1. Stamp the image with VersaFine on to Mixed Media paper. This paper holds water well, so since I used a water brush for parts of the image, I decided to use this brand. Color the image using the markers listed above. I used the water brush for blending out the shadows, and the stethoscope. Crop the image down and set aside.
2. Make a mat for the image using Ocean Side cardstock. Attach to the image using Zip Dry glue.
3. Create the card base out of a Chinese Red cardstock to the size of 5 1/2″ x 8.” Tape the Chevron stencil on top of the base and apply StazOn White Opaque using a sponge dauber. I use an old dauber that is just for StazOn, as it’s hard to clean up after using solvent ink on it. I didn’t want a perfectly stenciled image. I went for a softer look for this card.
4. Attach the image and mat to the card base using Zip Dry. Add a few dots on the lower left and upper right corners using Silver irRESISTable Pico Embellisher.
This was such a fun stamp to color. I really liked coloring the stethoscope. Now, since you’ve gotten down here, how about a chance to win this sweet Nurse Mouse stamp?
