Hi everyone! This is Jen Timko with our Friday post. And can you feel it?? Like the calm before the storm, today is the quiet before Creativation. Oh what treats Picket Fence Studio has in store for you as part of this big industry event. But I’m sworn to secrecy….so we wait. In the mean time I have a card for you using a set you already know and are sure to love.
The flowers in Rose Bouquet simply call out for coloring. Pick your medium but you need to give these a go. The details are exquisite, the sentiments perfect for many kinds of cards. I chose to color this image using my Zig Clean Color Markers. I love these pens for the precision tips and nice blending. I find that they work best on a Bristol paper so that is what I stamped the image on using the Black Hybrid Ink which I love for watercoloring. It doesn’t budge!
I layered on pinks and reds for the roses and then moved to olive greens for the leaves. To make the image pop more, I used a gray marker around the edges and blended it out. Once I had most of the coloring done, I went back and added the deepest of each color to get more depth and shadowing. While this takes a bit of time, I love coloring and I enjoy watching the project develop as I add shading. Since I didn’t want to cover up any of the image, I chose vellum for my sentiment. It just so happened that I already had this stamped and embossed from a project where I changed my design. It is lovely with this image, I think. I added a few clear sequins for detail and found this great pink envelope to go with the card. All ready to hit the mail!
I hope you like this card today. Make sure you are on the lookout tomorrow too. The whole team will be sharing projects using products from the new release! You are going to be blown away (yes, I have seen what everyone is making and oh my word!!). Until tomorrow, thanks for stopping in today. Have a great weekend!
