Finally! Spoonfull of Sugar #37








I finally got some time to play, so here is my latest card. I bought some Prismacolor markers from a girl online and thought I would play around with them for this challenge. It was kind of hard at first, but after I got the hang of it, I really started enjoying the difference between the alcohol based markers and water based ones. So, last week my friend Cindy E. and Hearts Delight Cards used this gorgeous stamp that I was going to purchase but didn't. Of course, her card was so pretty, I had to go get that stamp so I could case it! LOL I am still kind of on the Valentine kick, and this flower was just begging to be made into a card for a special someone. I also tried some paper piecing, as this was what Cindy did on hers and it looked so nice. I took a picture so you could see the layers. All in all, I am very pleased with this card and look forward to more fun creating with these new techniques I am learning.




Blessings!

That looks great! I really like it. Was it super hard to do?

Today's word is gonselen which I believe is Texas-ese for "Gone sailing"
