Hi everyone!
Today it's my turn again to show you a little tip.
Did you already heard of an acrylic paint marker? 
You can use it in so many ways! Krafty girl Tracy Valure already showed us how to do a stippled background, but now I wanted to show you how you can use it on  your coloured project. It's so easy and you get a totally different look!
I've used a Molotow marker (signal white) but you can also use the sharpie white poster paint pen that's in the shop right now!

Here's my finished coloured stamp featuring our new sassy zombies stampset "Trick or eat!"

I could put her right on a card but I want to give her some highlights! 
The point of this acrylic marker is 1.5 mm and that's perfect for that!
You can create highlights on her cheecks, like I did, or on her hair (really cute with mermaids!)
Or you can create a pattern on an object, that's what I did with this inflatable duck.
You just have to shake the pen before you start and than you have to make a little dot by pump the point softly down. It dries really fast and you can use it on almost all surfaces!

Now you have a totally different look on your image! 
Hope you'll try this out and don't forget to share your project with us!
