Watercolouring with Markers
Did you know that you can create a watercolour effect with markers?
The card above features some watercolouring using markers, i have also given the flowers in the pot a glossy effect using crytsal effects (i have only just begun to discover the possibilities of this great product!). I finished off the flowers with half pearls from the pretties kit. Now i just have to find a greeting to stamp onto the pot.
In 2 weeks time, my stamp club will meet and we will be working with this technique. Stamp Club members get to explore techniques and projects that are generally not possible in normal workshops due to the time needed to create the make and takes. My current Stamp Club meets every 2 month and each member takes a turn of being the hostess and collecting hostess benefits. If you are interested in hearing more about stamp clubs then contact me and i can send you some information.
