Oddball White Rabbit by Stamping Bella

Rowhouse Greetings | Oddball White Rabbit (Alice in Wonderland Collection) by Stamping Bella

GOOD MORNING Friends! I’m back today with a new video featuring one of the cards from my recent class at The Queen’s Ink. The Oddball Alice in Wonderland Collection from Stamping Bella is full of fun images and this one is my favorites.

So sit back, get comfortable and let’s roll the video!

In case you missed it in the video, I also included a color map. The color scheme is pretty simple. Since this was a class card, I try to keep the number of markers to a minimum.

For the background, I stenciled the clock in the corner with the Clockwork Layering Stencil by Tim Holtz using Distress Oxides in Fossilized Amber and Candied Apple. Then I inked a corner of one of Wendy Vecchi’s stamps (Screen) with Delicata Inks in Golden Glitz and Rose Gold and randomly stamped the background. I stamped the sentiment multiple times with Ranger Archival Ink and added a few gears as embellishments.

That’s it for today! See you soon!

Vital Rose by Power Poppy

Vital Rose by Power Poppy

GOOD MORNING FRIENDS! I’m back today with another card featuring the Vital Rose digital stamp by Power Poppy. I’ve been playing with no-line coloring and thought that this would be a great image to use.

The Vital Rose image comes with a no line version where the usual black lines are considerably lighter. I lightened them further (because apparently I like a good challenge). I kept a reference copy of the image nearby to help.

There is a fabulous video by Cindy Lawrence in which she colors this same image in shades of blue. She started by determining the darkest areas of each petal across the entire rose. I couldn’t visualize that, so I started from the center of the rose and worked petal by petal. It took awhile to complete and was pretty painstaking, but the end result was worthwhile.

Once I was finished coloring the image, I stamped a sentiment from the Floribunda stamp set by Power Poppy in Versafine ink and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I trimmed the image using the Nordic Frame die set by The Greetery. I layered the image with a gingham paper from the Tiny Check 6×6 paper pack by My Favorite Things.

It’s important to remember that sometimes Copic coloring has an ugly stage. I’ve learned that I just have to keep going and work past it. After all, it’s only ink and paper. If it’s still ugly in the end, then I can just throw it away.

I won’t say that it was quick and easy, but I am pleased with the results.
