POD & Stamper's Big Brush Markers
Today's card features all Purple Onion Designs stamps including Stems and Grass Set, Vintage 2011 Calendar, and Handwritten Holiday. The colorful grass and stems on this card were stamped using Faber-Castell Stamper's Big Brush Markers. I've had a couple questions about using these markers. To get the best impression you need to work fast when coloring your stamp. I also dab my stamp lightly with a baby wipe before coloring (helps the stamp stay wet longer). You will get a gorgeous watercolor effect. If you want your stamped impression to be more solid, go back and fill in/color your stamped image on the paper with your Big Brush Marker or PITT Artist Pen (great for small details and also to add shading). Next, I stamped the calendar stamp using Pumice Stone Distress Ink, removing some portions of the ink from the stamp with a baby wipe before stamping. Finally, I added Peeled Paint Distress Ink along the bottom and edges of the stamped panel.
