   2020 - 2022 In-Color Enamel Dots
   Distress Tool (Paper Snips)

First, I colored directly onto the stamp using the various markers listed above. I may have gone over some areas with more than one color. 

I then sprayed water on the stamp and stamped my Basic White panel. I let it sit for a bit without rocking or moving it. I then removed the stamp and let the panel dry.

Next, I stamped my sentiment on the bottom-center of my Just Jade panel.

I then assembled my card base. I adhered the Just Jade panel onto the Basic Black and then onto the Cinnamon Cider card front.

Next, I distressed the edges of the image panel. I used a distress tool, but paper snips can work as well.

I then adhered the image panel to the top-center, right above the sentiment, of the Just Jade panel.

Lastly, I added a few enamel dots to the card front and adhered the Basic White panel to the inside of the card.

  1. I like how you colored on the stamp to make the scene more color realistic. It's a cool technique that I don't do so much, but now that I have some nice new markers, maybe it's time to give it a whirl again!

    1. I hope you give it a try. Some stamps are a bit easier to color than others, but misting on a colored stamp always seems to work. I am usually impressed with the result. Thank you for commenting.
