A Little Experiment

This card came about because I wanted to try colouring ordinary white card with promarkers to match my design papers.  This was an idea from Coops   (http://coopsclutteredcorner.blogspot.com/)    that I read in the comments section on Alison's (http://xxxtglxxx.blogspot.com/)  blog.   I started with the lovely floral Pink Petticoat paper and went from there. You can just about see my pink Promarker-ed card behind the DP and the Sentiment. I was also looking for a suitable card to give the Marianne bird die-cut its first airing.

DP - Pink Petticoat - magazine freebie
White card, gems and ribbon from stash  - Pink card (bird) Bazzill Bling
Roses from Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment - Boxed Wishes by Inkadinkadoo
Tools used:  Marianne Creatables Die - LR0138

Thanks for looking.


  1. Another gorgeous card Louise. Well done on trying a new technique, I've yet to try that one. Love the floral paper you have used and the die cut bird on a branch in 'blingy' card. Your flowers set it off really nicely too xxx

  2. Brilliant Louise :)

    It was a comment left on my blog by the ever-so talented Coops. I was blown away when I read it - genius!

    Your card looks so well matched and the tones are perfect. Your die is fab and I just adore the flowers.



  3. Thanks Alison - just edited post to include a mention for you both.
