Stamping With Spectrum Noir Markers

Hi and welcome to my blog. I am always looking for new to me techniques and I am happy to have stumbled onto this one. On the Artsy Inkers stamping board there was a discussion about trying to stamp using copics. Someone suggested that maybe by coloring on the soild stamp and then spritzing alcohol on the stamp that this would activate the copics ( the copics dry fast ) and you could stamp the stamp. Well, I immediately tried it and it turned out great! I stamped on matte card stock first and it looked good. It gave a marbled effect kind of like when you do the polished stone technique. Here is the example on matte card stock.

THEN I tried it again on glossy card stock and boy was I impressed! Here is the card I made with my image. The flowers were stamped using Spectrum Noir markers.

Here are some more examples on the glossy card stock.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope your day is wonderful!
