Here are a few cards I made for my technique article. They are quick and easy plus they give you an awe moment when you pull the stamp away from the paper. Love it!

This one is done with Tim Holtz Distress inks (Walnut Stain, Faded Jeans ans Weathered Wood). Just ink the stamp, spritz with water and stamp onto regular white card stock. That's it!!!
This card was made with markers, I colored the stamp, spritzed with water and stamped. I like markers for this stamp because I can color individual flowers and stems precisely.

Remember to use water base markers like Marvey, Tsukineko, Tombow, etc.. Markers such as Copics, PrismaColor and Sharpie's are permanent, they won't work. You can tell by smelling them (water base has no odor).

Here's a video I did for the Hero Blog using markers.

Hope you enjoy!

So cool...the best part is that you don't have to rush 'cause the ink might dry. You can take your time and color it carefully. Thanks Shari.. great ideas and I must say that if that mister/sprayer bottle was at my house, one of my two little boys would have found it by now and his brother would be soaking wet!
