Today's inspiration/idea came from Julia from Just One More Card. I have never tried this technique before and I have decided, I absolutely love it!! It's colouring on kraft cardstock using alcohol based markers.
I picked up some fairly inexpensive alcohol markers at Michaels.
|Bullet nib and Extra fine tip|
The die cut will come into play in a bit!
I decided on the green and pink and the orange and turquoise. I then stamped by panel and started colouring. I alternated the colors on each layer.
After I finished the panel, and of course not planning where the sentiment would be, that's when I die cut the above layer out. I hadn't done any inlaid die cutting in awhile so I thought this would be a cool way for the sentiment to be noticeable on the card.
I stamped the "perfect" word greeting from the That Is All stamp set and cut it out with the co-ordinating die. I also positioned the die in the already cut layer and ran that through my Big Shot.
I then, simply flipped the image over and adhered the two pieces together with Scotch Tape.
I foam mounted the sentiment on top of my panel, then stamped the "I think you're" onto a scrap of white cardstock, which I didn't like so ended up using more kraft. I added some sparkle using my Crafter's Companion Glitter pens to the centres of each lacey layer and to the "perfect".
And here is the finished card!!!
I hope you enjoyed! And I hope whoever is involved in this colouring challenge is loving it like I am!!
Thanks so much for stopping by!!
