I always love our \”Feminine\” Challenge prompts! Please be sure to pop over to The Watercooler Website to see what the other Artists have created this week.
I have a fondness for pattern stamping, and when I received a new stamp set for Christmas, I thought this brightly colored layout would work well. I used my new Inkblot Shop This & That stamp set along with images from SSS Hello Friends and Photoplay Thinking of You.
I started by embossing the sentiment (Ranger Letter It Birthday) on Bristol paper. I then worked out from the sentiment and embossed the larger images first. Next I went in and filled in with the smaller details. I colored/watercolored with Tombow Dual Tip markers and I like how bold the black embossing combined with the bright watercolor markers turned out. I finished by adding a few black sequins to this otherwise one layer card.
I really liked this layout and wanted to try it using different coloring techniques to see which I liked best.
- Today\’s card is embossed and water colored with Tombow markers
- I did a Blog Post in January showing the same layout colored with Copic markers.
- Inktense colored pencils
- Kuretake Watercolors.
Tombow version best.
