Today I had fun playing with the Life in the Forest Stamp Set and made it into a valentine card! I think those two animals have something going on! I stamped them with Memento Black Ink on Whisper White card stock and colored in with Blendabilities Markers so that I could cut them out with my Paper Snips and place them on the “grass”. The grass is two strips of Old Olive torn to give it that rough edge. The trees are stamped on the Brights Backgrounds Designer Series paper and cut out. The greeting on the card is stamped with the Just Sayin’ Stamp Set. The background of the paper is sponged lightly with Soft Sky ink.
It’s fun to play with these little animals and especially to color with the Blendabilities Markers. You must use Memento Ink and they work best using Whisper White Card Stock. Just be sure to have something underneath the card stock when you color as the ink will seep through the paper. I love the feel of coloring with these markers. You don’t HAVE to do the blending and shading with them, if you like you can just color in with them. Keep it fun and easy! But these markers really are fun to play with.
