Lani *Day 3*

Hi everyone! I'm in a rush to get this posted today so this post will be quick! :) Here's our beautiful inspiration by Lani:
And here's my take. I decided to make a set of 2 cards featuring all Hero Arts stamps.

On each card, the flower, Hero Arts Classic Bloom H5481, was first colored with Faber-Castell Design Memory Craft Stampers Big Brush Markers and then I added shading directly on top of this using the Faber-Castell Art GRIP Aquarelle watercolor pencils. LOVE that the Stampers Big Brush markers are india ink making the first layer of color completely waterproof! :) The grid panels were lightly distressed and stamped (Hero Arts Graph Background S5435) with Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink. The sentiment, Hero Arts Made with Love CL491, was stamped using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. The background on the blue card was colored using Broken China Distress Ink and the background on the orange card was done with Rusty Hinge Distress Ink. The small border of green is Crushed Olive Distress Ink on white paper. Yep, both of these cards began completely white. I LOVE making cards this way!

Thanks so much for popping by! HUGS!

Hi Jill,
Couple of questions on your supplies. Do you like these colored pencils better or are they pretty much the same as Prisma? How much are the markers and where can I purchase them? Do you like these better than copic? I'm not sure if you do any work for these companys, but before I invest money I just need some opinions. I do have the better brand of the prisma colored pencils.Do you use any liquid with your pencils or just the pencils. I can't think of the solution people use with pencils...it is at the tip of my tongue...:)
I love your card today...just gorgeous...
Thanks for always responding it means a lot.
hugs,jen

These are the perfect pair to take a loud and striking applause. How wonderful they are and their splendor just stands out here on your blog page. I loved them in our Flickr Group and love them even more that I have seen them again.
