The Angel Company - Peony

 Happy Friday!

Today I have a card I created using a technique I saw on Pinterest.  I used VersaMark ink and stamped the image on PTI Kraft cardstock, then embossed the image with white embossing powder and heat gun.

Both the image and the sentiment are from The Angel Company and hopefully will be available again through Red Rubber Designs.  The names of the sets are "Peony" and "For Everything".
The image is colored with Memento Markers.  They are water based markers and you can do this with any waterbased marker or ink.  I colored with the lighter base color then with the darker shade and created some depth and finally cam back with the lighter shade and tried to blend a bit.  Since the ink is water based any ink that has collected on the white embossed areas with wipe off with a tissue leaving the embossed area white.  I love this technique.

Here are the Memento Markers I used - Rose Bud (base flower), Rhubarb Stalk (darker), Pear Tart (base leaf), Bamboo Leaves (darker), Cantaloupe (base center), Potter's Clay (darker), Summer Sky (shadow). 

I saw this technique on Julie Ebersole's Blog.  She has a wonderful video showing how she colored her flowers.  I highly recommend watching it. I really love this technique.

Thanks for stopping by...
