testing action twinmarkers again

Yesterday I told you about my discovery of  Twinmarker alcohol markers at a nearby Action store!

I stamped this ginormous but gorgeous stamp (had to have but hadn't used yet - you know that kind?) onto some Neenah CS and pulled out the colors that most spoke to me from my new markers and just colored them in.

Now I'd stamped the image off the edge of the CS scrap. But cheapo me, couldn't bring myself to then throw it away after I'd colored it. So I came up with this design idea. I'm calling it a variation on spotlight stamping.

I wouldn't call these markers the greatest on earth. They have only a broad and a fine tip. There are not many light colors. But they're nice and juicy. And I like the color tones. And, as you can tell, I'm not the greatest colorer, so I'm satisfied. I've decreased my price per marker average ;)

Added a coat of Wink of Stella to all the colored images before fussy cutting them and glueing them to a B/W stamped image creating this one layer card. The inside reads "to call you friend". The sentiments in the stamp set are gorgeous too. Just sayin'.


Come by on Friday. I've used this beautiful stamp again for some real spotlight stamping.

I'm playing at:
Craft Stamper - July Take it Make it AG
Paper Players - #402 (I'm thinking I've accentuated the negative space around my image with the simple stamped image, but I may be wrong)
