The new release of Art Impressions stamps is a great opportunity to check out some marker sets and compare them for colors – so that’s what I’m up to today! There’s a little bit of technique in here, but lots is about whether you want bright colors or more vintage or natural colors in your art.

It’s always good to create a practice page – whatever AI watercolor stamps you get, stamp them a bunch and play around with what colors and arrangements of the flowers you like best, and how much water is appropriate for your style, marker brand, and paper.
These two sets of 10, by the way, aren’t Tombow’s picks – they’re by Bonnie Krebs, the owner/designer at Art Impressions!
In each of my finished cards I also created multicolor sentiments using a markers and the MISTI – note that these Tombow markers may discolor clear stamps a little, but they’re perfectly usable even with color.
For my storage, I use these plastic cases….I break up sets but keep like-minded images together….flowers by approximate size, containers, buildings, bridges, fences, etc. It helps to know which case to go to when I’m doing each portion of a card.
