Stampin' Technique with markers and clear blocks

This technique is fun, easy and gives original results every time.  All you need is a large clear block, a spritzer and marker pens.

This is what you do

  • using the lightest to the darkest colours, colour the block in shades of your choice. I've used Soft Sky first and then Crumb Cake for the sand.  
  • hold the block over things that will cope with a little water spritz and spray over the ink with water
  • place the block, ink side down, on your card stock (whisper white here) and allow the ink pools to go onto the card you'll see through the block how the look changes and when the ink has transferred to the card
  • allow to dry if damp
  • stamp images, sentiments of your choice over the top.  I've use the fun deck chair from Colourful Season and a simple sentiment from the same set.  
  • I've added two strips of Real Red card stock, looped linen thread and white accents to finish the look.  

The stamp set has some matching dies which can be used to add other accents or for a more feminine look a scallop border in Real Red rather than the stripes. 

Please share your makes using this technique I'd love to share on my blog. 

More soon Zx
