Pretty Poppy


I got a box in the mail yesterday from the Stamp Simply Ribbon Store with a VERY special Valentine's gift from DH... Distress Markers!!  Of course I had to play with them right away!!!  Our Daily Bread Designs had a challenge to CASE a designer that you admired, so I looked for a card I could CASE that I could use my markers to color... you see how my mind works?? : )  A designer's work that I just love is Korin Sutherland, and I found the perfect card to CASE!!  Here it is...


I pulled out two ODBD sets from Stamp Simply - Mother's Day and Grow in Grace, and got to work.  First I cut out my panel from Ranger Watercolor Paper, then I stamped the Poppy with Versafine Onyx Ink and let it dry.  I watercolored it using the Distress Markers and a small paintbrush, then doodled the edges and embellished it lightly.

I'm sure you'll be seeing a LOT of the distress markers around here over the next few months.  I love the assortment of on trend colors and how easy it is to color larger images without using up an entire Copic marker!!

Here's your Stamp Simply shopping list...



Thanks for stopping by!
