If you are anything like me, I was not sure if I could get the hang of coloring with alchohol markers. I started buying them a couple of years ago, but never used them very much because I thought it was a difficult learning curve. Well....I was wrong! With practice, I am getting better and better each time I use them! I have bought three different brands of alcohol markers: Copics Sketch, Alenew and Stampin' Up! markers. Copics are by far my favorite, but all three work nicely together, and I often use them all together. It took practice, but I am loving the look I am achieving!
With this card, I used the Slimline Poinsettia stamp set and paired it with Nordic Snowflakes, both from Colorado Craft Company. I discovered this stamp company last Christmas season, and they are a great company with high quality stamps! Right now you can get a 15% discount until Cyber Monday with the code BF2CM!
I stamped the poinsettia images with Memento Ink, and then used my Scan-N-Cut to cut the images out. I then colored the poinsettias with the dark and light Rococo Stampin' Up! markers and finished it with Copic RV21. This color combo is stunning! I stamped the Nordic Snowflakes in alternating colors to match the poinsettias and added gray since the cardbase was going to be black. I popped the poinsettias with foam tape, added the sentiment from the Slimline Poinsettia stamp set and finished with some black bling. Cardbase is 110lb black cardstock. I am pleased with how this turned out!
