Hey Friends. Lately, I have been in a touch of a creating rut, so to help me shift out of it, I have been heading back to basics. Long before I played with alcohol markers, I used watercolor markers. And while the quality of the product I have used has improved over the years, I still find some great joy playing with these watercolor pens. However, strangely, I don’t use them as much as I should in my card making. So today, to help beat the rut of crafting, I created a fun card using three different brands of watercolor markers and a Scrapberry Basik stamp set called Basik’s New Adventure available at White Rose Crafts.
I stamped out the image and sentiment from the Basik’s New Adventure stamp set in some waterproof black ink. Then I colored in the image with my Kuretake Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens.
I created the clouds free hand and then created the granulated feel with my tomboy markers.
Finally, I created the grass using some Tim Holtz Distress Markers.
