Many years ago, we noticed that there were not many African American greetings cards on the market and even LESS stamps that allowed crafters to create their own. We are proud that we were one of the first rubber stamp companies to make multicultural images and greetings because we truly do believe in not just equality for everyone, but equality in crafting as well!
In observance of the Juneteenth holiday, Rubbernecker Stamps wants to take this opportunity to celebrate Black history and culture with an absolutely STUNNING project.
Today, we are sharing a video tutorial from our designer Preeti Chandran who is going to take you through the steps for creating this bold and colorful card – celebrating all the beauty in this world.
The tutorial is broken down into two parts, the first focusing on the copic coloring of our main image “Jimanekia”, and the second focusing on the colorful details for the rest of the card.
And today especially, we are loving this scripture from 1 John 3:18, “Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth”. Rubbernecker is committed to loving through our actions, through our service and through our craft!
We hope you guys enjoy todays tutorial. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel and never miss a video!
We would LOVE to see and share any designs YOU have made that celebrate any ethnicity so we can celebrate everyone. There are not many African American greeting cards out there, nor cards that feature BIPOC images, and we are setting out to change that! Let’s celebrate together!
