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

Hummingbirds & Australian Nature I stamp sets

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.

    Thanks for the great blending tip on the video. I started a watercolour of a dogwood flower last night so the tips will definitely be helpful. Your project turned out gorgeous.
