I have two cards to share today, and I created them using both of the newest Artist Alcohol Marker sets, Space Garden and Island Garden, along with a couple of sheets from the Whimsical Flower Bunch Coloring Sheets pack.

These cards are both very straight-forward coloring projects so I won’t go into much detail today.

For the first card, I colored the floral sheet from the coloring sheets pack using the muted shades of the Space Garden plus some of the previously released alcohol markers. I stamped a greeting from the Magnolias For Her stamp set.

The coloring sheets are 6″ x 6″, so they will fit a large format card template, but can be trimmed down to fit a smaller size as I’ve done here.

(I feel compelled to explain that my photo editing makes the ink-blending look kind of blotchy, the way it separates and contrasts tints and tones, but that the finished product doesn’t actually look that way.)

For my second card, I colored one of the sheets that featured the floral design on one edge of the card, and a quote by Maya Angelou in the center. I wanted to highlight the colored florals, so I trimmed the design by hand and adhered it to a contrasting colored solid cardstock and added a narrow strip of green cardstock along the bottom.

I used the Island Garden marker set along with more colors from previous releases. The greeting is from the Sentiment Strips III set, stamped with embossing ink and heat set with white embossing powder.
