Today's project is from ARTisan Dina Kowal.

I love this "There For You" digital image by Mo Manning especially because it's one that I requested. I'm drawn to huggy images, but sometimes a happy, cheerful hug image isn't appropriate for someone going through a hard time. I wanted one that expressed support and sympathy. Sooooo grateful to Mo for coming up with this image - it's perfect.

I printed the image in a very pale grey, and colored it using Touch Twin Markers. These are the colors I used:

Warm Hugs

Today's project is from ARTisan Dina Kowal.


All stamps and dies are from Impression Obsession, and I used a Sizzix texture plate to 'interpret' the squiggly layer of the sketch. Ha! Stamped in Memento Pear Tart and colored with Touch Twin Markers (GY173, GY175, Y42).

Touch Twin & MarkerPOP Blog Hop!

Welcome to the MarkerPOP! & Shinhan Touch Twin marker blog hop!

Our teams are joining today to bring you a fun filled hop featuring a variety of stamps carried at the MarkerPOP! store that have been colored with Touch Twin markers which are available at MarkerPOP!

The hop starts today and will be open until December 19th. Enter by commenting on all the blogs in the hop- see blog list below. MarkerPOP! will be giving away TWO prizes so make sure you comment on every stop along the hop!


About Shinhan Touch Twin markers:
Designed for artists, Touch Twin markers feature an advanced alcohol-based ink formula that ensures rich color saturation and coverage, with silky ink flow. Touch Twin Brush markers feature two nibs (Brush & Chisel) to achieve a wide range of strokes, from fine lines to wide color fills. The delivery of ink flow can be perfectly controlled to allow precision drawing. The ergonomically designed rectangular body is roll resists rolling on work surfaces and provides a perfect grip that avoids smudges and smears. A specially designed safety cap stacks neatly and prevents damage to the nibs. The Touch Twin marker contains an alcohol-based ink that doesn’t dissolve printed ink toner, allowing for odorless, vividly colored artwork on printed materials.

So glad you're hopping with us!  Our prize winners will be selected randomly from comments left on the blogs participating in the hop today. The more you comment, the better your chances of winning!

Just Swingin'

Today's project is from ARTisan Dina Kowal.

I printed out a digital image from Mo's Digital Pencil and colored in broad color blocks, as Sandy explains in her video. The colored and white areas (except for the face) were shaded with cool greys,and the background was colored in with blue greys. I think this may have been the first time I colored anything Fluorescent Green...

I borrowed the sketch from this month's challenge over at The Craft's Meow, and I'm also entering Oozak's monthly challenge, since my card has a Christmas theme! So much inspiration everywhere.
