You Are One Of A Kind Splatters Card

Rainbow splatters here today!

For this week's project on the Heffy Doodle blog I wanted to try something new so I decided to mix Copic Markers and colored pencils and I thought that the Messy Desk stencil would have been perfect to color with this technique!

I really like how colored pencils look on kraft cardstock and that's why I decided to use it as my card base. I took a sheet of Clairefontaine Paint On Naturel Cardstock, then I used a fine tip pencil to lightly trace the medium and the small splatters from the Messy Desk stencil. After that, I stamped the paintbrush from the Pandtastic Painters set with Memento Rich Cocoa ink; I masked it with Heffy Memo Tape and then stamped the fairy from Absotoothly Awesome stamp set.

I erased the splatters part that were behind the stamped images, then I colored everything with Copic Markers and added more depth with Castle Arts Premium Soft Touch Colored Pencils. I really like the way they can be used to define the shadows, especially when I use a cardstock like this that wasn't meant for Copic markers and tend to absorb a lot of ink. I'm far from an expert about using colored pencils and the result wasn't perfect but white highlights can really work miracles to cover the worst parts! ^__^

When I was done coloring, I used one of the Imperial Stitched Rectangle to die cut the panel and then stamped the "You are one of a kind" sentiment from Fluffy Puffy Unicorns using the Misti tool. Right after doing it, I saw that beautiful "stroke" on the stencil and I decided it was perfect to be the phrase background.. so I used a fine tip pencil to trace the sides of the stroke and I hand draw a little portion in the middle for making it wider than the sentiment. While I was coloring it, I also ended up adding some little splatters here and there in the upper part of the card. Once I was done, I restamped the sentiment using Versamark ink and heat embossed it with Ranger White Embossing Powder.

I added highlights with a white gel pen, then I trimmed a card base slightly larger than the stitched rectangle and I used Copic V10s markers on the front edges to create a violet ombre effect. I used foam tape to attach the colored panel to the card base and I finally glued some tiny clear iridescent stars sequins to give the card a little extra sparkle.

I hope you enjoyed my card and see you in two weeks with another Color Me Happy project!

I'm using this card for entering the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge and the Simon Says IG Challenge "Use a Stencil".

Happy crafting.
