(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).
I stamped the image from Daisy Bouquet in Acorn Versafine Clair ink on Bristol paper. Then I taped it to a board and starting painting using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers and a size 4 round watercolor brush.
NOTE: Be sure to watch the video above for the exact marker colors I used.
Because I planned to white heat emboss the greeting over the top of the flowers, I made sure to build up lots of color and a dramatic background. I did this so that the white greeting would be legible. It would have gotten lost is the area behind the words were lighter.
