When I bought these I did have a purpose so I didn't just buy them to have them. I want to use them as practice for coloring. I figured I could use them for all my favorite mediums of coloring and it will help improve my skills. This one was my favorite so I thought I would color it first. I stamped it on Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock using Simon Says Stamp Intense Black ink.
These stamps are a clear stamp. I used a stamp platform to stamp it so that it would get a consistent impression. It did take several times to do that and even then it was still pretty light in some areas. I thought I would start off by practicing with Copic markers first which is why I used the paper and ink that I did. I wanted to focus on contrast this time and blending with my E markers.
After coloring the piece I cut the sentiment and fussy cut the stamp image, which was really easy since it's a rectangle lol. I used my Spectrum Noir glitter pen in clear over certain areas and on the sentiment die cut. Then I layered Glossy Accents over the top. To finish I cut a light gray piece of cardstock to layer underneath and adhered those to the red cardstock. Then layered the small strip of black and white stripes which helps the card fit on to a 4.25 in x 5.5in card proportionally.
