NOTE: I put the wrong ink color on my previous post. The correct ink is Brilliance Pearlescent RUST. Amazing the things that pop into your mind right after you wake up in the morning! I've edited the post to reflect the change. The metallic marker IS copper, though. The two match nicely, don't they?
ANOTHER NOTE: I've updated and rewritten parts of my Product Talk tab with new information. If you're looking for discussion of ink, card stock, or stamps, check it out.
On this post, I painted Stickles over water-resistant colored ink, but my first attempt with painting Stickles used an outline stamp. Check it out!
To get this effect, I used almost no water (wet the brush and wiped it on a paper towel), so the Stickles went down thicker. The sketchy style of this old Hampton Arts stamp works perfectly with the loose and "messy" style of the painted Stickles.
