Birthday Dahlias Coloured In With Crayola Markers

I never thought I'd get such a great result from Crayola fine line markers and a water brush...I got the set of 12 colours and this set was quite cheap and easily available..the only thing is that they work best with water only on watercolour cardstock...

I started by stamping the flowers and the leaves on watercolour cardstock...I did quite a bit of masking as well to make all the flowers and leaves look like they were a part of a bunch...I then added only a little bit of colour from the marker and used a water brush to pull out the colour and fill up the flowers and leaves...

Once dry,I die cut the top layer from this panel and adhered it to the a plain white card base..

Using Altenew sapphire ink pad ,I stamped the sentiment on a small strip and cut it out and adhered it to the card front using some adhesive foam underneath...

To embellish my card I have simply added a few sparkling clear sequins and used my sparkle pen to add a bit of glitter to the flowers and leaves...

I'm sharing a picture of the marker packaging in case you'd like to try them out...as far as I know, there are two different 12 packs and a 40 pack of markers...I used this one for my card today and it was selling for A$2.99 when I bought it....


So very glad you stopped by my blog today....Hope you will have a bright and sunshiny day today...!!
