Matching Colors with Copics!!

Written by Holly Endress. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Happy Friday everyone… Are you ready for the weekend? it’s Holly here today and we are celebrating Copic Marker’s 30th Birthday all month long. Today I have a card and a short tutorial for you on using Copic Color Charts to color match your images and cardstock.

I colored in this super cute The Stuffie Gang Stamp from Stampingbella using my Copic Markers. If you love coloring with your Copics and like to have a coloring guide these stamps are great for that. They have a full color photo on the front of the package which is great for a guide. Another great way to figure out what colors to use is a Color Chart. Copic has a great Blank Color Chart on their site that you can color in with your Copics, so you have an extact match. I use the color chart to match pattern papers I want to use with my project with the colors I will use on the images.

On today’s project I started with the pattern paper and used the chart to find the colors that matched and then based my Copic choices on those colors. Here I have a piece of the Lawn Fawn Perfectly Plaid Petite Fall 6×6 paper. I’m matching the Orange color in the paper using my Hex Chart. You can use any chart that you hand colored to find your colors. I’m going to use YR12 as my lightest orange color. You can do this with a Colored image on a stamp package too. You will have a general guideline of what colors they may have used or are recommending.

For the Brown colors I’m going to use E44 and it’s coordinating colors.

Once I knew which colors I needed to match the paper I started coloring the image. The image is stamped onto some Copic X-Press it blending card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black Ink. I colored the image in and then I added a Frame from the pattern paper that I die cut with the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangle Frames. Then I adhered the panel to a top folding card base.

I stamped the sentiment onto some White card stock and die cut it using the Blueprints #27 Die-namic from MFT. Then I cut an additional banner from some the coordinating patter paper and added that as well. Super cute, I need to get more of these out of my stash and color this month!

I used the following Copics:

YR12, YR15, YR18, E40, E42, E44, E47, E49, Y21 & YR23. YG11, YG13, YG17, E50, E53, W3, E70, E71, E74, E77. C6, C9, 100, BG0000, BV20, C1, C4, BG11, BG45, BG49.

Hi!  It’s Lisa here today and as we are celebrating Copics® this month with an incredible giveaway, click here to find full details on how you can be entered to win over $300 in goodies! Woot Woot!

A few weeks ago I had shared a post using my Copic® Markers on vellum, and so I thought I would share a few more step by step photos with how I did this on a different project.  Todays project features the newly released Be Strong Stamp Set by Altenew.  I love the fun font used with some really uplifting sentiments, plus it’s so different from the typical sets I buy that I just had to have it!

On this card the light strings and the cactus are all embossed and colored on vellum.  When creating a project like this is best to have a thicker vellum, mine is 65# so it can hold up to the embossing and is not likely to tear when I am coloring it.  Now I will share a few close ups of the coloring done on the lights…

Step 1. I embossed the lights onto my velum with gold embossing powder.

2. Next I turn it over and colored with Y15 and Y17.  Tip:  You always want to go darker with your color choices as the vellum will really soften them up.  This is the back side so the colors look a little brighter at the moment.

3.  This is another backside view showing that I’ve added a darker Yellow (YR24) to the lights, because they were barely showing through.  I’ve also added the blue to the top of the lights with B28.  Tip: Your coloring will not look “beautiful” or “precise” on the backside of the vellum, you merely want to get the color down so that when you flip it over the embossed edges will cover any imperfections and only the color will show through.

Also note that you will not really be able to blend with your markers on the vellum.  I do add layers of color, as you can see on the cactus with the greens (YG06, YG17, G29), but you need to wait for each color to dry before adding the next or you will erase the first color.  What you are mainly doing is layering the colors up on the backside, and when you flip the image over you will see what appears to be a watercolored look of blending.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’ll give this technique a try.  Why not try it with our latest challenge?

Happy Crafting!

Mother’s Day – Avery Elle

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! It seems a little early to be making a Mother’s Day card, but did you know that the UK equivalent is later this month on March 26th?

Today’s card using the new Avery Elle’s Mother’s Day stamp set, paired up with some Touch Markers:

I used the word stamp to create the background for the card. The stamp is stamped in black ink at an angle, repeatedly. The floral image is stamped and colored in. The matching die, for the Mother’s Day stamp set, is used to cut out the floral image. The floral image is then attached with foam tape. To add a little more detail to the card, I glued on a few clear droplets.

This is my first project using the Touch markers. The colors are so vibrate. I cannot wait to get my hands onto more colors very soon! Check out the colors available in the MarkerPOP store, HERE.

The following Touch Twin markers were used on today’s card: R10, R15, RP89, RP292, G49, G54, Y34

Happy Friday, MarkerPOP friends! Who is ready for the weekend? I know that I am. My allergies have been strong this weekend and I am ready to curl up on the couch and do nothing…well, in my dream world anyway. Kid activities are going to be keeping me busy!

With Spring here, at least in my part of Texas, it is time to start planting in my garden. So I have been having flowers on the brain for the last few weeks. So I decided to create a floral card for this week’s card.

Today’s card using the ZenFloral and Not too Shabby stamp sets from Honey Bee Stamps:

To start the card, I used watercolor card stock and stamped the jar image. For the flowers, I stamped the center flower onto the cardstock. I stamped an additional flower onto some masking paper and cut the image out. I layer the masking flower on top of the center flower. I stamped two more flowers, one on each side.

I used ZIG Clean Color markers to color in the images. To finish the card, I cut the panel out using a scalloped rectangle die. I also cut out a panel of kraft cardstock for the back of the card. The sentiment is stamped in black at the bottom of the card.

Be sure to check out the rest of the Honey Bee Stamps available in the MarkerPOP store!

ZIG Clean Color markers used on today’s card – 010, 032, 046, 050, 052, 065, 070
