Hey everyone, it’s Stephanie and I am super excited to be back on The Ton Stamps blog today with a new card. When the newest release came out and I saw the amazing ladies and gent stamps, I was so excited. I love colouring the dresses and creating scenes and I could not wait to ink up the new stamps.
For my card today I used the Plus One stamp set and Born Classy stamp set for the main two images and then I added some greenery from the Floral World stamp set to look like mistletoe. I knew when I stamped the images that I wanted to make the card holiday themed, but I didn’t want to stamp a sentiment on the card front and take away from the scene. So I stamped the ‘mistletoe kisses’ sentiment from the Mistletoe Kisses stamp set on the inside of the card and then I stamped the mistletoe on the card front, to go with it. 😉
I did all of the stamping on Kraft card stock and then I coloured in the man and the woman with my Prismacolor pencils. I have been having so much fun falling back in love with coloured pencils (or pencil crayons as we call them in Canada) and the fashion images from The Ton are perfect to practice with and learn about shading and dimension and achieving sparkle! I coloured her first with holiday reds for her dress and some white gel pen detail to make it look shimmery and sparkly.
I then coloured her hair and skin and stamped the handsome tuxedo guy beside her. I coloured him with coloured pencils as well and gave him a standard black tuxedo with white shirt (so classic and timeless) and then I coloured his bow tie to match her dress. I love how the images pop off of the Kraft paper once they’re coloured.
I cut down the panel a bit, adhered it to some silver sparkle card stock and then I adhered the entire thing to a white top-folding card base. I completed the card by adding some clear sequins for some added detail and dimension.
Thanks so much for joining me on the blog today! I’ll be abck later this month with some more cards to share. 😉
