Hello Everyone! I have two cards to share with you today and I am super excited! They are both pretty much identical, use the same technique and stamp set, but I changed one thing – the paper. I really wanted to experiment and see which paper, watercolor or heavy weight cardstock, I liked the results better on when I used the marker stamping technique. You can watch the full tutorial down below and see which results you like better!
Like I said both cards are pretty much identical and use the same stamp set, Vintage Ornaments from Joy Clair. This is the perfect set to experiment and play around with, plus make some beautiful Christmas cards!
I also used my Arteza Brush markers for this technique and they work beautifully, but any watercolor markers you may have on hand will also work great! The one thing I wanted to do different for these two cards was use different papers for this technique. I wanted both cards to be identical and stamped identical, so I used my MISTI. This tool isn’t necessary, but does help with this technique! I have to say, I like both results, but my favorite is the white cardstock. You have to be careful and use heavy weight because you are adding water, but I like the blend and the way the color sinks into the paper.
Be sure to watch the video tutorial above to see how I put these two cards together, but as well as the outside, I also decorated the inside! I used one of my favorite Christmas sets from Joy Clair, the 3D Poinsettia Stamp Set (be sure to watch for a few upcoming video tutorials for this set). The inside doesn’t have to be too involved, but even adding these few stamped images on the inside really makes all the difference!
I hope you all enjoyed my little experiment, and also the video tutorial. If you are interested in any of the supplies I used today, they are all listed and linked below! Until next time, Happy Crafting!!
