Misting With Markers

by Beate Johns

Use waterbased markers to add multiple colors to an image.


  • Waterbased markers
  • Water misting bottle
  • Stamp here, Essence of Love by SU!
  • Cardstock


  1. Step 1

    With stamp rubber side up, color the image with a marker.

  2. Step 2

    Continue to color with the marker until everything in this color has been covered.

    It's helpful to start with the lightest color first.

  3. Step 3

    Continue to color your image with other colored markers until the entire image is colored.

  4. Step 4

    Spray the image with water mist bottle.
    The more you spray, the more the ink will run when you stamp.

    Hint: Hold the stamp in one hand and the misting bottle in the other, with hands about 12" apart. Spray a couple of times.

    You can also spray water into the air first, then move your image through to make sure the stamp doesn't get too wet.

  5. Step 5

    Stamp image on cardstock.

  6. Step 6

    Finished card.

I love this card. Is the stamp from a new, upcoming stamp set - or have I missed it in the current catty? It's beautiful!

Just a comment about another way to do this is to LIGHTLY mist your paper before you stamp it and it will give you about the same effect. Thanks for all of the wonderful ideas here!
