Super Hero… March 5th

Written by Annette Allen. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello MarkerPop friends… Annette Allen here with you today for my first Design Team post. I am so excited to be a part of the MarkerPop team.
Hero 1.1

 Today I thought it would be fun to share a fun shaker card using:

Mama Elephant: Tiny Heroes

Mama Elephant Creative Cuts: Tiny Heroes

Lawn Fawn: Lawn Cuts Puffy Star Stackable

Mama Elephant Creative Cuts:  Slim Tags Trio

Hero 1.2

 

The background was created by using a star stencil and Memento full size ink pads.

(Tangelo, Rose Bud and Teal Zeal)

I stamped and colored the images with Memento full side ink pad Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Sketch Markers ( R83, R81, E00, E000, E74, E71, E70, BG02, BG000, YR14, RY12, N5, N3, N1, E37 and E35)

Hero 1.3

 

I created the shaker with Lawn Fawn: Lawn Cuts Puffy Star Stackable.

Adhered the images to the shaker to the card and the images to the shaker.

Lastly I die cut this cute tag from Mama Elephant Creative Cuts:  Slim Tags Trio.

Stamped the sentiment and adhered the tag to the card.

**GIVEAWAY ALERT**

I am so happy to share that MarkerPop is giving away to one lucky winner (WHO COMMENTS)

Coloring Black-Purple Ombre Hair with Copics

Written by carisa_zglobicki. Posted in Tips & Tricks, Tutorials

Hi everyone! (Read all the way to the end; there’s a Giveaway!)

I am SO excited to be here with my first post as part of the new MarkerPop! Design Team. When I first started stamping in 2009 it was at the same time I was introduced to Copic Markers – I became hooked instantly with bringing a black and white stamped image to life with color. There is something magical about watching the stamp start to pop off your page as it comes to life. I love to watch coloring videos – that’s pretty much how I taught myself so it is my hope to share with you some videos as well throughout my term sharing my process, tips and techniques. I have my first one for you today – it’s been awhile since I’ve filmed myself coloring so I need to work on my camera angles but bare with me…I’ll get better, promise!

 
This week I am featuring Little Loves by Saturated Canary part of Little Darlings Rubber Stamps latest release and Copics. I stamped my image on Copic Xpress It Blending Cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. This is my by far my favorite paper and ink to use when coloring with Copic Markers. If you know me, even a little bit, you know I LOVE extreme hair colors and that love definitely spills into my coloring. Right now, I am growing out my locks from a super short cut and I’m itching to do some dip dye – so, that inspired me to dip dye the hair on my image today! I might just bring this in to my hair stylist to show her what I want. LOL

I do love how the butterfly turned out – blending two different colors can be fun and I’ll definitely be practicing more on this technique! I always have a hard time choosing what colors to use for lips so I tend to leave those for last. I finally decided if I had those beautiful blue eyes and striking dark hair, I’d definitely go for a deep reddish pink!

Of course, what is coloring without shimmer? I tell ya, I am so happy with Zig for coming up with the Wink of Stella glitter brush pens! For this glitter phobe but bling lover, it is the perfect touch. I finally caught the shimmer beautifully on my camera, you can see it here applied to her dress and the butterfly. I used the Lawn Fawn Stitched Journaling Card die to frame my image and will pop her on a card eventually. ;)

If you are wondering the colors I used, I wrote them all out on this piece of paper for you – I normally do this and type in all the combinations, but I’m trying something different – because time is of the essence. haha I’ll try to be a bit more neat with my handwriting next time. Taking a picture was pretty much an afterthought! I actually wrote them down in the order I laid down the color. Sometimes, I color light to dark and sometimes (like for dark hair) I color dark to light. It really is just a preference and what ever you are most comfortable with. 

I filmed this video of me coloring her hair to show you how I created the black to purple ombre look using Copic Markers. I wanted to highlight this technique today for you. I hope you check out the video and please leave me some feedback on if you found it helpful or enjoyable as I plan on future videos for you!

For my first post today, MarkerPop! is giving away a prize – the Saturated Canary image I used on this project, Little Loves! Just leave a Comment below by Sunday 3/8, and we will randomly pick one winner to receive this sweet stamp.

Saturated Canary - Little Loves
I hope you enjoyed my first post and I can’t wait to be back with you next week!

Strawberry Bash

Written by Monica Edwards. Posted in 3D, Anything But a Card, Tutorials

Hi everyone, Monica here with my MarkerPop box card project using a new release from Tiddly Inks called Berry Sweet, and I thought this was the perfect 3D Box Card for it!!

Copics

Skin: E000, E00, E04, E11

Hair: E31, E35, E39

Dress: Y15, RV91, RV93, RV95

Strawberries: R21, R24, R29

 I texture embossed the little strawberries to give them more of a 3d look – not sure if I accomplished that but hopefully… I did?!!
Well, I hope everyone enjoyed my post for today, and be sure to check out the Bright Colors Challenge and all the new goodies in the MarkerPop store!!
