Colored Background Cards with Farhana

February 16, 2020

Hey Roadies and Happy Sunday (aka Craft day, right?) Unfortunately for me it’s chores day, but I did manage to get some coloring done over the week and get to share this fun pair of cards with you!

I love creating backgrounds using smaller stamp images, so when I came across the Art Supplies Background I just couldn’t stop using it! After unpacking my copics, I colored one the traditional way on white paper stamped with a copic friendly ink. BUT it took a really long time! So for the second, I decided to try a new technique!

What’s the new technique? Well I used a fine detail white embossing powder to emboss the Art Supplies Background onto a heavy weight black cardstock. Then I used my copic markers to color along the embossed lines, and loved the neon look!

Lastly, for the sentiments, I used the Compliments Volume 1. I embossed the sentiment on to a strip of black card stock and trimmed it down before attaching it to the card front with some foam tape.

Which card do you like better? Let me know in the comments!

I was pleasantly surprised at how well the technique worked! I hope you got a chance to play around with it!
