Tool Tip Tuesday

Today i am stuck in a hotel room and all i can do is miss my craft room and think about what tools i miss the most. At the top of the list are my Stampin' Write Markers. Why? You may be asking. Because they are just so versatile and a lot more inexpensive than most tools.

Did you know you can stamp with your markers? When you see those gorgeous cards online with all the multi-colored ink from a single stamp, its likely they used the Stampin' Write Markers directly on the stamp coloring it part by part with several different colored markers. I LOVE this particular use if the markers.

Another way to use Stampin' Write Markers is with a blender pen. Just touch the tips of the two pens together to "ink up" the blender pen tip then color your stamped image with the blender pen. Its like water coloring without the brush and water! It really lets you blend your color out creating a gradient effect quite easily and makes shading a cinch.

Also use Stampin' Write Markers with the Aqua Painter to watercolor your stamped images. Just scribble some ink onto your acrylic block, squeeze a bit of water through the brush to wet it, dab some of the water off then brush through the ink to pick it up and just start watercoloring.

Stampin' Write Markers come with two tips, a fat brush-like tip and a fine point tip. For best care store your markers horizontally to keep ink in both tips. Theres no need to replace your markers when the ink gets low. Use our reinkers to refill them easily. To refill just pull the fat nub carefully out of the barrel and drop a few drops of ink into the barrel. Then carefully put the nub back into the barrel. At this time, there are no nub replacements. A damaged nub is the only reason for marker replacement.

If you are interested in picking up a set of markers message me. I can help make them more affordable with my marker club.
