Video: Marker Spritzer + GIVEAWAY

I am very happy that one of my favorite tools is now available – the Tim Holtz Marker Spritzer.I have a video… and a giveaway!

(All supplies are linked in the thumbnails at the end of this post.)

Today I have two cards – both using the Marker Spritzer.

I really love the look of misted backgrounds, but have a hard time using mists. So this Marker Spritzer tool is an answer to my crafty wishes! I can get so much more control over my color and the results.

For this background, I heavily spritzed Distress Makers with my Marker Spritzer over the Simon Says Stamp Diamond Circles stencil. (But remember – you can use pretty much ANY marker!) I just love the results…

For both of these cards, I heat embossed (using my favorite embossing powder – Ranger Liquid Platinum) the greeting from the Cas-ual Friday Wallflower stamp set on a piece cut with the My Favorite Things Rectangle Stax dies. I also matted the piece with cardstock that I covered with matching embossing.

For my next card, I used the Marker Spritzer in a unique way.

I started by covering regular white cardstock with a heavy coating of Peacock Feathers Distress Ink. I then added the My Favorite Things Delicate Doily stencil over the inked surface and used my Marker Spritzer with a water pen and Perfect Pearls to mist over it. When Distress Ink comes in contact with water, it “reacts” and gives a cool effect. By doing a light mist, you can apply the water in just the open areas of the stencil, creating a pattern. The results are subtle but pretty!
