Direct to Paper and a new Marker Technique

I had some time yesterday so I went blog hopping. At Dawn's blog I found the most amazing card, this is the link to it Dawn's Stampin Studio go have a look at her version. Then on that card, using the Direct To Paper technique, she also did another technique using markers, a lighter but coordinating ink pad, and a stamp with cut out lines on it. Here is that link Marker Technique . I love both of these techniques and had to stop everything right there and make some of these using the amazing marker technique. I am hooked, thanks Dawn for another great idea.
Here is my card:

I am in a swap later this month, for a Front Row Regional, and the theme is Masculine Birthday. I think this would make a great masculine card. I used:
Ink: Bordering Blue, Night of Navy
Stamps: Patterned Pines, Kind and Caring Thoughts
Paper: Bordering Blue, Night of Navy, Whisper White
Other: Modern Label Punch
First I put Bordering Blue classic ink direct to Bordering Blue cardstock (for the background). It is real dark to start, but lightens as it dries.
Next I inked Patterned Pines with Bordering Blue classic ink
Then I took the Night Of Navy marker and drew over the "cut out lines" on the Patterned Pines stamp.
This was stamped on a 4 1/4 x 3" piece of Whisper White cardstock
Then it was layered on a piece of 4 1/4 x 3 1/4 " Night Of Navy cardstock
This was adhered flat to the prepared card.
The sentiment was stamped in Night of Navy classic ink, then punched with the Modern Label punch.
I then punched the Modern Label twice using Night of Navy cardstock. These were layered behind the WW sentiment.
The entire sentiment was popped up using dimensionals.
Easy peasy, quick and fun to make.
Here are some pictures of different colour combinations I used:

Up close - the Bordering Blue / Night of Navy combination:

Then I tried Old Olive classic pad and Always Artichoke marker:

Then I turned to flowers from Eastern Blooms - they work really well too.
The first one is Pale Plum pad with Perfect Plum marker.
The second one is Pretty In Pink pad with Melon Mambo marker.
I sure had fun "playing" with this technique today. Give it a try. If you are coming to one of my classes this month, I am going to be showing you how to do this technique, an extra card for you to make. Remember, November is my Give Away month and every class you come to, every $25.00 in product you order, each new stamper you bring, each Home Workshop you have, or each Virtual Workshop you have, you earn an entry into my draw. I have lots and lots of stuff to give away.
Thanks for looking, have a super day............. Glenda Mollet
