Coloring on Dark Card Stock
Well, today's post is an experiment and it was originally done on a scrap piece of Gina K. Design Blue Denim card stock and with the end result I decided it could be made into a card. I stamped the flowers from the Gina K. Designs Watercolor Flowers set with my new Gina K. Designs Warm Glow Amalgam ink. I wanted to see if it would show up on dark card stock in an opaque hue but it showed up more like one would use a clear ink like Versamark. But the design was so vivid that I debated whether to use it just that way or if I should add some color to the design. Well, the only way I knew to add color was with Prismacolor pencils so that was how I added color to the flowers.
I did not have a big enough sheet of the blue card stock to which I had added the flowers so I decided to tear the edge. I also layered that to a panel of Grass Green and tore that edge as well. Then I placed this panel onto a base card of Dusty Rose card stock. The last things I added were the sentiment from that same stamp set and some green and pink gems.
Well, I guess all is not lost as I still think this ended up being a card that was still good enough to be used. It reminds me of Spring. So on the positive side all is well and Spring is coming soon even if it will be only on the calendar. I hope your weekend is filled with great things.
Thanks for visiting and may God bless,
