Stamping With Markers

Do you remember seeing this card available as a Make N Take this week? It's made with A Muse and Bazzill papers, Unity stamps, and Marvy markers... wait. Markers? 

That's right! Stamping with markers rather than an ink pad allows you to achieve multiple colors without too much fuss. Today I'm sharing a quick tutorial on how it's done!

You'll first need a surface to stamp on. You could create squares, circles, or any other shape. I chose Spellbinders Labels One Dies. 

Gather together your stamp and markers. Marvy markers are my go-to product for this technique, but I recommend trying it with whatever you have on hand. 

This step is simple... Color your stamp! This is a great technique for floral stamps... Color your petals with one color and the stem with another. For this example, the outer edge of the apple was colored green, the heart red, and the center and stem brown. 

Behold, a nice, multicolor image!  

To create color consistency, I inked up the sentiment with the same brown marker rather than using an ink pad in a different brown. 

Gather the final components of your card, adhere together, and ta-da! You've got a card to send off to a special someone. 

There's still a few days left for you to make this exact card at Creations Galore in Green Bay. For more details on our weekly Make N Takes, visit this link
