Smiley from Hey y’all! It’s hard for me to believe that it’s already Thursday . . . I’m wondering were my time/days have gone.

A couple of weeks ago the Ranger Distress Markers arrived at my door.  I’ve been playing around with them, mainly water coloring.  My first instinct is that I don’t like them for that.  So far I haven’t gotten excellent results using them to watercolor images . . . definitely not like my Tombow markers.  The Distress Markers don’t seem to float with the water the way the Tombow do.  I’ll keep experimenting with this one though.

However!  I do love them to stamp with.   They are definitely excellent to color your stamps with, give them a little mist of water and then stamp the image.  A few years ago before all these alcohol markers became so popular, this was one of my favorite techniques.   SO, while playing with my NEW toys, I pulled out one of my all time favorite stamps (Penny Black Blush) and made this card.


I used Peeled Paint, Fired Brick, Aged Mahogany and Frayed Burlap markers on the image, misted it with water and then stamped on slightly damp watercolor paper.  I have a video tutorial on this technique that you can find here.

After the image had dried, the background stamp from Studio 490 – Live and Mark Art, was stamped over the flower in Old Paper Distress Ink.  Hopefully you’ll be able to see it in this photo.  I know it’s there, so of course I see it!


The ribbon is white seam binding that I dyed with Fired Brick and Aged Mahogany.  (Tutorial here)  The image was die cut/embossed with Spellbinders™ Classic Ovals, mounted on Lacey Ovals and then placed over Labels Twenty-Five.

Well, that’s all for me . . . thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!
