Hello friends! How are you all? I hope you are well.
I am back with another project, today featuring a new Stamping Bella stamp that I got a few months back. And it is a birthday card for a crafty friend of mine, who I know loves Stamping Bella.
I have been working on my Copic colouring a lot over the last few months. It was never my “go-to” medium but I have really started to enjoy my markers, and this image is a lot of fun to colour.
This card is all about the colouring. I started by stamping the image using Memento Tuxedo Black (Copic friendly) using my MISTI. As always I do this so that I can double stamp, but I have to say these rubber stamps are just SO fabulous to stamp. I didn’t need to double stamp the image – it was so clean and crisp on the first attempt. At the same time, I also stamped the sentiment. I have learned by past mistakes to do this before I colour as it is often the bit I mess up and it’s a killer if you have painstakingly made the whole card, just to have it ruined by a wonky or mis-stamped sentiment!
I coloured the image using Copic sketch markers, added a liberal dose of Wink of Stella onto the hats and balloons and a few sequins to embellish. I forgot to write my Copic colour numbers down, but any colours work on this image – I used the packaging to help me pick mine.
I then just mounted the panel onto an A2 card base, with a few coordinating strips of card down each side.
That finishes the card for today. I hope that you like the image and give Stamping Bella a try if you haven’t ever tried their stamps before.
Have a wonderful week and I will be back soon with another project.
