Hello! It’s Kari and today I’m sharing a couple cards made with the August 2019 box! These beautiful floral stamp sets were designed in collaboration with Alex Syberia and they are GORGEOUS! Today I have a video showing you how I created these cards.
I’m often asked how to blend with watercolor markers and NO WATER, so this was the perfect opportunity to visit that idea. Watch my video below or on YouTube for the process:
I start with Bristol smooth cardstock and gold heat emboss the images. Then I use the Zig watercolor markers with NO WATER! Yes, this provides such a vibrant look. Be sure to watch the video for the tips I share in blending.
I fussy cut the images out and popped them up using foam tape to create extra dimension. I used a stamp from the same set for the sentiment. To finish off the card, some sparkling clear gemstones.
For the background, I used Distress Ink to get that smooth blend. For those of you who don’t enjoy ink blending, try using patterned paper like I did on this next card:
It still provides a beautiful background for that flower to sing! Aren’t these images just beautiful? If you haven’t ordered your August box yet, be sure to visit the store soon. I’m sure these will sell out fast.
Thanks for stopping by today! I’ll see you next time with some more inspiration,
