Read on to see my card for today featuring one of the gorgeous Uptown Girl stamps from Stamping Bella!
Today I’m sharing the last of my little series of “cloudy sky background” cards, featuring a simply Copic cloudy sky background which I shared a step by step tutorial for earlier in the week. Click the banner below to be taken to that post!
Stamp & Other Details:
This lovely stamped image is an older release from the Stamping Bella Uptown Girl collection – Uptown Girls Belinda & Bernadette Bench Buddies. They come with a sentiment which reads “it’s so nice having a friend like you by my side”.
UK/European readers: you can now find the latest Stamping Bella releases at Make the Day Special here in the UK. I highly recommend Tara’s store for the speedy dispatch and awesome customer service. Tara doesn’t currently have Belinda & Bernadette in stock, so get in touch via the store if you’d like her to add her to a future delivery!
I stamped this image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card (my favourite for colouring with Copic and other alcohol based markers).
I kept the card very simple and simply trimmed the image using my Fiskars High Precision Personal Paper Trimmer * and created a mat layer by trimming some white MiC card and colouring it with a Copic marker (you can see how I do this HERE). The card is A6 sized. I create my own card blanks using a Martha Stewart Scoring Board * and bone folder * (I don’t like the plastic scoring tools, I use a bone folder and have had mine for several years).
Copic Colouring Information:
If you want to find out the details of the Copic markers I used to colour this particular image, when you purchase the stamp from Stamping Bella or any retailer you can get a free Colour Map with all the marker details broken down for you. These are available for all of the newest images, and many of the older ones too.
Thanks for stopping by!
I hope you have enjoyed today’s post as much as I enjoyed creating it for you. I really hope that you find the little step by step tutorial helpful. If you do, please share a link to your own colouring in the comments section or tag me over on Instagram (@markergeek) I’d love to see!
