Male Valentine Card

This is my first card using Ranger's Distress Markers, I usually use copic markers and both have their good points. They cannot be compared to each other as they are completely different when coloring an image.

This is my first card using the Distress Markers from Ranger!

Inside of card - I made a pocket on the left side of the card which you could put a personal message in or some money.

Products used in this project:
Card Base: my card base was a white 5"x 7" Card.
Stamp: Stacy Stamps - http://www.stacystamps.com/
Image: was colored with Distress Ink Markers.
Paper: Paper Loft - Flip Flops  - Burgandy Dashed Grid/Light Olive Solid.
Paper: Kaisercraft Pickled Pear Collection - P972 Apple.
Modge Podge: I put a coat of Modge Podge on the torn rolls at the bottom of the card to add a high gloss effect on the rolls.
My Stash: Ribbon, Sentiments, Die Cuts and Charms.
Distress Ink Markers used:
Bird - Brushed Corduroy and Tea Dye.
Stems of flowers - Peeled Paint.
Leaves - Peeled Paint and Shabby Shutters.
Flowers - Milled Lavender and Dusty Concord.

  23. Hi Jo Ann Thank you so very much for dropping by my blog and I really appreciate the word from Our LORD you left me as it means so much to me. It's been a bit tough this last year and hoping this year will be better. GOD has blessed me already and my husband, it's hard for us to see what is happening is for our own good as we can't see the reasoning. I know the LORD will get us through to the other side, we just have to trust him and take everything to HIM and not to try and over think it ourselves. I hope you have a lovely day. God Bless you! Happy Crafting! Ange xxoo
