Archeology Contest

Recently on Gingerwood Bulletin Board, we were challenged to use supplies that we've had for at least 5 years and not used.  I had a lot of this, but gave away some of them.  This are the items I chose to use.
These are Marvy Metallic markers.  I also used the water Mini Mister and black glossy cardstock.  I scribbled the markers onto the black cardstock and misted it with water, both before and after applying.  I also placed a sheet of plastic wrap over the wet ink and smoothed it out a bit, then allowed it dry.  When I removed the plastic wrap, this card appeared.
I stamped the sentiment on the image and embossed with gold embossing powder, then mounted it on glossy gold cardstock and a white card base.


  1. I am in love with this card. Wish you lived closer to give me a demonstration

  2. I love this look too, Velda. The convention is coming to Portland Memorial Day weekend (and one day only this year) so I think I'll invest in some of these markers.
