Addicted to Coloring #2

Hello and happy Monday, everyone! Hope you had a restful and joyful Thanksgiving, if you are in the US ūüôā ! It’s TaeEun here today sharing three cards I made with love to Coloring once again. I’ve named my debut-post as Addicted to Coloring and I thought it would be fun to make another version of that.

Today I used the big tulip image from¬†Lucky Tulip¬†stamp which EunJi from our team has designed. I love coloring bold floral images. And this tulip is definitely one of my favorites. Did you know that we have Dew Drops in our Shop now? ¬†Today’s cards are featuring all three variations of Dew Drops we have : Clear, Seaglass blue and Silver Dew Drops.

Let’s start with this purple card!


This tulip was colored using Zig markers and water brush. I added some shade around the flower and splatters all over the water color panel using silver Gansai Tambi which can be seen better in close-up picture. I then cut the panel along the extended axis of the flower and around the flower. For the card base I took a piece of textured purple card stock, stamped the Haute Stripes Cling background¬†in embossing ink and silver¬†heat embossed it. I really like how the texture of the card stock made some pattern on the embossing. I adhered the purple panel flat on the card base and then the water color panel using some foam tape on that. The word fabulous¬†was cut from some purple foam and “YOU ARE” from the Basic Labels¬†was¬†stamped in Noir dye ink¬†on some white card stock, cut and foam mounted on the card. For the final touch I added a few clear Dew Drops mixed with two Seaglass blue Dew Drops.


On my second card I colored the tulip using Copic markers first. After Copic coloring I went in with Polychromos colored pencils to add red details on this yellow-red hybrid tulip and some shadows.


I decided to make a front panel with a window for the tulip. So I made a cutting file for that and cut a water color card stock which I colored in green and blue shades using some Distress inks with my Cutting machine. The sentiment from Scripty Greetings stamp set was stamped in Noir dye ink. I added white shadow to it using a gel pen. After I foam mounted the front panel, I scattered some clear Dew Drops on the card and finished it off.


The last card shows three tulips colored with alcohol inks.


To start off I heat embossed the tulips using some silver glitter embossing powder. I masked the tulip in the middle to stamp the other two. I then applied the alcohol inks by dripping and tilted the Glossy cardstock to move the ink in the desired direction. After alcohol ink was dry, I mounted the panel on the card base and added a strip of purple  Glitter Tape. The Sentiment was cut using our Thank You word die from some purple foam and once more from silver glitter paper which I made using our Silver Adhesive Glitter Paper. I glued the silver sentiment on the purple foam and mounted it onto the card.  To finish off the card I added three Silver Dew Drops on the purple glitter strip and scattered tiny flowers from Candy Cane Garden Couture Mix.


Here you can see once again three different coloring projects together: watercoloring, alcohol ink coloring and copic coloring with added details using colored pencils. Which one do you like most? Anyhow I had so much fun making them :).


Thank you so much for stopping by!!! Hope you could find some time for relaxing coloring today!

    I am addicted to your coloring!!! TaeEun the alcohol colored ones continue to wow me! But now that I have had a chance to look at the detailing of your cards, I’m loving the dew droplets, and those wonderful ‘stripes’ on the purple card base! You have such an eye for adding details like these, my friend! xx

    Three fabulous designs using this gorgeous tulip stamp TaeEun. I love the purple and silver stripe with the first and the clever cutting with your machine for the second, and the beautiful embossing and alcohol inks on the third. The colouring using the three different mediums are all fantastic and love the colours you have used. x

    These are all stunning, but the alcohol ink ones… WOW! Any chance you would be willing to do a video (even just something quick with a phone) showing how you use them? I’ve tried a few times but I’m just making a mess and my ink won’t go or stay where I want in the embossed flowers. I must know your tricks
