Hey Crafty Friends! Thanks so much for stopping by and joining us this Saturday. Today, I am the guest designer for our Newsletter segment and I decided to create this orchid and hummingbird card using my Tombow markers.
What you’ll need to create this card is:
Watercolor Paper (Cold press is the best)
Watercolor brush & Water
Tombow Markers #’s 755, 905, 873, 491
Distress Markers Peacock Feathers, Peeled Paint, Mowed Lawn
White Embossing Powder & Heat Gun
Tips on creating this card:
Use two colors side by side. First apply the dark marker. Next with the lighter marker go over it closely next to the darker marker.
Spread the ink evenly with a watercolor brush lightly.
For a bit more detail, take a light blue marker and color the outside of the flowers for more depth of white. This allows the white embossing to stand out more in contrast.
For the Hummingbird: use your darker shades on along the outside. Next use your lighter marker. Leave the inside white and spread the ink with a watercolor brush.
I decided against adding a sentiment to my card just incase someone would like to frame this. So I placed my sentiment from our Everyday Greetings in the inside.
I hope that you have enjoyed today’s card. Thank you for joining me! I will be back tomorrow with our Sunday Designer Feature! With paper hugs, Joanna xxx
