Good Morning! If you haven’t seen any videos from Daniel West, @delandarti, or his YouTube it is definitely worth a visit. He truly breaks down coloring in easy steps.
He recently did a guest appearance on the free Card Maker’s Success Summit and it was awesome. He talks about storybook coloring with alcohol markers. If you subscribe to his blog you can also pick up a light source work sheet.
Here are a few cards I created using his techniques.
The first card I used Simon Hurley’s Stamping Foam to make the background This inexpensive card making tool really is a game changer allowing you to creat a stamp out of anything you can press it on. The foam can be found HERE.
The foam was simply heated up for 5-10 seconds with my heat tool and then pressed onto a textured placemat. The foam was inked up with Distress Oxides and stamped on to card stock.
The mouse stamp is from Colorado Craft Company and designed by Anita Jeram. It’s so cute. I colored the image with a little help from Daniel and I think it turned out pretty cute.
The second card is also created using the stamp foam…..the SAME stamp foam. You simply wash the foam, heat it up and the old impression disappears. The foam was heated again and I pressed it into a couple circle dies from Gina K Design’s Master Layout 3.
The foam was inked up with a Distress Oxide and stamped on a piece of card stock. I used the Zen Flower Stamps & Dies from GKD. Simply colored them and popped it up on foam squares. The base was attached to black card stock and adheres to a white card base. The HELLO sentiment came from Concord & 9th. I hope you enjoy these card and as always thanks for stopping by.
