Coloring on Patterned Paper + Simon’s June 2018 Card Kit

Hello crafters! Have you seen the latest monthly card kit from Simon Says Stamp, Fly Me Away? It is a beauty! I had a lot of fun making the card you see here, using many of the kit contents, including: florals and sentiments from the Beautiful Flowers stamp set, some of the ModaScrap paper, and the Gold Pearl mirror card from Tonic Studios!

To create my card, I used an under-lay technique, similar to that which I use with watercolor. However, this card uses absolutely no watercolor, but instead was created by using Copics over one of the subtle ModaScrap papers!

There are many sentiments included in the Beautiful Flowers stamp set. I pieced quite a few of them together to create a unique, birthday greeting, which was embossed in Antique Gold powder from Simon. The pretty die cut that the sentiment is stamped on was from Studio Katia’s Dotted Patterns Scallop set.

    What a great idea! I have embellished pre-printed things to use on cards, but it never occurred to me to “re-color” an element. Now I will be looking at patterned papers differently when I see them—can I add more color to these images? Thank you for a great idea.
