I've never tried the watercoloring with markers technique until now. Actually, I think I tried it once before but not with watercolor paper so it didn't work how I wanted it to. My Stampin' Up! order containing my first pack of watercolor paper arrived a few days ago. I don't know what I was thinking but I assumed Stampin' Up! watercolor paper wasn't anything like normal watercolor paper. It's JUST like normal watercolor paper (which I have plenty of BTW), but sturdier and pre-cut. LOL I'm such a dork sometimes :O)
So, I decided to use my brand new Morning Soft stamp for my first stab at watercoloring with markers. I love this stamp! I cannot believe I waited so long to buy it...I kept putting it off but just couldn't resist anymore. I used Ruby Red and Cameo Coral for the flowers and Old Olive and Mellow Moss for the stems and leaves. I created a very faint shadow with Blush Blossom. Unfortunately, I didn't have enough Old Olive cardstock to finish my card so I relied on Always Artichoke to compliment the Cameo Coral cardstock instead. I think it looks okay though :O)
Oh, and I just realized that this was ALMOST a Stampin' Up! only card...but the ribbon is from Michaels :( I was so close! LOL I suppose you could substitute it for SU! ribbon...
Thanks for stopping by :O) Hope your week has been wonderful so far. One more day for me until the weekend! Enjoy your Easter Sunday ♥
