Hello Friends, How are you this Friday? Today is Day 10. of The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge and a Simon Says Stamp blog hop. If you are new to my blog and wondering what is the 30 day coloring challenge … here is more info.
Welcome to Simon Says Stamp “New Beginnings” Blog Hop. It’s always a thrill to be included with Simons talented line ups & to work with another awesome release. I love the variety in this release … there is a wide range of products such as stamps, dies, sequins, and even ink!! To start at the beginning of the hop go to the Simon Says Stamp blog here.
I created two cards and a video for the hop and with a little bit of Copic marker coloring, colored pencil details and coloring with distress ink.
Creating a bouquet with the beautiful stamp set called, ” More Spring Flowers” is aways something I enjoy. The sentiment I stamped the “Handlettered Encouragement” stamp with some versamark ink and used white embossing powder. A banner was cut and tucked behind the stems.
For the background I used some painters tape with distress ink to make some quick and easy stripes. I must add that using the new inks in this release would work beautifully for the stripes. A fine tip sharpie marker is permanent and works beautifully with Copics… that’s what I used to draw the stems even tho the stamp set has a stem… I thought it would be fasters to scribble stems rather thank stamp several.
Another card with the “” More Spring Flowers” stamp set. I highly recommend the matching die cut because it gives you more versatility to create a bouquet or giving a single stem importance. For this card I went for simple and in the video I show you how I “colored” these blossoms with distress ink.
The background was inked up the same way and the twine was custom colored with a marker.
