Sepia Colouring, and Envelope Stamping
Today I’m up with a project for Chunky Monkey Crafts again! I always love to show off the gorgeous stamps on the envelopes, but love to create a project to go with them too!
This time, I have used ‘ made with love’ as a stamp on the back of my card, and ‘warning, opening will induce a smile’ on my envelope flap.
The card I created to go with the stamps is an idea I had recently- it is a technique I also plan on videoing for you in the near future, so please stay tuned for that!
I bought a sepia ink pad from versafine, and wanted to do a play on no lines colouring- many moons ago I coloured a stamp with only my ‘E’ copic markers, but I did it with black lines, and they looked ok, but it could have been better. When my sepia pad arrived, I knew I wanted to give the technique a go again, with the C.C designs rubber stamp ‘ latte kikki la rue’, as a play on the fact she was holding a coffee cup, and coffee is well, brown. (especially the way I drink it!)
I also decided to inject a tiny pop of colour with the red heart on the coffee cup, and the sparkly red hearts I used as embellishments. These I die cut using a little MFT stamps planner die set which includes a heart, coloured with the same copic marker I used for the heart on the coffee cup, and added sparkle with a spectrum noir sparkle pen, and finally a highlight using a white gel pen.
I love to ‘ground’ my images so in the same colours I used for the image, I created her a little patch of ground to stand on.
Because I was keeping this cas with a lot of white space, I finished with a simple doodled border and matted onto kraft cardstock. I was toying with adding a sentiment to the card, but I loved the look of so much white space, and having the only stamped wording being the awesome stamps from CMC!
