Thank You, with Tombow & Lawn Fawn

Written by Valerie Ward. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

I was THRILLED when I saw a couple weeks ago that MarkerPop (MP) is carrying Tombow Dual Brush Pens! You see, long, long ago, Tombows were the first coloring medium I ever used when I started stamping & coloring. I loved them then, but I stopped using them because Copics entered my world next and took over my heart, and also because MP didn’t carry them…BUT THEY DO NOW!! So this month’s Watercoloring focus gave me the perfect excuse to take out my Tombows again, and rekindle our relationship (lol)!

Here’s a great video by Tombow demonstrating different ways to use these markers:

For my card, I pulled out a lovely older Lawn Fawn set, Flutter By.

I stamped the images with Ranger Jet Black Archival Ink (available in this mini ink pads set) onto Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Cardstock. There are many ways to color with these markers. For this project, I wanted bold color; so added the ink directly onto the paper, then used the Colorless Blender N00 to pull the ink out into the image which creates a lighter tone and shadowing effect. You can see this technique in this next Tombow video starting at 1:03:

When I was done coloring them, I die cut the images out. I decided to make thIs card a Thank You card, so I used the Lawn Fawn Thank You Border die for the sentiment. I cut that sentiment 3 times and glued them all together using my Fine Point 1mm X-Press IT Glue Pen to create a “thick” sentiment for added depth. I mounted the sentiment onto a banner cut from the Lawn Fawn Everyday Sentiment Banners die set.

The background paper is from My Favorite Thing’s 6×6 Itsy Bitsy Polka Dots Paper Pack, and I die cut it using the largest die from Lawn Fawn’s STAX Scalloped Rectangle Cut Set

For some sparkle, I painted the butterfly with my Zig Clear Wink of Stella Brush Glitter Pen Marker. Then I added Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Cupped Sequins in 4mm, 6mm, and 10mm.

I will definitely be using these markers again! FYI, you can get them in Sets of 10, or in singles. Thanks for stopping by, and I hope I’ve encouraged you to check these beauties out!

Watercoloring with Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It’s Lisa here with you today and I have a Hello card that features one of the My Favorite Things Background Stamp Sets and Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers.  These markers are fabulous for coloring and watercoloring, and I find the colors to be so vibrant just take a peek…

This background stamp set is called Floral Fantasy, and it is exactly that!  I love all of the details and zen tangle look to it!  For my card I opted to color everything but the flowers.  Kind of backwards, huh? hehehe!  I thought it might be fun to make all of the background images front and center, and I do love the way it turned out.  Here is a look at what it first looked like before I trimmed the image down for the needs of my card…

For my sentiment I decided to die cut the hello from Lawn Fawn three times, adhering them all together and adding some sparkle to the top layer with a Spectrum Noir Clear Glitter Pen.

I then finished my card off with a few layers of cardstock panels and some Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins.

Thanks so much for stopping by today and Happy Crafting!

Happy Saturday everyone.. It’s Holly here today and before I get to my project I wanted to let you know there are just a few days left to enter our Copic Marker Birthday Celebration Giveaway. The contest will end on April 4th and we will announce the winners on April 13th. You can find all the details in this post here.

My project today uses products from Avery Elle and My Favorite Things.

I started out by stamping the MFT Watercolor Stripes background onto a piece of Neenah Solar White using Peacock Ink from Lawn Fawn. Then I used the Large Rectangle from the MFT Blueprints 15 die-namics set and a circle from the Inside/ Out Stitched Circles Stax from MFT. I adhered the panel to a White top folding card base using some foam adhesive.

I stamped the sentiment onto a banner die cut using the Pierced Banner Layers die set from Avery Elle using Lawn Fawn Jet Black ink. I also stamped the images from the Avery Elle Pegasus Duo stamp set using the same ink onto some X-Press it Blending Card stock. I colored them in with the following Copic Markers:

BG45, BG49, B0000, B000,B00,Y11,Y13, Y15, Y21, Y26, R000, R00, C0, C2, C4, C6, C8 & 0

I adhered the pegasus and they other images with some foam and tape adhesive. Then I added some Spectrum Noir Sparkle Pen in Clear to parts of the images. For some extra Sparkle I added some Pretty Pink Posh Sparkling Clear Mixed sequins.

You can see how I created this card in the video below.

Thanks for stopping by today!

 


Copic Various Ink Refills and Backgrounds

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hi!  It is Lisa here with you today, and I’m super excited to share a new to me technique with all of you! Todays technique is all about your Copic Refill Inks, and how to create your own dreamy and faux watercolor backgrounds.  Check it out…

First you will need glossy paper and your Copic Various Ink Refills.  I used old glossy photo paper that I had scraps of and it worked perfectly.

Next you will remove the lids of all of them so that you are able to add drops from each color quickly to your paper.  I made sure to keep my lid lined up behind my tube so I could keep them straight and know when to add a new color.

Yes, it looks like a whole lot of nothing but drops… but as you add each color letting them mix as you go you can really see the background form.  Sometimes I would let one layer dry before adding another drop of a different color.  I also used the Colorless Blender Various Ink while the other inks were wet to help spread the color and to create unique ripples.

And here is a picture of it dry and done…

My first intent with the finished piece was to die cut various shapes out of it, but after I saw the finished results I couldn’t bare to cut it so I decided to use it in it’s entirety on my project…

I just love how this turned out!  Other products used to create my card include Sugar Pea Designs, Altenew, and Pretty Pink Posh.  Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you’ll give this technique a try!

Happy Crafting!
