The Paper Players Challenge #206 & Weekly Deals

I spent a little bit of time this past Sunday getting to know my new Blendabilities Markers in Old Olive,  Daffodil Delight & Cherry Cobbler. I am completely loving them and can't wait to get my next colors. Blendabilities are alcohol based markers that match some of the Stampin' Up! ink & paper colors. Water-based ink is used to stamp the image so it will not smear when you color it in. Most of the samples I had been seeing online had stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black. This ink DOES happen to be my all time favorite "go to" black ink, but for this card, I didn't want the  black outline. Since the regular Stampin' Up! markers are water based, I decided to try those. I colored the rubber on this flower stamp with Old Olive & Real Red markers, stamped, then I laid down various layers of the Delightful Daffodil and the Cherry Cobbler Blendabilities. I used the lightest marker from each set and accented the petals with the color lifter. Then colored the stems with the Old Olive Blendabilities lightest marker.

I stamped the Chevron background stamp with Daffodil Delight and cut various tags from the Flashback series DSP with the Banner Framelits. (I am seriously addicted to those Banners!) I used the Ovals Framelits and the Deco Labels Framelits for the main image and popped it up using Stamin' Dimensionals.

Full list of supplies to follow. Isn't this bright & cheery?
