AECP - Magical Markers Techniques.
So what did I do? First off I used my ruler and the R217 Velvet marker to make the frame around my panel. Next was to make the splatters. - How you ask? Well it's quite easy. Scribble some maker onto a craft sheet and spritz with Isopropyl Alcohol. Quickly use a stippling brush to pick up and flick the colour onto the card.
My final technique was again to scribble some of the markers onto the craft mat and spritz with the Isopropyl Alcohol and then taking some glossy card stock, smooshing it on the mat. This give an amazing watercolour look.
I was very impressed with the idea of doing this for backgrounds. My next step was to stamp a flower from the Wallpaper Art stamp set onto the pink piece. (actually was the Velvet ink but the diluting with the IA makes it softer) I added clear embossing over the stamping and carefully used the heat gun to set. I fussy cut it out.
I added a leaf from the Wallpaper Arts set with some Industrial Diamond ink and a sentiment from the Leaf Canopy set. I don't have a small Hello from Altenew so cut one from another die I have. A few pink sequins and I called it a day.
I learnt so much from Sara and this class. Alcohol Markers can be used for so many different techniques and ideas other than straight colouring. This class was excellently presented and I can highly recommend it.
I am entering this into the Anything Goes challenge at The Flower Challenge.
