Scenic meadow card

I've come across a few scenic cards created using the In the Meadow stamp set coloured in a somewhat monochromatic theme that I just loved.

I wanted to give this a try myself but couldn't find any instructions, therefore decided to wing it.

I opted for Copic markers as my colouring medium and as I do not own any real brown I chose warm tan and orange hues.

I started by stamping the images using Tuxedo Black. I coloured everything using alcohol markers and then added subtle highlights with a white gel pen.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections
Stamps: In the Meadow, Sheltering Tree - SU
Ink: Memento - Tuxedo Black
Markers: E000, E11, E13, E31, Y23, YR24, W1, 0 - Copic, Skin tone collection - SU Blendabilities

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.

Timeless Textures Hello

This is another relatively fast and easy card using the Timeless Textures set for the background.
I used several of the stamps to create a simple background border framing my greeting.

I added a few pearls at the top and some sheer ribbon in a coordinating colour at the bottom.
Then matted on a coordinating colour of card ( created by sponging the edges of white with ink).

The card front was mounted with foam tape onto my base for a little added dimension.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollections white
Stamps: Timeless textures, Hello - SU
Ink: Tip Top Taupe, Hello Honey, Mossy Meadow - SU
Misc.: foam tape/mounting squares, pearls, 5/8" organza ribbon

Just for you

It's time for me to try out my new SU stamps set. They have sat around in their box for far too long already. My fingers have been itching to play with the new Timeless Textures set for  while. love the different distressed textures. They are just so very versatile.

I started with a simple card using the different textures in layers to create a lovely sort of frame for my greeting.

I don't often use coloured cardstock as I do no ave too many colours on hand these days. This card is also just white. I inked the edges of my mat to match the sentiment perfectly. The card front was hen mounted onto my base with foam tap for a little added dimension. I also couldn't resist and used a few little rhinestones for a touch of sparkle.

Supplies used:
Cardstock: Recollection white
Stamps: Timeless Textures, Botanicals for You - both SU
Ink: Tip top Taupe, Mossy Meadow, Blushing bride, Crisp Cantaloupe - all SU
Misc.: foam tape/mounting squares, tiny 1/16' and 3/16" rhinestones

Thanks for stopping by! Hope to see you again soon.
