Online Card Classes - Watercolour markers

So it is day 1 of the new Online Card Classes where the topic yet again is Watercolour. But this time it is about exploring mediums and today is all about watercolour markers. 

Today it was a total upside to be unemployed...lots and lots of time to get crafty :o)

I decided to try out Jennifer McGuire's use of markers to create a watercolour look combined with Debby Hughes' no-line colouring. 

Well, practice definitely makes perfect....and I need A LOT more practice! Haha


 I do not have many colours of Tim Holtz' Distress Markers so I have only used 4 colours for this card. It wasn't so easy to get the Dusty Concord to blend well with the Worn Lipstick.  Perhaps it is because I am using Strathmore Mixed Media paper?


I have used two images from Altenew's Golden Garden stamp set and used Antique Linen Distress Ink to stamp with. Reason was that I wanted to try out the no-line colouring which really gave me free hands to work the image. 


For the purple cardstock I have stamped with VersaMark ink to make the watermark pattern.

  4. This is so sensitive and the colors looks well blended . I really love the way you use different tone of color so smooth and "groovy". I'm also in this class and I just finished my first experiment. And now I wanna try another, because I'm not happy on the first one. Well, I have all night left.... lol
