Hey there! First I'm sharing the card we made at OnStage last November with Dragonfly Dreams and Inside the Lines Designer Paper:
We cut a piece of Inside the Lines with a paper cutter and colored with Watercolor Pencils.
We stapled Basic Black Solid Baker's Twine to the strip, tied a bow, and adhered to 5/8" Burlap Ribbon. "Thanks", omitted from the sentiment by inking with a Basic Black marker, provided the greeting.
For my experiment card I colored Inside the Lines Designer Paper with Melon Mambo, Old Olive, and Daffodil Delight Watercolor Pencils, then smoothed with a Blender Pen.
My experiment came about after I colored the vellum-cut dragonfly with a Melon Mambo Stampin' Write Marker. The marker ink takes a long time to dry, so I sprinkled with Dazzling Diamonds Glitter.
I consider this a failed experiment because:
- As the marker ink dried, the glitter is started flaking off.
- The glitter prevented the Rhinestone from sticking well.
Glitter won't stick to marker (or any water-based dye) ink.
This is one of many things that's great about stamping: you can play with ideas; some work fantastically, and some don't, but it's ALL FUN!
