Lettering with brush markers

Another technique we tried at the retreat was lettering with brush markers which I demonstrated. This technique does take practice but it really is quite easy to do and all you need is probably what you already have in your stash. I use Zig Brushable Markers but Tombow markers work just as well. I use a Micron pen to outline and Gelly Roll gliter pens for embellishing.

Stickers and glitter

I am back after a very long hiatus. Much longer than I intended! Recently my Yahoo Group Card Camp held a retreat in Kissimmee Fl. We rented a house in Kissimmee Fl for 4 nights and 7 members of the group attended. We focused on techniques both re-visiting old ones and learning new ones.. It was all very casual and a lot of fun and we plan on doing it again next year! If you would like to join the Card Camp group you can click on the

One of the techniques we learned was the burnished velvet technique using peel off stickers with microfine Glitter Ritz.

I used the Warm Highlights Glitter Ritz and colored the glitter with Copic markers. The leaf peel offs are by Elizabeth Designs.
