I thought I’d share the versatility of our outline/line art stamps and the different methods of colouring you can use. Today’s card is a mix of Stampin Write Markers, Ink and Sponge Daubers.
To get the outline of the image I used the Direct to Rubber technique which I shared here. I used the Early Espresso Stampin Write Marker (brush tip) for the flowers and Mossy Meadow for the stems and leaves. I then stamped my image from Forever Blossoms (page 68 AC) on Shimmery White cardstock.
To apply colour to fill in the outline I used Petal Pink and Mossy Meadow ink applying it with our Sponge Daubers. This allows you to get some depth to the colour of your flowers by applying the dauber directly to the centre of the flower then ‘tapping’ the daubers again to finish coverage of the image. You may need to use the side of the dauber so that you don’t go too far over the outline. Repeat the same for the leaves. This stamp set has a coordinating die set – Cherry Blossoms (page 180 AC) so no ‘fussy’ cutting required. I die cut my image after colouring.
The Petal Pink mat that has been dry embossed using the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder (page 185 AC). The sentiment has been stamped in Sahara Sand and die cut from the Layering Circle Dies. The ribbon is the beautiful Petal Pink 5/8″ Organdy Stripped ribbon and to finish off this card I used the Champagne Rhinestones.
For the inside I partially restamped the image in Soft Suede. Again this is on Shimmery White cardstock. The card base is Sahara Sand.
Be sure to check back over the coming weeks to see more ways to colour our outline/line art stamps.
Until next time …
