This would be the perfect way to get you markers and some of the most versatile stamp sets in the catalogue. Greetings galore and Heartfelt thanks are two of my most used sets…..
The marvelous markers are odourless and dual-tipped – meaning they have a very fine journalling tip as well as a versatile brush tip which is great for colouring, watercolouring and direct to stamp work.
1. Use archival safe water-based dye ink
2. Have the two tips (fine and brush)
3. Come in four colour family packs that are perfectly matched to the other Stampin’ Up! lines
4. Are ideal for omitting portions of a stamped image or for using multiple colours on a single image.
5. Are fantastic at producing a speckled background of your colour choice using the new Colour Spritzer tool.
6. Can be used to water colour using the blender pens or aqua painter.
or………if you look at my card above, they have been used to colour vellum cardstock. The image , from seaside sketches, is inked up with Stazon and stamped onto the vellum and allowed to dry. The stamped image is then turned over and coloured (really quickly, I might add) with the marvelous markers on the back. This then gives a flawless, subtle colour effect which shows no stroke marks at all. This is a lovely effect .
The rest of the card is made by using ruby red cardstock and the ruby red marker which is spritzed to give it a tone on tone speckled effcect. The paper ribbon is made using old olive stamped with versamark using the swirl stamp from fresh fillers and then of course, a gorgeous selection of Prima flowers, secured using an old olive brad. Like the stitching? I do too, especially when it required no needles or thread!!! This is faux stitching, pulled off using the mat pack (THE best purchase for under $20) and the gorgeous and dense, white gel pen…….
