Versamarker Blending

The Versamarker watermark pen is a great blending tool. Previously I have used an odorless solvent to blend colored pencils but the Versamarker is so easy to use. No dipping into anything and it works better for me than a blending pen.

These Penny Black flowers were inked using a Faber-Castell big brush pen and then stamped around the edge of watercolor paper. I stamped the flower again added a touch of color with a Prismacolor pencil and blended away the Versamarker. I cut 3 of the flowers out and layered on top of the stamped image with foam dots for a little dimension. The butterfly is from a Hero Arts cling and die set. It is quickly becoming a favorite! I used two colors of pencils on the butterfly.

I have also used a Versamarker to apply chalk to stamped images. If you don't have one in your craft supplies you should try one.

Thanks for stopping by!
