Love and hugs hand coloured poppy 7x5in card -
Day 190 of my 365 day challenge
HI Craft addicts!
I have made a flower themed card for day 190 of my 365 day challenge which I have coloured in using alcohol markers.
How I made this card:-
- I first of all took one of the Color Cards that come with the Chameleon pens and coloured it in using purple and pinks alcohol markers for the flowers and greens for the leaves and stalks. I must admit that I didn't use the Chameleon pens for this as I am still learning how to use them.
- I then used a grey alcohol marker to add a slight border around them all and a darker beige to ground the flower at the bottom.
- Using a blue alcohol marker I edged the panel and set it aside whilst I worked on the card itself.
- I first of all used my mini score board and scored 3 lines at the top and bottom of a 7" x 5" white card (from the inside) and coloured them using various Altenew inks which lightened once they had dried.
- I also added some very thin Ultra Strong Red liner tape and added some green foil to each border.
- I used some foam tape (on a roll) to the panel and added it to the front of the card.
- Finally, I used the Love and Hugs sentiment from Craftwork Cards Year of Sentiments pad, coloured it using the same inks (again it lightened once it had dried) and attached it to the bottom right hand corner using a mix of foam pads and glue. I also added some Morning Dew Nuvo drops to the panel and let it dry (becomes clear when dry).
And there you are a card that is very easy to make and hopefully would make a great card to celebrate any occasion!
