Fun With Distress Markers

I broke out my Distress Markers to create this card. I forgot how much fun I can have with them. I am so happy that I ordered the new set...just got them on Saturday :) I used a mister to help the colors blend together on the background, but left them go on the sentiment. I like the combination of the 2 looks. Definitely going to experiment more with this :)

I love how you did that blended background! I can barely find the time to craft these days but this definitely makes me want to play with my distress markers!

That's a great background! Love how you did that. I'm resisting those distress markers so far, so quit tempting me, Pryn. I don't need them, I don't need them, I don't need them. There. Maybe that did it!

I like! The background looks really soft and blended. I don't even own distress markers...I have been looking for something to create a tie die effect and those just may do it!

I am with Julie... I have resisted so far. This looks awesome! I feel the tug.
