Round Easel Card

I've been absent from blogging again, but I'm back to share a round easel card that I made based off the OWH tutorial here

I followed the directions exactly (well, except for that part where I had to rip the whole card apart and re-cut some pieces because I attached parts out of order and in the wrong place).  This was fairly easy to construct and is super cute.  My only gripe is how little space is left for writing, but that can be overcome with an additional sheet of writing paper. 

I used an image from SU Lighthouse and the accompanying sentiment.  I tried Staz-on but it doesn't work well with Copics.  I guess it's Memento that everyone uses.  Darn!  I was so excited that I finally bought Staz-on, too.  Nevertheless, I used Copics to color the image.  I stamped the sentiment in blue chalk ink.  The cardstock is Bazzill (dark) and Pebbles Inc (light).  Eyelets are Making Memories.
 A little perspective:
Thanks for stopping by.  Don't forget to link your round easel card to the challenge.

  2. I'm late chiming in here, but had to say that I loved that stamp so much I went looking for it online and found the set on ebay. So, thank you for sharing! It's a gorgeous card and the sentiment is lovely, too!

    I've only had Copics a few months, but Memento definitely seems to be what to use. Also, I recently saw a card where the designer had embossed the ink after stamping, which raised the design and kept the color inside the lines. Bleed hasn't proven much of a problem, but I liked the idea so much that I'm going to try it when I make my cards this weekend.
