Testing out the new distress markers..

Smiley from millan.netHello and happy Wednesday! So, after drooling on the new Tim Holtz distress markers for days, it's time to put them to work. And yes, I did, I did. It was so much fun. Here is what I did... I colored this pretty flower stamp from Hero Arts Blooming Meadow with distress markers, then stamp... and then spray with some water and stamp again (without re-applying with distress marker).

Top image is the 2nd generation stamping with spray of water (which created an awesome watercolor effect)

Below image is just with the distress markers...


I used Hero Arts kraft card stock. The card on the left hand side is the 2nd generation and right hand side is the original without the water. Which one do you like better?
