Vital Rose Card and Video

Hello friends!

Today I’m sharing a card created using one of Power Poppy‘s newest digital stamp sets, called Vital Rose.  It’s one of those images that looks amazing no matter how you color it.  Seriously.  

Originally, I had planned to watercolor it (because GORG); but I had just come off a couple of days of really pushing myself out of my comfort zone with watercolor.  So, I just really wanted the comfort of my Copics.  I chose a unique color combo for roses, using a selection of blue violet Copic Markers. It was a fun process, even if it created a pretty lengthy video. 😉 

This card was definitely more fru fru than I’ve made in quite some time.  I pulled out some old Spellbinders Label dies.  These are Labels Eight and Decorative Labels Eight.  Both of these are still available in the Spellbinders store.  Just click the links above.

The ribbon is white seam binding that I dyed with a coordinating Copic Marker.  Easy peasy.  I finished the card details with a smattering (such a fun word) of white sequins.

I printed the rose in pale gray ink onto X-Press It Blending Card, and colored it with the following Copic Markers.

I really didn’t use all that many markers for this one!  You can watch me color the image in the video below, and maybe glean some Copic coloring tips along the way.  I’ve included a brief lesson in Copic color theory in this video.  I hope you learn something new & enjoy!


There’s one step I neglected to mention in the video, and that’s the addition of white gel pen “speckles” & “spatter” on the background around the image.  It added a bit of wonderful whimsy to the already-speckled background, and I’m kinda digging how it turned out. 🙌🏻

A Wonderful Day

  1. Wow, Cindy, this is a stunning card, and I love the beautiful die and ribbon you’ve used! Your friend must have loved it! I loved watching and listening to your video, and I learned a lot. I definitely will try a small image with the no-line coloring. You’ve inspired me, sweet friend! Thank you! Hugs and love! xoxo

  2. What a gorgeous rose, love the colours you used. The card you made with it is stunning, I have been neglecting my dies for to long and have to dig in to them to find my lovely label dies to make such great cards. Thank you so much for showing in the video how you coloured this.

  3. It really is a fabulous card. I admit I sucked my breath in when you went to add the shading around the rose after you completed coloring the rose. Thanks for the video.

  4. I so enjoyed this video of your coloring the rose. As always the image is perfectly drawn by Marcie, but you really brought it to life for me. Love your creative spirit.

  5. I absolutely amazed that someone can create such a beautiful rose! I am printing out the picture for inspiration. Wow! Thank you for the wonderful video.
