Actually, the reason I made so many cards is because I wanted to show you different colouring techniques on one image. In addition to this, I will also be covering different embossing powders and showing you how they give the same image such variation. Therefore I kept my layout almost same for all my cards so there is little distraction and the image has all your attention.
Also, every image I coloured/stamped , it was die cut using the coordinating die. All sentiments used are from the same stamp set.
My cards today will show you the Build-A-Flower: Magnolia Stamp Set in eight different looks. However, since there are a lot of photos to go through, I will keep the description short.
First up, no-line pencil colouring.
I made a light colour wash panel for some of my cards. Here I used Prismacolors to colour my image. I stamped the image using Antique Linen distress ink.
Next, some no-line water colouring.
I have used distress stains to watercolour this image. Even though I didn’t need to add the details on this image to make it look different but I wanted to show you that you can add some specks or lines/strokes to change the look of the petals.
Next, I have used Artist markers to colour my image.
I have used Artist markers in Frosty Pink, Coral Berry and Ruby Red for my flowers. The stem/branch was coloured using Frayed Leaves, Forest Glades and Evergreen.
Next up, stamping layering stamps.
Here I stamped the layering stamps except for the outline stamp using Peach Perfect, Cotton Candy and Rouge Crisp Inks on Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock . I then went in with my colour pencils to add a few details. My front panel is cut from Spicy Yogurt cardstock.
From here on my cards feature different Alenew Crisp Embossing Powders.
Here instead of a colour wash background I inked the panel using Ocean Waves Crisp Ink. The flower is watercoloured using distress stains.
Next, with Golden Peach Crisp Embossing Powder.
For my front panel I have used Powder Woodgrain Cardstock. Here I have done some two tone watercolouring.
Next with Translucent Pearl Crisp Embossing Powder.
I have used Woodgrain sheet in white for my front panel.
Lastly, with Antique Gold Crisp Embossing Powder.
I have used Spicy Yogurt cardstock for my front panel. Watercoloured the image using distress stains.
Finally, we are done! I hope one of these techniques is your cup of tea. I’d love to see what you do with your Build-A-Flower: Magnolia Stamp Set. Don’t forget to tag Altenew or me when you share.
