Beautiful Effects with Markers for an Easter Card

I had one more card to share with you this week from my Occasions Catalog swapl  This time it is a gorgeous card from Stacey Lane who never fails to stun me with her creations.  In this case, there are so many great touches but I was actually stuck admiring her awesome coloring of the tulips.

But first up, here is her card:

See, so much cute going on from the embossed cardstock to the hint of washi tape and just a few pearls for an elegant touch!

But like I mentioned before, check out the flowers!

I’ll admit, the reason I like stamping is because I’m not an artist that knows how to draw or paint.  But I can combine colored stamp images to make something cute.  However, I am going to have to give this two toned coloring a try!

I know once we get the Blendabilities alcohol markers, this will be piece of cake… but I realized that I can even do something like this with my markers or blender pens that I have now!

All you need to do is pick out 2 complimentary colors and start by coloring in the lighter color throughout the whole image.  Then use the darker color to highlight or shade parts of your image (in this case the bottoms of the tulips and some of the tips of the leaves).  Just a little goes a long way to an amazing effect.  Don’t you agree?
