Marks Finest Papers' April Blog Hop- CAMELLIA

Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

April Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

Here is the card I did with this stamp set for today:
Featured April 18

Using Versamark and white glitter embossing powder, I stamped and heat embossed my flower. This is a nice sparkle that I couldn't quite get pictured.

To color this pretty flower, I used Tim Holdtz distress markers and did a quick and easy watercolor technique. Items needed, markers, water pen and clear stamp block. All I did was color a little on the stamp block with the aqua pen, I picked up the color and applied it to the flower.
 Hope you like this, I am definitely going to try the water color technique again.
