Art of Life

I have a new set of Stampin’ Up! Markers to play with now  :).

The following card is actually from a sketch challenge.  I’ve used the colour wheel to select colours again.  That wheel is soooo handy, it takes all the guess work out.

I’ve used the markers directly on the rubber, then huffed on it, the moisture from your breath makes it wet again.  I stamped 3 times without recolouring between stamps.  These are called stamping generations.  I’ve sponged around all the layers and the card with Ruby Red and Chocolate Chip. The card actually folds at the top.  I’m really pleased with the way this has turned out.

Oh and another little tip, the Paper Piercing Tool from the Crafters Tool Kit is wonderful for making nice even and straight holes for your brads 🙂  I have always had trouble lining them up.
