In Color Markers!

Have you heard the wonderful news? Stampin’ Up! is offering In Color Stampin’ Write markers in the new 2009-2010 catalog! I used four of them on this Limited Supplies challenge card: Melon Mambo, Bermuda Bay, Crushed Curry, and Dusty Durango.

The challenge (LSC223) called for a one-layer card with a summer theme. I stamped the Cheers to You image with black StazOn ink and colored it in with markers. Then I used a blender pen with Going Gray ink to draw a thin shadow around the image. The sentiment was “stamp-a-ma-jigged” on both sides of the image, which I thought looked quite nice.

Thanks for stopping by!
