Thanks for the tutorial. i'm fascinated with the process and i want to learn to create cards myself.

Janice Waymire

Thanks so much for the tutorial. I sure want to get the copic markers. I'm saving for them.

Leah T.

I am so saving to get the copics. I would like the whole set. So I am socking away all my change and maybe it won't be too long. Your site is wonderfull. Thank you for all that you do for all of us.


This is so copics here, so I need to check out your video.....did you already do this video? If you did I can't find it. Hellllllllllllllllllp LOL


I, too, am fighting the trend towards Copics - price doesn't justify purchasing them when I have 50+ ZIG markers - which, incidentally, I tried your tutorial, and ZIG's apparently do the same thing as SU markers. MARVELOUS!! So glad you put this out. I'm a HUGE watercolorer and this makes it a little easier on the tighter squeezes than the traditional method.
THANKS a heap!

Hi Julie,
You are so right on the paper weight! I have been trying to perfect your "NCNP" technique for a while, but using the cheaper thinner watercolour paper. No dice! I then bought a whole pad of 140 lb weight WC paper and that made all the difference in the world! SU wc paper is ridiculously expensive given its size, even as a demo, so i use this pad instead and cut down the papers to work with it...I will just save my SU stuff for workshops...


WOW What a great tutorial. Thank you very much for sharing. I usually colour my stamps with watercolour pencils, but I have to give my markers a go to try this technique. Love what you do. M. Carmen


Wow- this is really awesome. I tried it today on plain white cardstock and it was beautiful. I am going to try on watercolor paper tomorrow and make a project and then I'll send you a link. I have always loved coloring and shading and have been wanting to buy copic markers but haven't had the time to decide which ones that I wanted. Now I can buy new stamps instead. This technique is really awesome!!


GREAT tutorial thanks so much...the markers do GREAT at blending. Gonna have to order me some of that paper now.

Joan Jeffery

I think you are a Magical Marker Magician!!!! I love all the tips you give for shading. You Rock!!!

Desirée Spenst

Thanks for taking the risks for us Julie - I'm definitely going to try to find some time in the next few days to try out this technique!


Thanks for this tutorial! I just purchased a bunch of SU markers, and was hoping I'd be able to do some shading/blending with them. Now I just have to get some watercolour paper!

Cindy Lawrence

You are a genius, Julie! That looks absolutely fantastic!!! Thanks so much for experimenting for us! You ROCK! :)


Julie- I always love these tutorials. Although I broke down and bought some copics I still have more SU markers to use like this- thanks@ Heidi

Jennifer Love

Great coloring! I skipped the SU! markers and went straight for the Copics. hehe.... Am thinking of getting the markers to ink up stamps but not sure I would use them that much. :D
