Today I have a card to share that utilizes my drawing skills again. It's been a while since I've really drawn anything so doing some drawing on these past two cards has been quite nice. Makes me realize how much I miss it and need to get back into it. :-). Don't get me wrong, I love my stamps and I will continue to stamp my little heart out but I think I'll do some drawing and painting again too. I'll do some on cards and maybe some other things too. :-)
Anyway, here's my card...
So I drew my three shamrocks in pencil then traced over with a fine tip black sharpie. Then I coloured them in with my Spectrum Noir markers (CG2, LG5, JG6). Then I masked off my shamrocks and stamped a small dot (Technique Tuesday, Flurry Set) in yellow (Memento) then splattered some watered down Mellow Moss (SU!). Then I took my mini coral stencil (TCW) and sponged on some glossy accents. I wanted the stenciled part to be subtle. Then I took my heart stamp (Verve Stamps, Hoppy Easter Set) and stamped it to look like a shamrock using StazOn dove grey ink. Then I stamped my sentiment (STAMPlorations, Sketched Blooms Set) in black. I added a few sequins (Neat and Tangled) for some sparkle. Lastly, I attached my panel to my card base with some foam dots.
