Valentine Card with Bangood Watercolor Markers & Rubbernecker Stamp

I was asked to review this set of 36 Bangood watercolor markers, and found them to be really fun to use. I never receive any monies for products I review, and if you want to purchase them, here’s the link.  They were $12.99 for the set, and shipping to the US is free.  I didn’t check for the rest of the world, but believe the offer free shipping to most places.

I used a new stamp I bought from Rubbernecker Stamps called Floral Circle and here’s a link to it. http://tinyurl.com/floralcircle

I inked the stamp with Versamark Ink and used silver embossing powder from Stampin’ Up and heat set it on a 5 x 5″ piece of Canson XL watercolor paper.. I used the set of 36 water based markers from Bangood to color the image, but unfortunately, my camera cut out the blending. I wanted to make sure you could still see me blend, so did some blending with several colors in the middle of the video.. I used a water brush to liquefy the lighter bluish purple color that I used on the background. I used a circle die to cut out the image, then used a piece of silver foil paper and the next bigger circle die to layer under it. I took a label banner die from Die-Namics and used an old Stampin’ Up stamp set called Good Greetings for my sentiment “Happy Valentine’s Day”.. and another Fiskars set for the inside sentiment “You’re the best.” from the set called Petals from Scratch.  I used red card stock that was 11″ long by 5 1/2″ wide, and scored in half at 5 1/2″ to make a 5 1/2″ square card.
I centered the floral circle on the silver card stock and used tape runner to adhere them together and glued them to the center of the card. Then used glue dots to hold the ends of the banner down and put foam tape under the center and then glued it to the card.  I used Versamark ink and the same silver embossing powder for the sentiment on the banner and inside the card.

I decorated the envelope with the Cobblestone Heart from pegstamps.com and here’s the link to it. https://pegstamps.com/cobblestone-heart-mini-peg-stamp.html. I used Versamark ink and the same silver embossing and heat set it so it matches the inside of the card.

I really liked the markers, and thought they blended well.  I showed a couple different ways to use them, direct to paper, as well as scribbling on a tile and picking the ink up with a blender pen.  I think they are a good value for $12.99 and would recommend them to someone looking for a good variety of markers at a reasonable price. The only thing I didn’t like about the markers was the container they come in. There are small circles in the bottom where you put the markers, but once I pulled markers out, I couldn’t figure out where the holes were that the marker came out of. I would either figure out a way to remove the circle slots in the bottom, or store them in a different container.
