Stamp School #3: Using Markers to Stamp

Hi friends! Today we are going to use our water-based markers to stamp. You can use any water-based (watercolor) markers you have, even the kids crayolas but you will get betterĀ results with a stampers brush tipped marker but use what you have! Today’s video is sponsored by, and features stamps from ArtNeko (formally About Art Accents) they specialize with Asian themed stamps, papers and embellishments and their designs have a timeless elegance that never goes out of style. ArtNeko has a special for Stamp School attendees, 10% off ANY order or free shipping on orders over $50, which ever is greater, they will refund you the discount if you mention The Frugal Crafter when you order.The stamps I am using today are from the Marine 1 set.

All you need is white cardstock, markers and adhesive. You might want to try stamping on glossy photo paper if you have any and you also might want a small paintbrush and water if you need to fix any stamped areas. Let’s get on to this weeks lesson on Using markers to stamp!

Video!

Here is a look at the difference between stamping on the glossy photo paper and the plain cardstock. The photo paper is on the bottom. Be careful using clear stamps on photo paper, do not leave the stamp on the paper longĀ or the paper might stick to the stamp for good!
