One Stamp -Technique Thursday

Well today is Technique Thursday, the only difference is that I am only going to show you three different techniques but using the same stamp. I selected these techniques today because several I have talked to recently say they can't tell the difference in Copic and Watercolor pencils. I hope this will help you see the difference between the first 2 cards, I used Copic on the first and Watercolor pencils on the second. My last is done with Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
The stamp I selected is the Hero Arts Thank You Cling. My cards are all A2 size that have been faced with paper from Making Memories English Garden.
Card#1-Copic Markers-R24, R83, R85, Y15, Y26, B93, B97, and G14. I first stamped my image with Memento Ink on to white card stock, this is the preferred ink because it won't run on you. Color your image first with the lightest color and then take the darker color and do your shading. When finished fussy cut the image out and place it on pop dots.
Card#2-Watercolor Pencils-Light Blue, Dark Blue, Pink, Green, and Green. Stamp your image with Black Stazon Ink and using a H20 pen and your watercolor pencils paint your image in. Finish your card just as you did in Card #1.
Card #3-Tim Holtz Distress Inks-Worn Lipstick, Fired Red, Wild Honey, Broken China, Faded Jeans, Peeled Paint, Aged Mahogany and a H20 Pen. First, stamp your image with Versamark and Black Embossing Powder. (Embossing acts as a resistance so if your Distress Ink gets on it you are able to wipe it off with a light damp paper towel.) Paint your image in the lightest of the Distress Ink and do your shading with the darker Distress Ink using your H20 pen. Finish your card as you did with Card #1.
