Create stunning works of art with our Watercolor Brush Markers! The barrel is filled with water-based color, and coordinates with our line of inks. The flexible, yet sturdy bristles on the brush tip allow you to form both broad and fine strokes. Color can be applied straight from the marker, or diluted with water for a softer look.


The colors are really vibrant and you can work with the fine and flexible bristles very easily! 
I have created two cards using the new Watercolor Brush Markers


On the first card I colored the floral cluster image from Starry Flowers set in yellow and orange using Warm Sunshine and Autumn Blaze Brush markers.


I stamped the image on some watercolor paper two times in black pigment ink. After the stamped image was dry I colored the flowers loose and roughly. I added the same colors and Moss to the background and splattered them around the flowers too.


The sentiment is from Build-A-Flower: Sakura Blossom set. I stamped it in Jet Black ink and again in some embossing ink to clear heat emboss it. I added clear glitter Nuvo drops onto the flower centers to finish off the card.


While coloring the Cattleya orchid flowers on the next card I focused more on the details.


I stamped the Build-A-Flower: Cattleya in Morning Frost mini ink on some watercolor paper for no-line coloring. I used Midnight Violet, Rubellite, Warm Sunshine and Autumn Blaze to color the flowers, and Emerald and Moss for the stem.


I colored the outer edge of the petals and the folds of the petals directly using Watercolor Brush Markers and blended the colors out towards the flower center using a watercolor brush. After done coloring I cut it using the coordinating die.


To create the background I white heat embossed the BAF: Cattleya on a watercolor paper panel. I added lots of water onto the panel before I applied Rubellite, Midnight Violet, Sea Breeze and Limeade on it. After the panel was dry I stamped the sentiment from BAF: Camellia in Midnight Violet.  I assembled the card together by foam mounting the colored and cut Cattleya onto the background panel.
