Now, I saw THIS OTHER VIDEO by The Frugal Crafter in which she uses, of all things, Crayola markers to color her cards. When I first saw this video I thought this was not possible, after all, Crayola stuff is for, ehmm, kids.....but, having the inquiring mind that I have, always trying stuff at least once to see if it works, I said, what the heck, right? I need to see if this is for real so, I went into the kitchen to the drawer where I keep paper and pencils, crayons, markers, scissors, etc. for my youngest grandchildren when they are here and found a plastic bag with about 20 markers still in ok condition so, I took it to my craft room and well.....the result really surprised me. The markers were a bit dry but, since you have to spray the stamp with water, it really didn't matter to much, I did have to stamp the image 2 or 3 times, specially the leaves but, all things considered, this came out really nice.
Ok, the sentiment is from a Power Poppy set called Simply Camelias, here is a look at the inside of my card.
The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called "Tulips for Friends" and the bunch of Irises from another retired Flourishes set called "A Year of Flowers 2". I inked up this stamps with the same markers.
I'm submitting this card to the following challenges.
Time Out Challenge, CAS with the optional twist of PURPLE to wish Sandy a Happy Birthday.
Addicted to Stamps and More CAS challenge #194.
And the Freshly Made Sketches #273
Thank you for stopping by today, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
This are the retired stamps I used.
