Quick & Easy Inking (with video) + Cardset in a Box

Hello my dear friends! Last night I was playing around with my Hero Arts stamps and accidentially found a quick & easy way to color bold images. It was late at night, but I got out the camera and made a video about this technique. First, the project. I created a box and a matching cardset:

I made the box from a sheet of patterned paper from Pink Paislee's Parisian Anthology collection using my template from the Floral For You Box from the Paper Crafts 350 Cards & Gifts issue. You can find this pattern, along with many other great patterns, here.
I stamped and heat embossed the wildflowers with white embossing powder on Soft Stone cardstock. The butterfly is colored using copics:

And here are the cards, using the fun technique:

Another little gift idea for christmas. Ok, now comes the video:

I hope you like it!

Have a beautiful day and thanks for visiting!

Hugs and Love,

Cardstock: Papertrey Ink
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee
Stamps: Hero Arts
Ink: Tsukineko
Markers: Tombow, Copic
Rhinestones: Kaisercraft
Other: ribbon
