Hey Crafty Friends, Happy Friday. Day 70 something of quarantine (I quit counting), LOL but hope you are all staying happy and healthy. I inked up a new stamp/die set to share with you today, it’s Pinkfresh Studios Blue and Pink Fuchsia. The stamp set is called Just Because and I fell in love with it for the beautiful detailed lines, it’s so artful. (I also love Fuchsias) lol.
I decided to get a little Pop Art culture with my coloring for today’s card, adding just a bit of Pink Copic markers to the flowers, some blues and greens to the open leaves and leaving those beautiful line drawn leaves in black and white because they are just so striking.
I’m also playing along with the Pinkfresh Studio Challenge for this month.
TIP: When coloring the flowers, I used the flicking technique, starting from the bottom of the petal and flicking up. After the three pinks, add just a couple of flicks of B00, a very light blue. When flicking over the pink, it turns a lilac color, and over a white section, it adds a pretty blue highlight.
Copic Markers used on the Pinkfresh Studio blue and Pink Fuchsia card:
Flowers: RV10, RV21, Rv55, and a bit of B00,
Leaves: I started them green with YG03 and YG23 but they were too bright, so I went over them with turquoise, BG11, BG13, BG49, on the envelope I just used the turquoise, you can see the difference in the colors.
Next, die cut the image using the coordinating die and before attaching it to the card, sponge a bit of Distress Oxide in Tumbled Glass behind where the flowers are going. Then add a bit of black paint splatter.
To anchor the card, white heat emboss the sentiment on a scrap of black and attach it and the floral spray with foam tape some added height and interest. A few black sequins tin the background even out the spacing.
Finally, while the stamp is still in the Misti, pop in a white envelope and stamp it too. Slid a piece of card stock inside the envelope so the ink won’t bleed through to the back. Sponge the edges with the Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide Ink and add some black splatter. I just love matching envelopes don’t you?
