Hi everyone, today I’m sharing my first Guest Design project for the Studio Light Jenine’s Mindful Art Collection and you will see more posts with this line in the upcoming weeks! Especially the new Warm & Cozy addition to the Jenine’s Mindful Art Collection is totally awesome: the colour selection, the stamps, the paper pads, all really pretty and affordable!
For today’s card project I stamped the entire image from the “Postcard Daisies” (JMA-WAC-STAMP108 from the new Warm & Cozy addition) stamp onto my paper using Memento “Potter’s Clay” and “Rhubarb Stalk” ink. During the stamping process I made sure that I left room for my sentiment to be stamped later on!
Next I placed the smallest dies from the Studio Light Essentials die set with number STENCILSL199 over the stamped paper and die cut the shape.
Now I can stamp my sentiment onto the largest die cut panel, using black ink and the sentiment stamp from the Jenine’s Mindful Art Essentials Line (with number JMA-ES-STAMP68).
I also stamped the flowers from the Postcard Daisies stamp as well as the separate leave image from the mentioned Essentials stamp onto alcohol marker friendly paper using Spectrum Noir Alcohol-Proof ink in Noir Black. I cut the images next to the stamped lines using my scissors and I edged each stamped image using a black Memento Dual Marker.
Now I’m ready for colouring the stamped images using my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers (mostly Illustrators and one Classique marker).
I used the colours: Classique marker in BO05, Illustrator markers in FS8, BO3, BO4 for the orange, GB2, GY3 and GY5 for the heart of the flower and LG1, AG2 and DG4 for the leaves.
After the colouring is done I added back in some highlights using a white gel pen.
Now that the colouring is done I can think about my finishing touches: I used some small images from the Essentials stamp set to create more texture and the butterfly in the background, I created splatters using a Coliro Pearl Colour in “Mint” and I picked a ribbon from my stash, weaving it through the holes in the largest die cut panel. I also die cut mats with the dies that come in the set from deep red card stock.
And to finish the project completely I adhered all the layers together using liquid glue and adhered the coloured flowers/leaves on top using one millimetre thick foam tape.
And that is it for today’s Warm & Cozy project! I wish you a creative day!
