Blog break

I will be on a blog break for a while to make fond family memories back home in the Philippines. I’m looking forward to this vacation for some time now and I’m so glad the day has come 🙂  Already dreaming of the things we can do this summer with the kids 🙂

Until then!

Coloring with Distress Markers

I was able to use  my new Distress Markers last night along with my new Succulent stamps from Hero Arts. I got them from my recent craft haul and so glad to use them this weekend.

I did some test watercoloring to see how the markers works, I think I need a little bit more practice but generally I love them!

I stamped the succulent and pot with Versamark then gold embossed them. I love the raised texture that embossing gives to the images.

Oh and I also used my new Happy Birthday stamp set from  Sweet Stamp Shop.
