Pretty Pink Posh, The Daily Marker Coloring Challange

#thedailymarker30day Challenge : Day 1-5

I know I am really really really behind on this challenge, I have been coloring/creating, just not regularly. The reason being, I needed to take the break, step back and declutter (round 2!), and reorganizing my stash. Knowing what I have and where it is, really helps with productivity. If you follow me on Instagram, then you have already seen these cards, but I’m sharing them on here again so that I can link all the products that I used, and also share a little more into techniques that I used.

Day 1 : Kites with Chameleon Dual Brush Colored Pencils

This card was part of my Dad’s and Grad’s theme week, and you can find all the details here.

Day 2 : Animal Frames with Zig Real Brush Markers

This set of cards was also part of Dad’s and Grad’s Theme week, you can find more details here.

Day 3 : Stamped and inked background with Distress Oxides

I made this card as part of Dad’s and Grad’s theme week, so the exact colors that I used can be found here along with the technique. I shared it as day 3 after a failed attempt to recreate it on Instagram live.

Day 4 : Pigment Ink blending over a Stencil

If you follow me on Instragram, then you probably heard or read about my disastrous attempt to create a rainbow background on live and then again on stories, but I guess all’s well that ends well. I really ended up liking the final card that I created with the card.

To create this card, start with creating a colored background. I created a rainbow, but any combination of colors will work well. I used distress oxide inks in seedless preserves, salty ocean, shabby shutters, fossilized amber, spiced marmalade and candied apple. Next I attached a stencil to the inked background, and adhered it to my work surface. Using a Tim Holtz mini ink blending tool, I inked up the stencil using Fresh Ink in Paper White. Peel off the stencil and set it aside to dry, while working on the sentiment ring, starting with diecutting the beach scene die 5-6 times from regular cardstock, and layering them. On a piece of velllum, I embossed sentiments from Tropical Friends stamp set, and placed my stacked window die cuts on the vellum. Once the glue dried, I trimmed the vellum and adhered it on to my card front. If the pigment ink is still tacky, you can dry it off using a heat gun. As always, I added some jewels to finish the card.

Day 5 : Peacocks and Stripes with ink blending and water coloring

While cleaning and clearing I found lots and lots colored diecuts, so

To create this card, I used a previously colored image from Peacock Friends stamp set, using my zig real brush markers. The using the wide stripe stencil from Pretty Pink Posh, I inked up a piece of card stock using peacock feature and a make up brush. Then I cleaned the stencil, used is as a mask, and covered the blue stripes, leaving the white space open. After adhering it back to my work surface, I inked up the card front a second time using twisted citron to create the double color stripes. I cut down the ink panel, layering with with some foam tape and cut white card fronts. Before adhering the white layer I stamped and embossed a sentiment in gold to match the outline of the peacock. And as usual added a few jewels to finish off!
