Coloring has been one of my favorite techniques to use when creating projects lately. So for today’s project, I went with a set of Artist Markers that are alcohol based to color in a gorgeous flower bouquet from the Forever and Always stamp set.
This stamp set has all the details to create a very simple yet elegant projects for various occasions. And the sentiments included in it are perfect for sharing your love with others!
Artist markers are so great for adding various shadings and for creating a soft blended look. I share an easy tip to get a smooth transition between colors when laying down colors on your project in the video tutorial above, so make sure to watch it and try it for yourself!
Since the bouquet was going to be a focal point of the card, I added a quick background by creating a splatter effect on the card panel using the Sea Glass Ink Spray. All you need to do is take out the nozzle peice and tap over your card panel. And you get this gorgeous, metallic splatters!
I certainly hope you enjoyed today’s projects and the video tutorial! Please see below for the full supplies list along with giveaway details.
