How to use your Distress Markers to create watercolor Stamped Images



Hi Chris here today sharing a quick card I created using my Distress markers with Sin City Stamps!

Here is a list of my supplies

Sin City Stamps: Terri Sproul Wishes
Distress Markers (Ranger) - Pine needles, Shaded Lilac,  Pickled Raspberry, Abandoned Coral, Crushed Olive, Peacock Feathers, Black Soot
Watercolor Paper - Strathmore
Patterned Paper- Studio Calico
Punch-Martha Stewart, Close to My Heart
Ranger Archival Ink

I started by coloring on my stamps with my distress markers.


I then spritzed my stamp with water lightly and stamped onto my watercolor paper. I re-stamped the images without re-inking to create the illusion of flowers in the background.


I originally stamped my greeting directly on the card.  I wasn't paying attention and I stamped the image off kilter.


So I re-stamped the greeting onto my watercolor paper and used my scallop circle punch to punch out the greeting.  I matted the greeting onto another scallop punched circle and added to my card.  I matted the card onto the same paper I used for background punched circle.

I then colored the butterfly stamp and stamped onto the watercolor paper WITHOUT spritzing with water.  I actually did spritz with water and first and the Black Soot I used for the body bled all over the rest of the butterfly :(   So you can learn from my mistake.


I then used my Martha Stewart Butterfly punch to punch out the butterfly. I then stamped an additional greeting and butterfly on the inside of my card.

 Hope you enjoyed this project!
