TTC07 - Animals

There's a new challenge up at the Touch Twin Markers & More Challenge blog - this time we're using our markers to create projects with an animal theme. We hope you'll join the fun! The whole team is working with the same stamp image from The Stamps of Life today...we are so thankful to them for sponsoring our challenges this month!!I had fun coloring this sweet little puppy - I tend to color with a heavier hand, so this time I concentrated on slowing down and working in lighter strokes.
These are the Touch Twin Markers that I used:

Here's a short video showing how I used a waterbrush filled with rubbing alcohol to color the background of my image:

You can visit the Touch Twin Markers & More Challenge blog for all the details if you'd like to play! Don't have a blog? That's OK. Just post to any online gallery with the keywords TTC07 and touchtwin. Don't have Touch markers? That's OK too for now. Starting in January we will require using our markers, but for now you can use any coloring medium. Have fun!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. So cool! I too have this doggie image. (Isn't he/she the cutest?!! Now I will have to try your technique... but, alas, with another alcohol company's markers.

  2. Dina,
    Nice effect. I dig this technique and have tried it with a few different types of card stock. What paper do you think gives the best results? Thanks for sharing!

    Take care and STAY POSITIVE!

  3. Adorable card Dina and thank you for the technique video. I really like that you share what colors of makers you use.
