Supplies you'll need for this project
Distress Markers  
Distress Markers from Ranger are vibrant water-based pens with both a fine-point and a brush tip for coloring, journaling and stamping.
 
Our Artist in Residence answers your questions
Q: Carolyn asked: "Can you provide a tutorial on using napkins in card making? "
A: You are in luck. Lydia wrote a great tutorial called Felted cardstock. You can find it here.
 
Feedback From Past Tutorials
Naomi has a sugestion for the Broom Lollipop tutorial: " I think I would just color the white stick with a brown sharpie instead of rolling cardstock around it. Much faster."
