Challenge #193-Markers/Inks

Markers, inks and other colorants are all the rage right now.  With the coloring book craze we are all buying up all kinds of colorants.  This challenge is to use those markers and inks on a project.

Here is a sampling of inspiration from our design team.  It's your turn now.  Let's see what you can come up with using markers and inks.


For my project, I used both markers to color my image and inks to do a watercolor wash background. This was my first time watercoloring with Distress Inks, and I am quite pleased with the background. 


I created this ATC with different colours of Distress Ink.

..... and the for some reason I thought my birdie was way too large for an ATC, so I mounted the whole thing onto a card ;)


Not tons of inks, but inks none the less! I love using stamps on my layouts and this was the perfect challenge to pull out the stamps and the inks the challenge required.


It's my little man's 3rd birthday tomorrow so instead of scrapping pages I have been using my scrap supplies to create party decorations. We did a construction theme this year so this is the card I made for him. I stamped the sentiment and used distress inks around the block.

I'd never forget you! In my card I used distress Ink to create the background of the shaker and copic markers to coloring the owls. Classic Ink to stamp the sentiment and I can't image my life with our inks...


Here is a vintage card set that I created at Nicole Wright's card class at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival hosted by Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine
