Create a Watercolor background with Stampin’ Write Markers and an Acrylic Block

By | May 27, 2017

This technique is so quick and easy, but impactful.  Create a watercolor background with Stampin’ Write markers and an acrylic block.  I promise you, after watching my video, this technique will be on your go-to list of techniques.  Not only is it super easy to do, but it has a WOW effect that will impress both beginners and experts (and that’s what we want, right?).  I did my background with Tempting Turquoise, Island Indigo and Rich Razzleberry.  But, there are so many other combinations you can do.  I suggest a light(er), medium and dark color for each blend.  Leave me a comment to tell me which 3 color combinations you like blending together, we can create a color chart.
