Creating Watercolour Effects with Spectrum Aqua markers distributing by Canuck Crafts by Christy Riopel

I love this quick layout that I put together.

I used Spectrum Aqua Markers and Watercolour Cardstock, Clearsnap SurfaceZ Ink, Magenta stamps and Stencils.


Using the Magenta stencil draw lines inside the openings of the stencil. Spray with water and lift off the stencil. This works so well because the Spectrum Aquas are a waterbased marker.


I also used the markers on the edges of my photo matte


I added these beautiful Magenta flower stamps using a permanent ink like Clearsnap SurfaceZ ink so that I can spray water over the top after I have coloured them in.

It’s amazing how a little water can turn these markers into works of art.

Have a wonderful Tuesday!
