As a follow-up to post for A Year of Card Techniques-Stamp Set Showdown (if you missed it, you can see it here), I wanted to share some details about each of the cards I made.
Here’s the first card I made:
Coloring books are back in a big way. You can find them everywhere these days. It was only a matter of time until the concept made its way to washi tape. And I’m so glad it did because I got some great Coloring Book Washi Tape from Eyelet Outlet and had fun working with it.
I stamped my image from the Beautiful You set by Stampin’ Up on a Whisper White rectangle. Then I applied a piece of the washi tape to a piece of Whisper White scrap and stamped the image again with Staz-On ink (regular ink won’t dry). When I was sure it was dry, I cut the dress and hat. Applying it to the card stock keeps it stable while cutting; and, since it doesn’t add much bulk, I just left it on the card stock and attached that to the image with Ranger Multi Medium.
A quick run down of what I did with the balance of the card before I get back to the image. The card base is Pink Pirouette, topped with a mat of Basic Black and Whisper White. I attached a strip of washi down the right side of the of the Whisper White and then cut a thin strip of the Black Glitter Washi and attached that, too.
While I had the Black Glitter Washi out, I attached a small piece to scrap card stock and punched two 1/2″ circles to place under the flowers to help them stand out. Here’s the card from another angle:
I attached the focal image to a rectangle of Pink Pirouette and cut another of Basic Black. A greeting from the same set was stamped on another piece of Pink Pirouette, which I cut into a thin strip and attached at the top. I then attached the 1/2″ circles and, on top, Flatback Resin Flowers.
Now back to the Washi. I colored it with a combination of Copic markers and Stampin’ Up Colored Pencils. It takes color nicely and doesn’t smear.
For the inside, I used another stamp from the set and decided to use the Washi across the bottom.
In two weeks, I’ll share another post about no-line water coloring; the technique I did in my third card. My second card, this one:
was done using the same technique I shared in this post; so I’ll just direct you there.
My last card was no-line water coloring. I’ll be sharing another card with this technique next month, so stay tuned for more on that.
