New twist on an old technique



Ok this is hard to see in the pictures, but I colored some free digital stamps I found online, and I always noticed other card makers/scrapbookers using this "edging" technique. Well I only own one black stamp pad, so I was thinking how can I do this "edging" if I don't have any ink pads??? So I tried my crayola markers. It is very subtle, I take a coordinating color marker and ink the edges, what do you think?? I really want some alcohol inks/markers but I need to save up for them.
Hugs,

Very cute. You should consider the promarkers as they are so much cheaper....check out my blog and you can see how they look. My pictures are crap though, but you get the idea. www.canadiancraftcorner.blogspot.com

Melissa, your flowers are beautiful. I clicked on the photo to make it bigger to see what you meant by edging. It turned out well.
