This is my first practice run with one of the popular techniques, simply inking directly to your rubber stamp and misting with water, stamp on water color paper and Wala! Easy Peasy!
Hmm, a different look for sure, this is my First Generation stamped image. And let me add that I'm using a Stamp N Write Marker collection in Baja Breeze, Night of Navy, Lucky Limeade and Old Olive. Class is suggesting the Tim Holtz Distress Inks in Markers or pads and let me tell ya! Don't you think they're on my Wish List!
Now I absolutely had to sit on my hands not to add more to this one layer card like I normally would. A little linen thread wouldn't hurt anybody would it!! Looking closely you can see water color splats in my blue and green ink. That was lots of fun, I do enjoy a distressed look and to create this I took a few ink pads and rubbed them on an acrylic block, spritz with water and picked up that color with a paint brush. Tapping the brush against my finger allowed them to drop in spatter throughout the card. Way cool.
So there you have it, a single layer card attached to a Baja Breeze card base. These markers certainly reacted with water but I wonder if other colors would be more intense or if it's very necessary to own the Distress Markers. We'll see. It's just practice, and a great time in the Studio! Have a great day Stampers!
