Happy Grandpa's Day Too!

We always celebrate Mother's and Father's Day with the grandparents and we call it grandma's or grandpa's day!   This week's card is for this special occasion!

Both the image and the sentiment (modified) on this card are from Stamping Bella.  The image was stamped on Canson XL 140LB watercolour paper.  I coloured it with distress markers.  I used the distress markers the same way as how you would use watercolour pencils, i.e. applying the colours directly on stamped images and then move the colours using a wet brush.  I have never use distress markers like this before but wanted to give it a try after watching another inspiring YouTube video from Sandy Allnock couple weeks ago.  

As you can see the result is awesome!  The colours are vibrant and rich (it is inks after all) and yet still natural!  I absolutely love it!

I think I might make another one for my daughter (she loves piggy and she thought I was making this card for her) using Inktense and see how they compare!

All the products I used are listed below.  Thank you for stopping by.  I hope you enjoyed this card and have a creative day!
