Today I came up with two lovely examples. Creating my first card I started with Neenah Solar White paper and Sunflower Days Die Set. I used the negative part of the die to help me align and stamp the coordinating image from Sunflower Days stamp set. Next I proceeded with coloring using copic markers.
As always I’m leaving you all the numbers of copic markers used on this project: Y00-Y02-Y08-Y11-Y13-Y15-Y17 plus E99 and YR14; E53-E55-E59; YG00-YG01-YG23-YG17.
The card front was embellished with a light blue pattern inked through new Gingham stencil with Tumbled Glass Distress ink. I masked a window in the center of the card front before proceeding with inking by die cutting a circle on a masking paper and then applying the negative part directly on the card front. The sentiment from the same Sunflower Days stamp set was simply heat embossed on a piece of a black cardstock and popped with a bit of dimension.
Working on the second card I switched to Strathmore Bristol paper and VersaFine Onyx black ink since both are meant to be used with watercolor markers.
I stamped Sunflower Days stamp set and then die cut three squares inside the image as my intention was add color only to those three squares and pop them on a foam tape. As I mentioned before I reached to my Tombow markers this time.
In case you’re wondering, here all the exact colors used here: TOMBOW 055, 133, 192, 243, 451, 977, 990, 991.
The card front made from a kraft cardstock was embellished again with new Gingham stencil. I used Antique Linen Distress ink for a tone on tone look. Finally I assembled all the elements together popping on a foam tape the colored squares and the heat embossed sentiment and added more color by adhering a bunch of matching sequins.
