Just Playing

30 04 2017

I got out the kraft paper and played. I’m trying to figure out colors and how they work on the different surface. I LOVE how my lighter colored pencils look on it. I also need to figure out if copics are worth using on it. Over all, it turned out okay.

I took a picture of the process from beginning to end. It was fun to see where this project would lead. I didn’t have a plan when I started out. I just wanted to color šŸ™‚

I started out by stamping the images on kraft paper in brown ink. I used one of my brown copic markers to add shading in before I started using colors.

After I finished with the markers, I went in and added details – light and dark – with my pencils.

After I had everything colored, I used the coordinating dies and cut the pieces out and put them together in a way that made me happy šŸ™‚ After that, I put them on my pixscan mat and used that feature to load the images into my Silhouette work space. I can’t get my pixscan mat to actually work for cutting things out, but I CAN use it to make mats for stamped images, which is what I did šŸ™‚

Once in the Silhouette workspace, I created the card sizes I liked for each arrangement and added a pattern/digital paper I bought from the Silhouette Design Store the other day while taking advantage of their 50% off sale šŸ™‚ From there, I did a print & cut for the card front, cut out the black mats for the floral arrangements and assembled the cards. Then I stamped the sentiments on the front.
