Happy Turtle Tuesday!

This one was a quick and easy one that I did with my new Best Friends Paper Pack from CTMH that arrived today. Nothing fancy on it – just a bit of fun - and of course a turtle!
I have a friend who is starting a brand new job today - so this little turtle is a "Good Luck" to her! Hope it goes well!

Hollyhock Turtle:
Card dimensions 5 ½ w x 4 ¼ h


Materials: CS –Garden Green, Hollyhock (CTMH); Paper – PP: Best Friends (CTMH), Accademia (Fabriano); Ink –Black StazOn; Stamp – Flower Turtle (Inky Antics); Markers - Tombow markers, Blush, Hollyhock (CTMH), Punches – Giga Scalloped circle, Nega Circle (Marvvy), waterbrush, Ribbon – Hollyhock Oraganza (CTMH), Garden Green small brads (CTMH), paper piercer/mat (Making Memories), Sakura Stardust pen.

I used the CTMH markers for the pink and noticed that they don't blend as well as as Tombow markers on the watercolour paper - interesting experiment. Certain colours blend well, but not the Hollyhock for sure. I think I will try the CTMH markers on heavy CS instead of watercolour paper to see the results of that. Watercolouring is all about experimenting - so don't be afraid to do that!

Until next time, have a great day!
