  1. Oh my gosh Marika, how gorgeous is this card!!! I love your technique of coloring with markers and pencils, I love doing this as you get the best texture and shadows this way. The petals of your flowers look alive, you can almost smell the aroma from this beautiful blooms.
    I've been saving some money on my crafting piggy bank I have in my craft room, to buy the Faber Castell Polychromos, I'm almost there!! I'm getting the 60 piece set, I've read that getting the 72 piece is really not necessary.
    Thank you so much for sharing this amazing video Marika, as always, you totally amaze me with your impeccable coloring skills.
    Oh, and your paper snipping skills too!! I thought you cut this flowers with a die until I saw you doing this with your scissors, simply outstanding!!!
    Big Hugs.
