Karen, not only was your card gorgeous (as always), but your technique was amazing. I just had to try it right away. I was so pleased with the results. I even added a wide SU Organdy ribbon that I heat curled. See how you inspire us all ?!?
Thank you Karen for sharing your talents and your descriptions to your works of art!
The Steps to this unnamed technique:
Ink "Secret Garden" stamps with Versamark and stamp on Crumb Cake (Kraft) cardstock. Sprinkle with White EB Powder, shake off excess and heat set.
Use Aqua Painter to paint the insides of flowers with White Craft Ink. Let Dry.
Use Karen's "Marker Layering" Technique with blender pen to color each flower.
The result is a soft dreamy look to your flowers. I added mini silver brads to my flowers. I also added a die cut stamped leaf for a little dimension and heat curled the organdy ribbon (ret). The top of the card front was dry EB with Vine St. EB Folder.
I hope you ALL try this wonderful technique.
Thanks again Karen for all you do for all of us!
BTW, my card qualifies for this weeks F4A156..Go to Your Happy Color Place. Thanks Dawn, the colors in my card are many of my favorites.

Nancy, your card is BEAUTIFUL!! I love the flowers on the kraft cs and the partial embossing with the vine folder! Wonderful job of coloring with the markers and the heated ribbon has such a nice look!

Beautiful! I first saw this technique in Technique Junkies in their June/July 2005 issue, called Pastel Pigments. Beautiful effect!
