Fun with Folds and Hair

Hello and welcome to our “Anything Goes” Friday post!

 Marie here and I want to share a card I created  with one of the beautiful Saturated Canary stamps called Neevah.   I love this stamp.  It give me the opportunity to work on “hair” and “folds” and   I love  using both of those techniques with my alcohol ink markers. .

MP041213bI used the following Copic  Sketch markers  

Skin Tones:  E11, E00, and E000 and a touch of R20 to the cheeks and lips.
Hair:   C1, C3, C5, C7, C9 and opaque white ink.
Dress:  R000, R81, R83, R89 and Cool Gray BS multiliner to make the circles in the dark shadows pop a litte more.
Ruffe  G40, G45, YG63 and G28
Stockings: E40, E42, E44
Shoes:  C0, C1, C3, C5 and opaque white ink.

The focal image was colored on Cryogen paper and I used the beautiful designer paper Vintage Basic by Whimsy Stamps.
Pearls and a bow complete my finished card.

 That’s all I have for today. I hope you will stop back tomorrow and see what wonderful creation Tina has for you!

Wishy Washy Project and Card!

Written by Michelle Pearson. Posted in 3D, Anything But a Card, Eye Candy (Projects)

It’s Michelle Pearson here today sharing some lovely washi tape!  I have this attraction to the stuff…and though it’s really tempting to just collect and hoard it….I’m trying really hard to use it and enjoy it!

I picked up this Butterfly Album from a clearance bin lately and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it!

This will be a mini album, and what better way to embellish the cover than with this uber-cool tape?!  I love the pink and orange versions, so thus the color scheme of my card and project was born….pink, orange and green!

The front cover I did up with the pink tape and added some pink gems on the butterfly body.

The back cover is done up with the orange tape and some flat copper nailheads for the butterfly body.

And then a card, because I’m the card girl…I *love* making cards…they are like mini pieces of art…the process of taking lots of bits and pieces and turning it into a cute card is so fun and relaxing to me!  Of course there is some MORE washi tape peeking out at the bottom of the card.

*Copic Markers:  YG23, E35, YR24, YR23, E02, E00, Y38, YR04, Y21, R85, R83, R81

Happy Bee Day

Written by Tracy Valure. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Good morning! Tracy here today.  Hope you have been having a great week so far. I am eagerly anticipating the weekend, as usual.  Hoping for a nice, laid back weekend. Maybe if the weather is good I can hit the beach even.

Beeday

The stamp I have used today is from Tiddly Inks and it is called Happy Bee Day!  It just screams spring to me. Love it.  The paper is from Echo Park, it’s called For the Record. I added some Princess Pink – Bakers twine and topped it with the sentiment that is included with the set.  I also added a bit of yellow distressing around the edges of my paper.

For the Happy Bee Day image, I colored it with copic markers. I did add some dark shading with a pastel pencil. The copic colors used are:

Body: Y11, Y15, E33 (brown pastel pencil)
Hair: E21, E23, E25, E29
Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E13

 

Thanks for stopping by today,

Tracy Valure



Springtime Wishes

Written by Angie Ha. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi everyone!  My name is Angie Ha, although some people have taken to calling me AHa which led to A*Ha Creations.  I’m super excited to be guest designing for MarkerPop for the month of April!  I’m from Lancaster, PA… Amish country.  I’m married to a wonderful, enabling husband for almost 8 years now and it’s probably his fault that I got so into all of the crafty stuff (he said I needed a hobby!) which led to my favorite addition – COPICS!  I just can’t seem to stop coloring!  I picked one up about two years ago, and just can’t get enough.

When I saw the Springtime Garden stamp from My Favorite Things, I  knew I had to color her up to usher in the spring weather – which can’t get here soon enough!  I stamped her out a few times and got to coloring.  I did up a few different versions, so I have TWO projects to share with you today.

The first project is a little tag:

MFT Springtime Wishes tag

 

I found the clear acrylic tag in my stash and splashed on some Copic Various Ink in BG49, B02, and V09.  The butterflies were also found in my stash and I airbrushed them with the same colors.

For project number two, I stuck with a card:

Springtime Wishes card

 

When I colored her up, I knew I had to pair her with Lawn Fawn’s Bright Side Paper. And I couldn’t just color her skirt, I had to do a little layering 😉  I love how it adds a little more natural shadow with just a little foam adhesive!

Layered Springtime Wishes

sorry this one’s a little dark, but look at the dimension!

Instead of fussy cutting the image for the card, I decided to keep it a rectangle to be layered on the card so I knew I had to ground her somehow.  Usually, I stick with Cs to ground, but she had to be standing in grass.

I hope you enjoyed my projects today, there’s plenty more on my blog, I’d love for you to stop by and have a look.  I’ll be back in two weeks with another project to share.

Until then, I hope you have sometime to get crafty and I encourage you to pick up this stamp and usher in the spring with me!

Angie
