Simply New Markers and Stamps Card

 I have been learning to use new techniques and acquiring new skills and as I do, I enjoy offering this knowledge to my students and of course my blog readers.
Recently I began delving into stamp and marker techniques and purchased a few new Tombow markers. These markers are water-based and have two brush tips.
Here is my first card designed using two Great Impressions rubber stamps and five Tombow markers. For this card all I did was experience the ease of working with the flexible fiber brush. The color flowed onto the cardstock easily and I enjoyed working with the markers on the stamped images.
Basic card for base 5” x 7”
White card stock
Textured pink cardstock
Great Impression Stamps:
      7G359 Art Nouveau Border
      7G362 Chinese Lanterns

Tombow Markers:
    062 Pale yellow
    133 Chartreuse
    772 Blush
    977 Saddle Brown

I hope you like this simple card and try exporing this art form along with me!

wonderful Carla! I think Tombow are the best waterbased markers out there and most of mine are second hand (10 cents a peice from a yard sale) and the work better than the brand new leplumes I bought! Love the artdeco and lantern images you chose too! Great work girl!
