I started off by stamping the adorable skull image with some Gray Flannel Memento ink, black was just too bold. I wish I'd had a lighter gray. This ink will NOT bleed with my Copic markers. I randomly stamped turning my image in different angles, even upside down.
I grabbed one of the lightest Green and lighter Yellow markers I had, G0000 & Y000. I don't want the color too pale, but I don't want it to take away from Nutmeg so these were the perfect shades! I just layered my coloring until it was the shade I wanted.
When I put all of the layers together, this is how it looks... LOVE it!! Pale enough so the card isn't to busy but not as plain as solid cardstock :)
The next method goes all the way back to my beginning stamping days when I was just starting out and didn't have lots of supplies. Let's break out the VersaMark!
Again, I stamped the skull randomly and in various directions.
And now here's all of the layers put together! I LOVE the way Nutmeg just POPS on this one :) Both of these designs are VERY basic and you can certainly do as much as you want on them, or as little as I did. Well now you have the "meat and potatoes" for 2 cards... time to add some dessert (ribbons, and hardware and pretties oh my!).
Thanks so much for popping by to check out my post! I'll see you back here on Friday for my Anything But a Card post! TTFN ;)
