SP & Co & MarkerPOP Blog Hop!

Hello everyone and welcome to the MarkerPOP! + SP & Company - Tina Wenke Collection Blog Hop!!!


MarkerPOP! is the home of premium markers plus lots more!
SP & Company is the home of cute and fun photopolymer stamps (made in the USA!), die tools, and a color line of buttons, ink and more!

Today we are teaming up to share some amazing projects using some of the awesome new stamps from the Tina Wenke Collection from SP & Company along with some of our favorite coloring tools from MarkerPOP.com.
If you are just joining us on the hop, you are going to want to start back at the beginning of the hop list which can be found at the end of this post!

I created two cards for today. I just LOVE Tina's designs and I couldn't pick just one. I started with this little cutie her name is Annie and the stamp is called "Annie Eating Ice Cream"


I used some of Echo Park's A Perfect Summer Papers to go with her.  I colored her with copics, inked the background with Distress inks and misted her with some Perfect Pearls for shine.  I added some Stickles to the clouds and her ice cream cone too. ;)

Next up I have another adorable stamp: "Bird with Balloons" I LOVE this one too. I am going to redo this technique on watercolor paper tomorrow.

 The technique is called finger stamping. You put your inks on a craft mat, spritz with water and use your fingers to apply the color to the paper. I spritzed my Distress inks with Perfect Pearls. I am so happy with the end results.  Here is a closer look:

Because I didn't do this on watercolor paper and because I was afraid of bleed I colored him and the balloons with Prismacolor Pencils. I masked the image off as I finger stamped and it came out perfect. No bleed what-so-ever.

That is all for me. Now for the good stuff....

Oh these cards are beautiful!

The cards are doubly delightful. Love that background technique on the cute birdie card and the glittery background on the ice cream girl card. Great paper choices and layering on the first card, not to mention the stitching on both cards. Great coloring on both cards.

I would be very upset if I were forced to choose between them because I wouldn't be able to.

Happiness is a bright cheerful card!! Double happiness came on your page with your two cards. Love them both, but am a little partial to the birdie.

Love the effect of your finger-stamping technique. I always thought I was messing stuff up when that happened...now I know I can make a whole background out of it!! Who knew???? :)
