25 Days of Christmas: Day 7 + Blog Hop!

Hi everyone! Welcome to the MarkerPop Tina Wenke blog hop! I decided to make an extra special project for my 25 Days of Christmas Day 7 since it was also for my hop project.

Today MarkerPop is teaming up with artist and designer Tina Wenke to bring you a fabulous day of Tina Wenke inspired Christmas projects.
If you haven’t heard of Tina Wenke, here is a little info about her. Tina is an artist and designer who enjoys crafting, too. Her artwork and designs can be found on many different products like greeting cards, stationery, gifts, and of course stamps and paper crafting!ย  Tina’s work is beautiful & MarkerPop is so happy to be carrying her stamp designs (by Stampavie) & Tina also has a gorgeous line of patterned papers available at her online store.
We are so lucky to be hopping with Tina’s products today. Each designer will share beautiful inspiration using Tina Wenke stamps & papers.ย  Make sure to hop along the designer list & see what everyone created today. Here is my project:



I used this super duper adorable Tina Wenke image called, “Making Snow Angels”. I have used a number of Tina Wenke images for my Copic coloring & I really find them so much fun to color! This one was definitely fun to color!

I used the follow Copic colors:

  • For the skin: E000, E00, E21, E02
  • For the hair: E49
  • For the boots/scarf: E70, E71, E74, E79
  • For the reds: E24, E27, E29
  • For the greens: YG21, YG23, YG25
  • For the snow: BG0000, BG000, BG01
  • For the jeans: B93, B95, B97, B99
  • For the white on the hat: W0

I wanted to do something extra special with the colored image so I added some snow/ice looking goodies. For the inside of the snow angel shape, I used Rock Candy Stickles. Then for the outside of the snow angel area, I used Rock Candy Crackle Paint. Both of these products are Ranger Tim Holtz products. Unfortunately, these products caused my Copic coloring to bleed! EEK! I was a little heartbroken that my coloring got messed up, but I still thought that it looked good enough to use on my project. But that leads me to my expert tip for today. . .

EXPERT TIP #7: Test, test, test!
When using a new liquid embellishment to add dimension & texture to your coloring, always test it out on a test page. Don’t make the same mistake I did and just apply whatever to your stamped image and mess up your hard work.

I made a little video so you could see the products & the Copic bleeding up close. I also wanted to warn my other Copic loving friends that this can happen.

Here’s a still shot where you can really see the Copics bleeding:

If I used these products on my copic coloring again, I am going to have to be very careful NOT to get the liquids onto my colored areas.

After the coloring was done, I matted that layer on some cardstock.

I then created some patterned paper strips I matted them onto some white cardstock. Three of the patterned papers were designed by Tina Wenke. The paper with the little houses on it is from the My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland 6×6 paper pad that is available at MarkerPop.

The card measures 5.5 inches square. At the bottom I stamped a sentiment from the SP & Company Filled with Cheer Emma stamp set.

The last thing I did was I added some twine from The Twinery & a decorative brad from the My Mind’s Eye Winter Wonderland pack.

Now, let’s talk prizes!
Tina Wenke has generously donated a prize of 2 stamps (1 of her Winter designs and 1 Spring design) plus a pack of her Winter Papers & MarkerPop is giving away a $15 gift certificate. One lucky winner will win it all!

  1. Your card is adorable. I love the sweet little guy you coloured in so nicely for it. That is a shame though about it bleeding. Would it work better if next time you needed a snowy effect you stamped two, added the snow to the base image, coloured in the little guy separately and then after cutting him out added him to the snow covered background? He’s too cute to not use again and I love the idea of the snow around him.
    Thanks for sharing your work and the tip. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. OMG This is soooo cute! I absolutely LOVE the mistake! It’s a HAPPY ACCIDENT as us artists refer to this sort of thing.
    It really adds to the natural snowy feel. You’re sooo good. HUGS
