Hello and thank you for visiting us today. It's Marika here and I'm featuring Beautiful Lady set today. At first, I'd like to say that I was so thrilled when I learned that I have a focus post on this particular set – this is perfect for colouring! On my set of three cards, I tried to achieve different feel in each card by altering colouring mediums and style. On my first card I wanted to achieve a look that you could find in those old floral books. I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and Distress inks for colouring.
For my second card, I wanted to go for very clean and simple, sharp and detailed look – one might say: a modern look. I used no-line colouring with copic markers and coloured pencils to colour my image.
Stamps used: Beautiful Lady.
On my third card, I wanted to gain a fresh and chic – a party like look. Although it ended up being a thank you- card, I'm quite happy with the result. To colour this card, I stamped the image with Distress Markers and then blended the ink from the image with my water brush. For the stem and leaves, I used Zig Clean Color Marker to stamp them and coloured it with same technique. Since that ink had already dried, it was quite hard to get it blend again so I had to add more colour from the marker. While doing so, the stem and the leaves got more details than the flower part, so after I ended up adding more details to the flowers too. I used a stencil and watercolored though it to make my background. And of course, splatters finishes up every card.
Hopefully you liked my projects and got some ideas how to used this Beautiful Lady set. I had tons of fun colouring these – as always. Thank you for stopping by today and if you please, let me know what is your favourite! :)
