Stamping with Markers

Kath at the Moxie Fab World Blog has challenged us to "incorporate stamping with markers in an innovative way."

This is the first time I've ever stamped COMPLETELY with markers, no inks whatsoever were used.  Thankfully I just received all of the new Hero Hues Momento dual tip markers, and I used the darkest colors from each set, both on the wood parade stamp and also on the clear sentiment stamp.   I started with the October Afternoon background paper, and then tried to match the colors there.  Markers certainly give you unlimited options with colors!  Give this a try - Kath is giving away a set of 36 Copic Ciao markers - WOW!!

supplies:  Hero Hues folkiage layering papers for card base PS622, October Afternoon Fly a Kite dps, brown cardstock, Hero Arts G5469 It's a Parade, CL495 Live Life, Hero Hues Dual Tip Markers MW016, MW017, MW018, MW019, MW020, twine, Hero Arts CH176 Spring Fancy Felt flower button

  4. Wow, this turned out beautifully, Lin! So full of bright colors and it has a wonderfully, playful feel to it! Love your explanation on Flickr about memories of your boys playing in the neighborhood. I have some of the same fun memories of my own boys. Thanks for sharing!
