Versamarker shading

To create the shading for this rose, I went over the entire image with the large tip of the Versamarker.  After drying, I went over some areas with the fine point and brushed other areas with just a touch of clear ink from the large tip of the Versamarker.  This double coating gave me a nice subtle tone-on-tone from one marker.  (It is more obvious in person.)

This is the Fifth Avenue Floral stamp set.  Yesterday I saw the discontinued list from Stampin' Up! and this one is on it :-(   It has been around 3 or 4 years now but I still love it.  If you love it and don't have it, time is running out.  You can see the list of retiring sets at Stampin' Pretty's blog.  I believe the new catalog is coming out June 1 this year - a month year.  So I would assume that we only have until May 31 to get anything we want out of the old one.  Accessories are usually available while supplies last.

Thanks for stopping by!  I'm working on some new videos and hope to have some up next week.
