A Rocking Day!

Hi everyone, today I would like to share another masculine card project with you all!

I started my project by stamping this image by SugarPea Designs called “Jukebox Jive” onto Strathmore Bristol Smooth Surface paper using black ink and I clear heat embossed afterwards, using clear embossing powder. This way my lines stay black and crisp no matter how much water I add.

Now I can start the colouring process and for today’s project I’m using my Spectrum Noir Aqua Markers. I used the colours: Chocolate, Fern, Daffodil, Gold, Terracotta, Sandstone and Charcoal in combination with a water brush. But really, you can use any colour you like with this fun image! I just keep adding more layers onto the image until I’m happy with how it looks, dry in between layers with your heat tool.

You can find all the Aqua Markers that I used on today’s project here!

After the colouring is done I add back in some highlights using a white gel pen and I fussy cut the image leaving a small border.

For my background I die cut a squire panel from the same paper that I used before, two sizes smaller than my card base. I stamped the sentiment and the other background elements onto the panel using black ink and I also heat embossed using clear embossing powder. These sentiment/background elements are also in the stamp set that contains the jukebox.

Next I die cut a slightly larger square panel from gold mirror card stock and I adhered both square panels together using liquid glue. This combination I adhered to a creme coloured linen textured card base using one millimetre thick foam tape. And to finish my project I now only have to adhere the coloured and fussy cut image on top, also using one millimetre thick foam tape.

And that is it for today’s project! I wish you a creative day!
