Step by Step for The Artist
- For the card base, cut a piece of Neenah Classic Crest 110# cardstock to 4.25″ x 11″ and score at 5.5″ for a top fold card.
- Cut a piece of Grapesicle Cardstock by My Favorite Things to 3.25″ x 4.5″
- Stamp the image from Anita Jeram The Artist Mini on a Copic friendly paper with a Copic compatible ink (here I used Hammermill Premium Color Copy Cover 100# Cardstock with Amalgam Ink in Obsidian by Gina K. Designs).
- Stamp the image on a piece of masking paper (I used Inkadinkadoo Stamping Mask Paper) and fussy cut the image.
- Cover the stamped image with the mask.
- Ink the City Block Background Stamp by My Favorite Things with Sweet Sixteen Ink Pad by Catherine Pooler Designs.
- Stamp City Block stamp over the mask to create a background.
- Remove mask and trim panel to 3″ x 4.25″ (I used the smallest die in the Diagonal Stitched Rectangles set by Pinkfresh Studio).
- Color image with Copic markers as shown in video.
- Cut a piece of craft foam to 2.75″ x 4″ and adhere to back of image with a strong adhesive. I used Beacon’s 3 in 1 Adhesive.
- Stamp sentiment with Versafine Claire ink in Nocturne on a piece of white cardstock and trim to 2″ x .75″ Cut one edge into a fishtail if desired.
- Cut a piece of white cardstock to 1.25″ x 7/8″ and color a border using the BG05 Copic marker.
- Assemble layers as shown in image.
That’s all for me today. Hope you enjoyed the card and video. See you next time!
