Here's a tall and thin one layer card for this week's OLW challenge on Heather Telford's blog.
I colored the image using Distress Markers and a water brush on watercolor paper. I love the look of these markers and they are so easy to use.
I'm not a fan of coloring on my cards, but that's probably just because I'm not very good at it and it takes more time. However, I've been playing with these markers and I'm actually enjoying it. I'm just keeping the coloring real simple.
The stems on the right show how I quickly colored the flowers before blending with a water brush. This I can do!
Here's the back of my card which I stamped with the mini gladiolus image (from Year of Flowers Collection) along with the markers that I used.
