Roses are Red

Created for a challenge on SCS using flowers on a card. I dug out and old set from Stampin Up a technique I pinned on Pinterest. Of course I didn't visit the blog when I pinned it, but did today when I decided the CASE the card. It's a design by juliehrr of course. She was one of my first stamping idols. Love how her simple designs always look amazing!

For this card I stamped and embossed in white on Kraft cardstock, one of my current favorite looks. I can never get my copics to look bright enough on Kraft when I color I though... It's always a little muted. The trick according to Julie is to use good old water based markers! I pulled out my stampin up markers which have been collecting dust since I discovered copics and voila! They colored beautifully on Kraft! Plus the water based marker wipes off the white embossing powder easily for a nice vibrant look. Love it!
