Hello and welcome back! Carol here, over at Scraps & Ink, here to showcase another card from the beautiful August Release! This time, I am sharing with you a card from the set: Prized Life. This is a gorgeous set. I never used to be interested in coloring florals, but once I saw this set, it was love at first sight!
I created a slimline card and designed it in my Cricut software. I the Prized Life flowers on Neenah Classic Crest 65# paper, and used Copic markers to color everything in. I added some highlights with a white gel pen, and added additional shading with my N2 marker. I didn’t have matching, colored card stock, so I just used one of my alcohol markers to color more Neenah 65# paper, and used that to mat my layer.
What I love about alcohol markers is that the ink dries very smoothly. You couldn’t even tell that I made several back and forth strokes! Let’s have a closer, more detailed look!
Finally, I added random dots with my marker, and topped the dots with glossy accents to give the appearance of enamel dots.
What I love about this card the most is how I was able to use what I already have. How do you stretch your supplies? Let us know below and stay tuned for more creativity! See you again, soon!
