EASY MARKER COLORING – You’re a Gem Card with Neat & Tangled Stamps

Happy Wednesday, all! Today I played with the You’re a Gem stamp set from Neat & Tangled to create a one-layer card. I did very simple coloring with Tombow Markers as well.

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

I stamped the greeting in the center of the card using VersaFine Onyx Black ink first, and then stamped different shaped of gems. The gems are radiating from the center of the card.

The gems were colored using three different color schemes, each with 3 shades of markers: light, medium, and dark. To make the gems look like they are reflecting light, use the lightest shade on the main center area of the gem. I didn’t do this with the red gems. You can see the difference between the red, blue, and green.

To finish off the gems I coated them with Nuvo Crystal Glaze. Compared to Ranger Glossy Accents, I think the finished surface of Nuvo Crystal Glaze isn’t as pristine and smooth. However, I still like how it turned out. :)

Thanks for stopping by today!
