Learn how to get the most our of our alcohol based markers! Blend and intensify--all without streaks! Each marker is packaged with and accent color, either lighter or darker, for easy blending. No guessing about which accent color goes best.
Fun primary colors of Outdoor Denim, Cranberry and Honey make for a bright and cheery look!
The shapes were cut with our Cricut Artiste cartridge which gives some nice detail to the overall look. The little flower is mounted on a Pin Clip tied with some Outdoor Denim Chevron Ribbon and accented with a blue sparkle. Since the Bee layer has 3D Foam underneath I just stuck the pin into the foam! Look closely and you can see a bit of glare on the wings. That's because I used Liquid Glass on the wings! A bit of sanding on the background and distressing the edges of the layers all add up to give lots of visual detail to the overall design!
