Try Stampin' on Tuesday #571

Hello friends! Today at Try Stampin' on Tuesday's Challenge #571 we have another sketch to share with you, with a suggested theme of clean and simple. This is not my preferred style of card, but I love how this card turned out. I also decided to use this sketch as a part of my "homework" for Altenew's Educator Certification Program's Magical Marker Techniques class.

Supplies used:


This card was my first use of alcohol markers. I used some transparent Yupo paper for the center strip because I didn't have glossy paper, and while it wasn't a perfect medium for the alcohol markers, I love how you can see the die cut panel behind it. I colored the transparent Yupo paper with Altenew's Shades of Purple Artist Alcohol Markers set through Altenew's Feathered Leaves stencil, starting with the fine tip of the two darker markers to color the edges of each of the cut parts of the stencil, and then blending over the whole of each cut parts of the stencil with the wider brush tip with one of the lighter colors. I used a bunch of different color combinations for each of the different leaves in the stencil. After everything had dried, I decided to splatter some purple and gold watercolor from the Gansai Tambi Gem Colors watercolor set. After everything dried, I trimmed the Yupo paper to match the strip on the sketch. 

The white background was created by die cutting a piece of watercolor paper with the largest die from Gina K Design's Master Layout 2 die set and then the die cut was run through my die cutting machine with the Simon Says Stamp's Detail Swirls Plate wafer die. The panel was splattered with purple and gold watercolor from Gansai Tambi Gem Colors watercolor set. 

The sentiment was created using Simon Says Stamp's Bold Thanks wafer die to die cut a piece of Stonehenge black watercolor paper and then added a light layer of gold watercolor from the Gem Colors watercolor set. The sentiment was glued onto the yupo paper as well as was some purple and white sequins from Simon Says Stamps Lilac Blooms sequin mix and black sequins from Gina K's Galaxy Sequins embellishment mix. I added glue onto the yupo paper behind the sequins and sentiment and then glued the yupo paper onto the watercolor panel to mimic the sketch.

Finally, the whole panel was glued onto an A2-sized sparkly purple card base.

We hope you are able to join us this week on Try Stampin' on Tuesday. Thanks for reading!


  1. Anna, congratulations on stepping into the alcohol ink creative domain! Love the colors you chose, and how you used them with a stencil... I've never tried that! I like your die cut background, too! -Donna
