Adding touches of colors with marker dots is so much easier than coloring itself! And it provides a unique look to just about any stamped image. Watching my video for tips and tricks!

  1. What a beautiful technique! I can’t wait to try it. I’m working on some fall cards and might try this with my pumpkin and sunflower stamps. Thank you Jennifer!

  2. Simply stunning results! I will have to give this technique a try…looks like fun and achievable. I’m coloring challenged so this might be perfect for me!

    1. Oops! Don’t know what happened there! LOL

      Such treasured time with your family! Welcome back, Jennifer! YOU are BLESSING!

  3. Simply stunning results! I will have to give this technique a try…looks like fun and achievable. I’m coloring challenged so this might be perfect for me!

  4. Just lovely and great for those of us who aren’t that great at coloring. Thank you for all you do!

  5. Beautiful cards. Thanks for sharing this technique. Can’t wait to try it. So glad you’re back!

  6. I did a craft years ago with my girls using oil based sharpies, stickers, and a mug. They did dots around the stickers and lifted so the images was outlined by dots. How did I not think to use that in card making. Great inspiration thank you!

  7. I love this technique! Have used fir years with wood burning but never thought to apply to my paper crafts.

    Your cards are really beautiful. Adore those butterflies. TFS

  8. I get impatient with coloring, so this technique may be perfect for me. Hopefully I’ll find time to give it a try this weekend.

  9. Love the look of the dot coloring. I don’t have Copics, but I’m definitely going to try this with my Spectrum Noir markers.

  10. Your sense of design is so far removed from what I could ever come up with! So blessed that you share your talents with the likes of me! Thank you!

  11. I haven’t done pointillism since college! Wow, forgotten all about it, and NEVER thought about it in cardmaking. Your cards are gorgeous, Jennifer. Welcome home, and definitely welcome back to making cards! <3

  12. One of the best things I find about watching your videos, besides the great techniques, are the helpful tips you give along the way. It’s hard to believe after years of card making that I still struggle with adding the designed panel to a card front and keeping it aligned. (before the liquid glue dries). Your tip using the corner of the Misti may have saved me!
    I wanted to add how much I love this technique. Many companies today are releasing images that need some type of coloring. I’m a stamper at heart besides the fact that coloring is a big challenge for me. This is the main reason I’m also leaning towards stand alone dies. Thank you Jennifer, for all your help and I hope you had a wonderful time with your family. 😊💖

  13. I have never seen this before so thank you much! I could literally watch your videos for hours on end. Amazed by your creative talent(s). Thanks for sharing!

  14. I loved this technique, Jennifer! I used to oil paint with the similar impressionist technique but never thought to use it with my stamps. Thank you, Sarah
