This blog post was un support of a business that closed in 2020 – Make it Crafty. Bummer!!! Her stamps were intricate and delicate —and great for coloring! These gorgeous new flowers are available in both digital and rubber and the rubber stamps also come with a hand written sentiment, which of course you could use between all the different flowers.

I’ve created a video for my card, of course; the theme for the month’s challenge at MIC is watercolor, so I tried something different – using my markers to fully mimic a Copic watercolor splashy wishy washy spattery background! I’m having a blast finding watercolor paintings on the web and studying them for more textures and splash types that I can recreate with markers.

Here’s a closeup of the copic watercolor art…just look at how all those colors layer over each other to create entirely new shades of purples, blues and greens. And going over it with a creamy color? That just makes it all vintage! Coolio!

There are a number of different ways to create a watercolor look, so stay tuned on my blog to see more of them coming up – just do a search for Copic watercolor in the search bar in the sidebar of my blog. Some are easier, some are harder, but hopefully there will be a technique you can tackle!
