I used a no line colouring technique and I stamped my image with light grey ink rather than the usual black. Next, I used pink markers from Sunshine Valley Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set F and green colours from Tropical Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set E to colour the floral elements in.

To finish the card off, I used Garden Harmony 3D Embossing Folder for the background.

dear friend

I started by using 3D embossing folder to create my background. Then I stamped a floral image and used markers from Rock Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set D and Tropical Garden Artist Alcohol Markers Set E to colour it in. My last step was to die cut it and add the sentiment. I attached all together with a circle frame.
