Dancing Try Folds

Well doesn't that sound interesting? Dancing Try Folds... made me chuckle a bit. :) Hope you're all enjoying your weekend!

When I first got the try folds I went crazy! I made two different cards, one the correct way... and one... well, my way! So here's the card, the correct way...

One thing I didn't think of when I had first stamped this out was that the ink would bleed through. I kind of like the look, but, I painted over it anyways. I thought it would look better if I had painted over it- It also made the card a little more sturdy. In case you missed the first post with the video about the Try Folds, you can see that post here. I really like the Try Folds, in fact I have another one to show you in a week or two!

So, are you wondering about the dancing part... well, I didn't think it would be fair to show you something you've already seen in a video. So I thought I would share a video I had done a few months ago. It shows a very different coloring technique using alcohol based markers that hasn't been shared on the Art Impressions blog yet. In this particular video, I'm using Letraset's Pro/FlexMarkers. This is one of my favorite techniques, and can be used with any alcohol based marker. It helps to dull the very bright colors you may want to use, but refrain from doing because of their saturation. 

The stamp I used in the video is called Dancers.

If you use this technique, I'd love to see what you create! Feel free to share your link in the comment section so I can see it!
