My first post for MarkerPOP!

Thursday, July 7, 2016

Hello there! I'm here today sharing my first project as a new DT member for MarkerPOP! I'm very excited to be a part of MarkerPOP and feel so blessed to have the opportunity to share my projects with you and work alongside amazing artists! My first card features the Botanical Garden stamp set from Altenew, and the Hero Arts stamp set, Just For You by Lia Griffith.

I started off by ink blending Citrus Twist Distress Ink with a Tim Holtz Mini Stencil at the bottom of the Neenah Solar White card base. Then the sentiment and grey dots were stamped right along the edge of the stenciled pattern using Fawndamentals Ink Pad-Hippo. Next, a Pretty Pink Posh tag (Stitched Essentials 1) was die cut with Tim Holtz Watercolor Card Stock and Black Card Stock. I heat embossed a black flower from the Botanical Garden set. Then the fun part! Using a Wilted Violet Distress Marker, I colored the flower slightly at the base of the petals, then used a water brush to move the ink and color the rest of the petal. The leaves were colored using Citrus Twist Distress Ink. Some twine was added to the tags, and then mounted to the card base with Foam Tape.

The top right corner of the card base was punched using a corner rounder punch. To finish it all off, a few Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Sequins add some sparkle and shine!

Thank you so much for checking out my post today. :D  I look forward to sharing more with you!
