Faux Water Color Technique with Washable Markers

Hi Crafters!! Here is a faux water color technique that I love to do using the washable markers from Crayola and Cra-z-art (kids markers). These markers come in large sets of many colors and they are inexpensive. You may even have some of these hanging around the house if you have kids or grandkids.

The House Mouse image called, Candy Gram, by Stampendous was stamped with Ranger’s Archival Jet Black ink and colored in with the washable markers. Some areas that needed to be lighter, like the faces, the marker was scribbled onto a slick surface and picked up there with a wet aqua painter and applied to the stamped image for a softer variation of the marker color.
