I've been slowly collecting stamps and havent really used them for any projects. The stamping was fun but when I coloured them in with regular markers they looked like my niece did it.. just not the finish I've seen or wanted. So when I was looking through the flyer from Michaels and saw prismacolor markers on for 50% off I decided I would try them out. I got the basic 12pack and was so excited to get home.
I stamped up one of my new fairy stamps and dumped the pens on the table. I thought I knew how to use the pens, they're just markers after all? lol was I wrong. I was actually dissapointed with my first image. It ended up looking the same as my other markers.
My friends joke with me because if I dont know the answer to something, I always say.. "google it!" So thats what I did. I ended up watching lots of video tutorials on both prismacolor and copics markers.
