Playing with highlighter pens

I've finally got round to having a play with highlighter pens as featured by Paula Whittaker in Craft Stamper last month and also on her own blog here. I used an orange highlighter, walnut stain distress ink and Inkylicious stamps on the first.
The second was done with a yellow highlighter, walnut stain distress ink and stamps from Hero Arts and Chocolate Baroque. I sprayed the second with a water mist to get the speckled effect. I will definitely be doing some more of these. Now what did I do with the blue and pink highlighters?!
Thanks, Paula, for sharing such a fab idea with us.
Thanks for looking!

These are both striking - love the crisp white background with the black script/music & the foliage - especially those teasels.

You've got excellent results with this technique Sally. I love both your cards. Teasels make such a beautiful stamped image don't they! I haven't had chance to try this out yet but I bought some new highlighters ready for when I get time as mine had all dried up.

The technique works a treat. These are gorgeous. Just got my Craft Stamper copy out and read the instructions. Will definitely be trying this out. Found a green, blue and a yellow marker in my bottom drawer! Hugs Mrs A.
