Pink Ink!

Tuesday 28 February 2017

When I saw this challenge I knew immediately what I wanted to do! Firstly break out my new Stampin' Up!® Watercolor Pencils and secondly use them on the elephant in the Lucky Elephant stamp set.

My pink ombre elephant makes a perfect baby card with the Pop of Pink Specialty Designer Series Paper on a layout I used for one of my cards at the display at On Stage in Brisbane.

 Here's a quick and easy tutorial on how I created my ombre elephant:

Using the Melon Mambo pencil, colour onto the Shimmery White Cardstock
graduating the colour from light to dark.
Blend the colour together with an Aqua Painter and leave to dry.
Edge the elephant with the Melon Mambo marker pen.
Stamp it on the pink ombre background.

A video on my technique is available on my facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/StampingBeautyStampinUp/.

And of course a card isn't complete without the inside decorated.

Would you like to comment?
