Default Dotted Background coloring question

i have seen now a lot of really great cards using the dotted background stamp... actually at first i thought it was designer paper so good did it looked.

i am not such a big fan of markers... i usually use my inkpads or the watercolor wonder crayons to color.

what do you think? do i need the markers to color that stamp or will the crayons do?

Looks like the creator of that card used either ink pads or markers. I don't know if the crayons would work. I'm not saying they won't, but with this technique usually you ink the stamp with dye based ink either in ink pads or markers and then once the stamp is colored in you exhale on it to remoisten the ink, then stamp on your card stock. An idea other than markers or full size ink pads would be to get some spots (the smaller ink pads) in classic ink. Because of their small size you would probably be able to ink it up with them. Plus you have the added benefit of using them for other stamps and they would cover more easily and quickly than markers would. If you accidently get some ink on a spot you don't want simply wipe that area off with a tissue.

I don't have that particular stamp, but I have done others in multi-color. I prefer pigment (craft) ink for this technique because it stays wet on the rubber for a longer time. And yes, as StampinOma says, I use small spot pads. Some brands call them cat's-eyes.

Hi Claudia, I don't think the WCC would be a great choice for that particular stamp. Markers would be the easiest way to go. Spots can be difficult to manuever into small spaces.

well, since the colors are the new ones and they don't come in markers, she must have done some really careful inking . . . perhaps we should ask her!
