Today over on the Stylin’ Stampin’ Inkspiration blog, we are sharing some quick and easy card ideas. This is one that I loved from my last Blendabilities technique class because it looks so cool and yet is so super easy to make!
I have no idea what to call this technique on the main sentiment – it always strikes me as a Neon Sign… should we call it the neon sign technique? Or is it a variation on the Chalkboard technique? Maybe I should call for a vote! Either way it is so easy to do.
Tips for making this card:
- Keep your card clean and simple with basic black and white cardstock and paper. This lets any colors you do add really POP off the page.
- To get the Neon Sign look for your sentiment or image, stamp your image with Versamark ink on black cardstock and heat emboss with white embossing powder. Color over your embossed areas with your favorite colors of blendabiliities markers.
- You don’t have to worry about being precise, since you are coloring on black cardstock, the ink won’t show!
- Coordinate your ribbon by coloring your ribbon with the same Blendabilities colors as well! In this case, I used the medium Melon Mambo marker to color the center section of my white ribbon!
Die cut out your images and adhere and you are good to go! Or use this technique on your card base for a beautiful background. The possibilities are endless.
And I do get the question, does the color rub off? Nope! Not if you let it dry before trying to rub and it doesn’t take very long to dry at all.
If you are in the Seattle area, join me for a blendabilities class focused on coloring on Oct 28th at 7pm at the Redmond Panera. It should be a fun night of learning and creating. RSVP here.
This is a super fun and easy technique, so give it a try and let me know how it goes for you!
