Hearts on a string card: using my very first stamp!

Hello, crafty peeps! Today I am sharing a card I created for Valentines Day using MY VERY FIRST STAMP by Inkadinkado. I remember looking at this stamp 2 years ago thinking, ” What I am supposed to do with it.” This time around I did better with it by implementing all the coloring tips I learned from The Daily Marker creator Kathy.

I colored the hearts with Copics and added details with Gelly Roll pen. Shadowing with C2 marker made the images pop a little! I cut out the hearts with an unbranded stamp die and adhered it to the card base. A bit of ribbon and a few stamp images by Lawn Fawn, and the card is finished. I am totally surprised by the results.

Thank you for stopping by; looking forward to seeing the projects created by my new crafty buddies!

Log into your Instagram accounts and check out amazing coloring projects from crafters from all over the world. I have participated in at least 2 Daily Marker coloring challengers, and had a blast. Pull out your stamps and get creative: you can use any coloring medium.

I have recently purchased a pack of 24 Prisma Color pencils, and I am giving them a try. I love how bright the colors are!¬† I am thinking about purchasing the gamsol and a colorless blender pencil for better blending. Posting several coloring projects; I have already made one into a card for my sister’s first wedding anniversary.
