Mark's Finest Papers Blog Hop Day 3!

Mark's Finest Papers Design Team is celebrating our BRAND NEW STAMPS for the Speedy the Cat Designer Collection and Serenity Collection with a Blog Hop! They are available TODAY!

My card today features my favorite stamp set from the last release we had, Sunflowers, Blackberries and Bees.  I stamped the image onto MFP watercolor paper and used a watercolor brush directly on the wet ink to make to fill in the center of the flower.  Then I used a combination of 2 watercolor crayons to add a wash of yellow on the petals, and a streak of green crayon to color in the stem.
Ingredients: Stamps: Mark's Finest Papers {Blackberries, Sunflowers and Bees}; Cardstock: Mark's Finest Papers {Watercolor Paper, Hazelbut Tan, Deepest Mahogany}; Designer Paper: Mark's Finest Papers {Basic Grey: Indian Summer}.
For your chance to win BLOG CANDY, visit and comment on each of the following design team members' blogs on February 10th, 11th, and 12th. On Saturday, (February 13), a winner will be chosen from those who have visited all 9 blogs all three days.

The winner will be announced on the Mark's Finest Papers Blog and will receive 2 Stamp Sets that will be released NEXT month. And remember, Friday night will be the New Flourishes Release at Mark's Finest Papers!

Good Luck!
