Spellbinders – Stephanie Low – Just Add Color – Large Peonies

Caly Person

Hello again!

Stephanie Low recently launched her Just Add Color collection for Spellbinders and I’m happy to help pass the info along with a card that I made for today. I thought it was perfect for The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge!

I started by stamping and masking the flowers to arrange this floral spray. It makes for a simple one-layer card so it’s often all about the coloring. I honestly thought this was going to be a quick card when I started, but I ended up spending a long time coloring to give the pink flowers the intensity that it has.

Copics: RV00, RV11, RR85, RV56 (Pinks)
V000, V01, V15 (Purples)
G21, G82, YG07, G05 (Greens)
Y13 (Yellow)

After coloring, I splattered the entire panel with some watered-down white acrylic paint to give it some interest. For the sentiment, I used the February Glimmer Hot Foil Kit of…

Altenew February 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop + Giveaway

Caly Person

Hello and welcome to Altenew’s February 2019 Stamp/Die/Stencil Release Blog Hop! We’ve got so much to share with you today and I’ve created with several new sets using different color mediums and techniques. I’ve got lots to share, so I’ll jump right in.

My first card uses the new Dotted Blooms stamp set. I decided to emboss the images in gold because I couldn’t decide what color I wanted the branches and stems. Then I used the Dotted Blooms Mask Stencil to apply Rubellite ink to the flowers using an ink-blending brush. The background is created by ink-blending Altenew inks in Desert Night, Dusk, Ocean Waves, and Sea Glass. I splattered the ink-blended panel white and black ink before adhering the images to the panel using foam adhesive. The sentiment is stamped on black cardstock and embossed with white embossing powder.

For my second card, I used Baroque Motifs and…
