Creative Coloring

Another class down and one of my favorites. Creative Coloring with Erum – Advanced Techniques. Erum is such a wonderful artist, and her gift of coloring is very evident in this class. Some people just have the gift of inspiring others. I decided to try one of her techniques of stamping layers and then using markers over that to add a little more to the overall look.

I started by using the Altenew Trellis Stencil and Sea Glass Ink for the background. I cut it down to 4-1/4″ x 5-1/2″.

I then started working on layering the flower starting with the lightest ink first. I created a mask for the first flower and created the 2nd flower over it using the same colors as before. I then used the Artist Markers and did some flicks with the colors extending the original layers out a little. I cut this panel down and adhered it to the trellis backing.

I then used a little washi tape to create some lines. I stamped the sentiment and heat embossed. Lastly, added a few crystals and adhered to a white card.

Supplies for this were:
Altenew Perennial Beauty Stamp and Die
Altenew Trellis Stencil
Altenew Ink and Artist Markers, Sea Glass, Ocean Waves, Dusk, and Desert Night
Obsidian Ink and Embossing Powder

I like how this turned out and will definitely practice with this again.

I hope you enjoy!

  1. Take a bit of chance and add a few more flicks and details 🙂 I see that you are holding yourself back a little. Maybe you can try on a spare piece of cardstock and you will see your floral images transform! Love the colors you have used and thank you for such wonderful words.
