As you might be aware, Close to my Heart had gotten some new markers and I have been busy playing with them. They are so fun! They are alcohol based...so when you play, make sure you put something under since they do bleed.
So I made this card and Someone asked if it matters if you use our regular black stamp pad or if you have to use a Stazon or pigment ink. You know, I didn't think it mattered, but I found out fast that it DOES matter.
This first picture is using the pigment ink. See how the flower POP!
Then the one below I used the regular black stamp pad. See how the flowers don't stand out as much as the one above. So make sure you use a pigment stamp pad or Stazon when using the markers. The card looks fine, but MUCH better with the pigment ink.
Here are the 2 card side by side. The one on the right is the pigment ink. I didn't think there would be that big of a difference, but there is.
So get out your markers and start creating!
