We’re talking ALL about backgrounds today and our contributor, Mayra Duran-Hernandez shows you a super easy AND quick technique to create your own marbled watercolor backgrounds using those fabulous Brush Pens.
Even though Mayra had never tried the Tombow markers before, they completely resonated with her:
“Let me be honest: I am in LOVE with these markers!”
This is how Mayra created her backgrounds:
- I added a bit of color to my water color base cardstock
- I then sprayed some water from a small spray bottle directly on the paper and the bits of color
- I let them dry and added a couple more bits of color to deepen the tone
- You can do this until you achieve the look you are going for.
As you can see in the above photo, you can continue adding color to create a unique background for each card! Light or dark – it’s totally up to your creativity!
As you may have been able to guess, Mayra is a huge fan of the princesses and villains collection and the backgrounds she created for the images are perfect.
We think this is a technique that can easily be replicated for multiple cards and different projects. Is this something you’d love to try? Stay tuned next week – we may be doing a giveaway!
See you tomorrow for more inspiration using Tombow’s products.
