Watercolor Marker Tips!

Happy Sunday folks! I was over at the Creative Belli Challenge blog the other day and they issued a challenge to use water-based markers in a design, I have lots of these that I have forgotten about since discovering Bic mark-its so I thought it would be a good time to show them some love:

I made this card with a die cut from Creative Cuts and More and new Halloween stamps from the rubber cafe called Pumpkin Face Mix and Match, take a look at this set:

Yep they are clear! you can mix and match the faces for tons of variety and they are high quality clear meaning they stick well to the acrylic block and they hold the ink well! BTW I made the “magic Mesh” by swiping orange acrylic paint over drywall mesh I found at the hardware store. If you stick, creative cuts and more it to cardstock first you will have fun pattern paper after to peel up the mesh!

Watercolor marker tips:

1 Use waterproof ink to stamp your image or use pigment ink and emboss it in clear before you used the markers to prevent ink smears.

2. Work quickly: I colored the pumpkins yellow, added some light orange shading then dark orange around the edges.

3. My favorite way to use waterbased markers id to color on the rubber and stamp. A great way to may your stamp collection more versatile without buying more ink-pads! I used that technique on this project.

Thanks all for today, have a great Sunday and till next time Happy Crafting!
