Stampin Dreams Petal Passion Blends Card
Hi! My name is Tracy Marie Lewis and I full time travel throughout the US in a fifth wheel trailer. I am a Stampin' Up! demonstrator sharing my papercrafting passion wherever I go. Today I am joining a group of creative demonstrators who will share their favorite Stampin' Up! designer series paper (DSP). I hope you enjoy my project and are inspired by all of the great projects along today's hop!
Today's project uses Petal Passion DSP because I love to color. Stampin' Blends, a black Copic marker (any permanent black marker will work) and a dash of white gel pen made a lovely focal image. I created a short video walkthrough of the layers I created for the project. I also explain how I get more range of color by mixing colors together for a more natural looking image.
I don't often used colored card bases, but I felt that black cardstock would set off the focal image and would tie the inside of the card to the front by having a colored band of the DSP along the bottom. I also outlined the small strip with black like I did the outside front.
I was able to hand draw flowers on the envelope by tracing from a small piece of left over DSP. It is easy to see the black lines through the envelope when you place it on a window, or you can use a light box. I used a .5 Copic Multiliner which will not smudge when alcohol inks are applied over it, any permanent ink marker should work.
