Hope your week started just as wonderful as mine (I have 3,5 weeks off - yay!).
Today I'd like to share some thoughts on Distress Markers. I got my markers on Saturday and played around a LOT - but don't really get the point of having Distress Markers. Don't get me wrong, I had lots of fun. They're easy to use, come in all the great Distress colors and have a fine tip so you can write sentiments or add accents in matching colors, but I have to say I am not too happy with the coloring results, because
- the colors aren't very bright after using water
- some of the colors don't blend well and you see the strokes too well
- some color even change when they are in contact with water
See my video for all the details on that:
I tried to take a good photo of how ripe persimmon changes after using water (and drying):
But as I said in the video: I'll still buy more. I really love the idea of writing something in the same color like I stamped or colored and I think they're fun to play with. Some colors are really awesome and react well - maybe I'll make a chart some day - hehe :)
What are your experiences with Distress Markers? Do you like them? Even love them? Or have you ever been disappointed just like me?
Well, I didn't give up and created a card using them. For the orange I had to add Distress Ink from my inkpads (Some brushed corduroy and spiced marmelade), but the result is nice, right? The sentiment is from Mias Stempelküche - she has many beautiful German sentiments ;)
Thanks for stopping by and taking time for my thoughts :)
