Inking stamps with markers can be done for several good reasons. First, it gives a softer image for an almost water color look. Second, it allows an image to be colored with multiple colors all in one step before stamping Third, markers take up less space than ink pads and are cheaper. A pack of markers allows you to stretch your color options without taking up lots of space or money.
Colors used one these flowers are: Pear Pizzazz, Coastal Cabana, Flirty Flamingo, and Mango Melody. Greeting is done with Mossy Meadow.
To see how quick and easy this technique is, watch my Marker Stamping with the Corner Bouquet Tutorial.
On my first try creating this card, I stamped my image too high. To ‘fix’ my mistake, I tied a Mossy Meadow Linen Trim Bow across the blank space. As I’m looking at the card now, I think I should have moved the bow to the other side to make it look like it was holding the bouquet together, lol. Next time!
I’ve added a second Corner Bouquet, the smaller image from the set, to the inside corner of the card using the same colors.
