So Grateful

My brother-in-law is in for a super big treat tonight.  Through friends of my Mom, he received 4 complimentary tickets to the Bryan Adams show Tokyo!  Needless to say, we are SO grateful to the people who made this possible.  So of course in true Stampin' Up! Demonstrator fashion, I wanted to make them a card.  ;)

I did some layering with my markers to create a painted look on the flowers.  
To create this look at home you'll need a selection of makers in the same colour (I used pinks) in a variety of hues.  (You can see the exact colours I used in the supply list below.)  Start with your lightest colour, and colour in the flower.  Work using your lightest to darkest markers, and keep layering the ink colours one on top of one the other, but still leaving the previous colour layers exposed in places.  Throughout the process be sure to use your blender pen to blend the colours together.  It takes some practice, and I'm certainly no expert, but I hope you'll try it.

Stamps: Apothecary Art, Style Beautiful
Ink: Basic Black, Wild Wasabi
Paper: Whisper White, Basic Black, Wild Wasabi, Rose Red
Stampin' Write Markers: Pink Pirouette, Pretty in Pink, Regal Rose, Rose Red, Wild Wasabi

I hope you have a terrific day!  I'm going to be working on some upcoming class samples, so look out for those next week!  Until tomorrow...

Happy Stampin'
