Stampin' Write Markers: 3 Ways to Add Pizzazz to Your Projects.

If you have ever wondered why you should have markers in all of Stampin' Up!'s colors, let me share some techniques with you.

First, you can use the markers to ink your stamps.  And the great thing about this technique is that you can put more than one color on your stamp, like when you want to color flowers in one color and leaves in another on one stamp.  Here is a sample of this technique (and a link to the post HERE):

Second, you can color an image directly with your markers.  The colors are rich and bright.  Then you can smooth out the coloring with a Blender Pen.  The cardinal in this card is a sample of that technique:

Third, you can put some color from your marker on plastic to act as a palette, then pick up the color with a Blender Pen to apply to your image.  This gives you a little softer coloring, as seen in this picture:

A link to the post showing pictures of this technique in more detail is HERE:

I put off buying Stampin' Write Markers when I first started stamping because they seemed so expensive.  But once I started using them I realized what a great deal they are.  For $109.95 you get ALL the colors, and since you can use them in such a variety of ways, they have become one of the essentials in my stamping studio.  And if you want to start with a smaller investment, you can purchase Stampin' Write markers one color at a time, or one Color Collection set at a time.

    Great tutorial. I remember you showed the technique of putting color on plastic and using a blender pen at the class I took with you. But since then I had forgotten it so the tutorial was a great reminder. TFS!
