Springtime


This was a fun card to make!  Coloring  directly on a stamp with marker and spritzing with water can get such a varied look, you just never know what your end result will look like. I used my Tim Holtz distress markers and was happy with the result. My background is Amuse cardstock, I used a piece of MME patterned paper, scrap black cardstock, some Washi tape and a butterfly brad from my stash! The floral stamps is Paper Inspirations and I have had it for a good 10 years, a classic!

Wow, I really like that stamp, Donna! It reminds me of one of my older classics, which I should really dig out again, seeing how beautiful yours is. And I used to enjoy this technique with mine too, only with my Tombow watercolour markers. Beautiful card!

Great job on the technique! I think this one could do well for a masculine card too with the fall colors. Thanks for your kind comment on my blog! I treasure both you and Shirley's consistent comments/visits to my blog! Take care!
