Welcome back to Magenta Super Saturday. You can also see my card from today’s post on the Magenta blog here.
To create this card, I stamped the 3 Poinsettias – 3 Flowers stamp on a piece of Neenah Solar White 110lb cardstock with Gina Kay Amalgam ink.
I used Kelly’s technique to color the image with my Zig brush pens. I applied a Sugar Almond Pink from the middle of the petal to the outer end.
Next I used a darker color on very end of the petal. I used a different dark pink on each of the flowers – Peach Pink, Pink or Dark Pink. I applied a very small amount of water with a fine point brush in the center and pulled it toward the color – instant blending!I had some help with this card. My sweet boy Angus likes to keep me company.
I used the same process for the other flowers. Where petals overlapped, I waited for the intersecting piece to dry before painting the other petal to avoid any color bleeding. I used May Green on the tendrils and the dots around the flowers and Red on the very center of the flower.
After the flowers were dry, I made a mask from the stamp and placed it over the colored image. Next, I splattered gold paint over the open areas. I stamped the sentiment in the lower right corner with VersaFine Black Onyx ink, then embossed with clear embossing powder. I cut the image down, adhered it to a piece of light green cardstock, then adhered it to a white A2 card.
I hope you give this technique for the Zig markers a try. Thanks for visiting my blog today!
