Hello crafters! Today I made a card where I challenged myself to only use one image, but repeatedly, to create a CAS (clean and simple) design. The party stamp set by Whimsy Stamps was perfect for this and the little cocktail umbrellas just screamed to be colored in rainbow colors!
As you can see, the magic of this card mainly lies in me going back after being almost done with the coloring and adding some darker shades. This increases the contrast and makes the umbrellas look much more realistic. At least I like high-contrast coloring, so this appeals to me.
Since I felt that using just the umbrellas wasn’t enough, I added dots with my Copic markers, using the same colors as I used on the umbrellas, and then added Stardust dots into the bigger colorful circles, and then sprinkled some 3mm Sparkling Clear sequins into the mix.
