We Go Together Like...

Hi guys! Feeling great on this gorgeous Saturday morning and I realized I hadn't participated at all this month in the Some Odd Girl Linky party for October! Honestly, I think I have birthday brain, this is the first birthday of mine I've been excited about in years so it's kind of taking over my thoughts the entire month! I also began getting presents early (hubby found a great deal on something I've wanted for forever!) so that didn't help the birthday brain! What was this dream gift you ask? TA-DA

The entire 49 piece set of Tim Holtz Distress markers!!!!  I've been practicing with them since they came in the mail and OMG *swoon* Now don't get me wrong, they can't replace my first love, copic markers, but they definitely run a close second! I struggled with the right about of water and ruining a few pieces of paper but I'm learning fast. I would like to try a few different types of paper, so far I seem to get the best results on bazzill heavy weight card shoppe cardstock in the color marshmallow as long as I don't over saturate the paper. Now what goes together better than distress markers and water? SOG stamps and me? Milk and cookies? How about all of the above, in a cute quick CAS card using the SOG clear stamp set Milk n Cookies, water colored with my distress markers and all ready to join in the October Linky party

SOG Milk n Cookies

I tried to keep this card simple, using only a few enamel dots and some doodling around the edges with a white gel pen. Normally I hate doing CAS cards but the milk n cookie are so adorable, they don't really need much embellishment or DP. Love how this turned out and I can't wait to use my markers on more of my SOG clear stamps. Ugh I wish I had a laser printer so that I could also color my digis as well but all I have is an inkjet for now, *sigh* dare to dream right? See you guys around
