CTMH From the Deep Blue

I really like the CTMH From the Deep Blue stamp set and Thin Cuts. I colored the fish with CTMH Watercolor Pencils and then used CTMH Clear Shimmer Pen on them. The coloring was easy as I layered then on all at once and blended with the clear shimmer pen.

CTMH Mason Jar Bouquet Card

I love the new CTMH stamp set Mason Jar Bouquet because the jar can be used multiple ways. The photo does not show that I covered the jar with acetate to give it a shine. I used Spectrum Noir Tri Blend markers to color the flower. When using the Spectrum Noir Tri Blend Markers I get the best results using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock. The ink does not bleed the black ink and the markers glide easily on the cardstock.



To make this card I used:
Stamps: CTMH Mason Jar Bouquet
Paper: CTMH Whisper White, CTMH Carolina Cardstock, CTMH These are My People Paper Pack and Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Versafine Onyx Black, CTMH Pewter, Glacier, CTMH Carolina Exclusive Ink and Spectrum Noir Tri Blend Markers
Accessories: Sponge Dauber, 3D Foam Thin, 3D Foam Tape and unknown white cord
