Stampendous Tutorial and Giveaway

Hello, Rhea Weigand here today for Stampendous to share a fun copic technique my dear friend and amazing Copic Instructor, Jennifer Dove taught me. It has become one of my “go to” techniques when I want a “watercolor” look or when I don’t have a lot of time to spend coloring.  It’s also a great technique when you don’t have tons of marker colors to use for blending.
Because we will be working with alcohol-based Copic Markers, you will need to stamp your CRP179 Cling Violets  with Tuxedo Black Memento Ink by Tsukineko.


We will not be coloring but using a water brush filled with 99% Isopropyl Alcohol. (This is rubbing alcohol for most folks.) Next you will need a piece of acetate or plastic of any kind to use as your pallet. The perfect surface is to use your acrylic stamp handle. The Stampendous Jumbo Perfectly Clear Handle is ideal for stamping large stamps with great detail and as a palette on the go!

Color your chosen markers onto the acetate to create an artists palette.  Now take the water brush filled with alcohol an touch the tip of the brush into the color needed.

Starting with the background place the tip of the brush next to the line with you want your darkest color .  then smush and drag out ward.  The lighter the color the less you will see the color until the alcohol dries.  I added the contrast purple after the blue.

Want to put a little personality into your background?  Fill a spritz bottle with the same alcohol your put in your brush.  Make sure to label so you know 🙂  Also make sure to check the sprayer is away from your face.  Oh sure, you are thinking….”Duh”….but I promise you will spray yourself only once and then you will check every time after that.

Spray a small area of burlap.  Gently lay it on the background for only a few seconds.  You will se it start to work right away.  As it dries you will see the texture of the burlap.


Double click on the photo to enlarge and see the texture from the burlap.

You can do any type of layout with any type of paper.  So I am going to move to another tip!
for this we are going to use Stampendous Crystal Micro Glitter and a thin glue or glossy accent type product and a tulle knot bow.  I put the adhesive on my fingers and rubbed it on both sides of the tulle.  Then I lightly dusted the bow with the glitter.  Oh my is it cool.


Unfortunately, it doesn’t show in the photo very well.
Add the following elements. You can see the card before adding Stampendous Elements…they sure do make a big difference.  I used the following attached with Aleene’s Paper Glaze and in this order:
