Hello everyone! I am very excited to be sharing a card with you today as a guest designer for Honey Bee Stamps! I chose to use the adorable Not Too Shabby stamp and die set in today’s card, as I love the whimsical images in this set.
In the video below, I will be sharing how I created this card from start to finish, including how I used both Copics and Zig Clean Color markers in this card to achieve the look I was going for.
Using multiple mediums on a card is really fun, as it allows me to achieve the exact look I am going for, since every medium creates a different effect. Since I wanted a layered, textured look in the sky, I used the Zig markers, mainly because they react with water so well. For the stamped images, using Copics was my first choice because of the smooth shading and control I have over where the color ends up.
The tag background was created with Zig Clean Color markers. I layered multiple colors together – many times – to create the multi-colored sky. The colors I used for the sky were:
- Light Blue 036
- Peacock Blue 038
- English Lavender 803
- Violet 080
- Emerald Green 048
- Marine Green 400
- Light Pink 026
- Ochre 063
The images such as the banners, the birds and the mason jar, were all colored with Copic markers. The colors used for the images were:
- Birds: R14, R27, R59
- Jar: BG0000, B41
- Jar lid: T2, T4, T5
- Hearts: RV13, RV14
- Banner: Y11, Y38, B00, BG02, G00, YG41, RV10, RV11
I hope you will check out the video and see how this card came together! A big hug of thanks to Melissa and Lisa for inviting me to guest design for Honey Bee Stamps this month… I had a blast!!!
