Carrying on from last weeks technique – different colouring methods – today we will be using our Stampin’ Blends for colouring in our outline stamp.
When using alcohol markers to colour in you need to stamp your outline image with water based ink – my ‘go to’ ink for this is Memento. Don’t forget to reink your pad regularly so that you get a good clear stamped image. I good rule to follow is whenever you buy an ink pad always purchase the coordinating ink refill. Ink refills are not only good for reinking your pad but there are a number of techniques that use the reinker – watch this space.
The large image from Forever Blossoms is again my focal point of the this card. I normally let my ink dry for a few minutes before I start colouring. I’ve kept with the same colour combo as last week’s card – Petal Pink for the flowers and Mossy Meadow for the leaves and stem. I start off with the light Stampin’ Blend then add some of the dark for shading and then go back in with the light for the blending part.
The Concept Artists at Stampin’ Up! have done a lot of the hard work for us when they designed these stamps – they have given us the areas where the shading needs to go.
The panel of Champagne Foil has been dry embossed with the Parisian Flourish 3D Embossing Folder – it really highlights the design of this folder. The sentiment is from Peaceful Moments and has been stamped with Soft Suede and die cut from the Tasteful Labels die. The mat is Petal Pink and some Champagne Rhinestones have been added to finish off the card.
The same image has been partially restamped on the inside in Soft Suede and adhered to a Petal Pink mat. The card base is Thick Basic White.
I have one more colouring technique to share next week so check back same time for another installment.
Until then … happy crafting.
