MarkerPOP Color Challenge. I cannot tell you how many times a week while I am roaming the blogs and see a challenge, I say, "Oh I love this, I am going to enter." Then I either forget or I start a project, get interupted and miss the deadline, lol. But this time I am on IT! The challenge is to do a card Children/School related using Copic Markers. For those of you whom might not know MarkerPop used to be ICopic and they are my Copic Supplier, FAB customer service and decent prices with some super sales. The other part is that this week I wanted to do a more complex print n cut in Silhouette Studio, so I designed this silly fish, I did some point editing and color fill and am pretty pleased with how it turned out and they cut too, lol. I also did another try at the text to path function and it did a lot better than my prior attempt the pear, lol.
This is a standard A-2 card, first of all the fish, I did print them (printed a mirror image, also) out in a light orange and then I took my Copic Marker to them, I love doing blending on colored cardstock or printed images, your get a wonderful depth from it, for the fish I used YR27, YR68, for the eyes I blended with BG57. I then used a brown cardstock and punched out the circles with my EKSuccess punch and added a few here and there. The wave was cut with a Silhouette Library image and shadowed with BG13. The text to path "I am new to this school", was printed with the pen holder and my micron pen .05 onto white cardstock (did not want any chance of bleeding), it worked fine. I then airbrushed with BG11 and BG13, I then free cut into a water drop shape. For the bubbles I sprayed a piece of white cardstock again with BG11 and BG 13 and then punched with the EKSuccess punch again and did a little distressing on them to give depth. If you will click on the pic you will be better able to see the subtle blendings.
I played all day with this, got through at 3PM, which gave me an hour to unwind before fixing dinner, doesn't get much better than that. Have a great Wednesday, hugs
