Welcome to Week Two of the August Edition of Creative Belli Challenge!
Lately, everyone seems to be jumping onto the Copics boat. Alcoholism is on the rise!
Start with good quality watercolor paper (cheap, you can get it at most craft supply stores, or through your SU! pusher - I mean dealer!). Stamp it with a non-water reactive ink. I used StazOn black, and embossed it with clear embossing powder because I like the shine.
Spritz your paper with water until water puddles. Then quickly touch your markers to the pooled water in the area you want colored. The paper will do the rest, acting like a sponge to suck the color into its pores. Repeat until you are satisfied. You can let it dry and repeat if the color is too pastel for your liking.
So - now you know one more way to use those basic water-based markers. For a fun variation - try this same technique with your water-based reinkers. Ranger Ink distressing inks are water reactive, so play with those too! Have FUN!
