Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Copic Colored Superheroes
Hi friends and welcome back to another Studio Monday! Today I have a super fun birthday card to share with you featuring the ADORABLE Caped Cuties stamp set from Clearly Besotted!
This stamp set has got to be one of the cutest, kid themed sets I’ve seen in a long time; I love that the stamp set includes so many different animals in it that can be used on their own, or together! I have used almost all of the critters for my card and I’ll be sharing my process on how I built this card in the video below.
First I want to talk a bit about my coloring process; because there are SO MANY images in this card, I needed to use a limited color palette. This not only makes it easier to replicate (because it does not require a lot of marker colors; I used Copics today), but it also helps the card coordinate well together. If I had used a bunch of different colors on each critter, it would have created a more confusing design and the images would have competed with each other a lot more.
I also made sure that my overall card design was clean lined and simple; again, because there are so many critters to fit into this design, having a distracting card front for the critters to sit on would not allow them to take such a dramatic center stage. Keep this in mind when you are creating an heavy action/embellished card; it will allow your main focal point to be the star of the show (especially if you’ve put a lot of hard work into it)!
I used distress inks to create a nice backdrop for the critters and laid a Pretty Pink Posh Storybook 4 die cut over top to give the critters some separation from the sky. I also added some foil stars using foil paper and our Simon Says Stamp Holiday Shapes die; these little embellishments are a simple finishing touch that adds so much to the overall card!
So to see how I put this card together, be sure to watch the video below or over on our Youtube channel! And if you enjoy, please give it a big thumbs up and subscribe for more weekly inspiration!
