I have been continuing through the challenge and here are this week's updates.  


My first spinner card

My first spinner card

This was created by using some patterned paper, my nesting circle dies, a hello die, and a Stampin' Up stamp. I colored the image using Copics and then drew a "back" of the image with a Copic Multiliner. 


A window card

I made this card with a coordinating Stamp and Die set from Stampin' Up.  I used a piece of acetate for "glass" in the window, I colored the images in Copics and did the background with Distress Ink.

Tomorrow I will be featuring the Chiffon Collection from QuickQoutes, I'll be showing how to make a Box Card. Happy Crafting!

Hi everyone, Gabriela here with a video tutorial about ways to use your PowderPuff Chalking Inks. I typically use inks for distressing edges, but there are many other ways to use them. I will be showing how to make a patterned background using a few paper stencils and some ink blenders.

I try to color as often as I can and I am trying a bunch of different mediums, but this specific challenge is for markers, so for today's post, I've included a mix of watercolor and marker. 


A nice note for someone. 

A nice note for someone. 

I stamped my image and then used a Molotow masking pen to cover it while I did the watercolor background. Once that was dry, I peeled off the mask and did my coloring.  To finish it I added some rain stones from Paper Trey Ink and stamped the sentiment. 

These stamps are from Stampin' Up, the watercolors are Kuretake, and the markers are Copics. Check out the challenge (and a great website) at Happy crafting!
