Embellished Ornaments - Stampin' Write Marker Technique

This year our minds were blown away when our Stampin' friend Angela from NZ presented a new colouring technique at OnStage. She coloured a bold/solid image of an elephant, a new stamp from the Occasions Catalogue with a marker, concentrating only on the 'valleys' (grooves) of the stamp. The stamped image was amazing and it made me think of all the bold/solid stamps that I tend to ignore when crafting. I have renamed this to the 'AMR technique' Angela has changed how I look at these stamps forever. 

Christmas is only 4 days away!!! So I have tried the AMR technique on this beautiful ornament stamp from Embellished Ornaments. 
I cleaned my stamp before starting and then using the brush tip of my Elegant Eggplant Marker, I carefully coloured all the lines of the image. I coloured a little heavier on the left side as you can see below and before stamping I gave the stamp a couple gentle 'huffs' to remoisten the ink.
The stamped image is gorgeous!! Just as I had hoped it would turn out. 
You may see a slight pink tinge to the image - this is from my stamp cleaner! I actually don't mind it, but it's time to give it a wash I think. 
'Merry Wishes' is from Oh What Fun - pg 31 Annual Catalogue & is embossed in Silver to match the awesome Silver Foil paper embossed with The Holly emboss folder (pg 195 AC).
