I did some coloring with markers for both of today's cards. Don't be afraid to try coloring with alcohol markers, even if you think you don't know what you're doing! I don't know any fancy techniques, I just use darker colors for the darker areas, and lighter for the lighter areas, and try to pick shades that blend together well! I purchased the Caliart 100 marker set on Amazon and I've been really happy with them. It's a great price for alcohol markers if you don't want to invest in the really expensive ones (not an affiliate link. . .you know I always just want to share what I love!)  For a little extra sparkle on this first card, I added some glitter to the berries. 

On my next card, I clustered a few stamped images together. To finish off the images, I added some white pen highlights. I like the way it adds a little extra POP.

The pink has a beautiful vintage feel. Funny how the non traditional colors feel very very traditionally warm. I really love that. So nice to say Hello. :)

Both are just so very lovely! I also love the double loop twine bow. Such a pretty finishing touch.
