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.

20191210 114223I 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.

20191210 114232vFor 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.

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.
