Marks Finest Papers May Blog Hop (featuring Tiger Lily & Tree Frogs)

Welcome to the Marks Finest Papers, a Heinrich Company

May Blog Hop! 

This month's New Stamp Set Releases are

 Featured May 15
Tiger Lily Tree Frogs
Here is my take using these two stamps. The first one is the Tiger Lily. I did the emboss resist tech. One of my favorites and every easy to do. 

  • emboss image with black embossing powder and heat gun
  • pick color markers, for this tech, Tim Holtz Distress Ink Markers work the best.
  • Scribble marker over clear stamp block
  • using water pen (or paint brush) pick up ink and color image.

Next is the Tree Frog Stamp Set:
I used color pencils and OMS for this image. Using Bic markers, I scribbled the green background and did some doodle framing in black.

Hope to see you tomorrow for our last hop project.
