Wagon Beauty!

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

Hi!  It’s Lisa here today, and surprise I have a watercolor card for you today, lol!  I hope you aren’t getting tired of them, but I’m having so much fun!  The stamp set I’ve used is called Garden Wagon Mini Set by Art Impressions (AI).  This company is a new one for MarkerPOP, and if you haven’t seen their sets you def. need to check them out!  They are innovative, pretty, cute, and funny.

I started by stamping my sentiment (from Mama Elephant), wagon and floral stems with Versafine Ink.  This ink is by far my favorite to use when I’m going to be watercoloring over my stamped images.  Next, I colored directly onto my floral dots with a variety of Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: Lilac, Purple, and Violet.  For my grass and stamps I used Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers: Olive Green and Deep Green and I hand drew some lines in.  Once I had all of the colors on the card I used a water brush to add some light touches to the flowers, and blended in the grass areas.  For the wagon I used Mid Gray and Green Gray.

I could have added a blue with my markers to create the sky, but I decided to take the easy way out and simply blended some Tumbled Glass Distress ink.  When everything was dry I ran the panel through my die cut machine with my Lacey Layers Waffle Flower Die.

The whole card was finished with patterned paper from the My Favorite Things Watercolor Wash Brights Paper Pack.  Thanks so much for joining me today, and I hope you’ll get a chance to play along in our recent challenge for your chance to win some goodies for yourself!

Happy Crafting!

Welcome Baby!!

Happy Tuesday everyone… I hope you all had a great Holiday weekend. Today I have a new video featuring a card using the Adorable Itty Bitty Welcoming Committee set from Neat & Tangled.

I started with a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock and traced the inside of a Stitched Oval Scalloped Edge Frame die from MFT with a pencil. Then I added some Salty Ocean and Mowed Lawn Distress Inks with a Paintbrush and some water. Once the area with dry I die cut the panel with the Stitched Rectangle die from the MFT Blueprints 15 die-namics set. Then I adhered the panel to a Turquoise A2 size card base. I added the Scalloped Oval frame which I die cut from some Neenah Solar White card stock. Then I stamped all the images from the Itty Bitty Welcoming Committee set onto a piece of Distress Watercolor Cardstock using VersaFine Black Ink. I colored the images in with Distress Markers and a paint brush. I used the following Markers:

Tumbled Glass, Mustard Seed, Mowed Lawn, Carved Pumpkin, Antiqued Linen, Tattered Rose, Spun Sugar, Pumice Stone and Wild Honey.

Once the images were dry I used the coordinating dies to cut them out and I adhered them to the card front. I stamped the sentiment using the Mini Misti and VersaFine Black Ink. I added some Gold and Clear Wink of Stella to parts of the images. This is a Fun set perfect for all Occasions.

You can see more details on how I created this card in the video below… Thanks for stopping by today! Don’t forget to enter our Copic Sketchbook Giveaway, find all the details here.

 


 

 

 

Faux Watercoloring Needs Love Too!

Written by lisascreativeniche. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello!  It’s Lisa here today, and as you’ve seen we’ve been focusing on all things watercoloring this month on the blog.  So I have a card to share that can still fall under the watercoloring tutorial, but with no paints or water… Now I know what you’re thinking, shut the front door!  But there are so many great products available now that give the impression of watercoloring, without the work!  Here are just a few of such products…

My Favorite Things Written In Water Stamp Set

 

SugarPea Designs Watercolor Brushstrokes

 

My Favorite Things Patterned Paper Wash 6 x 6 Paper Pad

Altenew Watercolor Wonders Stamp Set

 

And here is what I’ve created for my “faux watercolor” project…

To create this card I started by diecutting my sentiment into my “watercolored” patterned paper from the My Favorite Things Wash Paper Pad.  I made sure to keep all of the tiny inside cuts off to the side and in a pile so that I would have them when I was laying the word cuts back into place.  I then used two other papers from the same paper pad and die cut the words to inlay over my first cut. Once the sentiment was done I stamped my butterfly image from the newly released Beautiful Butterflies Stamp Set ,also by my Favorite Things, onto separate cardstock.  I then cut it out and adhered it to my cardbase.  Of course it wasn’t finished without some bling so I busted out my Pretty Pink Posh Clear Sequins, and ta-da!

I was able to achieve the watercolor look with out any mess.  Now don’t get me wrong I LOVE watercoloring, and there is no mess as far as I’m concerned, but if you shy away from the paints then I wanted to share with you another option.

Hope to see you play along in our latest watercoloring challenge for a chance to win goodies!

Watercolor Background with Altenew

Written by jpascarella. Posted in Eye Candy (Projects)

Hello, MarkerPOP friends! I love to work with bright colors, but I am switching it up today! Throughout the month, the design team is showcasing different watercolor products and techniques on the MarkerPOP blog!

Today, I am creating a watercolor background print. I am using the Altenew’s You Make Me Happy stamp set (currently out of stock, but check out the other Altenew floral stamp sets HERE) and ZIG Clean Color markers.

To start this card, I stamped the images with white ink and embossing powder. The embossing powder creates the raised edges to help keep the paint in the right place. I used soft colors to fill in the image. The stems are colored in using ZIG Clean Color – May Green (047 ). The center of the flower is colored in with Light Carmine (021). Light Pink (026) was used on the inside of the flower petals. To fill in the background, Light Blue (036) was used.  To finish the card, the simple sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink.
