Watercolouring with markers
This is the technique my team is looking at this week & we used one of my favourite stamps, the delightful wee girl from Summer by the Sea.
Anne Marie from my team has also also been looking at watercolouring with some amazing differences using the watercolour crayons & watercolour paper and comparing to Whisper White.
What I love about using markers is it's FAST ( & you got to love that!). It's just a matter of stamping your image with Stazon (as we get really wet) then running around the image with the marker pen - normally inside the line & then using an aquapainter to spread & blend - WOW!
Stamp set/s: Summer by the Sea, Small Script (retired)
Card stock: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa, Watercolour paper, Enchante DP (retired)
Ink: Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Sage Shadow, Close to Cocoa, Stazon Black
Other: Aquapainter, Kraft tafetta ribbon, silver brads, Dimensionals, word window punch, sponging, Pretties flower, SU! markers (same as the ink colours)
Once again the colours are chosen because of the colours in the designer paper - makes it so easy!

UPDATE 10/12/08 Kristina's colour challenge this week uses 4 of the 5 colours I've used here (gotta love that when I haven't really started on my Christmas cards) and I don't own Bordering Blue as yet.
So anyone poppin' in thanks for calling by!
