Default Kristina Werner video- Watercoloring with Distress Markers

Have you used Distress markers ? They are so versatile. And like Distress Inks they are water soluble so you can do so many cool things. Today Kristina is showing us how to use them to get a watercolor effect. First the card she made, then the video showing you how to do it.





Here is the Greeting Farm stamp she used to create the little girl

I have been sitting on the fence with regards to buying copic or distress markers. I need to get some because always colouring with watercolouring pencisl can be tiring on the old hand. Sooo my question about the distress markers is do they blend will over each other? Do I need to really let a colour try well before shading overtop with another shade of one particular colour? Just curious because this maybe the answer to my question. I do have 2 copics and they blend so well but the cost is something to really think about, but the distress markers are so reasonabley priced.

Copics and Distress Markers blend differently. Copic markers blend well one over the other and come, as you know, in MANY different shades. So you can get a really nice gradiant look from light to dark just by layering.

Unlike Copics, Distress Markers are reactive with water and so their best blending is attained by using a water brush. Not only can it take one color and you can spread the color that you applied or you can help to colors to blend together that way.

Watch this video where Tim Holtz demonstrates how to do this.
