Hi there! I was so excited to see the “Make it Monday” video on Nichole Heady’s blog today, because the featured technique is one I recently used when designing a set of Easter cards!
The technique I used was adding color (via copic markers for me) to a colored cardstock. I stamped PTI’s Harvest Gold cardstock with their Year of Flowers: Violets set using Versamark ink. Then, I heat embossed the stamped images with white embossing powder. Raising the image up with embossing really helps me when coloring – kind of provides more of a boundary, if you know what I mean. I colored the background using a Y26 copic and added some glossy accents, gold stickles, and white gems to the flower centers. A little printed sentiment with some scored lines finishes it off.
I think what pleased me most with this creation was that it turned out “clean and simple” while still feeling a bit “artsy”, too.
To see other’s takes on this technique, or to play along yourself, be sure to visit the link list on Nichole’s blog. Thanks for stopping in today!
