Sandra Kuck Sisters - 3 Ways
I totally love this now retired Sandra Kuck Sisters image by Cornish Heritage Farms. I can get so many different looks just by changing how I'm coloring it.
For the particular card, I stamped the image with pallet noir on white cardstock, let it dry completely, and colored with prismacolor markers before layering.
Once I was done layering, I added some fabric bridal seashell confetti I had found at Michael's last year making sure to double layer the shells and securing them with a jeweled brad. The saying is from Cornish Heritage Farms Mona Lisa Moments and is also stamped in pallet noir.
Overall the card is pretty much kept clean and simple, with no background stamping.
For the second image using the Sisters stamp, I once again stamped it with pallet noir but this time used vanilla cardstock. In order to achieve a softer look this time, I decided to try coloring with plain old colored pencils and boy did they NOT disappoint!
To keep everything tied together, I dug out some pink parchment cardstock to layer with and some lavender mulberry paper from my stash before adding an embossed prima with a gem center and some silver brads.
Now for the third way to color the Sisters image, I stamped it in pallet noir on watercolor paper. Pulling out my Stampin Up! Watercolor Wonder Crayons and aquapainter brush, I started watercoloring to my hearts delight again keeping the tone as soft as possible before layering.
Pulling out my pink parchment paper again, I sponged rose ink around the edges of the card before adding fibers and square page pebbles as embellies.
