Block Stamping and Color Blocking Many Thanks

Block Stamping and Color Blocking Many Thanks
Made this card for my Copic markers buyers who uses Copic markers in their arts.

Sketchbook Saturday - Challenge #103
I adopt the sketch from Sketchbook Saturday - Challenge #103 as shown above. I was inspired by The Friday Mashup Challenge - FM123 - Blocked by Color whereby you are challenged to create a project using "clear block stamping" or "color-blocking" or combine both. I been seeing some projects on "clear block stamping" and "color-blocking" but never really tried before. But for this card, I really want to try both of the techniques as the sketch is just perfect for it! The colors are inspired by CAS-ual Fridays CFC112 - Aqua, Green and Orange.

Close-up : Different outcomes from one same technique
The green distress ink is inked directly onto the rectangular stamp block and stamped onto the white card stock vertically as in the sketch. The same color is stamped on the bottom of the white card stock. Then, follow by the orange and blue distress inks. Due to the size of the card stock, the blue strips distress ink are overlapped which created another amazing effect! I created three (3) copies of these and each of them is different and unique and I just love the outcomes!


Close-up : Stamped branch with gems
A branch image is stamped at the bottom of the "color-blocking" panel in black ink as in the sketch. It is then attached onto a purple card base.


Close-up : Popped-up banner
The sentiment is stamped onto a yellow die cut banner and popped up using pop-dots. The card is finished off with some white gems added to the branch.

Dimension : 10.16cm x 15.24cm or 4" x 6"
