Video Series: One Stamp, Four Ways – Card #3

One Stamp Four Ways

CLICK HERE to list all videos in this series.

Welcome to card #3 in my Burst of Blooms series! In the first two cards, I stamped this image once on the card. For today’s card I repeated the stamp to create a background. It was actually my first idea for this stamp – to cover the cardstock with the stamp and color them with Copic markers:

One Stamp Four Ways

In the video, I colored half of the card with the gray shadows and paused so you could compare. Here is the image:

Personally, I like the added pop of the gray shadows. Here is a close-up of the coloring:

I will admit that this card is for someone super-special, as it took a lot of time and patience to color. A great project to do while watching TV. 🙂

Enjoy the video and have a great weekend!

    Wow, Darlene, this is a real beauty. I can appreciate the time and effort it took you to achieve such a masterpiece. I’m going to attempt it soon since my stamp set has just arrived. I haven’t done much flicking with Copics so this will give me a lot of practice. Thanks so much for sharing this really outstanding card.

    I love the colors you chose, Darlene! And adding the grey shadows really helps give a dimensional look. Otherwise, it just reminds me of very vibrant wallpaper! LOL I also like how you matted the greeting block with white on the top & bottom. I generally mat either on all 4 sides or not at all. I may have to try this look. Thanks so much for the inspiration, and have a great weekend yourself! 🙂 ~ Andrea

    Lovely card. Great tutorial for copic coloring. I know you say it over and over when you use your copics, but I appreciate the reinforcement. Like the shadowing. I thought it very adventurous to start shadowing with a C4, but the blending made it just right. Thanks.

    I could watch you color all day long! I prefer no shadow, but both are nice. I will watch this video again when I try this technique. I don’t have this stamp but I am sure I can find something to use!😎

    My first reaction is “how are you going to top this card” with card No. 4. It is absolutely gorgeous. Love everything about it. I’m kind of glad I don’t have this stamp as I’m not that good with copics but I will use the same colours and technique with large flowers in my Adult colouring book using my coloured pencils. Thanks Darlene

    Argghh!! I Missed this video Darlene, 🙁 This is gorgeous, such vibrant colors, love it!!!
    I don’t do Copics but I think I can attempt this look with my Prismacolor pencils.
    Thank you for sharing this awesome video.
