Technique Tuesday

Today's technique is misting with markers. This technique uses waterbased markers to add multiple colors and a watercolored look to an image.

With stamp rubber side up, color the image with a marker. It’s helpful to start with the lightest color first. Continue to color your image with other colored markers until the entire image is colored. Spray the image with water mist bottle. The more you spray, the more the ink will run when you stamp. Hint: Hold the stamp in one hand and the misting bottle in the other, with hands about 12" apart. Spray a couple of times.You can also spray water into the air first, then move your image through to make sure the stamp doesn’t get too wet. Stamp image on cardstock.

This was a new technique for me and I love the look of this. I do like how the images looks like I did some watercoloring.
