A card inspired by another!

Good evening all :)
I have a card here that I've made for the Colour Q challenge. As soon as I saw this colour combo, and the stunning card made by Sylvia, it inspired me to CASe her card. 
So here is my card...

A closer view

And here is Sylvia's card...
Isn't it just stunning??

I used similar techniques to Sylvia too, including stamping and embossing my image before colouring with my Stampin' Up! markers. A little trick I discovered whilst colouring...if you don't have a watercolour blender pen, try spritzing a little water onto a tile or some acetate, and dip your coloured marker into the water before colouring. Then, as the water wears out, the colour gets deeper, so creating some shading.

Supplies used
Cardstock - Whisper White, Crumb Cake
Stamps - Elements Of Style
Markers - More Mustard, Old Olive, Riding Hood Red
Embossing Folders - Adorning Accents Folders, Perfect Polka Dots
Dies - Labels Collection Framelits, Adorning Accents Edglits
Other - Versamark Embossing Pad, Stampin' Emboss Powder; Clear

  3. Gorgeous card, Lizzy, beautiful CASE of my card! Your treatment of the stamps with water to the marker is lovely! To get my deeper color I actually apply the marker, no water many times to get the color darker. but your marbled look is fabulous! Thanks for sharing your card with us this week at the colourQ. It is amazing how the same stamps may be used in so many different ways, different looks! Love yours!

  4. wow, just so pretty, as are all your cards that I have been looking at. Glad I found your blog!
