Day twenty-one of the second Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge. Our neighbour is in hospital for a few days and I wanted to make a card for her to hopefully raise a smile.
I stamped the trash can creature and the cloud using Memento ink and then stamped the sentiment with Versamark ink and heat embossed it in silver.
I coloured the images with Copic markers and went over the outlines of the creatures with a Memento marker to give him a bit more definition. The raindrops and trash can were covered with Wink of Stella to give a little sparkle.
In hindsight I really shouldn’t have bothered to try and blend Distress ink around the edge — I can get a good blend when I’m doing a large area, but I haven’t got the knack for smooth blends around the edge of a panel. At least I managed to get it evenly grungy all the way around.
Then I just mounted it flat on a top-folding card base and added a few sequins.
I really need to practise edging with Distress ink. And I also need to figure out how to get even coverage with the Wink of Stella as it tends to blob (though that may just be this particular pen).
