GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! Today I’m sharing a project that features the RAM You’re My Jam stamp set which was part of the new release by My Favorite Things. My friend Susan Itell over at Simple Stamping fell in love with this stamp set and asked if I would do a Zoom session with her to color it. Susan adored the card made by MFT design team member Angelica Conrad, who graciously shared the Copic colors she used on her card. So to prepare for our Zoom session, I went ahead and colored the images myself, using Angelica’s marker choices as the basis for my color scheme and adding in a few more of my own.
Today’s project features:
- RAM You’re My Jam by My Favorite Things
- Spotlight Sentiments by My Favorite Things
- Copic coloring (marker list below)
- Additional basic supplies linked in thumbnails below.
- Supplies linked with compensated affiliate links used where possible at no cost to you.
Making the Card
I find that the E markers are more difficult to blend. Lighter E colors tend to shatter the blending when used with darker colors so that I end up layering and re-layering to get a smooth blend. This time, I used tip to tip blending and had a much easier time with the blending.
For tip to tip blending, select two markers in your blend (dark/medium or medium/light) and hold the lighter marker in your dominant hand (i.e. the hand you write with). Using the light marker, pick up some of the ink from the tip of the darker marker. When you color, you will have a tone that is a blend of the two markers that will make it easier to transition from dark to light.
When finishing the card, I added a strip sentiment from the Spotlight Sentiments stamp set. It was a little wide for my layout so I trimmed off the top sentiment row from the stamped image. I backed it with a band of solid cardstock as well as a band of striped design paper to finish off the design.
That’s all for me today! Hope you enjoyed this fun project. See you again soon!
