It's time for another Guest Designer post for STAMPlorations with lots of coloring inspiration! Have a look at the main inspiration post in the STAMPlorations blog HERE so you can enjoy of the art of my fellow guest designers too! Don't forget to comment for a chance to win a $15 coupon to STAMPlorations store. This time all my cards have been colored with the same medium, my trusty old Copics. All cards have got their share of paint splatters too! :) Let's have a look!
Card 1 Radiant Roses
Radiant Roses stamp set
Pocket Blooms stamp set for the sentiment
I have stamped the Radiant Roses image three times in different angles to create a floral border. Then I've colored in the flowers with Copic markers (have a look at the detail photo for the color combos) and splattered white, black and gold paint on top. The sentiment is white heat embossed on black card. A very simple card but I do love to leave white space to my cards!
Card 2 Bloomtangled Cover Plate
Bloomtangled #1 Cover Plate Die
Big Greetings stamp set for the sentiment
I've cut the cover plate from white marker card and colored it in with Copics for an ombre look. Creating an ombre from light yellows to light greens is pretty easy, you don't need to blend much to make this work. Have a look at the Copic combos I used from the detail photo! To make the ombre a bit more blurred I ended up splattering white paint on top and I love the way it brought a lot of life to the coloring. The sentiment is white heat embossed on vellum. The cover plate is attached to a white card base -I use Stick It for cover plates like this one, it makes the gluing so much easier!
Card 3 Let It Snow
Let It Snow Phrase Die
Christmas Icons: Christmas Tree #1 Die
Sometimes it's fun to put the stamping tools away and create a card only with dies! From the detail photo you can see how the coloring process begun like. I've done very basic Copic blending with just 3 shades for both dies. The sentiment is also covered with clear Stickles and the tree got some paint splatters on top. :) In this card I also used a strips of patterned paper and gold glitter card I had handy on my desk!
So, here were the three cards for the first STAMPlorations GD post for September! Do you have a favorite? Thanks for popping by and don't forget to comment, I love reading your comments and from this post there's a chance to win too!
