In the picture above you can view the marble of the color from the clear block stamping. I love how the colors merge together. 
Also see the flower how pretty it is with the mix colors.
Markers are great for stamping. If you never try to stamp with markers give it a try it’s amazing. You do not need to spritz the stamp with water, you can color with marker and huff on the color stamp and stamp on paper.
