I fall in love a little bit more with this brand every time I use a DeNami Design image; they are all just so adorable & sweet!
On today’s card, I’m using Sweetheart Mimi; it’s such a delicate image, perfect for Valentine’s Day coming up.
What I did, though, was stamp her twice on different kinds of paper and colored with different mediums to see what the difference would look like. Here is what Distress Ink water coloring versus Copic ink coloring looks like:
On this 1st image, I stamped her with Versafine Onyx Black pigment ink onto Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor Paper; then I painted the image with water, my water brush, and Tim Holtz Distress Ink.
If you’ve never seen this technique before, here is a good video showing the same process that I used:
This 2nd image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black Ink onto X-Press It Blending Paper, and colored with Copic Sketch Markers
I don’t have a favorite of the two; I love them both! The watercolor ink looks softer, and the Copic ink is more pronounced.
On both images, I added Glossy Accents to all the hearts and her shoes; that ended up looking great!
NOW, I have a bit of cool news to share!
I’ve been enjoying (more like, loving!) being a part of the MarkerPop design team for almost a year now (here’s the post where I made the announcement that I was going to be joining them); every person I work with and all my fellow designers are just wonderful people!
Starting tomorrow, I will be stepping in to take the Design Team Leader position! Kelli has been phenomenal to work with: always helpful and encoraging, always right on top of questions and keeping us all in-line and on our toes (hee hee!). It’s my first DT Leader position, so I can only hope to fill her shoes as well as she did. I’m glad she’s sticking around to ease me into the position; and, my fellow designers are awesome ladies, so that totally heps, too 😀
Wish me luck!
Have a great rest-of-the-weekend, and Happy Crafting!
