CARDS DETAILS

One layer cards are not something that I do often because I always want to add something, but floral image that I am using today is just so perfect, there really is no need to add anything else to it. I started to work on my card by stamping the floral cluster in Simon’s Intense Black ink onto white cardstock with the help of my Stamp Platform.

I like the look of bright vibrant flowers on dark backgrounds and I often color with colored pencils on dark papers (see some examples here, here and here). I wanted to have this floral cluster on a dark background as well and decided to use Copic markers and color not only the floral cluster, but also the background the create the illusion that these flowers sit on dark background.

I used B99 to color the background on my original card and I just love that deep blue. For my 2nd card I wanted to change things up and I used a BG18 color. You can go with any color you like, maybe you’d like to have a deep green or brown background or even black – you can add it to your image with the help of a marker. You just need to make sure to follow the lines of the stamped images and stay outside the lines.

If you look closely at the photos of my cards you’ll notice that my backgrounds aren’t evenly solid, the color isn’t even in all places. I didn’t spend a lot of time adding layer upon layer of the Copic coloring, so in some areas my background color is darker and in some lighter. If you don’t like this look just make sure to go over your background a few times.

You can also color just the background and keep your flowers white if you want. I think this is also a fabulous look.

Once my background was completely colored in I started coloring the cluster. I am far from being a Copic marker expert, I like to color just for the fun of it. What’s awesome about this stamp set though is that all the work has been done for you. You have areas that indicate where the shading has to be, you have the open areas that indicate where your lightest colors need to go. So it’s quite simple actually.

I used 3 colors to color leaves – YG03, YG17 and YG67. To color flowers I went with yellows and pinks. I used Y15, Y17 and YR14 to color the yellow blooms and RV10, RV13 and RV17 for the pink flower.

This entire coloring process – coloring the background and coloring of the floral cluster too me about 30 minutes. I think that’s awesome considering the end result. I can easily make a bunch of cards like this without having to spend too much time and effort.

To add a sentiment onto my colored background I white heat embossed it slightly overlapping the florals. I did give my background a few minutes to dry, but this coloring coloring does dry fairly quickly especially considering that I didn’t add too many layers of ink.

I stamped You Are Loved So Much, added white embossing powder and heat set it with my heat tool. Next I adhered my background on an A2 white side folding card base and my card was done!

Have fun stamping!

    1. WOW! I picked up this stamp set and am having so much fun coloring the images with pencils and gellatos and watercolors. It’s a pretty easy image to do no line coloring with. It’s a gorgeous set and I just love the sentiments. Best stamp set I’ve ever invested in!!! I saw this card you made on your board in the video you did of your craft corner and wondered it you were going to share how you made it. It’s just beautiful. I haven’t tried alcohol markers yet (mostly because of the cost of them), but am considering picking up some Nuvo Creative pens (alcohol markers) just to have a new medium to color these gorgeous and fun flowers. Thanks for sharing additional ideas you’ve tried using this stamp set. As always … Thank you, Yana!!!

    1. Beautiful flowers!! So lovely. Your coloring is stunning!

    1. Yana you are so right, this floral image is immense and so right for so many different types of techniques. SSS amazing!!! I love both the cards can’t pick between them. :O)

    1. I totally need to try these ideas, absolutely gorgeous cards.

    1. I love it Yana, what a great idea about using your Copic for the background. I have just invested in two large background floral stamps so I will definitely be having a go at this technique. Thank you for sharing it with us crafters. :O)
