediums I've haven't used in a while. Do something other than flowers, it's abracadabra I have myself a card panel with lots of pretty masked flowers that must be colored in with Copic's. Oy. So, stop me if you've heard this one! I'm back today to share a card with lots of pretty masked flowers, that I had to Copic color.

If you're interested in any of the products I've used, I have links (some affiliate links) throughout and at the end of the post. Click here to read my full disclosure policy.

Doesn't Altenew have the most fab flower stamps EVER? I never get tired of coloring their flowers. So for my card today, I chose to use the Garden Treasure Stamp Set. I love it. It's a nice sized 6" x 8" set with all of those gorgeous layering options Altenew is known for.


As usual, I started by stamping my masks on some Inkadinkado Stamping Mask Paper and trimmed those out. Then, using my MISTI Stamping Tool, I stamped all of my images on Neenah White Cardstock with Hero Arts Intense Black Ink. You could totally use a stamp block instead of the MISTI, but I knew I was going to make more than one card so the MISTI was a must.

I did the Blue-Green card first. I had this idea that I was going to make it more monochromatic. As in all varying shades of Blue-Green, but once I got down to coloring the lil flowers on the end I chickened out and decided to go with orange. I will have thumbnail links below if you are interested in my Copic choices for both of these cards.


For my second card, I was inspired by a shirt my daughter was wearing. Copic RV63, RV66 and RV69 are my favorite red-violets and I thought that large center flower would be groovy in that color.

For both of my cards, I used a T-Sqaure Ruler and really just played around with a couple of "faux frames. I lightly added them with pencil first and then when I decided I didn't hate it, I went over the lines with a Copic Multiliner.


On the Blue-Green card, I used a Sakura Stardust Glitter Pen to add details to the inside of the flowers. On the Red-Violet Card, I used a Uni-Ball Signo White Gel Pen. I really wished I had stayed with what I had done on the BG card, but what d'ya do?

On both cards, I used a Sakura Clear Glaze Pen to add a teensy weensy bit of dimension to the black dots and the inside of all the flowers. No card is complete in my world without some Clear Wink of Stella


I really felt like I had probably more than enough going on both of them so I left off any embellies. I attached them both to 4.25" x 5.5" in card bases and called it a day.

That's it! Easy peasy.

I really hope you enjoyed my cards and as always, thanks sooo much for stopping by to see me!

Until next time!
