My GD Gig At MarkerPOP!

MarkerPOP is an online destination for artists looking for inspiration and an outlet to share a common love for markers, especially Copic & Touch markers. The MarkerPOP store carries inkers & mists, papers and pads, stamps & dies, embellishments & accessories. A new weekly challenge is posted every Monday on the MarkerPOP Blog to help keep your creative juices flowing.  

On March 5, 2017, THIS card made it to the Top 3 for the Marker Pop Challenge #114 Be My ValentineI was so thrilled that my card was chosen, and even more thrilled that I was invited to Guest Design for Marker Pop #119 - Watercolor Florals.  What a lovely opportunity! When pondering my design, I ran across this gorgeous Hero Arts wood mounted stamp that has been in my stash for a very long time. It certainly is the perfect image for a Watercolor Floral challenge, so I inked it up with VersaMark ink, embossed it with white EP, and colored it with Zigs and a water brush. It was hard to see what I was coloring at first, and really fun to see it come to "life" as I added color and water. The inlaid sentiment is cut with PTI's Wet Paint dies.

Please head on over to the MarkerPOP Blog and see the gorgeous inspiration by the Design Team and Guest Designers. There are some wonderful prizes to be had. You can see all the details in the challenge post. Grab your watercolors and brushes and play along!

Stamps: Hero Arts Marion's Bouquet

Paper: Strathmore Bristol Paper, PTI Lavender Moon and True Black
Accessories: Filigree White EP, Zig Clean Color Real Brush Markers, Zig Detailer Water color Brush, PTI Wet Paint dies
