Color Therapy Blog Hop + Giveaway

by jenniferrzasa

Welcome to our Color Therapy Blog Hop!

Life can get stressful and many people find coloring to be the best therapy! This blog hop features projects from fantastic designers, all colored with our Artist Markers.

I created a quick card using our Floral Frame Stamp and Die Set.

I started by stamping the images onto white cardstock with Permanent Black Ink. Then, I used markers from all three of our Artist Markers sets to color in the images. Once they were colored, I die cut them with the coordinating dies.

Next, I blended two shades of pink onto white cardstock and cut it out with our Miss You Word Die for an awesome two-toned ombré effect. These elements were all added to a Spicy Yogurt card base, with the floral arrangement and sentiment popped up with foam tape.

Well past time I put more than my toe in the water and really used these sets of markers. Bought them all and got stage fright…, something I never really did on a real stage. Maybe I was more confident singing than colouring?
