This week the Design Team at Blockheads is showcasing Artistic Outpost Stamps---now available at the Blockheads store. And, if that weren't enough, we are also showing fun ways to use your watercolor markers. My projects are stamped and/or colored with Distress Markers from Ranger. I have three projects and lots of pictures, so I have decided to break it down into two posts. So, let's get going!! I used one of the images from the set called "A Lovely Day".
I used the Distress Markers to stamp the image. I applied the markers directly onto the stamp and stamped on Solar White CS (Neemah) NOTE: The Solar White CS is great with the Distress Markers. If you want to color in an image with the markers, this smooth CS works really well and you will get a nice image without streaks. See the photo below for the colors I used directly on the stamp and how the stamped image looks. I love how this turned out!!
I wanted to add more color, so I colored onto the stamped image. This is how I added more coloring: Apply marker to a Craft Sheet or an Acrylic Block. Pick up the color with an Aqua Flow Brush. You can see the Tattered Rose marker in the photo below. See the ink on the craft sheet?
I did not stop there and added even more color using the same method.
Don't waste that ink on the Craft Sheet!! Grab some scraps of CS and press them into the ink and make some beautiful water colored pieces to use for layering and backgrounds!!! And here is a close up of the finished card. Notice that the pink rectangle of CS is one of the pieces I made with the left over ink on the Craft Sheet.
I also am entering this project into the Artistic Outpost July Referral Program---Anything goes.
