Just for You

Hi there

I've found a little time this afternoon to have a play and decided I felt like I needed more practice at colouring with my ProMarkers.  I still only have about a quarter of the colours so still struggle a bit with blending as I don't have many colours that work together.

I also had a play with an unused stamp.  This is an unmounted stamp by S.w.a.l.k. so I needed to get this mounted first before I could use it.  I got in a bit of a sticky mess with my EZ Mount but got there in the end!

I stamped the image and coloured it in with ProMarkers before cutting out with a rectangular die.  I then chose some patterned paper and die cut it with a flag die, ensuring that the diagonal stripes were running in the same direction as the raindrops on the image.  I finished with a simple sentiment.  This was originally the finished card but I then spotted the challenge sketch at Seize the Sketch and realised I could enter this card if I added something to the top right corner.  After a rummage in my stash I came up with a twist of ribbon, held together with a flower head brad, in colours to match the rest of the design.

Materials used:

  • Stamps: S.w.a.l.k. - After The Rain; Clearly Besotted - A Little Sentimental
  • Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
  • Coloured with ProMarkers
  • Patterned Paper: My Minds Eye - Vanity Fair
  • Dies: Spellbinders Nestabilities - Classic Rectangles Large; MFT Die-namics - Fishtail Flag Stax
  • Grosgrain Ribbon: American Crafts
  • Flower brad from stash
