Coloring the Succulent Border Stamp

Coloring the Succulent Border Stamp

Hello there my friends! Great to have you with me today on the B|M Inspiration Team Blog. Daniel West here with a card featuring the Succulent Border Stamp and coloring with alcohol markers.

I love simple card designs that can make a beautiful statement. This stamp lends itself to simplicity, since it covers two thirds of the an A2 panel. To begin my card, I stamped the succulent image out on a Neenah Solar White panel using Cabbage ink. Then, I colored in the succulents, roughly following a picture I found from an image search of Google. 

You will see greens, aquas, blues, yellows and violets all together. Who knew succulents came in so many colors? It took me two hours to finish the coloring and shading on the image.

When I finished, I stamped the sentiment from the same stamp set in the center of the panel and heat embossed it. It looks black when seeing it head on, but then shifts to a metallic purple as you move it! It is sooo beautiful in person.

Note: The Embossing Powder of the Month, only $8 per month, comes straight to your door at no additional charge. Such a great deal.

To finish off the card, I adhered a piece of fun foam to the back of the panel with some glue and adhered it all to a white A2-sized card base. 

I hope you enjoyed this Succulent Border Stamp card. Go try it yourself!! If you haven't purchased this particular stamp, and you'd like to, I have a grid full of supplies below. I give you permission to shop!! (LOL)

Thanks again for joining me today. Remember to create your own ending!
