MarkerPop: Silver Fairy


Hello everyone!    I am just so excited to get to help kick off our new MarkerPop Blog! Have you checked out our new MarkerPop online store? We have a lot of new products including new stamps (drool), new alcohol ink markers (heart goes pitter patter) and new embellishments (Christmas in July)! Treat yourself to a little eye candy and check it out! For our first "Tip/Technique Tuesday" I am going to share a card I created with a Wee Whimsy Stamp called Silver Fairy. This stamp was created by the wonderful Sylvia Zet. She has a whimsical style and the faces on her stamps are just adorable. They have a whimsy, innocence that communicates a trustful heart. Now isn't that what ALL good fairies are supposed to do? :D  

Copics Alcohol Ink Markers Used 
Skin Tones: E000, E11, R20 
Hair: C3, C5, C7, Opaque White Ink 
Clothing , wings and accessories: BG000, BG32, BG34, BG57 and CB 
Ground: W3, W0 Background: C0, B0000 (Copic faux watercolor), Opaque White Ink

Tip #1 Using a Colorless Blender in a "dabbing" method 
will give a whimsical, transparent look to the wings.

Tip #2 My card is a 4.25 in x 5.5 in (fits an A2 envelope). 
 As you can tell from my card,
 the stamp is a good size -measuring in at approximately 3.84 in x 3.8 in.
 If you want space on your card to allow your designer paper to show or 
if you want more space to embellish your card, 
partially paper piece the image so the wings extend from the mat on the focal image. 
The size of this stamp makes it wonderful for cards, 3-D projects and scrapbooks. The size is great for newbies to alcohol ink markers - There is plenty of room to color and practice blending!

I am linking this card with the following challenges: 
Make It Monday - Anything goes
Inspire Me Friday - Anything Goes
Always Crafting - Fairies or Mermaids
