I was absolutely in love with a couple cards I saw shared recently by fellow Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, Jay Soriano. So I of course had to share what I learned with all of you! It’s an amazing yet simple technique for creating color-popping images. The trick is to stamp images containing shading/depth onto white cardstock with black ink and then color them in using bright markers that range from light to dark. Adding color just outside the images and mounting onto dark cardstock enhances the color-popping even more.
The images in the Timeless Tulips stamp set are perfect for this. These images were intended to be stamped with colored ink, but when stamped in black and colored in…WOW! Click here to see the cards demonstrated by Jay at Mitosucrafts.com.
I shared my version of Jay’s card using the outgoing 2018-20 In Colors in my latest Online Paper Crafting Class on Facebook this past Wednesday. Then I also uploaded a slightly smoother recording of this class onto my YouTube channel (since I know not everyone is ON Facebook) which I uploaded here in my blog post. Be sure to watch the video (you can just click on this image below if you are already on my blog), scroll through the close-up photos, check out the products list below, and then let me know if you have any questions.
I hope you enjoyed what I shared in this video. Below are measurements, more close-up photos, and a product list for the cards I demonstrated/shared. Remember that the 2018-20 In Colors (Pineapple Punch, Grapefruit Grove, Lovely Lipstick, Call Me Clover and Blueberry Bushel) will be leaving us soon, so don’t delay shopping if you need ink refills or cardstock.
