Hello there everyone! I hope you all are well. Erum here and I am back with a very pretty floral card featuring the Sweetest Peas Stamp Set. Today I will show you how to color your images with Artist Markers and heat emboss them as well without ruining the tips of your markers! I will focus on sticking to close and light shades today to create a pretty looking card that is easy to color.
Most of you must already be familiar with this technique as it has been around for a while. The result is always gorgeous because the Artist Markers gives you such an intense and gorgeous coloring effect. And the shine of the heat embossing adds a boutique touch to the card. For my card, I begin by ink blending Peach Perfect Crisp Dye Ink onto Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock with a blending brush. You will notice that I have kept the ink more concentrated on the left and the bottom edge. The reason is, I will be stamping my Sweetest Peas in this area.
I set up my cardstock and placed my stamps on my stamping platform. We need a stamping platform, this is the most essential part of the technique. Because, first, we will stamp in alcohol-friendly ink. For today's card, instead of stamping in alcohol-friendly ink, I will stamp in an ink which is close to the color of the Artist Marker I am using. I first stamped the images in Peach Perfect Crisp Dye Ink but it was too close and I couldn't see clearly while coloring so I stamped the images again and this time I used Sunkissed Crisp Dye Ink.
To color the flowers, I used Cotton Candy and Peach Perfect Artist Markers. For the leaves, I used Forest Glades and Frayed Leaf Artist Markers.
Next, we will need the stamps to be in the same position to restamp in Embossing Ink hence the need for a stamping platform. But first, make sure to use anti-static powder over the entire panel. Then pour over Golden Peach Embossing Powder and heat set it.
Add a few fine black paint splatters. Heat emboss the sentiment on black cardstock in Golden Peach Embossing Powder. Adhere the sentiment tab on the panel with foam tape. Mount the panel onto the card base. To finish, add a few satin gold sequins.
You can watch the process video below or on YouTube in HD.
The reason I chose to go with close shades of Artist Markers is to make the coloring process quicker and easier. Also, these light, pretty colors are perfect for Mother's Day as well. I hope you were inspired to try this easy Artist Marker coloring technique. Thank you for stopping by!
This is so gorgeous!
Erum, your card is lovely. I enjoy watching how you beautifully blend your colors. Your flowers look for real. Thank you for sharing your inspiring talent.
Beautifully done, and thank you for the wonderful video:-)
I love this card, the flowers look so whimsical and appear to the floating in the breeze. I also loved watching your video! And I really like how you added that you were scared to add the splatter to your card. I feel like that so many times while making cards. Where you have worked hard on creating, but it needs something else, but then scared you will mess up what you have created. I am so glad its not just me that feels that way!
Once again, this card is sooo pretty! Thanks for sharing your talent Erum, and showing how you coloured the flowers. Colouring is an area I struggle with, to get the shading right.
Hello Erum, Thank you for sharing your beautiful card! The video is so helpful, especially seeing the tiny brush you used to add the splatters. I’ll give it a try!
Now I think I need that Sweetest Peas stamp! Girl, you are costing me $$$$.
Beautifully done Erum….this is one of my favorite Altenew stamp sets. TFS!!!!
Gorgeous card Erum and what a beautiful colour embossing powder!
Thank you so much for sharing and have a wonderful day.
That is truly such a beautiful card! The colors are luscious! Thank you for showing us how it was done.
Great video showing the background and stamping process. I like the alcohol blending and color choices. The embossing to finish looks great.
Just beautiful! Love the colors!
I love the colors you chose and the embossing makes it extra pretty! I’m always afraid to add the splatters too – but it adds such a nice detail to the card! Thank you for sharing the tutorial video — I always find that so helpful.
Such a lovely card! and the peach color is just amazing!!
This is so beautiful. Thank you for the video.
