Hi there! Today, I am sharing my last projects as a guest for Simon Says Stamp. It’s been so much fun to play with the beautiful new release products, and I so appreciate Heidi giving me the opportunity! I have two projects to share with you today, both featuring no-line coloring with Copic markers. My first project is a more traditional technique, while the second one features a new-to-me technique and involves a stencil! I even have a video to show you how I did it. Let’s get started with the details!
My first project uses that absolutely gorgeous new Daffodil Field cling stamp. I stamped the beautiful background onto some white Hammermill cardstock using Hero Arts Contour Ink. I used my Copic markers to add lots of vibrant color to the image, trimming it down so that it was just slightly smaller than a typical A2 card front. I added two thin strips of grassy green foil cardstock on either side to add an extra element of texture.
For the greeting, I die cut the detail layer of the Love You So Much Basic Box Card die twice from white cardstock, then adhered it to a vellum base layer. The vellum helps to soften the areas around the sentiment die cut so that it stands out on the colorful patterned background panel!
I added the sentiment die cut in the center of the floral panel using clear foam adhesive, then added another very thin sentiment strip from the Sentiment Strips: Well Wishes using some regular foam adhesive. Lots of dimension and heigh on this card front! I hadn’t realized that the sentiment covered up the only pink crocus on the left side of the card until it was too late, so I added a few pink Morganite Muse gems to help balance the color a bit better. I love the springy flowers with the bold green foil and softly emphasized sentiment! Such a cheery card.
My second project features a new-to-me technique: no-line coloring a stenciled image! You can watch the video above or you can click here to watch on YouTube.
In case you can’t watch the video, this card features the beautiful new Clover Wreath stencil, but I used some Post-It notes and washi tape to modify the layout a bit! I used a blender brush to blend some Contour Ink on my slimline card front, then used Copic markers to color right over the top of the blended areas. The neutral pale gray ink fades beautifully beneath the vibrant Copic coloring!
I chose to use another sentiment die set for this card, die cutting the detail layer of the Here For You die twice from white cardstock and adhering them together, then adding them to the vellum base layer with some more liquid adhesive.
I popped up the greeting using clear foam tape to help hide the adhesive. The final step was to add a few Something New iridescent white pearls from Trinity Stamps to the card front for a bit of shine.
Well, that’s all for my projects today! I have so enjoyed working with these fabulous new products from the Simon Says Stamp Good Luck Charm release. Thanks so much for stopping by today, and have a marvelous day!
