Another Gina K Stamp TV Card

I am just loving Gina K's Stamp TV and Floral Frenzy Kit! Not only am I trying old techniques again, but it's helping me get my mojo going. There's nothing like settling in and following along after someone else has done the hard work of designing for you. Then it's all about the crafting and relaxing... no pressure. I love it!

This card uses the Thumping With Markers technique. Gina uses Memento markers, but you can do this with Stampin Up markers (that's what I used). It works best with watercolor markers. You could actually get it to work with Copics, but it requires re-moistening with a mist of Colorless Blender. I've never tried it, but I saw Marianne demonstrate it at the Copic Certification class. Still, I think Thumping is really meant for watercolor markers.

Everything here is from the Floral Frenzy kit except the little felt butterfly, which is by Heidi Swapp.

I'll be back soon with more cards to share.

In the meantime, the Question of the Day is: what is your favorite meat (if any)?

Mine is filet mignon... cooked to perfection, of course, at a fine restaurant! I guess I have steak on my mind right now because my husband is grilling some for dinner. Not filet mignon, but it will be tasty just the same.

This is such a pretty card Lisa - i love the black, it makes everything POP.
Hope your steak dinner is divine - even if it's not filet mignon!

Oh this is so pretty Lisa, the colours are awesome!! I saw Gina do this technique but I haven't tried it yet. I always have to case someone when my mojo goes on holidays too. I think it helps! My favourite meat is Prime Rib....nothing like expensive taste on a hamburger budget! But I like burgers too!
