color with metallic markers all around your brayer. With a fine mist spray
bottle, spritz a thick film of water onto the surface of
a glossy card. Roll the brayer once over the card. More
than one swipe tends to "muddy" the colors. If you want
more swirls, spritz the card again. Air dry or use your
a glossy card with a thin film of water. Touch the tip of
one color of metallic marker here and there into the water.
Spritz again. Aim the heat tool at a low angle across the
card and move the film of water as it dries. Repeat the
process with another metallic color.
Scribble and dot colors onto a dry glossy card.
Then spritz the surface with water. The colors will spread
and swirl together. Air dry or use your heat tool to further
blend as it dries.
Spray a little water onto black glossy card stock.
(You can make your own black glossy card by rolling black
Memories ink onto a white glossy card with your brayer.)
Using gold metallic marker, scribble a bit onto the
water, occasionally pressing the tip to release more ink.
Now add some copper metallic marker ink in the same way.
Tilt the cardstock, allowing the inks to run and mix. Sprinkle
a small amount of black embossing powder into some of the
wet areas of the card. For maximum color contrast, do not
cover the whole card with powder. Apply heat with your heat
tool until the powder has melted, the inks have dried, and
the water has disappeared. The surface will bubble during
the application of heat. Now experiment with other colors
of metallic markers on some of the metallic foil board
