Happy Friday Stampers! We have had such gorgeous weather here it was quite a surprise to wake up to rain. I can’t complain though and we need the rain to water all the grass we planted. Rainy days make for perfect stamping weather!
For today’s post I am sharing a video I made showing the technique of coloring kraft cardstock and the different looks you get using different coloring mediums.
The first coloring medium I featured in the video is using Stampin Up Write Markers to color directly onto a piece of crumb cake. I stamped several images from the Stampin Up Paisleys & Poises stamp set using Versamark ink onto a piece of crumb cake cut to 4.25. x. 5.5. I applied white embossing powder and then heat set all the images with my heat tool. After embossing all the images, I got to coloring them with the In Color Write Marker set. I love these 5 new colors from Stampin Up and just thought they looked beautiful on this kraft colored cardstock.
The next medium I featured was a plain white colored pencil. I started with the same stamped and white heat embossed card layer but instead of coloring with markers, I used the white colored pencil. This gives you a more soft look that is perfect for wedding cards, sympathy cards, or really any occasion.
The last couple mediums I showed in the video are Spectrum Noir Sparkle Markers and Zig Real Clean Color Markers. The sparkle markers give so much shimmer and shine to your card. Zigs are a great alternative if you don’t have the Stampin Write Markers or anything similar.
