M is for Marker Wash

Fun technique from the Technique Junkies Newsletter
Stamp an image on water color paper and cover with black embossing powder and heat set. It's recommended to use images with open areas.
 Use water based markers to color in the open areas in the stamped image. Use colors that won't muddy when mixed together.
 Spray water into the colored areas.
 Tilt the card to move the colored water over the surface.
 Let air dry for a washed look, or use a heat tool to dry and get a puddled appearance (this was air dried):
Stamped flourishes with purple dye ink. Colored edges with black soot Distress ink and also to stamp the word "soar". Added small purple rhinestone to bird's eye.
