Happy Day + ZIGs

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! Less than one year ago, I was scared of watercolors! I was scared of them! I threw away many projects, just because I was not happy with my watercolor skills. In fact, one of my goals last year was to work on my watercolor techniques! But when I got my hands on Zig Clean Color Markers, I fell in love!

Today, I paired up my Zig markers with the super cute Waffle Flower’s Happy Day stamp set:

I struggle when it comes to shadows. The Zig markers help out so much with that! I grabbed three shades of brown to color in the bear image.

Start with the lightest shade of brown and color the outline of the image. Using water and a paintbrush, spread the color from the outside towards the inside of the image.

Do the same with the middle shade of brown.

Now add the darkest shade of brown around the outer edges and spread the color towards the inside.

Now it is time to color in the rest of the image. To finish of this card, the sentiment is stamped and embossed in white onto a black strip of cardstock.

The following ZIGs were used on today’s project: 021, 047, 052, 065, 072, 081

Have a wonderful day!

Watercoloring Your Diecuts

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! This month the design team is going to be sharing a few of our favorite watercoloring supplies. I recently received my first Prima Confections Watercolor set. I fell in love with them! The watercolor is probably the thickest I have ever worked with!

Today, I am pairing up the watercolors with My Favorite Things dies. I love using watercolors to color paper when I cannot find the right shades of cardstock to work with!

 To start this card, I painted a variety of swatches using the different colors in the Tropical Confections set. I spaced the swatches out to allow room to fit the various dies.

Once the individual dies are cut, it is time to piece the card together! The Birdhouses die set includes the house, roof and the pole to assemble the house. There is also a couple little bird dies to add a little cute touch to your project.

The background panel is also covered with watercolor as well. I included a layer of grass diecut to add a little dimension to the card,

I wasn’t sure what I what kind of sentiment I wanted to use on this card. So I decided to leave it blank. I will be able to stamp a sentiment on the inside of the card that will fit whatever the occasion might be.

Thank you for stopping by today! Stop by the MarkerPOP blog for the list of supplies used on this card!

Have a wonderful day!

Chunky Thank You with Prima

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects), Uncategorized

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I hope your week has been a great one. It has been a busy one here, trying to get back to the normal routine after Spring Break. I had some neighbors helping me out, so I needed to come up with a fun thank you card to show my appreciation.

Today, I am working with Stampendous Chunky Thank You Cling Stamp and Prima Confections watercolors to create this card:

A stamped the image with black ink onto some watercolor cardstock. The image is colored in with Prima Confections watercolor paints.

***This is the first time I used Prima Confections paints. I am so pleased with how creamy and thick these paints are. I am not use to that thickness, so I will need to practice more with learning how to get light to dark shades of one color.***

To add some detail to the card, I added some sparkle to the butterflies by added a layer from the Wink of Stella pen. (It is hard to capture the sparkle in a photo.

To finish the card, I used a stitched rectangle die to cut out the panel with the image. The image is then attached to a black cardbase. I felt the card needed a little more detail, so I added a few drops of NUVO black Crystal Drops.

Thank you for stopping by today! Don’t forget, there are a few days left of the Copics Birthday celebration…be sure to join in for your chance to win!

Have a great day!

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
