Pastel Flowers and Yellow & Grey Rose (Karin Markers)

 Hi there. I have a couple of cards to share today using my new Karin Markers.

The first card I used. the markers to make a watercolour card...

I stamped the floral image with a well inked Delicata Gold stamp pad and then embossed with a new aquisition, Distress Embossing Glaze (Antique Linen).  I love the way the gold sparkles under the transluscent embossing powder.  I added a touch of the Karin Marker colour and blended with a Silver Brush and water.

In the next card I used the markers to shade each layer of the flower die-cut...

The flower and leaves are from various Altenew layered die sets. The pepaer is from Kaisercraft and American Crafts.  The sentiment is from SSS.

I'm sharing at the following:-

The verdict: I'm loving these markers. I still love my Zigs, but because I frequently use my favourite colours, they seem to dry out quickly. It's nice to have new colours with the Karin Markers and it will be interesting to see how long they last. I'll let you know. 

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog! I love to read your comments:)


  1. Such a delicate and beautiful first card, with the prettiest of colouring and I really must invest in the distress embossing glazes x. I love the layering on the second contemporary card and a great colour combination Jenny x.

  2. I hope the Karin markers last well as they give beautiful color! Love the embossing on the first card as well as the coloring and your layered yellow rose is so pretty! Love that texture!

  3. Your cards are beautiful Jenny. Looks like you have found a lot of ways to use the new markers. Especially love the first card with the gorgeous spray of flowers and amazing watercolouring. xx

  4. The Karin markers did a beautiful job of coloring that gorgeous die cut. I love the shades of yellow and the texture of the leaves is lovely. Perfect against the dotted background! Thanks for joining us at Color Hues!

  5. What a gorgeous card your first one is Jenny - love your colouring of the image. The colouring of the cardstock on the second ensures that your colours are just as you want them - a great technique.
