Hi everyone.. It’s Holly here today and I have a new video tutorial on creating a Galaxy Background using Distress Oxide Inks and the Adorable Space Explorer set from My Favorite Things.
I started with a piece of Watercolor paper and I added Distress Oxide Inks in: Worn Lipstick, Wilted Violet, Fossilized Amber, Faded Jeans, Cracked Pistachio, Broken China & Black Soot Distress Ink. I used my heat tool to dry the paper in between each color. Once I had the background the way I liked it I added some White Gesso to create Stars. Once the panel was completely dried I used the MFT Blue Prints 15 to die cut the panel. Then I adhered it to a White top folding card base.
I stamped each image onto some X-Press it blending card stock using Lawn Fawn’s Jet Black ink. This is my favorite paper to use with my Copics. The blend so smooth and the ink doesn’t saturate the paper as much so you save on ink. One tip when using Black Copic friendly ink.. give it a few minutes to dry before you stay to color. Sometime the outline can smear if you start coloring too soon. Trust me it’s worth the extra minute.
Then I colored them in with Copics in the following colors.. Skin: E50, E51, E21 & E04 Balloons: BG10, BG11, BG13, V12, V15, V17, Y32, YR31 & Y35 Hair: E23, E25 & E27 Space Suit: N6, N4, N2 & N0/ B24 & B26, R24 & R29. I used the same colors in the Planets and Stars. I also added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear to parts of the images.
I used the coordinating dies to cut the images out and then I used Blueprints 27 to die cut a frame from some Black Glimmer paper. I adhered the frame with some Foam Tape. Then I added each image with some additional foam tape. I die cut the banner from Blueprints 27 from some Neenah Solar White card stock and stamped the sentiment in VersaFine Black ink.
You can see more details on how I created this card in the video below.. and don’t forget to check out our Copic Sketch Book Giveaway!!

Check out what the Design Team created below to help get you started….
We can’t wait to see what you create!!!
Hello, MarkerPOP friends! This is the last day for Teacher Appreciation Week for our local schools. So I have been working on a few cards to hand out to our teachers. I found it challenge it make a card for my son to give to his teacher. I wanted the card to share some of his personality.
This month, the design team will be using a variety of different alcohol markers. One of my favorite marker brand is Chameleon Markers. I love how easy these markers are to use. The blending comes so easy with these markers.
Today, I am working with the Lawn Fawn’s Out of This World and a bunch of Chameleon markers.
I wanted to create a scene in the center of the cut out of the card. To start the card, I stamped the planet images and colored them with the alcohol markers. The spaceman image is also stamped onto white cardstock, colored in, and cut out. I used a few different grays to color in the background of the scene.
To add some additional elements to the card, I added glossy accents to the spaceman’s mask. I added “stars” to the scene, by adding enamel drops. The sentiment is stamped and embossed ink white on black cardstock. The cardstock is then cut out in a strip and attached to the card.
The following Chameleon markers were used to color in this card: RD2, RD4, VO2, VO4, OR3, OR4, YO2, YO3, CG5, CG8, BR2, PR4, BG4, BL3, BL6, BG4, PK3, NU1, NU2
Thank you for stopping by! Have a great day!
