Fabulous Friday at Frosted Designs!

Today's Fabulous Friday Challenge at Frosted Designs is to use a die cut! Easy peasy, right? and the Fabulous sponsor is Copic! Woot!

I recently received a die cut by Scrap FX and gorgeous Jillybean Soup papers in an awesome kit that I won and have used them for my design team project.

Here is the die cut and it's original packaging (isn't it adorable?):

Since the die cut is not white and I knew I wanted to color it with Copic markers, I covered it with white gesso.

I colored the tree with Copic Markers and also colored the grid for the window of the house. (YG06 - green, E47 - brown, R29 -red)

After I dry fit the papers for the roof and house, I decided I didn't like the window grid in red and painted it over with cream.

Here is the finished card:

I made it for my sweet aunt and uncle who recently put their gorgeous ten acre property on the market and moved to a much more manageable cottage in a senior community. I know this was a very difficult decision and transition for them and wanted to send them a little happiness.

I hope you will hop over to Frosted Designs and check out the other design team members projects, then join us in making a project using a die cut. Be sure to link it up for the chance to win an awesome prize from Copic!

Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments!

I love this! What a great idea. I've never thought of colouring chipboard with my Copics. Beautiful!
