DT Project feat Prima Marketing - 2 Ways to Color Background Stamps


Hello everyone!  Today's Design Team Project features this beautiful background stamp from Prima Marketing.  It was so fun to color and I will show you two different ways to do just that; one very simple and fast, and one more therapeutic!

I started off by stamping the background stamp on some watercolor and Bristol smooth paper so that I can do some easy watercoloring with my Zig markers.  Once heat embossed I dipped the watercolor panel into Distress Oxide Ink to get the blend of colors I prefer.  That was the easy coloring and I highly recommend it. 


The more time intensive coloring came with the Bristol smooth paper because I chose to color each individual flower.  SO FUN!

I finished off the cards with some sparkle using both the Nuvo Mica Mist in Silver Smoke and Tattered Angels in Pearl.   Thank you so much for stopping by!

See-through Circle Card with Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy by Mary Polanco

Hello everyone!  I'm so glad you are crafting with us as we have a blast with this super easy, but WOW card!  Today's card features Lawn Fawn's Slow Down and Enjoy Stamps.  I started off the card by stamping and coloring the elephant from the Lawn Fawn Slow Down and Enjoy stamp set. I used my Spectrum Noir Markers to color them in both warm greys and cool greys.  (I'm saving the warm grey elephant for a future project).
Once my coloring was complete, I worked on the background and made it as simple as I could.   First I ink blended Distress Oxide in Worn Lipstick to get an ombre look.  Then I put a Hero Arts Stencil over it to get a tone on tone look.  Lastly, I spritzed the panel with water to get a more distressed look.  Once complete I used a circle die to cut through the inked up panel as well as the Neenah Solar White 110 lb cardstock.
I placed the front and back of my elephant together using foam dots and nestled him into the circle.  I finished off the card by …
