Here's a very simple card using the Inking with Markers technique
that we're doing at CAS Mix Up this month.

The stamp has two flower heads so I stamped it more than once.
You can use a stamp positioner to do this or ink all the colors and
huff on the stamp. I used the MISTI and moved my card to
stamp the extra flowers.
I inked with the lighter blue first then "thumped" a darker blue on the stamp
before stamping on the cardstock.
I die cut the design piece and used the largest die in the set to emboss
the front of the card.
A little stamped, colored, heat embossed and punched butterfly
finishes off the card.
My mixed media are inking stamp with markers, stamping, thumping, die cutting,
dry embossing with die, heat embossing and punching.

Good news for us!
We are prepared and hoping that we won't be without power for days.
If you pray, pray for those in the direct path.
There will be a lot of wind damage and flooding.
Thanks for the visit and special thanks for your comments.
