clean color sweetie

this might be my last clean color/catherine scanlon card this week but i can pretty much guarantee that i will be using both LOTS! i love the vibrant clean color markers and i'm determined to learn everything about them. and i think catherine scanlon's stamps are the perfect combination of beauty & whimsy.
i started by stamping "sweetie" using the essentials by ellen basic alpha. 
next i used a 021 clean color marker to color the "hello" stamp, leaving out the exclamation point. clean color markers are not great for direct-to-stamps if you want a crisp image but if you are planning to no-line color, they are awesome.

i used the same marker-to-stamp technique with my strawberry, leaving out the second strawberry image on the stamp.

then i started coloring with the stem, adding in the little bit of missing lines.
finally i colored my strawberry, using a waterbrush to blend.

thanks for popping in! i hope you have a fabulous weekend!

xo,
carly
