I love my markers, I think I use them more than anything else. My friends that have been stamping with me for a while love to laugh at me because I LOVE detailed stamps that require coloring, especially Christmas ones. It's usually not a "Lisa card" unless its got coloring and I did color the stamped image for todays card, but its not a detailed image. I used the adorable whale from the 'Oh, Whale' set from the spring mini and I even broke out a color I honestly cant stand...Summer Starfruit! I wanted some contrast between the Pool Party and Island Indigo and thought the Starfruit was a good color for that.
My texture is a bit more subtle....I used the Cloudy Day embossing folder(also in the Spring mini) for the sky. Such a cute embossing folder, I am definitely going to have to break it out more often.
My sketch is from this weeks Freshly Made Sketches. I havent been able to play along with them for a few weeks so I was glad to be able to join in again!
Make sure you head over to The Friday Mashup and check out all the great cards from the rest of the design team, and then play along with us!
