Hi there, everyone! Erum here with a new project and video for the Creative Coloring with Erum video series. Today, I will use the Build-A-Garden: Rocktrumpet Stamp Set and color the image using various Altenew inks.

  1. On a panel on Classic Crest Solar White Cardstock (80lb), stamp the image from Build-A-Garden: Rocktrumpet Stamp Set in Vanilla Cream Crisp Dye Ink.
  2. Use the coordinating coloring stencils to apply colors. Through stencil 1, I applied Pinkalicious Crisp Dye Ink and layered Pastel Sunrise Crisp Dye Ink to the right side; this will add a warm tone to the petals. For the second layer, apply Rubellite Crisp Dye Ink. Go over the right side petals with any coral shade ink, I used Canyon Clay Crisp Dye Ink.
  3. To the second flower, I applied Volcano Lake Crisp Dye Ink, and for the second layer, I used Lagoon Crisp Dye Ink which, in the end, I covered over with the leftover pink ink on my blending brush so that it doesn't merge with the leaves.Altenew BAG Rocktrumpet 2wm
  4. For the purple flower, apply Lavender Fields Crisp Dye Ink and add a hint of pink ink to the left side. For the second layer of the stencil, apply Deep Iris and a bit more pink to the left side. You can also add a hint of Lagoon to the right petal for an interesting effect.
  5. To the flower at the very top, apply Chamomile Crisp Dye Ink. And for the second layer, use Snapdragon Crisp Dye Ink.
  6. For the leaves, add a base layer of Dark Night Crisp Dye Ink and then add Emerald Crisp Dye Ink over it. If you wish, you can keep the leaf tips lighter.
  7. For the second layer of the leaf stencil, apply the same inks but with a heavy hand.
  8. Use the coordinating die to die cut the image.Altenew BAG Rocktrumpet 3wm
  9. Use the Dual Tips Pens that match the ink colors and add stamens and details to the image.
  10. Next, add Jet Black Ink Spray splatters onto two card fronts.
  11. Apply liquid adhesive to the die-cut and place it on the two panels. Let it dry.
  12. Cut the panels and overhanging die-cut.
  13. Stamp sentiments for both the cards in Obsidian Pigment Ink and die cut using the coordinating die.
  14. Adhere to the card front with Instant Dimension Foam Tape.
