Hello crafty friends!
I have a really fun card to share with you today for SparkleNSprinkle! I think that this was my fave of all the stamp sets this month AND I was able to play with some NEW markers to boot!
Here is my SNS Supply List:
- Redm White & Black Cardstock
- Polka Dot Embossing Folder
Alrighty - let's get stamping!!!
First up, I stamped my "window" frame image of the Tulip Square stamp set using my Stamp Platform. I stamped onto white cardstock using Versafine Ink. Then, I grabbed my BRAND NEW Nuvo Marker Pens and went to work coloring! As you can see, you can blend them quite well! I'm sorry I forgot to write down every single color I used -I'm so new to markers that I'm not used to that yet! haha :) BUT - I know I used the Irish Clover Set - and they are such a great value (you get 3 pens to a set!) that you should just pick them all up! haha :)
Next, I stamped the ladybugs just free hand using the Versafine and again, colored them with the Nuvo Markers. Then I fussy cut them out :) I had this really cute Mandala Ladybird Set from Tonic sitting in my stash that I hadn't used yet, so I thought that would be a great addition to this card. I cut it out using red and black cardstock. I just wanted a little something special on him, so I added some Magic Speckle Embossing Powder.
Then, it was simple - layers and final sentiments! I stamped the "Ladybug Hugs" sentiment onto a scrap of white cardstock and embossed with Red Apple Embossing Powder. That I punched out using a 1" punch. A small black brad was added to make the sentiment pop like a tag. Ruby Slippers Glitter Drops decorated and embellished. All the layers were adhered using 1/2" and 1/4" Tear-ific Tape. I also added 2 layers of the 1/2" and 1/4" Tear-ific Tape across my card background panel and added the Fire Engine Red Glitter. To my little fussy cut ladybugs, I used the Smooth Precision Glue Pen to add Black Suede Glitter to their backs and polka dots. :) If you notice closely, I used a polka dot embossing folder on textured cardstock to create my background panel. A little slip of ribbon completed the card!
I'm still new to the world of alcohol marker coloring - so I hope you think I did a great job! :) I love how the little ladybugs are walking up the window!
