Hi everyone and welcome to my Sunday how-to videos! As you might have read they are back to my personal blog where they started in the first place. I am so happy to have them back home, I even made a video intro!
I feel like celebrating! Watch out for the next post with giveaways!!!

Today it’s back to the basics. I am making a super simple (in terms of layout) card, using some of my favorite techniques: distressing, coloring, embossing and die cutting!
I used my distress markers to color the image and also used my watercolor brush to blend here and there. I like the fact that the colors in the main image match perfectly with all the distress inking around the image and the base card. And this is why I love my new distress markers. They are easy to use, they have two nibs (a fine one for details and a brush) and they react to color. Perfection!
Here is a closer look on this pretty stamped image. I added glossy accents on the vase and stickles on the flowers.
And guess what? That card is flat! Oh yes… it must be the first F L A T card I ever made… no dimension, no 3d foam adhesives, no ribbon… nothing … and I am telling you that was HARD to do! I love dimension… but I tend to challenge my self lately 🙂
Anyway enjoy the video here on on my personal YouTube channel.
Did you like my video intro? Took me a day to put everything together, but I am proud of it.
Thank you all for visiting today! Enjoy the day 😉
