I was making a simple little card and realized I didn't have the cardstock I needed to coordinate with my ink. I always have plenty of Whisper White cardstock on hand though! So I took my Stampin' Blends Bermuda Bay marker and colored around the outside of my cardstock. It created the perfect mat! Since the ink is alcohol, it blends nicely and you can't see streaks like you sometimes can with regular markers.
And here is my finished card! See how the mat coordinates perfectly with the ink? You would never know it's not Bermuda Bay cardstock!
