Studio Monday with Nina-Marie: Working with Multiple Mediums

Using Multiple Mediums

Hello crafty friends, and happy Monday; its Nina-Marie here with you today! This week I wanted to share how I love to combine multiple mediums together, as well as feature one of Simon’s newest stamp sets!

Studio Monday with Nina-Marie

I was really excited to have designed the Some Bunny Special stamp set and couldn’t wait to ink it up! I used many of the images in the set to make a custom scene with the help of some masking. Making scenes are a lot of fun because you can build them however you like and create unique layouts.

Using Multiple Mediums

Do you have multiple coloring mediums in your stash? I admit, I do! Being able to change things up and use different mediums is a great way to add a fresh feel to your cards. My next question for you is: have you ever used them together? I LOVE doing this! In this card, I used my Copic markers, Prismacolor colored pencils and a Zig Clean Color watercolor marker to color in the scene. Because all of these mediums creates their own unique effect, this allows me to showcase all of them all at once! I’ll be showing the coloring process in the video below. I also have the colors used listed below.

The card base of this card was made with Desert Storm cardstock and stamped with a My Favorite Things background stamp. I also added a red matte behind my scene using Lipstick Red cardstock, which was die cut with the Eyelet Stitches die from Memory Box. To embellish the card, I used Spectrum Noir glitter pen and tied some bakers twine around the top.

This card was a lot of fun to put together and I hope it has inspired you to try combining your coloring mediums together to create unique scenes. Be sure to check out the video to see how the card came together! Thanks for visiting me and I will see you again next week with a new Studio Monday video!

  1. I usually use only one type of coloring medium on my cards but now I will have to try to combine them.Cute bunny card!

  2. Such a sweet design, I recently started mixing markers and pencils and it really is a fun technique to use, as always, great inspiration, TFS and have a wondeful day!

  3. What a darling card by Nina today! I think I could watch her color all day long. What a great way to use differnt coloring mediums together.

  4. Very cute card! I often use more than one medium because one won’t have the right colour while the other does.

  5. Sometimes I feel like such a ‘duh’ person when I see things like this. I have Crayola crayons, lots of markers, glitter pens, Twinkling H2O’s, & colored pencils and I have never used them all together. If I do markers, I usually do all markers. I’ll have to try mixing things and see how it looks. I see how your looks and it looks great! That bunny is so cute! Thanks for the great idea, now I just have to use it.
