Many card-makers buy expensive markers to colour their stamps. Mine came from an office-supply store. ☺
I wanted to be able to have the blossoms on this branch a different colour than the branch itself, as well as the butterflies, which are also part of the stamp. Using markers made it much easier than trying to hit those tiny blossoms with the corner of even a dewdrop-sized inkpad. I also used marker for the sentiment, so there would be an exact match.
Speaking of matches, I'm not sure why the purple layer photographed so dark; it's a good match in real life. Another time, I might add a few Stickles or Spica clear sparkle to the blossoms, but the intended recipient for this card isn't really a blingy-type person, so I restrained myself. ;)
Supplies: white & purple cardstock, Memory Box butterfly stem, Hero Arts thank you, Laurentien markers, corner-rounding punch
