Ribbon Coloring Tutorial & Snowman Card

Hi everyone!


It’s my day over on the MarkerPop blog so I have a Copic colored project to share with you. Since our MarkerPop weekly inspiration this past Monday was about custom colored embellishments, I wanted to incorporate that theme into my MarkerPop project for today.

I decided to make a quick video tutorial on how to color your ribbon with your Copics. This technique comes in very handy when the ribbon in your stash just isn’t the right color. Also, it is a great way to stretch your crafty budget. Just buy cream and white colored ribbons and you will be able to color them with any of your Copic colors for tons of possibilities!

Here is my video tutorial on how I colored the ribbon:


And here is a look at my finished project:


This adorable snowman image is from the Tina Wenke collection for Stampavie & this stamp is called Snow Family. This is one of my new favorite stamps! I wanted to do a rustic/traditional look, but this stamp could be colored so many different ways. This is the first time I colored brownish snow people & I really like the effect that it had.

I colored the image in with the following Copic colors:
W0, YR24, R46, R59, B91, B32, B34, Y35, G19, E31, E34, E35, E37, E50, E51, E53, E57, E59, E49

To accent my card, I used a decorative brad from the My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland pack. I also added some Rock Candy Stickles as the snow underneath the little snow people.

The brown patterned paper is from the Winter Fun collection from Carta Bella. The red striped patterned paper is from the Winter Wonderland collection from My Mind’s Eye.

The sentiment is from the Filled with Cheer Emma stamp set from SP & Company.

I hope that you enjoyed today’s tutorial. I will be back again tomorrow with another intro video for ya. Have a fabulous day!
