Concord & 9th Hello Lovely Stamp, Colored with Touch 5 Markers

I had a card that I’d gotten from a viewer, Liliana, that used the Concord & 9th, Hello Lovely flower. I wanted to use my Touch 5 markers to color it and sentiments from MFT True Friends and Creative Times Floral Sayings. I stamped in my MISTI with Memento Black Ink so it won’t smear with the alcohol markers. I didn’t end up using embossing powder on my sentiments.
I used my Touch 5 markers that I bought in a set of 168 on Ebay for $63.99 (with no shipping costs.)
I used a variety of reds and purples as there aren’t a lot of mid-tone purples or reds in this or other marker sets I’ve purchased. If you want the mid-tones in those color families, you’ll need to buy individual markers that are from open stock. The best varieties and lowest prices on open stock markers, I’ve found at Dickblick.com.
After I finished coloring my card, I added foam squares that I bought from the Dollar Tree and added to the back of my floral image. The floral image is 5 1/2″ tall by 3 3/4″ wide. The card is 8 1/2″ b 5 1/2″ tall, scored at 4 1/4″ to make the folded card 5 1/2″ tall by 4 1/4″ wide.
I used peg stamps (www.pegstamps.com) to decorate the card from one of their new sets called Autumn Glory. I used Sweet Sugar Plum and Always Artichoke inks from Stampin’ Up to stamp the mums and leaves.
