MarkerPop Challenge #3

Written by Samantha Peyton. Posted in Challenges, Tutorials

EDITED TO CHANGE END DATE: This challenge will end on July 29th!

Hello & welcome to the 3rd MarkerPop Challenge. This challenge is going to be so much fun because our theme could be used for any occasion or theme.  The week, the design team is working with funky & fresh stamp images from the lovely Stamping Bella brand. Stamping Bella stamps are unmounted, bare rubber stamps & they are truly unique and fun. MarkerPop offers a bunch of the latest Stamping Bella stamps, including their new Mo Manning stamps. Check them all out in store by clicking here!

MarkerPop Challenge #3: Black & White/Sepia
Do some Black & White coloring or Sepia coloring on your project. You can make any type of project you would like & you DO NOT have to use a Stamping Bella stamp. As long as you color with black and white, or sepia, anything goes. You may play along with other challenges, but excessive challenge pile-ons (7 or more challenges) will result in disqualification for our amazing prize. As always, have fun creating!

The prize this week is a Stamping Bella stamp of choice from the MarkerPop Store.

One entry will be chosen at random to receive our prize (see above!). Three additional entries will be chosen for the Top 3 based on their amazing coloring skills. The prize winner and top three can all proudly post their brag buttons on their blogs for the world to see! Entries are due on Sunday, July 29th at noon EST.

To go along with this week’s challenge, I have a black and white tutorial to share with you to get you started with your coloring. I used the super cute Altee’tude stamp from Stamping Bella in my video.

And here are some inspiration projects from the design team:

Tracy used some cool greys to create her black and white image. She used the super cute Uptown Girl Lolly and her Brolly stamp.

Melissa created some warmer grey & sepia tones for her romantic card. She used the beautiful Uptown Girl Catherine Nibbling Chocolate Stamp.

Marie created a gorgeous all sepia inspired card using the Mo Manning Buds Boy Stamp.

Our rules are the same as they were when we were iCopic, except we are now welcoming projects made with ANY MARKERS that we carry in the store: Copics, Memento, ShinHan Touch, Tim Holtz Distress and UniPosca.  If you need a refresher on the rules, please see our Challenge Rules page (located on the right hand side).
