Hi friends! Today I’m sharing this fun and simple card using Crayola markers!
I love colouring with my alcohol markers – and I make many cards using them – but I wanted to try something a little different. I got a pack of 50 Crayola markers from Amazon and thought it would be a nice challenge to figure out a card design using them!
Since Crayola markers are a water-based medium, I wanted to use this to my advantage. After looking through my supplies, I started experimenting with colouring the markers on stamps and embossing folders. After finding the “be the rainbow” sentiment from the Good Vibes #3 stamp set designed by Pete Hughes from Sizzix, I had a better idea of the card I wanted to make.
I then started looking through my embossing folders. After experimenting with several different folders – and how I would use the markers with the folders – I decided on the Swiss Cheese embossing folder also from Sizzix (delicious)!
After colouring the stamp with five different markers to make up the rainbow and stamping it on basic white cardstock, I then coloured the embossing folder.
Using the same five colours, I coloured in the grooves of the folder and then sprayed it with water. I ran it through my Sizzix Big Shot with another piece of white cardstock and LOVED how it turned out.
I then decided to add some black cardstock behind the sentiment and the embossed piece of cardstock to add some contrast and help it stand out.
Finally, I glued everything down onto an A7 card base.
I love the finished card! While with some cards, I have a clear image in mind of how I want to make it and with what supplies, this card came together as I was making it, which was really fun to go with the flow!
Thanks for reading and catch you next time!
