The theme of this month’s Stamptastic Friends Blog Hop is Sale-A-Bration, and I am here showcasing the Delicate Dahlias set with the No-Line Colouring Technique, just one of many techniques that I will be teaching on my upcoming Stampin’ Blends Alcohol Marker Course.
You could earn this set for FREE, when you spend over £90 with Stampin’ Up! from 3rd August to 30th September.
The Stamptastic friends are a lovely bunch of Stampin’ Up! Demonstrators who want to share their passion for all things crafty with you, so do be sure to hop around using the links at the bottom of this post for more ideas and inspiration.
I stamped the Dahlias in Daffodil Delight ink, but stamped it off about 3 times first so I had a really faint image, before colouring it in using my Stampin’ Blends alcohol markers, in Poppy Parade, Daffodil Delight and So Saffron. I have actually got these colour Dahlias growing in my garden at the moment, they are so beautiful!
The Designer Series Paper is also a Sale-A-Bration item, and actually co-ordinates with the Hand Penned Petals suite of products. These are the most amazing black and white papers, and you get 12 sheets of 12″ x 12″, again for free, but this time with a £45 purchase.
The Base Card layer is Basic Black, with a layer of Basic Black cut to 14cm x 10cm, embossed with the lovely ‘Pretty Flowers’ embossing folder. This gives a stark contrast to the black Designer Series Paper and the bold and beautiful flowers.
The leaves are also coloured in using the No-Line Colouring Technique, this time stamped in Granny Apple Green and also coloured in with the co-ordinating colour Stampin’ Blends.
A white heat embossed sentiment, a white twine bow and some coloured pearls finish off this card nicely, I think – oh, and don’t forget all the dimensionals too!
I hope that I have inspired you to have a go at some new techniques with your alcohol markers, or to join my 2021 Autumn Winter Stampin’ Blends course, you can find the details below. For now though, please do hop around and see what amazing projects everyone else has in store for you today.
Until next time – Happy Stamping xx
