Hi everyone, Addicted to Stamps have their second 'Make Your Mark' challenge this week to make a project using markers.
It was nice to use some stamps I haven't used for quite a long time, and this solid image oriental lady stamp by A Stamp in the Hand is perfect to use with the technique of using markers as ink pads!
I find white glossy card is the best to use for this technique of colouring directly onto your stamp using dye/water based markers. After stamping the main image you can then scribble a little ink onto a non-porous surface (I use a large white ceramic tile) and fill in any gaps or highlight areas with a small stencil brush. I also made the background this way and stamped some little oriental characters and bamboo. Handmade paper was used as a backing before mounting onto black.
