    Wonderful video and card! I like the format of no upper or lower margins on the finished card…an entirely different overall look. TFS

  2. Gah, so unbelievably stunning yet easy! I don’t think I even own a versamark marker anymore. :-/
    So beautiful!!!

  3. Such a great technique! Lots of different bits to try. 🙂

  4. Beautiful card, Darlene. Love the technique, and how you colored the flowers 🙂

  5. Fabulous card and technique!

  6. Very pretty card. I always enjoy your videos.

  7. Wow, Wow, Wow! What great technique and beautiful results!! 🙂

  8. I look forward to Wed. and the talent you share. Have you tried this technique using Inktense pencils instead of the distress pens?

    Darlene, I love how you made your flowers stand out and also the sentiment…love the way you colored and embossed too, thanks.

  14. I’ve had one of those versamark pens for a while…now I have some inspiration to use it! 🙂

  15. Julie Craig says:

    Love, Love this card, you do such an amazing job water coloring this flowers, which is my absolute favorite way to add color to my images, this stamp set, Fabulous Flourettes is one of my favorite SU sets, (I can’t remember at the moment if they discontinued it or not). What I haven’t tried yet is the Versa marker, I have the pads and re-inkers but not the marker, I think it’s a wonderful tool, just in case you don’t get even coverage on your images with the pad. Thank you so much for another wonderful video. It must be in the SU catalog, I’ve never seen it there so I’m going to look for it.
    Have a wonderful rest of the week.

      Actually Maria, SU doesn’t carry the Versamarker anymore! I think that’s a new development with this year’s catalog. I have a link to Ellen Hutson in the supplies section.

  17. Darlene, this is a fabulous technique with magnificent results. I love how you add shadow and details and make it look so realistic and simple to do!

  18. Lynda M says:

    Love this technique. Can’t wait to try it. Beautiful card!

  19. Janice stone says:

    Just beautiful. Now to just start a project. Wish you were here for a personal class thanks for sharing

  20. Darlene, I want to order one of the Stampamagis (sp). Did you get it from the Stampin Up catalog and if so, where about is it located? Browsed thru the online catalog, but didn’t find it. Help!! Thank you.

  21. This is really a COOL technique! Can’t wait to try it!

  22. Hi Darlene! I love…love love.. It! I don’t know how you use that blending tool so well, I have tried and tried and I get all sorts of stuff wrong, the square lines, big splotches of ink in spots!! I have gone back and watched a ton of your videos where you’ve done that technique and I just can’t seem to get it right! I just love your cards! Looks like I have another Stpin Up stamp set on my must have list! Thanks so much for sharing your talent and creations! Do you have an Instagram account?


    • Darlene DeVries says:

      Thank you Shaughn! No, I haven’t gotten on Instagram yet. My tween daughter had it for awhile and it was a disaster, so I’m trying to stay away!!

  23. A lovely card Darlene ..

  24. Casey Thrush says:

    Love it! Was your card base 4.25×5.5?

  25. Oh my goodness….that is just wonderful! Love that technique!!! So gorgeous, Darlene. Thanks for sharing!!!
