Watercolor Marker Background

Hello everyone,

Maria here with a quick tutorial. You can create your own artwork piece with just a few supplies. Today I am going to show you how to use makers to create a watercolor effect background.  For this you will need: alcohol markers: copics/promakers and alcohol.

If you already stamped the image, use a mask to protect the image.

To create the background, use a plastic sheet and colour the surface using markers. Start with the lightest color.
Spray alcohol over the surface. If you don't have a spray bottle, use a brush to add splashes of alcohol.
Place the stamped image over the background and press lighly over, with your finger tips. Repeat the process, until you are happy with the result.
