Hi all! I'm back with a card featuring You Brought Me Love for Santoro's Gorjuss line. These stamps are so beautiful, I want every single one! My Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers came in the mail a couple of days ago (almost an entire month early!! Eeeee!!) and I have been dying to play with them. So I finally got some free time this weekend and chose this lovely lady to color.
I started by using my Tim Holtz Alterations ATC & Corners Bigz Die to cut the panel that I stamped my Gorjuss lady on. I used Ranger Archival Jet Black ink to stamp her so that it wouldn't run when I used the water based Zig markers. I was really just wanting to see what would work and what wouldn't with the markers so I wanted to try doing some skin tones, some hair, and then blending colors. The two colors on her dress are fairly far apart in tone but blended beautifully for a really pretty ombre effect. I'm going to have to make a video using these bad boys soon!
My card base is kraft cardstock and it is slightly smaller than an A2 card. I used some flowers I had left over from another project (see that video here) and some strips of paper from the March 2015 Simon Says Stamp Card Kit. I also used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Border dies to add some detail to the paper strips. I am entering this card in Simon Says Stamp Tie It Up Wednesday Challenge so I added some Lawn Trimmings with some cute little accent knots to tie the green back in. The card base is also dry embossed with a Cuttlebug folder.
I hope you enjoyed this little peek at the Zig Clean Color Real Brush markers. I have listed all of the supplies I used below. Stop back soon for more crafty happiness! Bye!
