doing it to death: card-making at it's finest...more cards for mom

i have so much paper that i decided to use up the smaller collections that i have.  this is the third set.  see previous sets below this post.  all i have left is small pieces of the plain paper which i will throw into my basic grey folder.  this is "lemonade" collection, and i forgot to use the matching brads and buttons.  i have some of the 12" x 12" papers, so i will use them with that.

doing it to death: card-making at it's finest...more cards for mom

can you find the one that is upside down this time?
it never fails.  or maybe i wanted it that way...yeah...that's it.

i am using up paper from small collections that i have.  with this set, i used everything but a few tiny schnibbles that weren't worth saving.

more cards for mom

the one on the bottom right is upside down.  gee whiz!

i think i am finally done with this paper.  it was nice when i started, and now it is over.  tomorrow, i will tackle another collection.  this is why i usually buy only one of each papers i use.  there have been rare occurrences when i buy more.  for example, the **entire** (or what i found of it) collection of "dear lizzy", made by american crafts: paper, fabric paper and ribbons.  there are so many different products that i don't think i will get bored.  here is one to give you an idea:

"loads of love": su!

this is the first time i have played with this set.

coloring technique: i used my marvy markers. i colored onto plastic, then i used a blender pen to pick up the color and put it onto the water color paper. i could layer the color to vary it's intensity. this is the first time i have ever used this technique, and it won't be the last!

i have created this for the stamping with markers challenge in the moxie fab world. you can play too by following this link: and upload your projects by midnight EST on Monday, March 14.
