We are the same great company that you have come to know - just a fun new ooh! Check out all the new and wonderful products at MarkerPop!
We have a NEW MarkerPop Challenge that starts today! Our challenges will start every Monday at 8:00a.m. Now isn't that a GREAT way to start the week? There will be fabulous prizes weekly to a lucky recipient. In addition to the weekly challenge the MarkerPop Design Team will knock their socks off to bring you inspiration, new ideas and techniques to entice you to get out those markers and start coloring!
Today's challenge theme is : Color fur or hair. The design team has used some of the MarkerPop products. I have used the adorable clear Milton & Co stamp called Milton with Poppy (Wild Rose Studio). I have a few of the Milton images and I just love the color them up! I think he has the most adorable face. It is a great image to create fur using your Copic or the Touch ShinHan alcohol ink markers.
The card I am sharing with you today is from Wild Rose Studio caed Milton with Poppy. I just love this little stamp! It comes with Milton holding a poppy that is fun to color and a sentiment. This stamp measures about 4 in x 3 in and is a perfect size for card making. I have several of the Milton images and they are my "go to" stamps when I am coloring fur with my Copic alcohol markers. We colored ALOT of fur in Suzanne Dean's alcohol ink marker classes at CMC and I can truthfully say I never get tired of grabbing another furry image!!! I think it is one of my favorite techniques!
