Happy Friday! Today is my day to share and I’m thrilled to show you what I created using Posh Posies and Distress markers. I love this image, isn’t it beautiful? It’s gorgeous as a silhouette and as you can see, works well colored too.
I don’t use my Distress markers nearly enough (for shame!) and so I used them for today’s card. I colored directly on to the stamp, misted it with Ink Potion #9, and stamped it onto Choice Watercolor paper. I repeated this step without misting it this time and stamped it on top of my image. This gave my flower the definition it needed for me to see where my lines were. My last step was to use a darker color to accent the image directly on my stamped image.
The background is Musical Swirls Impression Plate and I used chalk ink to make the impression stand out. I love the look of this plate and the subtle detailing.
Here are today’s supplies:
Hope you enjoyed today’s project as much as I did! Thanks for stopping by!

It’s Friday! Today I have a beach scene to share with you. It’s part of the re-release, Beach Party. It’s also time for a new challenge…Texture! Check out the Texture Challenge at A Day For Daisies Blog. Don’t forget to get your freebie to play along!
My texture is the distressed edges and the little shell. I printed the image on watercolor paper and used Distress Inks, SU reinkers, and Derwent Inktense Watersoluable Pencils to color it. I kept it simple and distressed the edges and used jute to tie the shell and beads on.

This gorgeous image is this week’s new release called Birds in My Hair. All the images from this release are simply stunning! This pretty lady is Pearls in My Hair. I used a laser printer and printed it on watercolor paper. The image was colored with Distress Inks, Copics and a white gel pen.
The feather was added for the Feather Challenge and the roses were made with a McGill paper punch. I also used Star Lightz glitter gel pens to add some sparkle to her dress. I love the shimmer and shine! Be sure play along at A Day For Daisies for a chance to win a $12 store credit. Thanks for stopping by!
