Create backgrounds with your Spectrum Noir Markers

Today Kerin shows you in her tutorial how to use your Spectrum Noir Markers to create fabulous backgrounds for your cards and how you can use them with your stamped images!

Crafter’s Companion Supplies:


Step 1: Color randomly on an acrylic block with Spectrum Noir Markers FL1, BP4, CT4 and Spritz colored acrylic block with rubbing alcohol.


Step 2: Lay cardstock on wet ink glossy side down, when it is lifted it will look similar to the image below. If there isn’t enough coverage or the look is not favorable, the glossy cardstock can be reapplied to the wet ink as desired.


Step 3: Let glossy cardstock completely dry, then use as a background for your stamped image and fussy cut out and adhere to your card.


Here is another card using this technique, using the coloured card as a background. The Spectrum Noir Markers used here were TB2, IB3 and  HB3.

Have lots of fun using this technique!
