Mark’s Finest Papers



Just a quick note of explanation for what I created above; I posted 2 cards using the pumpkin/fox image to show two different coloring mediums, but when they're on the blog post itself its really hard to tell there's much of a difference! The top one uses watercolor crayons while the bottom image uses copic markers. That's all.

As for the third card, I stamped the leaf image in versamark and then shook a bit of three different embossing powders on the stamped images; gold, silver and copper. Sometimes when the sun comes through the trees onto the ground the leaves are just illuminated in a way that makes them look like they're metal, not real leaves . . .that was the thinking there. Thanks for looking and happy hopping!
