Distress Markers!!

While I was at CHA last week I was lucky enough to take the Tim Holtz Diversity of Distress class.  I will be blogging more about the cards we made in the class AND you will be able to see them and all the product we used at Scrappy Chic…but today I am going to show you a couple of birthday projects I made using some of the techniques and the Birthday Blueprint stamps I picked up at Scrappy Chic yesterday.
I stamped the images with archival ink on watercolor paper and used my Distress markers to watercolor them (with a watercolor pen).  I love this technique, so much fun!!!  I also used the BRAND NEW Distress Marker Spritzer.

Now this is a fun new tool!!  And you can use it with almost ANY marker!!
OK, here is a birthday card I did with the party hat stamp.
