I have another special blog post for you today.
Ildi is popping in to share her brilliant projects using Belated Birthday. You can check her blog out here.
Thank you Ildi for being my guest, I am blown away by your gorgeous cards.
For my first card I used a black cardstock: I stamped the images with Tattered Rose Oxide ink and coloured everything with Polychromos pencils.
Quick tip: There's no need any masking papers if you choose no-line coloring since the light shaded ink will totally be covered by your colouring medium.
My second card wasn't a quick make, but it was absolutely worth the effort. I made a tone-on-tone backround using all the tiny bits from the stamp set. Coloured up this cute turtle, added a party hat and attached it in the middle. I white heat embossed the sentiment onto a piece of kraft cardstock and added some natural colour fringe to embelish my front panel.
Quick tip: If you find your backround too bold or dark for your focal element, you can cover it with a piece of vellum to mute the colours.
The third card I've created for this blog is a classic style marker card. I've just had this idea with snails on tree branches in my head since I first saw this gorgeous set. Creating a scene like this may take some time but always a fun create. I started with sketching the branches with my lightest grey then stamped the images.
Quick tip: marker cards sometimes look weird or messy while in progress. Please do not give it up if you find it doesn't turn out as you planned. At the end it will look great I promise :)
My final project is a monochromatic tag set and I can't hide how I enjoyed creating them. Making the tag bases I applied oxide inks onto die-cut pieces. I splattered black and white paint to make them look a little textured and interesting. I created little compositions from the stamp images with masking technique. I used the tag colours for my critters to create a monochromatic look.
Quick tip: when lack of mojo monochromatic colouring can be a releasing and uplifting experience. No thinking of colour picks can help to aim a flow create :).
Thank you for reading my post, hope you enjoyed it and found it useful. Thank you, Jane for the opportunity to share my creations on your blog, I feel so honoured!
Wishing you fun creating!
