TechniqueTuesday : Stamping with Markers!

My project for today's share is an altered notebook.  I used the new "Deck the Halls" designer series paper  from our NEW Holiday Mini catalog.  I used some ribbon and the Christmas tree from a new stamp set called "Paisley Prints".  I colored the Christmas tree using Cherry Cobbler and Always Artichoke stamp and write markers and stamped them on crumb cake  card stock and cut them out.  Below are some directions on stamping with markers.

1) Use a Stampin' Write marker to apply color to the stamp. Ink only the part of the image you need.

2) Add other colors if desired.

3) Breathe onto the inked image to re-moisten the ink before stamping onto paper.


For a more muted, watercolor look, spray a fine mist of water on the stamp instead of breathing on it.
