Sketch 1- Colorful Birthday Card




As I said before Sketch 1, is an easy peasy sketch.

I made this card in two versions.  One with dye ink on white cardstock and one with pigment ink on black cardstock using the Mama Elephant Make a Wish stamp set.

This is also a good example when I should stop instead of messing with it some more.

This could have easily been done with watercolors and a brush.  I do like this stamp set, it lets me think I have control.  Since watercolors are had to control.

I hope you give this a try.  If there is a technique you want me to create a video for, please leave a comment below.

  1. Great video Iliana!
    I liked the additional purple because it gave you the indigo in a true rainbow order! TFS

  2. Hi Iliana, have you ever tried stamping in white pigment ink on dark cardstock before applying the other colors, to enhance them?

    Thanks for your inspiring videos!

  3. Hi Iliana, Dani again. Just wanted to let you know that I just tried stamping a background in white pigment ink and then stamping on it again with colored dye inks: it works like a charm!

    I stamped four times using Papertrey Fresh Snow ink, heat set the background and then used different papertrey dye ink colors. I stamped the colors only one time and they came up pretty vibrant, but I bet one more color stamping on top would be just perfect!

    This is just for you, you can delete this comment...

  6. Awesome cards and one technique I usually do with just my markers most of the time. I don't have a stamp set that does the background for me. I love the bold colors and big sentiment you used too!

  10. hi, I really like how both cards came out. I use my MISTI with every card I make. And I hardly ever make multiples.

  11. I always enjoy your video.....I am glad I saw what you did to get color on the black card stock. I don't know if I would have figured that out. I rarely use black to stamp on, but it looks pretty cool. I am going to get some black paper out and play!! Thanks for your video!
