Tutorial - The Colourful Reef

A quick and easy way to add lots of colour to your project is to stamp with multiple colours at once. Although you can purchase multi-coloured stamp pads that give awesome rainbow effects, using water-based markers is a little more precise.

Apply the markers directly to the stamp, colouring each area with a different colour. You can get some fabulous results by mixing the colours a little bit or by adding a fine mist of water to the stamp or onto the paper. Experiment with different techniques to see what you come up with.

I ended up with a sheet full of colourful fish and coral, which I fussy cut and loaded onto a double z-fold card for an awesome underwater scene!
