Friday featured friend

I decided on Fridays to show you some great swaps or projects some of my fellow demos are doing.

Today, I am showing Jen Foley, her blog:http://www.inkspiredcreations.com/. She actually featured one of my swap cards. I am returning the favor, but actually wanted to show you this card she did, featuring a cool technique with markers.

The technique is to take a lighter color marker and dip it into a darker reinker. This gives a two-tone technique she achieved here. My first thought was, will you ruin your markers? And she assured me that it works like a blender pen and you just need to scribble it on the scrap paper until the color returns to normal. This goes in my ever-growing file of things I must try.
