Turquoise Stripes Card

Straight lines, wavy lines, and long streaks of color. After I finished this drawing, I thought it would make an interesting greeting card, but didn't want to use the original. So I printed my scanned image, reducing it by about 1/2 inch in height and width. See below for the finished card.
  • Copic marker colors used: BG05,32,45, B01,06,41
  • Drawing paper: Neenah, cut down to 4.25 x 5.5"
  • Greeting card ribbon: White 5/8" woven-stripe ribbon, colored with B21 marker and edged with BG32. I tied a knot in the middle and cut a V in each end with sharp scissors.
  • Greeting card paper: Top layer - printed onto Wausau cover stock; Middle layer - Papertrey Ink Perfect Match card stock (Enchanted Evening, from the 2009 cardstock sampler); Base layer - Papertrey Ink Stamper's Select note card, 4.25 x 5.5" when folded.
