Alcohol And Marker {Watercolor}

Saturday, March 1, 2014

There are so many ways to create a watercolor look and here's one more!This one everyone can do because all you need are Sharpies and Rubbing Alcohol.{Here I used Bic Mark It Markers}
For this card  I colored onto my craft sheet with the marker, spritzed it with alcohol, and used a brush to apply the color to the cardstock.  I also tried applying the paper directly onto the craft sheet to pick up the color. I tried scribbling onto an acrylic block, spritzing with alcohol, and then applying the paper to that.  All of these techniques work, but deliver different results.
Enjoy experimenting.

Here are a few more designs created with rubbing alcohol and markers. I can't wait to try these Easter eggs this year. 
How beautiful are these sheets?
Definitely trying these eggs this year!

Have a Great Day!
