Inspired by Jennifer McGuire

I'm getting itchy fingers as I have not crafted for a while and I have so many new stamps, inks and dies to try out. I have been dying to try out my new Tim Holtz Distress Markers. The current challenge at A Blog Named Hero is to make a card inspired by a Hero Arts Artist. One of my inspirations is Jennifer McGuire and she tested these markers before most of us could even get our hands on it!  This is my card using all the colours in the pack (excluding black and white) inspired by Jennifer's card. The card was white embossed with the HA/Studio Calico lattice stamp and coloured with Distress markers. The card was sprayed with Perfert pearls mist. I love the marbled effects when the inks reacted with the water. The beauty about the lattice stamp is that each colour is contained within each pattern, so there is no bleeding. I added white embossed vellum flowers to the card so that I can submit this card for the Hero Arts Paper Flowers Challenge. I'm also submitting this card to the Moxie Fab World Card Challenge!
