MY FAVORITE TECHNIQUE....

The SUO challenge was MY FAVORITE TECHNIQUE today, and it's no secret that MY FAVORITE TECHNIQUE is Marker Layering, which is coloring in layers of color....I only wish we had MORE great stamp sets in our catalog like THIS one to DO that with!!  I was the hostess for the color challenge on SCS today too, and the colors I chose for this card are Strawberry Slush, Midnite Muse, and Pear Pizazz.  Those are the only three markers I used to color this picture.  Of course I also used blender pens.  Dessert for the color challenge?? Scallops, of any kind.  So I "killed two birds with one stone" as it were, that's a dreadful expression, I wouldn't kill any birds with any stones! But I took care of two challenges, the color challenge on SCS, and the bi-weekly SUO challenge! Play along with either or both!!  Show us what you can do with these three colors only, OR show us your favorite technique!! :) Have fun! As this goes live, I will be in the second week of my brand new job, and if it goes as well as the first week did, I will be a happy camper!!  Working in a new dental office, and so far, they are doing a wonderful job of training me, and I look forward to being there for a long time!! ;) Say a little prayer for me!! I would love to stay there! ;)   And my prayers were answered pretty quickly, I was out of work less then 6 weeks! God is good, and HE KNOWS where we belong,,,,,so have a great week everyone!! Until next time.......Karen

Just stopping over from SCS to to take a peek. You know what, I love this technique too! I think you introduced me to it in a VSN challenge a couple of years ago!
You are very good at it.
Congratulations on your new job. :)

Just beautiful - as always! I love your use of markers and aspire to learn how to do this - but certainly never as beautifully as you do!
