TTC03 - Florals

There's a new challenge up at the Touch Twin Markers & More Challenge blog - this time we're using our markers to create projects with a floral theme. We hope you'll join the fun!

The whole team is working with the same Impression Obsession image today...we are so thankful to them for sponsoring our challenges this month!! I stamped the Daisy Love image from Impression Obsession twice in Adirondack Willow ink. The same ink was used to watercolor around the image, so you can see what color the ink is - a very light green. From there I colored in the image using Touch Twin Markers (colors are listed below), working from light to dark. The technique is based on principles in the tutorial available here<<<

I did a modified Polished Stone technique on the horizontal panel here... I dotted markers, spritzed with rubbing alcohol, dotted more, and spritzed more, until I got the effect that I wanted. The sentiment can be found HERE.

These are the Touch Twin Markers I used:

You can visit the Touch Twin Markers & More Challenge blog for all the details if you'd like to play! Don't have a blog? That's OK. Just post to any online gallery with the keywords TTC03 and touchtwin. Don't have Touch markers? That's OK too for now. Starting in January we will require using our markers, but for now you can use any coloring medium. Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by!
