This first one uses markers so I'm putting it in as my reminder card for the CAS Mix Up Design Team, since this month's challenge is markers.
For my July 1st CAS Mix UpDesign Team card here, I inked up my stamp with markers and then stamped immediately. For this card, I inked up with Tombow markers and then spritzed with water to get a soft watercolour look.
I used my MISTI to make sure I got it stamped well. I made a mask of the stamp and covered my image and splattered some brown watered down Vintage Photo ink.
I trimmed it down to a square and added a very narrow brown border and the white heat embossed sentiment on brown. Two iridescent gemstones filled in the holes in the die cut sentiment label.
Staying in a similar colour range, I then tried inking up the stamp with watercolour crayons and spritzing with Tsukineko Shimmer Spritz spray instead of plain water.
Either I used less water or the watercolour crayons don't react as much with water, but I got a lot more detail and less of a watercolour look than I achieved in the first card.
I bordered it with a Spellbinders decorative border for the SU Ways to Use It challenge "Decorative Borders", used a shimmery copper card base, and die cut the sentiment from the same cs. Some iridescent sequins finished it off.
My third medium was gelatos - and I totally changed my colour scheme as I only have a few gelatos.
Again, I scribbled on the stamp with a few colours, spritzed with water, and stamped on watercolour paper. I prefer the results I got with the Tombow markers and the watercolour crayons to this.
I masked the butterfly, added a bit of pale blue text and some black splatters in the background, and made a white heat embossed sentiment. I bordered with black to tie in the sentiment. My embellishments are tiny flower sequins.
My favourite of the three is the first one - I love the watercolour look I got from using the Tombow markers. How about you?
