Stamp Club- Dragon
If you are a part of the BRUTUS MONROE STAMP CLUB, every month you will receive one 2x3 stamp. This stamp is exclusive to the Club before it becomes available in store, and is only $5! That includes shipping! Also, along with the stamp, Club members also get 10% off every in store order, EVERY TIME. That is a fantastic value!
The next upcoming stamp that will be shipping out to club members is this cute little dragon with a fun heart image and sentiment.
I started by stamping the dragon out using RAVEN DETAIL INK. Then, when the ink was dry, I colored it in with my new STYLEFILE ALCOHOL MARKERS. These markers are fantastic! They blend beautifully, even for a beginner marker user like myself. After my image was colored in, I fussy cut him out. I also colored and cut a few hearts out, as well.
I then went to work on my background. I masked off a square in the middle of my cardstock using painter's tape, and then ink blended a few colors on using Distress Ink. I used some blues and yellows to coordinate with the coloring on the dragon.
I then punched a circle out of white cardstock that I also embossed, using the new PETAL LACE EMBOSSING FOLDER. This just gave the circle a little more texture. I stamped the sentiment on a small rectangle and then arranged all my elements over the ink blended square and adhered them down.
This turned out to be a very clean and simple card, but I love the bright colors and how the markers can coordinate to your inks!
Until next time,
