FS546 - Thank You


Congratulations to this week's Splitcoaststampers' Featured Stamper Vicky (aka Miss Vicky). I chose this card as my inspiration:


I focused on Vicky's:
-polka dots
-single flower and leaf
-thank you theme

I changed:
-colours
-technique
-stamping instead of die cuts

I got some new markers last week - they are waterbased and I am trying out different techniques with them. To create this background, I used a stencil, two colours of markers and LOTS of water. At first, it doesn't look very pretty, but over time, the colours kind of melt and blend together - it just takes  lots of patience for dry-time! I think this yellow-pink combination is pretty, but I also tried some other colour combinations:



Here's a video.

Love the pink and yellow combo! And, what a fun technique - need to look at my stencils differently.

Love this design and have been wondering how to use stencils and the new markers I just bought. I'm new and trying from reading and following my favorite designs like yours! Tried to click on the Polka stencil to order but it will not show it to me. Must be discontinued?
