KatelynCo Blog Hop ~ May 14th, 2012

Hey guys! Thank you for joining me on the KatelynCo Blog Hop! If you just came from Jill, you are on the right track! But if you are just popping in for a visit to my blog, then you can start at Emma's blog. This blog hop is full of great projects and exciting giveaways, so let's get started!!!(:

For my project, I did a really fun technique with embossing powder, Tim Holtz Distress Markers, and water and Perfect Pearls Mists. This did take me a very long time, but in the end, it was totally worth it! If you want to know how to do this technique, this video helps a lot!!!(: http://www.jennifermcguireink.com/2012/05/distress-marker-video-giveaway.html This is the link to Jennifer's blog, which talks about the technique and it also features the video. This fit right in with the sunshine and rainbows theme of the hop, and I decided to take the idea and use my quatrefoil stamp set and do the technique, because I thought it was SOOO great!!! I didn't make a layer, I just used the card layer and none of the markers bled through, only a little at the top and that was my mistake. These markers are completely amazing and you guys should check them out. I got the whole set which includes ALL of the colors, including Picket Fence. If you watch the video I linked you guys to, she explains some of the markers. I hope to make some videos about the Picket Fence marker and stain in the future.
