Easy Coloured Window Card – Bloomin’ Wellies | Video Tutorial by Jeni

posted in: Blog, Jeni 0

Hi, normally I find clean and simple cards difficult. I always want to add extras and use lots of involved techniques. But lately, I’ve enjoyed keeping my card making easy and simple.  Today’s video tutorial uses Bloomin Wellies stamp and dies by Catherine Pooler Designs for window cards.  Watch the video tutorial below or over on YouTube, and read on for the written tutorial.

BASIC COLOURING

 

The colour is very basic – no stressing over shading. First, colour the wellies with the lighter colour, next add a strip of the darker colour along the side of each welly.

Copic Colours

Blue wellies – B05, B18

Green wellies – YG21, YG13

Leaves – G17, YG03, YG17, YG13, YG99, G12

Yellow flowers – Y13, Y35, Y38

Purple flowers – BV13, V12

 

WINDOW APERTURE

  • Die cut the wellies die from the front of a card base
  • Stamp the border stamp on the inside and outside of the card base – Chiffon ink for the blue wellies. Likewise, use Over Coffee ink for the border on the card with the green wellies.

  • Adhere the additional flowers to appear as they have fallen from the wellies for a natural look. 
  • Stamp the sentiments from the same stamp set.  Midnight ink for the blue card and Serenade ink for the green card.

 

Serenade ink matches the BV13 colouring, and the T in ‘heart’ fits nicely under the point of the leaf.

 

These cards were fun to make with simple colouring. It has been a while since I made a window or aperture card, and it was inspiring to go back to an older card idea.
