Card making, rubber stamping techniques and project videos for papercrafters

Hi Everybody! 

Welcome to this weeks Friday Funday!

This week I will be sharing a card project using Gina K Designs

stamps at Sending Love, and  doing the No Line Water Coloring Technique.

Here is the list of the items I used for this project.

Gina K. Designs:

Stamp Sets- Sending Love and Sentimental Bouquet

Pure Luxury Card Stock - Heavy Base Weight & Layering Weigh White, Black Onyx

Pure Luxury Pattern Paper - Cold Snap

Premium Dye Ink- Moonlit Fog

Fine Detail Embossing Powder - White  &  Clear

Twisted Twine - Black Onyx 

Other items:  Versa Fine - Black,

Zig clean color markers - # 41 - Lt. Green,  #61 Lt. Brown,  #50 - Yellow, #52-Bright Yellow, #93- Green Gray, #66- Dk. Oatmeal 

Nuvo Crystal Drops - Black, EK Embossing Anti - Static Tool, 

Bristol smooth surface paper 

I cut the Bristol paper to 4 x 5 1/4" 

I inked up the daffodil stamp in the Moonlit Fog ink, and stamped it on scratch paper. Then stamped it on my panel. 

 I then started with the light green and started with one leaf and just added a little color and use the water brush to blend out the color down the leaf. Be sure and add the full strength color from the marker in the areas that you want the darkest as in under a leaf or where another leaf or flower is casting a shadow on to that object or the object that is behind something else. 

Just take one leaf at a time, also you may want to color one leaf at the bottom of the page, and then move up in color one near the top and then move over to the left and color one that way you give each leaf an opportunity to dry before you color next to it so the colors were they touch don't run together.

Then when you get to the flowers. 

I used # 61, # 50, and # 52 Zig markers 

When you were coloring the Flowers do one petal at a time and if I petal is in front of another one be sure and add a darker shadow of Color where the top one cast a shadow on the one behind it. Also when you're brushing on the darker color be sure and go with the way the Lines that already have been drawn in by the illustrator go. 

I have gone back and added some more of the Lt. Brown to deepen the darker areas. Also adding in some more details. 

Here is a close up! :) 

When finished I cut the image layer down to 3 X  4  7/8" then added a Black Onyx Layer cut just a little larger. I punched 3 holes and added the Twine.  Embossed a price of Layering White with a embossing folder. Attached it to the card base. Cut 3 corners off the PP and added them to the Image panel and taped it to the base.  Heat Embossed the greeting from Sentimental Bouquet in White on Black Onyx and then added a White Layer behind it. Then cut a piece of the Black Gingham Pattern paper and mounted them together. Popped it up with Foam Squares. Stamped the Butterfly in Versa Fine and Embossed with Clear powder. Colored with Zig markers. Attached it with a glue dot then added some liquid glue under the bow for lasting hold!  :)  Added the Nuvo Drops!

This is sooooo beautiful!

OMG!  This looks just like a beautiful water coloring.  You are so talented. 

Karen, the link to the video takes me to a PDF file. What is your YouTube channel?

I love this stamp and use it often, but have never felt it was very versatile.  Thanks for proving me wrong!  This is just gorgeous, Karen!!!! Can't wait to try this.  You are so creative.  Who else would have thought of that little, but impactful, touch of punching the holes and adding the twine?  You rock!!!!!  PS: Don't you just love that butterfly?  I emboss an entire page of velum with black, gold and silver butterflies, then color them on the back with alcohol markers to match the card I am making as I go.  Just love it!

I watched your video while eating breakfast.  You notice details, like Melanie.  Nice video.  Now, I need to pull that stamp out and color.

Karen this is so beautiful! Thanks so much for doing a tutorial and a video! I can't wait to play around....hopefully this weekend! I'm off to watch the video now!

OMG That is jaw dropping gorgeous Karen. I saw the partially finished card on FB and thought WOW! But the finished card is awesome. The butterfly looks so real. The black and white gingham is a special added touch.

WOW! Just WOW!

Just Gorgeous!! The coloring is beautiful and I love the black elements which contrasts and anchors the beautifully colored daffodils. I don't have the Zig Markers (yet) and probably won't have them for a while. I do have the Spectrum Aqua Markers though. If you have those could you list the markers I could use as substitutes? I haven't tried this technique yet so I will be giving it a try. Thanks for another wonderful tutorial.

Gorgeous, great tutorial!

Fixed!  Thanks for letting me know!  :)  <3

Thank You all so much for you kind and encouraging words! <3   I have to share this with you all, because it is a funny... Well not at the time... I was adding the Nuvo drops, and Where the Butterfly is there was a big Nuvo Drop... and I was working on the inside and just set my black layer over to the side for a minute, and when I picked it up, I had sat it on top of my card... Nuvo...not dry!  So I was left with a big streak of black.... I thought it was ruined... :(  But Thank Goodness we have butterflies!  LOL  That is why I have a beautiful butterfly popped up there! LOL   I hope you all will find a little time to watch the video! It is easier to get the feel of the No Line Watercoloring!  :)  Have a great day and Happy Stamping!  :)  <3
