This past weekend a very dear friend’s daughter, Paulina, celebrated her Quinceanera. I wanted to make her a very special card for her birthday using Spectrum Noir alcohol markers, because I, my daughter and son, and my friend, Cheyenne, bought her 84 Spectrum Noir markers. Woo Hoo! I know she will make some incredible art projects using her markers.
I thought the Fun Stampers Journey Media Artist girl was the perfect stamp to create a card for Paulina. I stamped the image on SU! Whisper White cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is the best cardstock I’ve found for coloring with alcohol markers. It took me about two hours to complete the coloring. To get a smooth finish, you have to take your time and work coloring small areas at a time. I tried to video tape the process, but the battery gave out before I was finished.
Lest any of you think I just throw together cards with no mess ups or problems. I had to pull this card apart about five times before I was satisfied with how the card looked. I decided about the fourth go round to make a shaker card, and I think this was a great choice. Here is the first picture before I stamped the flowers onto the card.
After I took this picture, I decided to stamp the flowers that is part of the FSJ Media Artist girl stamp set onto the card using SU! Midnight Muse. Here is the final card.
I absolutely love this card and I hope you do too!
