Do you remember that unfinished card that set me off to creating cards again? Well here it is below. It is a shaker AND a pop-up card. Can you tell that cupcakes make me creative? :p
Digital kit: Bake Me A Cake by Kristin Cronin-Barrow
Stamps: Cupcake Collection from Papertrey Ink, Kitchen Tilda and Sweetheart Tilda from Magnolia, It’s A Day For Cupcake (AR171) Hero Arts
Ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Coloring: Copic markers
Seed beads and ribbed ribbon.
You may see that the coloring isn’t as good as the other two cards I posted before. Yes, you are quite right. With this one I used cold-pressed watercolor paper. I experienced with a lot of different papers for my Copic, with this one I wanted to see how it goes because it was kind of off-white (it has a warm tone) and it has interesting ‘ridged’ texture. Turns out it sucked my Copic’s ink and I needed to blend a lot. Certainly not going back to this one. I intended to use the paper with gamsol/sansodor, but I found that the technique wasn’t for me. Back to Copic it is, and of course my smooth papers ;)
Last Saturday I also just got new stamps and ink stash. At the moment I am so into coloring characters, but when my PTI order came I fell in love with object stamping again. Will share a new card made with it later this week. And I also ordered a Magnolia stamp – Little Mermaid Tilda – which I think officially makes me have a new crave/obsession. I love mermaid images! I just got Sweet November’s Bubbles Lostlagoon and am thinking about also getting La-La Land Crafts’ Mermaid Marci. It’s a good thing we have an all year tropical weather here so I can create any summery card whenever I want heehee.
Oh! By the way, have you seen Dani Mogstad’s recent kits? So adorable!!! Check these out:
