Let Us Use Markers

I have been asked what is the difference between different brands of markers. I am not sure that I know how to answer that question. There are Stampin Up markers, Tombow markers, distress markers, Marvy markers and Memento markers -- just to name a few brands. All of these are water based markers.

I love coloring directly on my stamps with the Stampin' Up markers. I love the watercolor look I can get with my Tombow and Distress markers by Tim Holtz. The ink can be reactived by water when coloring directly to the watercolor paper. I love the way that these markers can be blended.

For the images below, I stamped each one with VersaFine Black Onyx ink and then heat embossed each with fine detail clear embossing powder on Canson 140# watercolor paper. Below each picture you will see a list of the colors that I used.
