August 2018 Card Kit – More Card Kit Inspiration with Kristina Werner!
Hi all! Kristina here with some more card kit inspiration! The flower images in the August 2018 Card Kit are gorgeous! I couldn’t resist creating a one-layer card using the Mandy’s Flower Shed stamp set.
I love the look of colored pencil on a dark surface, so I used some Slate cardstock as my card base. I wanted just the flowers (the tops of the jar image and flower pot image), so I masked off the bottom and sides of the card and stamped the tops of those images in VersaMark Ink. I applied some white embossing powder and then heat set it. I also stamped and embossed the “Thank You” from the stamp set.
Before removing the masking, I ink blended some white pigment ink around the area.
Then I colored the flowers and leaves with Faber-Castell Polychromos colored pencils. For the flowers, I first colored a light layer of white and then added colors on top. This makes the colors more vibrant.
I hope you enjoy today’s card! You can pick up the August 2018 Card Kit here, or you can subscribe to receive this kit and future kits.
Love it Kristina!
I love the effect you’ve achieved and it’s all one layer too!
Fabulous card! I love the colouring on the slate cardstock!
Wow!!! Really Beautiful and creative card!!!
Beautiful, I thought you used velum. Very clever.
I love the way your card came out. What a wonderful way to change up the stamps and create something different! Beautiful!!!
Love the slate cardstock!
What a great tip on adding a little bit of white pencil before coloring. I’m attempting to get more comfortable with my colored pencils so this will be great to try!
This is the card that made me order this kit. Just beautiful.
Kristina is such a great artist and her ideas are so good. What a gorgeous, dimensional card she made again with the awesome new SSS Kit. This card is a gorgeous sample from her awesome work.
Thank you Kristina!
I love your videos! The talent you have within just poors out. Love your work.
