Go Crazy, Stamp in Purple

The first Copic coloring twist doesn’t necessarily help with blending, but it sure is fun! Typically, I stamp in Copic safe black in on Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80lb cardstock.

But, sometimes you’ve got to add a twist and shake things up. I knew the pineapple would be yellow, orange, and brown, so I stamped the image in purple dye ink on a 5×7 piece of Curious Metallic Cryogen White.

Because hey, complementary colors look great together and who doesn’t love a bit of sparkle?

Now, what do you do when you don’t have the perfect purple ink? Well, you custom mix it of course. First, I stamped Aloha Pineapple with Altenew Cosmic Berry Crisp Dye Ink. This was super vibrant and I needed to tone reign that in.

Fortunately, the stamp was loaded in my MISTI, so I inked it with Altenew Grapevine Crisp Dye Ink. Before stamping, I rubbed a bit of ink off the stamp for a two-toned look.

Don’t Blend, Color Adjacent

Large stamps are my favorite and Aloha Pineapple is bigger than my hand y’all. In order to speed up the coloring on this Big & Bold stamp, I scribbled colors adjacent to each other rather than blending the body of the pineapple. See video for details!

Finishing Touches

This card started as 5 x 7-inch Cryogen White panel. That felt too wide. So I trimmed it to 3.5 x 7-inches to create a mini slimline or a shorty.

Don’t bother trying to match cardstock to your project, make your own colored sentiment strip. Here I colored G29 at the bottom, then G07, and finally YG03 at the top. White heat emboss the sentiment and pop it up with foam tape.

  1. Hi Amber! I just wanted to thank you for sharing your process. I got my stamp set yesterday and couldn’t wait to give it a try. Stamp in purples, WHAT??? I honestly would have been afraid to use some of these bold colors, BUT, I did and absolutely had a blast coloring. I love the way my card turned out. You may have just broken down a wall for me.

  2. Julie Wexler says:

    The purple outline with the rest of the colors is a definite winner, Amber! I so appreciate your leaving in the color swatching as your project develops; it’s gratifying to see someone of your talents re-thinking what’s needed, and noodling on when to stop. Thanks so much!

    I watched the section twice to be sure that you said that the outline was in the purple inks. I didn’t know you could match those inks with the alcohol markers. Thanks for the introduction to the papers. I have now been able to order some to try out.
