Here is what I made using products from Faber-Castell and myStamp BOX:

For this card I used the flower stamps from the Cherry Blossoms set by myStamp BOX. To add some color to the card, I used a Mix & Match set of Stamper’s Big Brush Pens and treated them as watercolours. I scribbled some ink onto an acrylic block and used a wet paint brush to color in the flowers with the ink. The background got a light color wash with the lightest color of the marker set, slightly darker in the lower left color and faiding out to the right upper corner.

I love the fact that, even though I added quite some water for this technique, the colors of the markers is still very vibrant. I finished up the card with sentiments from the Funky Flowers stamp set, a glazed brad and some black stitching.

For the second card, I used that same Cherry Blossoms stamp set and a sentiment from the Programmed Robots set. The stamp set has some bigger dot stamps to add color to the hearts of the flowers. I used an Orange Glaze Stamper’s Big Brush Pen and applied it straight onto my acrylic stamp to make these hearts pop. I used the same technique on the sentiment.

Now it’s time to HOP along and find out what the next talented designer has created. Your next designer is Jolene Johnston. Don’t forget to leave a comment below for a chance to WIN one of our THREE product giveaways!
