VIDEO: How to Color with Alcohol Markers Ft. Bold Floral Drape | Lydia’s Crafty Corner

by Lydia Evans

Hello there everyone! Lydia here. Today I’ll be sharing how you can get a different look with the NEW Bold Floral Drape Stamp Set. I’ll do this by coloring the negative space with Artist Markers.

I started by stamping the large background image using Permanent Black Ink. I used this ink as it is alcohol-marker friendly.  I then went ahead and colored the negative spaces using Artist Markers to create the flowers and leaves. For the flowers, I used Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, and Desert Night Markers and for the leaves, I used Frayed Leaf, Forest Glades, and Evergreen Markers.

For the sentiment, I cut Framed Thanks Die three times, once from Gold Mirror Cardstock and twice from Jet Black Cardstock. I adhered these together using Glue Tape and then added them into place.

For a video to see how this was done, please watch the video below. Or over on YouTube:

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Thanks for sharing this card and video, Lydia. Your crafting and coloring creates such a great background for so many types of sentiments. I especially like the fine lines of your golden sentiment block. It lets that gorgeous background show through so well.
