Belli Challenge #72 - water based markers
I had done this card over a month ago so it would be ready for today's Belli Challenge. I've been recovering from surgery, so I was unable to work on a Peachy Keen colored image for you today. To see what the other Belli Girls have created with their Peachy Keen images, please check out the Belli Blog. They have created some adorably CUTE cards with these sweet images.
Since I knew today's challenge was to create something using water based markers (no Copics!), I picked a solid stamp. I love inking up solid stamps with water based markers, huffing on them, and then pressing them down on cardstock. It's quick and easy, and the results are gorgeous. It's fun to blend two shades of a similar color right there on the stamp.
I hope you pick up your old markers and give them some love. Use them to color an image, use them to ink up a rubber stamp, or scribble them on a craft mat, mist them, and smoosh cardstock on it for a neat background. Pull those markers out and have fun!
