Card Re-Do

Hello Coloring fans!
I have a card Re-Do for today's post celebrating Kathy Rac's 10th The Daily Marker 30 Day Coloring Challenge #thedailymarker30day. 

The challenge starts today and ends on June 30, 2018. All it takes to participate in the challenge is color something for 10 minutes a day, and share your progress:) Hope you take the opportunity to join in!

For Day 1: I wanted to share a card I've spent many days coloring. I do like to sneak in a minute her and a minute there and watch how a card emerges!

 Here is the original card I made for the May 2018 Stamp and Die release at Altenew:
All layers of the stamp set Fabulous Floral Stamp Set are inked with Crisp Inks


After taking the Magical Marker Techniques class at Altenew Academy I wanted to try adding more, and more details with the Artistic Markers.
Here is the Re-do card:)
same layout, different elements added to the background, details added with markers

To make this card:
I inked the Fabulous Floral Stamp Set with Crisp Inks: Cherry Blossom minisShades of PurplePocketful of Sunshine minis, and Sea Shore minis


  • Next I added more details to the florals with the Artistic Markers: R702, R705, R335, R902R302, R304
  • Created a mask for the floral arrangement 
  • Cut a stencil onto masking paper with the Mandala Dieplaced it over the masked arrangement, and inked a "doily" to go under the fabulous florals using Arctic crisp ink
  • Removed the stencil mask
  • Inked the small posy stamp from CROWN BLOOM stamp set with Evening Gray crisp ink several times
  • Created splatters with the Artistic Markers: WG05, WG07, and S as described in the Magical Marker Techniques day 4, with rubbing alcohol
  • Removed the mask from the floral arrangement
  • Added shadows with markers and fine line details with Ziggys.
  • Stamped JUST BECAUSE with Jet Black




I'm thrilled with how this turned out...After several coloring sessions, it is fun to see how different the Fabulous Floral stamp set can look with just a few marker details.

I'm adding this to the AECP Gallery for Level two.


Thanks for stopping by!
