Go Color! – Video Tutorial

I have been doing a lot of backgrounds lately using the Karin Brushmarker Pro, so I thought I would show you how easily they are achieved.  This is so easy that you are going to want every color that Karin has available.


Creating this Card:

Another quick and easy card to make (background included).  Using the crayons and sentiment from the Crayon clear stamp set I colored them up using my alcohol markers, but you could do them in any medium.  Once they were colored, I cut them out and popped them off the fun background paper that I created (see video above on how I created it).  This was layered onto black cardstock.  The last thing to do was die cut the word “GO” using the Bold ABC die set.

Just like that!  Easy, right?

If you are over on the Whimsy Stamps site purchasing stamps and need to get to the free shipping mark, go ahead and throw in some Karin Brushmarker Pro.  They carry a wide variety HERE.  If you want to buy some Karin box sets or you want to try out the watercolor paper I used, use the links below and be sure and use the coupon code DOVE15 at Marker Universe for 15% off you whole order.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I had no idea that xpress it made a watercolor paper. Gotta give that a try. Thanks again. Love your backgrounds,

  2. Thanks for your video. You sounded great and didn’t waste time showing the technique. Is this better than using distress oxide inks or just another way to accomplish a similar effect?

    1. Hello Jan thank you for the sweet comment. I do not have the distress oxides so I can’t compare for you. I do know that these karin have very vivid colors if used direct to paper and then when watered down they get lighter. There is also a lot of ink in the markers so they last a long time, plus you can sit into the marker so you know if and when you need to replace them. They are about 3.00 each so the price point is fabulous. I would love your feedback if you ever compare the products.

  3. Loved hearing your voice and love the video….you know where I am going now. Hugs
