Pixel Coloring - Jar of Love

Here’s a fun technique for you to try, I call it Pixel Coloring.  To start you will need to use card stock with a grid design. For my projects I found a variety of options in the Memories & More Perfect Day Kit.  However, there are other kits in the Stampin’ Up! line that have grid lines as well.

Once you’ve found your grid design choose a stamp that has more outline than solid in the design.  I chose the Jar of Love stamp, with Sheltering Tree and Perennial Birthday for the different sentiments.

This video will show the basic steps on how I created these cards.

When I completed my original design, I inked the entire pixel piece with VersaMark ink then embossed using Clear Embossing Powder.  This created a glassy effect over the design and the colors became richer and darker.

For the video card, I wanted a softer feel and did not emboss over the design.  I like that just a small change can make such a difference in the final project.
