Video + Guest Artist Dawn Woleslagle: Copic Markers + Stamping

Hello! Today I have a very special guest – Dawn Woleslagle. Dawn actually created this video for me back in the summer but I am just now getting my act together to post it! I think you will agree it was worth the wait. Dawn shows an amazing way to use Copics together with stamping. And I will be back in a few days with my spin on this technique!

Dawn is a true artist in every sense of the word and she also owns one of my favorite stamp companies – WPlus9. Because she is also a fab card maker, her stamps are perfectly designed for stampers. In this video she uses her Coming Up Rose stamp set to create three masterpieces.

After stamping her flowers with WPlus9 ink, she added highlighting with a Copic Colorless Blender pen. The blender reacts with the ink and gives a soft “bleaching effect” that is awesome. (This works with WPlus9, Hero Arts Shadow and Simon Says Stamp inks. Be sure to check out WPlus9’s colors. They are delicious. If you have Distress Inks, you can get a similiar reaction with water, but this is more controlled.) So incredible!

In the video, Dawn also shows how to additional shading with colored Copic Markers. The results are so realistic.

Aren’t those sentiments great? That is the WPlus9 Hand Lettered Hello stamp set.

If you don’t feel you can tackle the technique Dawn did today, no worries! You can just stamp the layered roses and leave it at that. The results are gorgeous. Or, just add a touch of colorless blender for a bit of highlighting. It really is easy to do. Oh – and I keep a colorless blender pen just for this technique. (I haven’t found that it damages my marker, but just in case I have a separate one.)

I hope you found Dawn’s technique as amazing as I did. I will be back in a few days with a video I created using a similar technique. I encourage you to check out Dawn’s blog, WPlus9 products and YouTube channel and give her a little love.

And a big thank you to Dawn. I am your biggest fan and honored to call you a friend. I look forward to some fun shenanigans in March. You are stuck sitting next to me again. ๐Ÿ˜‰ xo

See you soon!

  1. Love to watch Dawn at work. The cards were gorgeous and her art is amazing! Can’t wait to see what you create!

  2. Hi Jennifer, I just discovered your blog a few weeks ago and love all the video tutorials you do. Really inspiring me to try new ideas for my cards. I noticed you live in California. I am heading to Anaheim on a vacation (from Canada) and would love to pop into a couple of scrapbook stores. Any recommendations?? Thanks!!!

  3. Gorgeous, and I just happen to have this stamp set (unused as yet). So I have no excuse to try this, even if it is with different inks and Promarkers instead of Copics.

  4. Wow!! This just blows my mind!! Love your work Dawn. You make me want to try it, but I know that I’m not patient enough. Thank you for sharing. It’s always a joy to see an artist at work.

  5. wow, these are absolutely gorgeous, I love the different ways to use the stamps made by you guys….so many ways to get a real effect. Thank you so so very much. This is such an awesome technique.

  6. I love this tutorial, the flowers look so beautiful and I knew I had to try it right away. sadly, Dawn makes it look so effortless and mine look like kindergarten flowers!! ๐Ÿ™ more practise clearly needed…

  7. Thankyou jen for your awesome choice of a guest artist…. i love love that rose coloring with stamps n highlighting with copics. i actually prefer the first rose because obviously its the longer way around:) i love the look of a tight rose..at least in the middle:) thanks dawn for sharing you tech with us and being so thotful… all the best to u…. and i hope i can learn from you… what would i use without having a copic blender? i am really stuck when it comes to understanding the ink and property techniques… and a natural budget is a hard one to leap over….does a colorless blender copic pen work with a spectrum noir blender? help! i dont have copic markers…so can i use a copic blender with any other markers? thanks….

  8. Dawn you have such amazing talent! These look so realistic! I will give them a try one day when I finally get the knack of “flicking” my Copics. I’m very new to the ins & outs of Copics! These techniques give me something to try for, however. The roses were stunning. The life and depth you brought into the leaves with teeny-tiny “flicks” really impressed me a lot and inspired me! Thank you. Jennifer did the right thing asking you to be her guest!
