Today we are colouring with markers.
Have you fallen in-love with colouring all over again? When I was little my mum would often bring home a thick colouring book for me. As a treat, I would also get a fresh pack of Crayola with the built-in sharpener. Remember those? Did you enjoy colouring with Crayola too when you were little? I would then spend hours enjoying the fresh smell of a new book and the waxy smell of crayons. Ah, the simple joys of childhood.
Fast forward to today, I still enjoy colouring. As an adult, it has become an enjoyable hobby (and a cheap relaxation activity) for me. Although now, instead of a box of Crayola, my choice of colouring tools have become a bit more sophisticated.
Stampin’ Write markers are so good for colouring. They are vibrant, acid-free, water-based, dual-tipped and I never have to throw them away. Yes, they have ink refills.
Here’s how I made the card:
- On a Basic White card front, stamp the flower with Staz-On. I stamped it repeatedly to cover the entire space. Also, stamp background splatters to fill the gaps.
- Colour each flower in monochome, in varying shades so that the petals have detail in them.
- Attach a greeting and a butterfly cut-out. Add sequins or gems also for a finishing touch.
- Attach the card front to a card base.
Here’s a list of products I used:
- Blended Blooms Stamp
- Regals Stampin’ Write Markers
- Subtles Stampin’ Write Markers
- Basic White Thick Cardstock
- Butterflies Thinlits Dies
I hope that you enjoyed this card inspiration and that you’ll give colouring with markers a go.
