Wplus9 Lacey Layers Card

Hello everyone!!  I'm here to show you another card I created during the 30 Day Coloring Challenge hosted by Kathy Racoosin from The Daily Marker.  I have to admit I have missed, I think, two days.  Better than the last challenge, though!!

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.
Pretty Colors
Bullet nib and Extra fine tip

The stamp set I chose was  Lacey Layers from WPlus9.  I love Dawn's products so much!!  Anyway, on to the coloring!  I first found a scrap of kraft cardstock, which happened to be Neenah Desert Storm 80lb.  I stamped a few images and started to experiment with a few colors.
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!!
