Split Coloring Cards

Hello everyone!! Today I am sharing four cards that I created using Jennifer McGuire's "Split Coloring" technique. When I saw this video I knew I had to try it. Making two cards out of one? Yes please!!

I created these cards a couple weeks ago but just never got around to posting them.

I actually pulled out some stamps that I have not used for both of these cards. The first one I used WPlus9's "Beautiful Bouquet: Dahlia" stamp set. Jennifer showed cards done landscape style but I did not have the beautiful stamp set she used so I made my first two cards portrait length.

I colored the blooms in with Copic Markers and used Stampin Up! "Coastal Cabana" (retired) card stock as the opposite panel to stamp in a similar colored ink.

The sentiment used on this card is from My Favorite Things "Deepest Sympathy" stamp set.

I highlighted the flower with a little Copic Opaque White and a paint brush.

This sentiment is from Altenew's "Beautiful Quotes" stamp set and is one of my favorite sentiment sets as of late.

I love the embossed gold with the card stock color too!!

My second two cards, I used Altenew's "Beautiful Day" stamp set and my MISTI to create a flower display landscape style. This was kind of a pain because I had to do a ton of masking. However, it was all worth it!!

I actually created the tag from this post AFTER I created these. I figured I would make a few more to give away as a set.

I chose to use the same color of card stock as the first set, as well as the same sentiments.

I did color the main flowers in a different color but chose to color the accent flowers in similar colors as the accent colors in my first two cards.

This was not only FUN to make but I got to practice my shading on the big flower. There are so many layers to it that it looks so cool in real life!!

I chose to use the same sentiments as the first cards to make it a bit easier on myself. It seems that I can never have too many sympathy cards in my stash. I guess that is the age I am at.

Well, that is all for today. I thank you for stopping by and taking a look. Have a FABULOUS day!
