The first stamp set I wanted to color with my new SU Blendabilites alcohol markers was SU Pleasant Poppies. However, I just got around to it today! And, again, I did not do any “blending” just pure coloring inside the black lines. Oh, I do love these markers! I love how the alcohol color is transparent and shows all the detail and lines on a stamped image. I will get around blending but for now I am enjoying the coloring bliss:) I used Cindy Hall’s neat challenge at Freshly Made Sketches #141 for inspiration.
I changed it up a bit and did an A2 card instead of a square one. And, guess what? I am going to give you my measurements to save you the trouble of figuring them out. If you are stamping an image you would like to divide into pieces, you can follow this: I stamped my image on a 5″ x 3 3/4″ piece of card stock. I then cut one inch of each of the sides to make the four corner squares 1″ x 1″. Make sure you cut from each side in one inch. (Not one inch then another inch from that same edge.) Then you end up with the center top and bottom rectangles being 3″ x 1″. The center rectangle ends up being 3″ x 1 3/4″.
If you want to use Designer Paper, just cut them the above sizes and place them on your card front. There is a 1/8″ inch border around and between the cut portions. I used my grid paper to help me keep the 1/8″ border as straight as possible.
