Hey there, crafters! Today I am back with my watercolor markers and my Blender Pen. I had first shared a card with this technique here, and I thought it was about time to give it another try. I like the amount of control the Blender pen gives me when working with watercolor, a medium which is not easy to predict by nature.
I started out by stamping my images with MFT Black Licorice ink on my watercolor paper. As always, I used my Stamp-A-Ma-Jig with my rubber stamps because this little tool allows me to place my images precisely despite not being able to look through the rubber.
For coloring I used my Distress Markers, but I am sure you can use many different watercolor markers for this. You simply put down some color and immediately blend it out so you won’t end up with nasty lines that have dried and cannot be moved anymore. If you want to add multiple layers (I always do), remember to let the previous layer dry completely before going back in. The tips of the markers and Blender pen easily damage paper, especially when it’s still wet.
For a finishing touch, I added glossy accents on top of the balloon and hat, and a frame from a die by Pretty Pink Posh.
I hope you liked the project and got inspired. Thanks for stopping by today!
