Awash with markers

Last weekend, I got to go stamp with my friend Karen! I am terrible when it comes to figuring out what to take with me if I don't have the projects planned out in advance. (Pauline, I know you're laughing! LOL) I always end up wishing I had something that I left at home. But I managed to mostly make one card and get a start on a couple of others at least.
This is the card I mostly finished. (I didn't have the modern label punch with me. I decided to leave the sentiment off since I didn't have a recipient in mind.) All of the images here were done entirely with markers. I'll admit I haven't used markers much, but since I got the color kit of 13, I've been using them a lot and loving them! It was especially handy for doing that big flower as I could use a different color for the center. I also used the Wild Wasabi marker to give the stems a little extra color. The butterfly was made with one of the flower stamps. I used the Early Espresso marker to draw the body and antennae.
I hadn't used the spiral punch in ages, so I decided to use that as well. Those little holes are perfect for the narrow taffeta ribbon to fit through!
The colors I used are: Daffodil Delight, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, Early Espresso, Marina Mist, Pink Pirouette and Tangerine Tango.
Happy stamping!
