I taught a class on Distress Markers last night so when I got home and started to make my card, it only seemed natural to pull out the Distress Markers!

First, I scribbled a few reds and pinks on my craft mat and misted with water to make little puddles of colour. Then I dragged my card through the ink. I did a couple of layers like that but it was still pretty light due to the colours I was using so I misted the whole thing with Interference Red Perfect Pearls Mist..

I stamped some leaves in VersaMark and heat embossed in white. I then quickly and messily coloured in the leaves with two colours of green. I stamped the sentiment in Archival, knowing I would be misting again, and stamped a few hearts, then added some tissue tape.

It still needed something so I used my VersaMarker to colour the hearts and then dusted them with Plum Perfect Pearls and added a few details with my Stardust pen and Uniball White Signo Gel Pen. Finally, I misted the whole thing with Biscotti Perfect Pearls Mist and added Coarse Texture Gel over a script stencil.

It’s OK, not my fave but it’s another card under my belt! I do like how the stencil work turned out – I was impressed to get the detail with a coarse gel, and I like how the white pen highlighted the words. The Stardust pen adds a good sparkle too, though you can’t see that in the pics.

I’ll be back tomorrow with another card – and one from M too!
