Highlighter pens and Distress Ink!


Hello All,

So once again i owe my latest challenge to ‘Craft Stamper’ magazine. (August 2012 Issue)

This technique uses Highlighter pens and Distress ink to create a great back ground.

And here is my finished creation. I have to say that i love this card and technique.



So come on fellow crafters get out those highlighters and have a go!

    • Hi Lyn,

      Of Course i can share (I am a technique junkie too!).
      You use your highlighter pen (or promarker) all over your chosen size of white card and then allow to dry (or dry with heatgun). Then use distress ink heavy on edges and lighter into centre. Original instructions then used sandpaper all over and more distress ink but i didn’t to that as i was happy with result!

      Really Glas you liked the card and technique. Would love to see what you create.
