Since the image is so big it is perfect for the tall and thin cards that are a less common to receive. I also went for a plain background with a few accents and a sentiment from the WPlus9 Little Dreamers Stamp Set. To color this image in I used a large mix of Spectrum Noir Markers: Hair:Black Brown, Coffee Bean, Dark Brown, Warm Beige; Skin:Dusty Pink, Portrait Pink, Tea Rose; Dress: Periwinkle, Denim, True Blue, Cobalt, Ice Grey 8, Ice Grey 10; Books: Cinnamon, Burnt Sienna, Sunshine, Avocado, Camo Green, Vermillion, Cherry Red; Grass: Salad.
For the background I masked my colored image first, then I went over the back with Distress Oxide Ink. To finish it off I stapled this to the cardbase. Before I go I just wanted to share that Gorjuss has released some mini images too, so make sure you check them out!
Thanks so much for stopping by!
I die cut a piece of Doodlebug Fun in the Sun paper using the MFT Blueprints #15. Then I adhered the piece to a top folding A2 size Turquoise card. I stamped each of the images from the Tropical Squidgies set onto some X-Press it Blending cardstock using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. Then I colored each of the images with Copics in the following colors:
Skin: E000, E01, E11, E71 & E93 Coconut Girl Hair: E42, E44 & E47 Pineapple Girl Hair: E44, E42 & YR31 Pineapple Top: YG93, YG95, YG97 & YG23 Flower, Sunglasses and Flip Flops : RV14 & RV17 Sunglasses and Flip Flops: BG11 & BG23 Coconut: YR24, E35 & E37 Pineapple: YR21, YR23 & YR24 Center of Sunglasses:C6, C4 & C2 Ground: W0, W2 & W4 Sky: BG0000 & BG000
I die cut the large and small Polaroid shapes from the Mamma Elephant Polaroid Fun set from some additional coordinating Pattern papers and then I added the colored image behind them and adhered them to the card front. I stamped the sentiment onto some Neenah Solar White cardstock and then I trimmed each of the words out and used them along the bottom of the cards. I added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear to parts of the images.

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! My style is Clean and Simple. I love the simplicity of the final project. I sometimes feel guilty with how quick it takes to make a card. So I have started to added some additional touches that I believe push the card to the next level! One of my new favorites is the NUVO Drops!
Today, I am using the Altenew’s Be Strong stamp set and Chameleon markers:
I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink to stamp the images onto the white cardstock. I used a couple orange and yellows Chameleon markers to color in the individual bulbs. To make the bulbs look more life-like, I covered each one with Glossy Accent When the drops dry, they give off a glassy look to the bulbs. A sentiment is stamped at the bottom of the card.
I used the following markers on today’s card:
