Painting with markers and blender pen, today’s pleasant poppies and beautiful birthday card is clean and simple (CAS).
Instead of stamping the entire image from pleasant poppies, I inked with the stamp side up carefully making sure to only get early espresso ink on the four left most poppy images.The stitched grosgrain ribbon was attached to the left side of the card and then knotted twice onto the ribbon and card front.Poppies were colored using gumball green, daffodil delight and primrose petals stampin’ write marker and a gel pen. Letting the marker ink to dry between coats allowed me to add multiple layers of color and depth. As a finishing touch, a white gel pen was also used to add highlights around the daffodil delight poppy center.This is my June ATC for a swap group I belong to.. the theme was purple. The Hero Arts violet image was stamped in gumball green ink and then colored using wisteria wonder, pale plum and wild wasabi markers. The focal image was framed using designer series paper and embossed wisteria wonder paper…. hope the recipient likes my purple ATC!
See you tomorrow with more CAS cards in keeping with this weeks SUDSOL blog tour theme, followed by a new Super Saturday Tutorial… hope you’ll continue to follow along as I begin my journey using brand new stamps and supplies from the latest Stampin’ Up! catalog!
