In Class - June

Thursday, June 21, 2012

This month class participants made three cards, each demonstrating a different colouring technique.

This deep Concord Crush purple is one of my favourite colours.  With the approach of the release of a new Stampin' Up! Catalogue it will not be long before this lovely colour retires.  The pretty flower on this card is from the Simply Soft Set, another soon to be retired product.  It lends itself perfectly to colouring, which has been done here in blender pen using matching inks.

While the image in the first card was stamped in Black Stayz on Ink to ensure the outline colour would not end up blended, in the project below Soft Suede Ink was used for the Elements of Style roses imagery to create a softer look when Blushing Bride Ink was applied with the blender pen.
Participants were shown how to use the Versamarker to add a touch of gold embossing to select parts of the images.

A stained glass effect was created in the third project.
The Simply Soft flower was stamped on vellum in VersaMark Ink and white embossed.  We then turned the paper over and coloured in the back of the image with a selection of Stampin' Write Markers.

In keeping with our colouring theme, the June class challenge is to create a card incorporating an image that has been coloured in a method of your choosing.  I look forward to seeing what you come up with!
