Svitlana here. Today I want to share a floral card featuring Artist Markers coloring as well as an easy way to create a non-white background.
I started making my card by stamping a beautiful wreath from the Everlasting Happiness Stamp Set onto a Classic Crest Solar White panel using the Permanent Black Ink. Next, I stamped the same image onto a masking paper and cut out the mask for the big floral cluster of the design.
Next, I applied the mask and blended the Frosty Pink Crisp Dye Ink onto the panel. I didn’t mask any small elements of the design and inked over them as well. It was okay since the small flowers I then colored over with pink and red markers and the leaves I made black. Even though masking this design seems intimidating I only needed to mask the three big flowers.
Then, I removed the mask and colored the stamped design using the Artist Markers.
After that, I foam mounted the panel onto a white card base, followed by popping the sentiment, which was white-embossed on black cardstock and die-cut. I used a stamp and its coordinating die from the Halftone Hearts Stamp Set and Halftone Hearts Die Set.
Lastly, I added several black crystals.
