You are Awesome Blossom!

This Zen Bouquet stamp is the latest of my Zentangle inspired stamp designs, and is being featured on the Magenta blog today. I designed it so that it would work for coloring, or stamped onto an all-over wash of color. In this case, I chose to color the blossoms, and used Tombow markers.

I stamped the Zen Bouquet stamp with Versafine Smokey Gray ink, and embossed it with clear embossing powder. I colored the blossoms with various Tombow markers, just in the areas where I wanted the color to be darkest. I then took a clear Wink of Stella glitter brush marker and used it to pull the color out into each blossom and leaf. If you need more color, you can color your marker onto your craft mat, or an acrylic block and pick up the color with your Wink of Stella brush marker, just like using a water brush  This process is very fast and fun to do, and the end result is very glittery! It's hard to capture the sparkle in a photograph.

The sentiment, "You are Awesome" is also my design and is new in the Spring 2017 Collection, and was stamped in Versafine Onyx Black ink. I added a few white dots with a Uniball broad white gel pen.

I die cut the panel with the largest die in a Lawn Fawn stitched rectangle set (see list of materials below). This creates a panel that is 3.75" x 5", and is perfect for matting onto a card.
