Video: Combining Liquid Watercolors and Alcohol Markers

Sep 19, 2022 Kelly Taylor

Hello crafters! It's Kelly Taylor here and I'm so excited to share this card combining mediums with you today! I used my Hero Arts Liquid Watercolors with my alcohol markers to really help the Artichoke Arrangement shine. I did use the Artichoke Arrangement Bundle for this card for added dimension. 

You can watch how I did it below or on the Hero Arts YouTube channel.

I stamped the image in Intense Black ink on our Luxe White Watercolor Cardstock. I sprayed the paper with clean water and then laid down a soft watercolor background over my image using Moss, Dark Teal, Mulled Wine, and Dandelion Liquid Watercolors. 

Once the background was dry I went in and colored the image using various techniques including stippling and color glazing. When I finished coloring the image I die cut it out. I adhered the negative piece of background flat to an Eggplant cardstock card front using Precision Glue. I then popped up the arrangement on foam and adhered it right back into the background. 

For the sentiment I stamped using our Clear Embossing and Watermark Ink on some Eggplant cardstock before heat embossing with White Detail Embossing Powder. Lastly, I wanted to add some shine so I painted our White Iridescent Shimmer Mist in specific areas. 

Thank you so much for joining me today!

Hero Arts and Kelly Taylor are the perfect combo! Her techniques are easily understandable because her descriptions are flawless. She takes the mystique out of advancing my own creativity as she exudes confidence that ‘anyone can do this’ while always expressing ‘you do you’! Another beautiful stamp set from Hero Arts brought to life by the amazing Kelly Taylor!
