WWC211 – Kath\’s Feminine "Anything Goes" Challenge

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.  

  1. Today\’s card is embossed and water colored with Tombow markers
  2. I did a Blog Post in January showing the same layout colored with Copic markers.
  3. Inktense colored pencils
  4. Kuretake Watercolors.
In the end, the Tombow markers and Copics were my favorite two.

If you look at both, leave me a comment and let me know whether you like the Copic or 
Tombow version best.

Bright Colorful Pattern Stamping

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 stamping the sentiment (Ranger Letter It Birthday) with Gina K Amalgam on XPress It paper.  I then worked out from the sentiment and stamped the larger images first. Next I went in and filled in with the smaller details.  I colored with Copic markers and added three black sequins.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
