TIOT25 - Lily Goes Red, White and Blue!

Welcome to Tuesday! Today we have an extra-special, extra-patriotic Try it out Tuesday challenge from Susana's Custom Art and Card Design! This week on the SCACD blog we can see in ONLY red, white and blue!

Here is my creation, it's a 4.25" square card featuring LILY from Pink Cat Studio, along with Tweet. This image is from the Lily & Tweet plate, available for the amazing price of $12.50 from SCACD! I stamped the darlings with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored with Copic markers. I added some highlights with the Ranger white gel pen when all the coloring was done. Cut and matted using Classic Oval Nestabilities. The rhinestones are Kaisercraft Diamond, and I used the same Copic marker that I colored her dress with to custom-color them to fit my palette. This is one of my FAVORITE tricks with the Copic markers - that you can customize so many different embellishments to the perfect color using them. They work on SO many surfaces, especially the plastic of the Bella Baubles, rhinestones, buttons, etc. -- I do it all the time!

Hope you find the time to play along with us during this holiday week! Color challenges are always fun and you can incorporate a 4th of July theme too if you are so inclined! Thanks for stopping by today, be sure to check out the rest of the red, white and blue spirit from the SCACD design team {blog links on my left sidebar}. See you tomorrow!
