Fall Thank You Card

Here is a tip to make coloring go fast! You can ink up your stamp with your lighter ink color, then go over part of the image with a darker color Stampin' Write Marker. For this card, ink up the wreath image with the More Mustard ink pad.  Next, color over some of the leaves with an Always Artichoke marker.   Since Always Artichoke is a darker color, it will cover up the More Mustard ink.  Hope you found this tip helpful!
