PSA and Twin Touch Markers Blog Hop

Hi everyone and welcome to today's blog hop, featuring stamps from PSA Essentials and markers from Twin Touch Markers!! We have a great hop lined up for you, full of delightful projects, and an opportunity for you to win a list of amazing prizes! You should have come here from Dina Kowl's blog. If not, then you may want to go back to the beginning of the hop by click on the Twin Touch Markers link above.

The prize package during this hop is for two PSA Essentials Peel & Stick stamp sets and 1 PSA Stamper (a $50 retail value) and six Twin Touch Markers (also a $50 retail value). The link to enter is at the bottom of the post.

And now for today's card! I'm already in love with PSA Essentials stamps (and these little girlie sets with the fun sayings are my favorite!) but had never tried Twin Touch Markers. I was so excited to receive a package from Twin Touch in the mail and ran straight to my studio to start playing! They were wonderful to color with and I had a lot of fun just doodling patterns with them and seeing how they blend. Overall, an A plus!

To highlight the use of the marker, I actually colored a piece of cardstock with the bold pink color. Once that was dry I used the colorless blender tool to make tiny dots all over the paper. (You can see the dots if you look closely) But then...I decided I really wanted to add some texture to the two pieces so I ran them through my Big Shot using a Sizzix embossing folder. And I loved the result! Because the paper had been so saturated with the maker color, the white core of the paper came through just a tiny bit from the embossing. It gave it a nice worn look, swoon. Then I decorated my card with some fun paper from Anna Griffin and Momenta. I also used the markers to color the PSA Essentials image. I hope you enjoy the card and now...you should head on over to Jennifer Holmes blog! But first, don't forget to enter the contest by clicking on the link at the end of the blog participants list. Enjoy!!
