Dimensional Coloring: Eggstra Special Easter

mp032715aHello and WELCOME!
Marie here with another card and video for you today.
I really loved the stamp set by Lawn Fawn that I used last week so I decided to use another stamp in the same set for today!
I thought it would be a good time to re-visit some basic coloring techniques.
We love having new people join us here at MarkerPOP!
It's a place to learn and support each other as we learn new techniques.
This will be a super basic video that shows the difference between
"flat coloring" and "dimensional coloring". I hope you like it! :D

the cheesecloth and area Gesso  was sprayed with some rose colored

Hello, My Friend!


Hello and Welcome!
 I want to share my latest card with you!
I am still in a "Spring" mood so I wanted to showcase some beautiful paper
from Paper Temptress that works so perfect for Spring themed cards!


Look at how beautifully this gorgeous paper embosses!
Look at the detail!    Love this paper!
Heavenly White 120#
X-Press It Blending Card
JellyBean Green Pop Tones 65#
Banana Split Pop Tones 65#Grape Jelly Pop Tones 65#


The Tilda image by Magnolia was colored with Copic Markers on
 X-Press It Blending Card.  I just love this paper!
It is so smooth and you Copics just glide.
I adhered the JellyBean Green Pop Tones Banana Split Pop Tones and Grape Jelly Pop Tones  on a piece of white cardstock and then ran it through my Big Kick using "Lattice"  Embossing folder by Life Style Crafts.   I don't know why, but I think this embossing folder looks so much like Spring!
Don't you just love how the Pop Tones 65# paper picks up the embossed impression?
I hope you enjoyed this little card.
Be healthy and make some time for crafting and doing what you love to do!

A Breath of Spring!

There is still a nip in the air so I thought I would create a card with a 
Spring theme to remind us.... it won't be far away!   
Sunshine, flowers and the sweet breath of Spring! 

I used the background that I created with alcohol ink last week.     
I thought it would make a gorgeous egg 
with the beautiful die from Poppy Stamps called Ribbon and Bow Egg. 

I hope you have a beautiful day and I will see you at our

You're No Bunny Til Some Bunny Loves You!


Hello and welcome!
Marie here with a card I created to help us get in the mood for Spring,
sunshine and Chocolate Easter Eggs!As you know... I am a chocoholic!   

I know it can be a very busy time of year so I thought a simple, easy to create card would  be in order.


I used 120# Heavenly White cardstock for the base card.  It is firm, white and a very smooth finish.
I really like the fact that it holds up well as a card base and it holds it's shape!
That is one of the important things to me when selecting a card base.
The  base layers and focal image are from Pop Tones and it's Jellybean Green  100#.
It worked really well with the Cottage Cutz die I used.
The bright and beautiful yellow layer is also from PopTones and it's 100# weight called Lemondrop.  
It's super easy and it makes such a pretty Easter or Spring card!
Now all we need is the chocolate bunnies and jelly beans!

air compressor and sea foam sponge.

My YouTube Tutorials can be found HERE
Copic Sketch Markers
Airbrush Air Compressor  Optional
ABS N1 Kit - 
(To use if you want to use a compressor or just use an Air can without compressor)
If you plan to do a lot of airbrushing,   a compress or and ABS N1 kit is the way to go!
ABS 2 Starter Kit  - To  see if you like it.
If you just want to try airbrushing before jumping into a larger system or you need a really portable system without much fuss, use the ABS-2. Uses Aircan D60, which hooks directly into the air grip
Great for a trial.   Air cans are not the way to go if you want to do a lot of airbrushing!
