It seems backwards but when coloring a stamped image, alcohol markers ( Blendabilities) work best when used with water based ink and water based markers (Stampin’ Write Markers) work best with alcohol ink (Stazon). Water based ink doesn’t dry on cello or other nonporous surfaces so I wanted to stamp my images in Black Stazon and add some color with my Blendabilies. If you’re using window sheets you can stamp the image on the back and color on the front but that method doesn’t work when using cello bags. When coloring the sunglasses and flower centers I used quick strokes and tried not to touch the black stamped area with my marker.
And now that I’m finished my post I’m off to stamp more samples and eat that chocolate covered licorice.
