Cicci Colouring a background in circles with some bubbles

Hi Friends,
Cicci here posting for Copic Europa.
I was thinking that I'm going to show you how I make a background in lots of circles with some bubbles.

I have used these Copic Markers:
Hair: RV99 69  95 R14 39 56 E04 02 
Clothes: RV52 55 Y02 E02 Y26 28 02 21 YR02 RV69
Skin: E50 51 53 04 15 11 RV52 R14
Eyes: Y21 26 28 E47 49 E23 Y02
White Posca Pen for Dots and White Details
 For the bubbles I have used Various Ink and Copic Cleaner

Step 1
Start with RV95 and colour in half circles. When you make these circles it's important that you make them fast, it looks much better.
It's not so much about blending at this stage, just add colours that you like 
In the middle I add V93
Continue with RV95 
Add RV34 over the darker colours  
Now I blend a little all over the dark colours with R14
Not in the area RV95 V93
I want that part light
 Add YR27  
 The darkest colour I use here is RV99
I want the same colour in the background as I used for her Hair
 Add more light colours in the area near the girl
 On the other side of the girl I have added Y21
 Making some bubbles
 Take some Various ink on your cotton buds and push them to the paper so you get little circles.
Don't take too much Various ink because if you do you'll end up with a very big circle. It's better to repeat many times instead so you have control over how big you want the bubble
You can see here how I have added the Various Ink 
Next step is to fill the bubbles with colours 
Here I added some RV52 in the bubble
then RV55 and blend with RV52 
I also added some Yellow and E02
 Here are the Markers I have used inside the bubbles
You can use other yellows, pinks and orange if you dont have this

 At the end I add some white dots with a Posca pen

Have a wonderful day from the Copic Europa Girls!!
Welcome again and feel free to visit anytime :)

Sepia Bookmark

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a simple bookmark, with a vintage feel to it. To create my bookmark, I used the cute Mayleedee stamp by Paperbabe Stamps. I stamped her in Memento Tuxedo Black and then die cut my image with an MFT die.

To colour Mayleedee, I used only W Copic Markers. I started by colouring the skin, using W00, 0, 1, 3 and coloured her clothes and hair using W5, 7, 9 to create some contrast. For a more vintage look, I then used Distress Inks (Antique Linen and Vintage Photo), putting the image back in my die, as you can see below. 

As a final touch, I added 2 little butterflies in Sepia Archival Ink and a Prima sentiment that seemed perfect with the look in Mayleedee's eyes. And to me, reading is about dreaming and escaping - a perfect little bookmark for myself!

Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
Delphine xx

Hello : a geometric patchwork card

Hello Copic fans,

Today I will show you the making of my geometric patchwork card.
I have chosen some bright colours as it is Summer!

I have cut a sheet of Perfect Coloring paper in half.
I have just used my "special ruler" you can choose the angle you wish,
and I have started to draw lines with my cool grey SP Multiliner.

After having drawn different triangles I have started colouring with my Copic Markers,
first colour : Yellow (as the sun) 

Second colour chosen : green (as the green grass in the mountains)

A close up :

Third colour chosen: Blue green (as a fresh sea!)

After having coloured these three groups of triangles,
 I have used some SP Mmultiliners. 
I have drawn coloured lines on top of the original grey lines. 

Now I had to choose what to do with the design,
I thought it might be nice to make a card.

So I cut up the coloured block of triangles,
added some black lines on the edges with the chisel side of a 110 (black) Copic Marker.

Now I have played around with the different pieces.
I have added some doodles too with the same coloured SP Multiliners.
Some dots, some checks, some hearts and crosses.

Also a little lettering , I have cut a piece of PCP which I have coloured Yellow,
and with a black SP Multiliner I have added a simple "hello" text.

I was missing something on this card
 so I have decided to add two pieces of pierced paper too,
in some shocking pink! (RV25).

If you wonder why I have chosen pink? 
Perhaps I was inspired by some pink flamingos!

Hello Summer ! 

This is the final result, I hope this geometric patchwork card 
might inspire you to do something like this too.
It is again a little piece of anti-stress Copic colouring :) .

Less Monday, More Summer!

Hi everyone! It's Sandie here and today I am sharing my colouring on a card I made which features Rosie and Bernie stamps from Stamping Bella. I masked two stamps to create a little scene. This was such a fun card to make and I used lots of colours. 

I started by colouring in the tree. On the leaves I used some greens I don't normally use, but they turned out really well so I will be keeping this combo to mind for future use. 
G03, G07 and YG05

For the trunk of the tree I chose E21, E23 and E25 

On Bernie's mane, I used B00, B02, and B05

On the flowers and lei I used the following colours. I also used these for Rosie's lei. 
- Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17

V000, V12 and V17

BG11, BG13, BG15

R81, R83 and R85. 

To finish colouring Bernie I used :
R20, R01, V000, V12 and V17
N1, N3 and 0 for shading and blending. 

To colour Rosie I used : 
Skin - E00, E11, E04
Dress - BG13, BG15, BG18, R81, R83, R85
Glasses frames - R81, R83, R85

For the glasses I used C5, C7 and C9 and then some white gel pen for highlight. 

On the coconut I coloured with 
E42, E43, E44, YR30, YR31
YR12, YR16, R35 (umbrella and straw)

I completed Bernie by colouring the drink, umbrella and straw with 
YR30, YR31, Y13, Y17, R32 and R35

Finally, I added some "sand" underneath the characters with YR30, YR31, E42 and E43. 
I smoothed the edges with colourless blender. 

Thank you so much for dropping by, and I hope you're inspired to do a little colouring today.

Tulip with Copic's on stonepaper by guestdesigner Juanita Tschumi

Hello everybody

Today I will show you how I made this tulip
with Copic's on stonepaper.
 This paper is absolutly great to work with!

It's a thin paper and usable on both sides.
The paper weight is 144 GSM 
and it has micro-perforated pages so that you can tear it out of the book.
The Copic stay's longer wet on the paper, so you can do more things with it.

This is the stonepaper I have used, 
it's from Transotype,
a brand of Holtz Office Support GmbH in Germany.

I have made a film for you, spoken in englisch and with some music.
Sorry for my englisch, it isn't very good.

I have used Copic's, alcohol and a drinking straw.

I hope you liked my film and see you next time.

Hugs Juanita
