Thanks for your comments on my card! Marker batik is super fun to do.
It takes markers, plastic wrap, and glossy or regular white cardstock, plus a little spray bottle for water (fine mist)
Take two or more colors of markers. Start with the lightest color and scribble on the plastic wrap. Repeat with next lightest color and so on. When you have all the colors on, spritz lightly with water. Crumble the wrap and straighten back out (Wrinkles are okay) Lay the wrap, color side down, on top of your cardstock. After 30 seconds, peel the wrap back up and let dry. I like it best on glossy cardstock but this card was done on regular SU white and just seemed right for this stamp.
