There are three new stamp and die sets in this release built to coordinate with each other. For today’s card I used the fairy, bees and florals from Honey Jar. The pretty branch at the top is from Beehive.
Not surprisingly, my color choices are a warm color palette of yellows and peach. These warm tones remind me of a relaxing summer day playing in the garden.
Colorado Craft Company Honey Jar New Release Card #1
Start with a white card front. Use blending brushes to combine Fossilized Amber and Abandoned Coral Distress Oxide Inks.
Next, splatter with water, and white paint and set aside to dry.
Meanwhile, Use the Misti to stamp the images onto white Hammermill cardstock.
Finally, color with Copic Markers before cutting them out with the coordinating dies.
Copic Markers Used:
Pinks: R21, R22, R24, Yellows: Y11, Y13, Y15, Y19, Greens: YG03, YG17, YG67, Blues (in wings) B0000, BG01, Skin: E000, E02, YR00, E11 and R21 for the cheeks
Hair: E50, Y21, Yr24, Y19
Putting the card together:
First, use the honeycomb stamps to stamp the background with the Abandoned Coral Ink.
Next, use the Nuvo Aqua Shimmer pen on the fairy and bee wings. This adds interest and a little bling, really makes them shimmer.
Finally, use foam squares to attach all the elements to the card front. Attach the card front to the top folding A2 card base and trim any overhang.
