Hello and welcome back to the second day of the CAS-ual Fridays January release countdown and today I am featuring a new die: the Tag Buddies dies are actually a set of three, and I’m using the smallest one today in a way that you might not completely expect 🙂
I diecut the shape from a piece of water color card stock and then drew in a few lines with a pencil. They helped me than I eventually added color with my new watercolor markers by ZIG (Art & Graphic Twin Markers). I actually worked in several layers to gradually build up the color until I had a level that I felt comfortable with.
You know me, I couldn’t help but add a few black dots and also a few dots with my Stardust gel pen. I mounted the shape with some foam tape onto my black card to base, and then added a few additional accents with my white, gold, and Stardust gel markers.
I stamped the sentiment with white pigment ink and then I used my white gel pen to color it in. While white pigment ink already contrasts nicely against the black card, adding white gel pen on top of it just gives it an entirely new vibrancy.
Thanks for stopping by today! The new product that will be available from CAS-ual Fridays and Simon Says Stamp tomorrow, January 6!
