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
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 ( 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.
