Howdy folks! I'm sharing some Country Love with y'all today! This card qualifies for the following challenges:
When I saw this stamp in the Classy Cards 'n Such store, I had to get it right away. I'm giving this card to my sweet hubby for our anniversary. :-) I've used my brand new Distress Markers to color this in on watercolor paper - so fun and so easy! Since this is going to a man, I didn't add any flowers or ribbons or flourishes. I kept it simple with distressed edges and some linen thread. I used the Torn Frames technique from Technique Junkies to add some texture and distressing.
It's really easy to use the markers. Stamp your image with waterproof ink onto watercolor paper and let it dry completely. Add a tiny bit of color with a Distress Ink Marker and then use a water brush to drag the ink around to color in the image. Add more color with markers as needed. Let the image dry completely before cutting and adhering to your project. The brush tip on these distress ink markers is really fine and it actually gets into those tiny little spaces like you see in my card above.
I've used the following products on my card:
A Little Bit of Country stamp (Stampavie)
With Love stamp set (Stampavie)
