Art Impressions - Monochromatic Coloring with Distress Marker

Hello AI fans!!

I'm on the Art Impressions blog today with a card featuring one of the new Clear Christmas Stamps, Merriest Christmas! I did some monochromatic coloring and used some gorgeous gold washi tape for the background.

The washi tape so gorgeous, it looks like a rich gold tapestry! I added four strips of the washi tape, leaving space between each one, allowing the black card base to show through. Next, I stamped the snowman couple on some water color card stock.

To color the image I went with a monochromatic look and used the Vintage Photo Distress  Marker. I didn't color it with typical strokes, instead patting the paint brush on the image. Squiggle the marker on a palette, add a little water to lighten the color. As I colored the image I used less and less water to get darker tones.

When my coloring was done I used sharp scissors to fussy cut the image out. For the vellum piece behind the image, I found it in my leftovers stash. I stamped the sentiment on the vellum and then adhered it to the card. Then I added the image with foam tape and last adhered a few black enamel dots.
