If you’ve ever wondered the question “can you watercolour with markers and stamps?“, you’re not alone!

And the answer is YES you can. And an even better answer is, and it’s not hard at all!

Today’s card made with the Garden Wishes bundle shows how you can achieve really soft watercolour effects with markers and rubber stamps!

Easy watercoloured card made with the Garden Wishes bundle

This is a great card for a friend’s birthday or a congrats or even a wedding!

The corner pin of course is the multi-coloured flower which was stamped first, then cut out with the matching die. I then cut out another die shape in one of the colours of markers I used and glued it together so it provided a shadow.

Can You Watercolour with Markers and Stamps?

Now how can you get this kind of effect with your rubber stamps?

Use Your markers directly on your stamp for great effects!
  1. First grab a few Stampin’ Write markers in colours that coordinate. (TIP: Be sure they are not the Stampin’ Blends as they are not water-based and will not work for this technique. Learn more about the two kinds of markers in this video.) My markers are Bumblebee, Cinnamon Cider, Soft Succulent and a tinge of Calypso Coral.)
  2. Next turn your stamp over so the red rubber is facing up and randomly colour with the different markers all over the stamp. TIP: try not to overlap the colours too much or you might get brown when you didn’t want it!
  3. Hold your stamp up and from a distance of about 8-12 inches, spritz it LIGHTLY 3-5 times with your Stampin’ Spritzer.
  4. Then stamp it onto a piece of Shimmery White cardstock and let it dry! TIP: The Shimmery White will take a little bit of water and give excellent results. Other cardstocks will not work for this technique.
  5. Be sure to spritz it really lightly a second time and stamp on another piece of Shimmery White so you can get an even softer impression. That’s exactly what I did for this one, it’s the second stamping so it even has more of a watercolour look to it.

Now It’s Your Turn!
