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!

Today I’m featuring a bunch of new products in the MarkerPop store! First, my set of Zig Clean Color Brush Markers, and then My Favorite Things‘ (MFT) new (and a tad older!) stamp & die sets. 

I created a fun interactive card that combines these MFT products: 

 All the images are colored with my Zig Clean Color Brush Markers and my Water Brush onto Distress Watercolor cardstock.

I integrated a couple trusty Lawn Fawn dies into this project, Grassy Border and STAX Large Stitched Rectangle. The patterned papers are MFT’s: Dots & Stripes Neutral and Subtle Plaids. These Pretty Pink Posh (PPP) cupped sequins were such a cute addition to this sweet card:

And the cute googly eyes on the frog are PPP Silly Eyes 4mm.

You Have Fabulous Style…

Hi!  It is Lisa here with you today and I have a sweet little camping scene to share with you today that I have created with the Avery Elle Glamper Campers Stamp Set, Zig® Clean Color Real Brush Markers, Gansai Tambi Watercolors, and My Favorite Things Blueprints 31.  Take a peek…

Clean Color Real Brush Markers Used: Light Green, Yellow Green, Mustard, Yellow, Pink Fl. Pink, Light Carmine, Wine Red, Light Violet, Lilac, Light Blue, Cobalt Blue, and Black.

For all of the stamped images I used the Clean Colors, because of their vibrant and fun colors.  Plus I love that you can use them with or without water.  For the banner I simple colored and for most everything else I used them as a watercolor.  Now for the background I used my Gansai Tambi Watercolor Set because I had a large area to cover, and I am just not very good using the markers on larger areas.  I also like being able to add layers of colors when creating backgrounds and the Gansai Tambi are just easier for me to do this.

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you are getting a chance to join us in our watercoloring challenges this month!  They are located on the right side of the blog!

Happy Crafting!

Beautiful Inside & Out

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

This month on the MarkerPop blog we are focusing on different watercoloring mediums! And to tell you the truth, I was pretty unsettled with this – lol! This is because I am pretty much a Copic girl. I’ve used watercoloring pencils before, and they can be SO beautiful; I’ve colored with Distress inks, and they can be amazing! But to be honest, I never felt like I could get the look like I wanted. Then, along came Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers; ohhh, I was very, very curious, but I never took the plunge to order them. That’s why I was pretty excited that this month gave me the excuse to HAVE to try them!

Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers are available in 80 colors; here is the entire color chart:

You can buy sets or singles of the Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers; I chose to dive in with a medium size set, the Set of 24. I felt it had a good range of colors ranging from all the basics to a few “in-betweens” for each color group. But there are smaller sets (Set of 6, the Set of 12, or even 4 different Sets of 4 are available) if you want to start smaller. And then there are the larger sets that are available (Set of 36Set of 48, and the Set of 60!). Here’s the chart that shows 4 of the sets available (24, 36, 48, 60):

Here’s a great video by Jennifer McGuire showing & demonstrating these great markers:

OK, on to my card for today; now remember, this was my first time using these markers! And I’ll tell you, I was thrilled with them! You can get a completely different look than mine today; for example, check out Lisa’s project yesterday where she’s also using these markers! Mine is a very solid, dark color, and hers is very light (& gorgeous!).

For my card, I’m using and older set by Altenew (I have just recently become obsessed with Altenew, so my collection is very small, but growing! I’m featuring the Oriental Orchids stamp set (they have a coordinating die set, also).

The colors I used for this card are:

After coloring, I painted some Zig Wink of Stella Yellow onto the center of the flowers; it changed the colors from a dark red to a red-with-a-hint-of-yellow. It looks very pretty in person! 

Then I painted Zig Clear Wink of Stella onto the sentiment. Now, I felt the card was lacking in something, so I pulled out Perfect Pearls Mist in Perfect Pearl, and spritzed the entire card; it gave it a great shimmer. My final touch was adding Pretty Pink Posh Marshmallow sequins in 4mm and 6mm

Have a wonderful day, and Happy Crafting!
