Glad There is You

Hi there!  Hey, guess what?  I'm glad there is you!  I'm glad that I have a few of you out there who are still reading my blog...after...maybe six years.  Goodness, I can't believe it's been that long!  And I'm not even that funny or interesting! LOL!  And I'm glad that I have an opportunity to share what I create with a great group of crafting ladies (and a few men...hello Tim, you fabulous crafter you) and an opportunity to help promote amazing companies!  Humm...I'm feeling pretty darn grateful tonight.

So would you like to hear me stop gushing and start talking about today's card?  This is a card that I created for a recent Wholly Scrap! class where we created with the new Distress Markers (have to share that I'm loving them).  I kept the layout of this card simple, only using a few pieces of designer paper, so we could focus on coloring this beautiful floral image from Hero Arts.  For this technique, we used the markers to scribble on a craft sheet and then used a watercolor brush to pick up the color and fill in the image.  I started with a lighter color and added darker (sometimes using a heat gun to dry the paper in between).  I did use watercolor paper with this technique as it holds up better then regular cardstock.  And then there's the darling sentiment, from the Together Silhouettes set from Sweet 'n Sassy.

Enjoy!

Lovely card Kim. The coloring is awesome. I might have to put my hands on some of the markers! WOW! 6 years... hope to see another 6 at least!
