I saw this very cool technique over at The Daily Marker and had the bright idea that I could replicate it. It took me hours because dang, it is a lot of coloring!
I will now attempt to justify why it took me so long. The fact that is was 60 degrees and raining out made it seem like a good way to spend an afternoon!
- The card is actually two layers. The bottom layer is the large flower image from Regarding Dahlias stamped in Whisper White Craft ink on Vellum.
- The top layer is the same flower stamped in Versamark and embossed in white on Smoky Slate.
- I fussy cut the Smoky Slate layer so it covered about half of the card front.
- I then colored (and this is what took the longest) the flowers using Raspberry Ripple and a Blender Pen. I used the coloring technique where I scribble marker on an acrylic block and pick up color from the block.
I really really really like the look and am going to try it again with more colors and the white pen like Kathy, she is one talented lady!
Just a little peek inside! Seemed like it took a long time, but I am someone who doesn't like to spend more than a half hour on a card so spending two hours felt like forever!
Have a good one!
