Hello and Happy Monday everyone! Thanks so much for stopping by today, as I am sharing a card on adding shading to your stamped images using Copic markers.
Today’s card is part of the Reverse Confetti Sneak Peeks week; I also have two other posts for today. If you are looking for one of my other posts, see these links: Neat & Tangled Reveal Day #1 post or the Whimsy Stamps Reveal Day #1 post.
So for today’s Reverse Confetti sneak peek, I am showcasing the lovely Rose Garden stamps and dies. The stamps in this set are really great for creating a custom grouping of roses, in both solid and outline styles (I’ll have more inspiration for you tomorrow on using the outline image with watercoloring!). Today though, I used the solid images and coordinating dies.
I started off by stamping the solid images onto cardstock with Altenew dye inks (Cotton Candy and Frayed Leaf). I used Altenew inks because they are Copic friendly and there are a lot of great colors. Once I had the images stamped, I brought in my Copics to add shading. I love adding additional shading to my stamped images because it really helps them have a more life-like and dimensional feel.
The colors I used for the roses and leaves are listed out below, and are linked down in the products section at the bottom of this post:
- Roses: RV13, RV29
- Leaves: YG63, YG67, YG97
After my coloring was complete, I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out. I also used the cute Double Panel Hearts die set to create some vellum accent pieces that are layered behind the panel my flowers are sitting on. The vellum gives a subtle texture to the card design and ties into the feminine feel of the pink roses.
As for that panel I mentioned; I stamped my sentiment (from that same Rose Garden stamp set) in Black Onyx Versafine ink and heat embossed it with clear embossing powder. I them watercolored the panel with Heidi Swapp color shine sprays for a soft, shimmery effect. I used the same sprays to create splatters on my card base.
Finally, I used Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear sequins to add a bit more interest to the design… and also because I cannot resist anything that sparkles! :)
