Ice Christmas Penguin Scene Card & Video

Hello all,

Today I have a Christmas card for you..with lot of ice.
I hope it might be useful for all Copic card makers among us. 

First of all I have printed the sweet and oh so cute digital stamp
called  "Ice Christmas" from LOTV  onto transotype Perfect Colouring Paper .

Here it is ,
now let's start to colour...
I have started with the lightest colour B0000.

After having coloured the ice blocks I thought it was fun to draw an icy background too.

I am not an expert but it is great to try new techniques right? 
And practice is always the key.. It was such fun to do too ! 

Of course the cute penguin needed some colour too.

Below you can find the colouring video,
step by step to give an idea how I have created this card.

Was it clear?
It takes quite a lot of time to create videos but if they are helpful for you it is all worth it.
 It would be nice to receive some feedback in the comments .

Merry Christmas

Hello Everyone,

A new post from me, Cordine, this time a Christmas card in monochrome with a touch of color.
I used a digi stamp from Powerpoppy, Ultimate Poinsettia. I have printed it in light grey for a no-line effect.

I only use the following colors :
C7 - C5 - C3 - C1 - C0

First I take a Multiliner 0,3 Cool Grey for the inside of the flower.

Then I begin the color the stamp.

After almost everything of the stamp is colored, I color 1 of the berry branches red for a splash of color. The colors I used is R59 - R46 - R14.

I glued the colored stamp on black-red- white cardstock, stamped a text and it's a Christmas card - my first for this year!

I hope that I inspired you to try this sometime!
Have a great week!

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here :)

I thought I'd drop by and show a card I made using some rather mischievous toads from Whimsy Stamps. The set is called Mistletoads and each toad is getting up to something fun. Anyway. I thought you might like to see my colouring process for this image. So here goes. My light source is coming from the top left and I am mostly colouring from dark to light...

I like to lay down some of my medium colour first. I do this for a couple of reasons. First, if I change my mind about where I am going to lay the shading, I can disguise this by going over the top with a darker colour. I also find some of my darker colours can be a little tricky. They play a lot better if they have a bit of ink to sit on.




Fill the remaining white spaces with YG01 once the ink is dry. You don't want these colours to blend.

W3 and W5 for cast shadows (under his chin, for example).

Add E84 and E87 to the spots on the toad, this makes him look a bit more dirty ;)

Also use E84 and E87 for the rope.





B60 and blend out with 0
















And that's the toad done!

Here's the complete list of Copics...
Green; YG01, YG03, YG63, W3, W5
Brown; E84, E87
White; B60, C1
Pink; R30, E04
Gold; YR31, Y26, YR27
Blue; B21, B34, B37
Red; R22, R14, R27

And this is the card I made for him...

That's all from me today, thanks so much for stopping by.

Have a great day...

Colouring a Copper Robot

Hi all. Today I am sharing how I coloured a copper robot. The little robot I used is from Create a Smile Stamps set called Same Frequency. 

I stamped it onto my favourite paper for colouring,which is Perfect Colouring Paper by Holtz using Memento Tuxedo Black ink. 

The colours I'm using for the robot are E08, E37, E95, E97, E99. 
I start with E37 which is the darkest colour and just apply a little where I am going to have my darkest areas. 

Next I add some E99, dragging out the E37 

Again, I drag the colour towards the centre using E08, which adds a red undertone. 

Apply some E97 until you almost have all the image coloured. 

Finally, apply E95 to the remaining white space. 

You can keep going over the image using your colours until you are happy with the shading. To add more definition, go back with the E37 at the end. 

I used R14, R17 and R37 for the heart and buttons.  

On the flower pot - BG01, BG53, BG57 and BG07 
and the flowers/leaves I used the rest of the colours you see below. I also used BV000 to add a little shading to the eyes. 

And now he's ready to cut out and use on your card. 
I hope you like him, and you are inspired to take out your markers today.
