Have you ever used your water based markers to stamp? It is easy, quick and fun and look how elegant:
I used stamps from About Art Accents for both of these cards. The Deer image is from this plate and I simply colored the rubber with my Tombow markers, breathed on the rubber to moisten the ink and stamped. Thats it! a bit of gold cord and you are done!
If you want a simpler technique on this one I used an olive-green inkpad to ink up the holly then used a Q-Tip to wipe off the ink from the branch and berries and filled them in with markers, oh so simple! BTW all of the Christmas sheets of stamps are 20% off! That’s like 28 stamps for less than $20 and they are all good designs!
Give this technique a try! Till next time happy crafting ;)
