Covered Bridge Tutorial

Hello! Thank you for all your wonderful comments about my hike. It was an amazing adventure. Today I have a single layer card, make with my new stamp set, Country Roads.

I made my card base, using Pure Luxury Sandy Beach card stock, formed into 5 ½ by 4 ¼ inches. Then I stamped the covered bridge with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

I began by shading the roof and rock base with my C5 Copic marker.

Added W3.

I began coloring the sides with E19.

Added E17.

Then filled in with E31.

For the tree trunk and fence, I used E57.

To color the tree, I just added dots using several Copics, starting with YR14.

Added dots with YR18.

More dots with E35.

Then a few more dots with YG95. I also used YG95 to color in the evergreen trees and grass.

Added N5 to shade inside the covered bridge.

Added N3.

Then filled in with N1. I also shaded at the base of the bride with N1.

For the water, I began with B21.

Then added a little B93.

Stamped the sentiment with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.

Then I drew in a shade with my Tuxedo Black Memento marker, used a Spellbinders™ Nestabilities® A2 Matting Basics B die template. 

And that is it! Thanks for visiting. I hope you week is off to a great start!

Theresa, I love your card and your new stamp set. I was on pinterest tonight as I often am and saw this card and I wanted to share it with you. I think you are sooooooo talented and thought if anyone could make a card like this it would be you. Just wanted to give you an idea that I thought you might have never seen before.

Take care and as I have often said thanks for inspiring me!

Great card and tutorial. Love the covered bridge stamp! I didn't know you could use copics on coloured paper? I was told to buy special white paper. Could you clarify or list any cs you can or cannot use with copics? thx so much. bluemoonbyniteatyahoodotcom
