Here is my July CAS Mix Up Reminder Card using Stamping + Marker Layering + my choice Die Cuts.
Because the many flowers and leaves are quite small I spent probably an hour of relaxing coloring with my new SU 2016 In Color markers. I used Karen Barber's SCS Marker Layering Tutorial for my marker technique. I stamped my image using SU Archival Basic Gray ink. I colored the leaves twice with Emerald Envy then the flowers twice with Peekaboo Peach, Flirty Flamingo and Sweet Sugarplum. I added my Dazzling Details to the centers of each flower, let dry before adding a 2nd layer of DD. I thought it was just the right amount of bling.
I Die Cut my main image and the frame with my SU Square Collection. I colored the frame with my Dapper Denim marker so I could get subtle streaks. I then sanded the frame a bit and inlayed my main image.
When looking for the right sentiment I came across the SU Die Cut Paper Doily, which worked well for softening all the square lines. Added the sentiment and......done! I really liked the results of my 5" x 5" card. It was fun being able to use all 5 of the new In Colors. Hope you like it too.
You still have until July 24th to join the fun at our CAS Mix UP July Challenge. Happy Stamping!
