I absolutely love my Tombow Dual Brush Markers and use them all the time in many ways. One of my favorite uses of them is for water coloring. I simply scribble the brush tip onto palette paper, which becomes my paint palette. I like using palette paper because it's large size allows me to add several colors and it's white so I get a true visual of each color. You can use acrylic blocks with a piece of white paper underneath as a good option.
Here's my sweet little card today:
Once my trees were painted, I added color to the tree trunks. Before proceeding to the snow base, I made sure the paper was dry using my heat tool. The snow was added with the same wet-on-wet technique. That area was also dried before moving to the green hills behind the trees. Finally, the sky was added last.
The sentiment was stamped with cocoa archival ink. Spoonful of Pixie Dust was lightly sprinkled over the card front. I used my handy dandy pointy straw which worked great for adding tiny amounts. The snow was heat set from underneath.
The tree panel was mounted on craft foam and then mounted onto another section of watercolor paper as I wanted to keep it understated.
