MarkerPop - Creating Multiples

Good morning again everyone, I am back for my second post of the day.  One more and then a little rest from posting.  This time I am posting for MarkerPop Tips and Tricks Tuesday.  My tip of the day is how to create multiple cards that you want to look exactly the same without taking more time out of your day then you may have.  Christmas is slowly creeping up on us and I like to make as many Christmas presents as I can.  I feel like anyone can go out and buy a present but a handmade present is truly unique and shows that I put my time and energy into making a gift for the recipient.

So onto my tip.  When wanting to create several duplicate cards I scan my image after coloring and then print it out on the same paper I colored on, in my case cryogen white paper, and then create my multiple cards this way.  It takes me a long time to color an image and if I colored each image then they just wouldn't look the same and I'd never be able to make enough for those on my Christmas list.  For this card set I used the Elisabeth Bell image, September Rose.

There are a few things you should take note of when creating multiple cards this way.  First, I only scan my own colored image for personal use.  I always buy my uncolored images, rubber stamps, digital stamps, from the original artist and follow their angel policies.  Second, although I originally used copic markers reprinting my original on a computer is NEVER the same as coloring with my copic markers.  The shading and depth of color is always much better when I use my copic markers.

Materials Used:
Copic Markers
Fiskars Flower Punch
Spellbinder's Grand Oval and Scalloped Oval dies

Enjoy the rest of your Tuesday!
Thank so much for stopping by,
