Hey Friends.  Lately, I have been in a touch of a creating rut, so to help me shift out of it, I have been heading back to basics.  Long before I played with alcohol markers, I used watercolor markers.  And while the quality of the product I have used has improved over the years, I still find some great joy playing with these watercolor pens.  However, strangely, I don’t use them as much as I should in my card making.  So today, to help beat the rut of crafting, I created a fun card using three different brands of watercolor markers and a Scrapberry Basik stamp set called Basik’s New Adventure available at White Rose Crafts.

Finally, I created the grass using some Tim Holtz Distress Markers.

What do you do when you find yourself in a rut?  Do you have a go to technique or product you like to play with?  Let me know in the comments below, mainly so I don’t feel alone as I work my way through this rut.

And Finally make sure you run over to White Rose Crafts and check out all the new stuff they have going on over there.
