Jill Foster has done it again! She has posted a beautiful card with a lot of "wow" factor using the Radiant Neon inks from IMAGINE Crafts/Tsukineko on her blog, Studio Sessions.

Speaking of IMAGINE Crafts, here's the link to their blog showcasing another Mixed Media Blog Hop Day with Viva Las VegaStamps! and their quirky stamp designs.

Here's the link to the IMAGINE Crafts' blog; click on Darsie's name to see how she made this card and then click on the other two names to see what they've created:

Over at the Impression Obsession blog, Jenny Gropp has made a beautiful card colored with Copic markers. Take a look . . .

From the Magenta blog, more beautiful samples are shown using some of the stamps from their last release. I've copied the post here so you wouldn't have to wade through the French wording; if you want to see that, the link to the Magenta blog posting is below.

"Give wings to your passion

Good morning,
It's almost summer, 
so I thought of playing with some sunny colors
 and a brand new stamp!

by Jolande van Oosterhout, DT Magenta

The background is made with two colors of Golden's high flow paint.
Wet some paper by misting it with water (use non-gloss and steady paper, the paper shouldn't soak up all the water either).
Put some paint on your craftsheet and mist it with a little bit of water.
 Swipe the cardstock through the paints to pick up some of the paint. Mist the painted tag with water to marbleize the colors, keep misting until you like the color. Turn the card a few times to make the colors run.  Just try this and discover all the possibilities.
After it has dried, stamp your image with a Catseye black and heat emboss with clear embossing powder.

Another sample to give you an idea how to work with the paint,
This is with one of the new masks!

Have a great day Jolande!

OMG! Here is a posting from the Copic Marker blog that will blow you away. For the folks we call "real artists", aka artists who know how to draw their image(s), here is a watercolor technique applied to Copic Markers and isopropyl alcohol.

I love the masking technique that Sherry Cheever has used on this blog post for The Artistic Stamper.

That's all for tonight. It's been a great day!
