Too late for Mother's Day

this year...Maybe I'll keep it for next year!

I made this card using Dani's colour challenge of Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, Chocolate Chip and Taken with Teal last month. It features my new Marker Over technique - it's new 'cos I've made up a name for it. It involves using a Stampin' Write Marker to accent parts of an image after it has been stamped which is great for jazzing up mono-coloured wheels. You can even add accents of your own ... like dots. I used this terrific (if I may say so myself) technique for my Convention swaps too!

this looks great Lin Mei! I love how you have done Bella's Border... you insane person, now you are going to have me inking that wheel up with markers!

Lin Mei said...

Thanks muchly, Carol! I am a little insane BUT not THAT insane to ink up a whole wheel with markers *grin*

Lin Mei said...

Now that I think about it ... I could be that insane *giggle*

I'm with Carol - I have always marvelled at SU samples that show the wheel has been coloured and thought 'what person has the patience to do that?' ......... obviously you Lin Mei!

Pretty card.

Love the way you have accented the Bella's border. It looks lovely.

Lin Mei said...

Hey Marcia! Thanks but, you know, I only accent :) Actually, that is not completely true either...

Thanks so much, Fiona! I've had many customers become admirers of your sparkling Convention swap.
