Glitter Queens Blog Hop

Yesterday I made this card with the colored mats flip-flopped, and today I used markers to color the image instead of watercolor crayons. I used the brush end of the marker and colored the stamp. Then I lightly misted with water and stamped. I love the rich colors this technique "leaves" behind. LOL...get it? LEAVES behind?

I used:
Paper: Very Vanilla CS #101650, Cajun Craze CS #119684, More Mustard CS #100946
Stamps: French Foliage #121166, Fabulous Phrases #120501
Ink: More Mustard #100076, Always Artichoke #105113, Early Espresso #119680, Cajun Craze #119678
Other: Modern Label Punch #119849, Word Window Punch #119857, Seam Binding Ribbon #120999, Antique Brads #117273, Glue Dots #103683, Basic Pearls #119247
