Hello and thank you for stopping by my blog post today. I always enjoy participating in the North Carolina Demos Blog Hop. Such a talented group!
I am always learning, and having only been a demonstrator for the past several years, one of the things I learned today is the term “line art”. Thanks Tracie for clarifying. Basically, it is any stamp that you can color in.
I love to color and in my card this month I am coloring with my beautiful Stampin Blends Alcohol Markers.
I am making an effort to make new masculine cards. I naturally gravitate towards all of the wonderful flowering stamps, and I don’t feel comfortable sending males a frilly, flowery card. I guess Im old school that way.
So lets get started. I began my card with the Crafting Forever Stamp Set and my trustee Momento ink pad. Here’s a tip- when using alcohol markers for coloring in an image Momento ink works great and your colors wont bleed into the lines. For my Stamp and Write markers, that I also use for card making, I use my Stazon ink pad.
As you can see in the above photo I ran the grouping of three pens 3 times horizontaly across the front of my Whisper White Cardstock .
I colored each pen in a different color combination, with my Stampin Blend Alcohol markers. I added a piece of Tranquil Tide ribbon toward the top of the card. I stamped the phrase Birthday Greetings from the stamp set Birthday Delivery, using the black Momento ink. I punched out the phrase using the Tailored Tag Punch. I lightly sponged the edge with Crumb Cake ink. Dimensionals were used to make the tag “float” above the ribbon.
The Whisper White piece was adhered to a piece of Basic Black cardstock cut at 5 1/4″ ” X 4″. Then both were adhered to the front of Whisper White Cardstok A2 size card. I did stamp a pen on the inside of the card and one on the envelope. For the sentiment inside the card I used the saying “may all your wishes come true” from the Bright Wishes Stamp set.
This is a simple card and great for coloring.
Again, THANK YOU for stopping by and Happy Stampin!
