Hello everyone, I hope you are all doing well.
It seems like it has been a while since I made a card, a few weeks in fact, life has been busy. But today I am back with a simple card, using Copic colouring and stencilling.
Here is my card for today.
I got the floral stamp from a crafty friend of mine for Christmas, and thought it was high time I put it to use. I started off by cutting a stitched square from Neenah Solar White cardstock, and I stamped the image using Memento Tuxedo Black so that I could colour it with Copics. I used my MISTI to stamp the image as it is an acrylic stamp and I thought it may need to be stamped twice, but it did very well indeed. I have listed the Copics that I used below, and I went with bold colours, as I wanted the image to really pop.
Once I had finished colouring, I set the panel aside, and then took a 5″ x 5″ square base card. I masked off a border around the edge and then I stencilled some little dots for the background. I didn’t want to detract from the image, but wanted to give some interest, so I went with Weathered Wood Distress Ink and I used my Clarity Brush as I wanted a soft look, and you can achieve this more easily than with a blending tool.
I put some craft foam on the back of the image panel and adhered it to the base. I then stamped the sentiment onto some white card and popped it up using double sided foam tape.
Lastly, I added some Sparkling Clear Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish the card. Well at least I thought I had finished, but I decided to go back around some parts of the image and added some grey shading to help give it a bit of dimension.
A simple card, that is really about the colouring, adding in a little bit of stencilling for fun, because I find it hard to resist!
I hope you like the card and I will be back with another project soon. I wish you a very happy week ahead.
