I love trying out different mediums on different papers – and today it’s dark, rich, colored papers! I layered pencil, then Copic marker, than more pencil.

I don’t have brand names for these papers; a few years back I cut up a bunch of papers into card front size and I’m still working through that stack, so I have no idea what it is – but you don’t want anything with a gloss or sheen to it. Heavier papers tend to work better too. Try out colors on scraps so you know what to expect!

The colors used for the two cards….the G24 was the last color added to the tulip greens.

Hydrangeas in Bloom is a pretty little stamp! The lines are quite delicate and thin, which is what inspired this card design; it was so thin I thought I could get color variance mixing it with white pen.

Tulips, by Waffle Flower, is a Mother’s Day set but can definitely be used year round – there are other sentiments for the women in your life!
