Studio Katia December Release Blog Hop + Giveaway


Hello everyone! It’s finally time for a new Studio Katia release, and today we are celebrating with a fun blog hop with lots of possibilities for you to win along the way! 



I will give you all the details at the end of this post - for now let’s have a look at today’s card! 
It was really hard to pick a stamp set from the new release for this project...they are all so fabulous! In the end I decided to go for the Blooming Bunch set, and to color it using my Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.


I cut my card base out of some Strathmore Bristol Smooth cardstock using one of the dies in the Darling Ribbon and Dotted Frames set. I then stamped the floral image and the sentiment with Versafine ink in Onyx black, and heat embossed it using clear embossing powder. I colored the images with my Zig markers, using miltiple layers to achieve a higher depth of color. The raised edges of the embossed lines help a lot in keeping the pigments confined to the respective areas, and prevent bleeding. For some finishing touches I added some sparkle to the flowers with my Spectrum Noir clear overlay pen and diluted some Distress Ink in Black Soot to add a few black splashes around the card base.



And that finished off my card.
As I mentioned above, this post is part of a blog hop in celebration of the new Studio Katia's release!
