There is a new challenge up at Jingle Belles called "Look What Santa Brought Me." It's all about using what Santa brought you for Christmas (or what you bought yourself). :) I got surprised on Christmas day by my oldest daughter when I opened up a complete set of Karin Pro Brushmarkers. So the Jingle Belles challenge was the perfect time for me to try them out for the first time.
I didn't know what to expect using them for the first time. So I stamped the image on watercolor paper but next next I will try a smooth white cardstock instead. I love these markers!!!! The pen tip is sort of a hard but soft sponge like material and the color goes on very vibrant! Since this was my first time to use them, I decided to go with a simple design. I also had a new ink pad to try out by Gina K Designs. After Christmas, I got a complete set of Gina K dye ink pads plus a black in her Amagram ink (there was a great sale plus Christmas gift money burning a hole in my pocket). ;)
Here is the finished result of my first attempt with the new markers. I added washi tape down each side of the stamped images plus twine bows on the wreaths. Fun card to make and I love being a little more prepared for next Christmas (wink.) Thanks for stopping by and remember to stay crafty.....hope you got new craft "toys" for Christmas too. ;)
