Distress Markers!!!

I was going to wait to post this until I had a card made with the image but I just can’t wait! Taylor has Distress Markers in her store over at Taylored Expressions! Well when she emailed me and told me that she was going to be getting them in I put in an order for the full set because we all know I love me some coloring mediums. So… they arrived just a couple of days ago but I had to wait to play with them. 🙁 Today I found some watercolor paper and some time and got to work and here is what I came up with:

Daisy by Jen Shults

I stamped the large daisy from the Oops a Daisy stamp set on Canson 90# watercolor paper using Palette Hybrid ink in Noir. Then armed with a small waterbrush and my Distress Markers I started watercoloring. Here are the markers I used:

Flower Center: Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey, Vintage Photo
Petals: Weathered Wood, Pumice Stone, Dusty Concord (shadows)
Leaves: Peeled Paint, Forest Moss, Dusty Concord (shadows)
Glow: Scattered Straw 

I tend to like my watercolor to look a little watercolorish, lol so I don’t smooth it as much as I could. I’m going to work on getting a video tutorial together soon on coloring these flowers. 🙂
