Blowing bubbles...

Hello everyone!

It's Sue here today with a technique that uses Copic refills and washing up liquid to create a really fun bubbly background!

The items I have used for this background technique are - 
A piece of Glossy Photo Paper, Copic refills BG15, BG13, FBG2, plastic disposable cups, plastic straws and household washing up liquid.
I put a little bit of Copic refill BG13, a little Copic Colourless Blender and some washing up liquid in a plastic cup.  You need enough washing up liquid to make the refills quite thick and sticky.
Then, I put the straw in the liquid and blew through it to create bubbles!
There are a few things to be careful of at this stage!  Firstly, do not blow too hard or all the liquid will fly up and out of the cup and splash your face - I know this to be true!!! Secondly, please remember to blow through the straw - do not forget and suck the liquid up!
So - blow quite gently and slowly and steadily until you have a cup full of bubbles!
Then I placed a piece of glossy photo paper glossy side down onto the bubbles and pressed down so the bubbles burst on the paper.
Repeat this several times until you are happy with how it looks!
Next is the exciting part when you see the pattern the bubbles have made on the card!
Then I changed colour, and repeated the technique with FBG2
I had far too much fun playing with these bubbles - I think this has become one of my favourite techniques!
I made quite few bubbly backgrounds - I did n't want to waste the Copic Ink so I made some for another time!
The background will dry after a few hours and all the bubbles left on the card will disappear!
There was really only one image I could put with such a fabulous bubbly background - hands up if you are also thinking of mermaids!!!
I had such fun doing this!  It would be great if you could try this too and show us your cards at
Copic Marker Europe on Facebook.

Happy Copic colouring

Cicci colouring a fruit

Hi there Copic Lovers!
Cicci here today posting!! I was thinking to show you how I made this fruit.
I hope you like it and colour and eat one today.
It's very Healthy ;0)

Step 1
First I draw the fruits and some leaves
 Then add Y13 on the top. I used a Copic Mulltiliner  0.1 for the brown details

Step 2 
 Below the Y13, add Y15

Step 3
 Add YR15 over the Y15

Step 4
Add YR12 over the two other markers and add
 little lines on top of the fruit

Step 5
Add a little darker marker, I have used YR24

Step 6
Now its time for the fun!!
Use Y15 and go over the whole fruit

Step 7
 Add some dots with YR07

Step 8 
More blending and more dots with YR04

Step  9
Blending again with Y08

Step 10
 Add some YR02 on the top on the fruit 

 Step 11
I like to use strong yellow so I added Y04 
for more light in the fruit

Step 12
Time for the babies!
Add in strokes with Y04

Step 13
Fill with Y17

Step 14
Add some YR04

 Step 15
 Add and Blend with Y15

 Step 16
Blend more with Y08
on the both the babies and the fruit

Step 17
Now I'm going to do the trick for this colouring...
Just add little white strokes on the babies and now its little like I think :0))
I have used a Posca Pen:

For the leaves, use YG23 03 13 G28 29

Have a wonderful day everyone and please feel free to visit anytime!!

Hello Butterfly

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a Copic scene featuring a Gorjuss Girl and a little butterfly :) I chose to stamp my image using Memento Toffee Crunch Ink for a change from black lines.

I started by colouring the background: first the sky, using B00 and BG000, then the tree in E31, 35, 39, G21,24, 28, YG01 and the bushes using G28, YG01, 03, 17, 67. For the grass, I picked more YGs, using YG01, 03, 05, 06, 09, 17, 67. I then added shapes in the distance in BV000 and G20, and blades of grass in T7, B66 and YG67. The path was created with E40, 41, 42, 43.

I then coloured my Gorjuss Girl, choosing to cover the details of her dress (easier ;)!!). The reds are R22, 24, 27, 29, the light brown colour is E50, 51, 53. For the hair, I used T5, 7, 9 and BV04.
My image looked okay, but to make it look better I had to add a few details and pencil touches here and there...

I added shading to her skin and dress in Polychromos, coloured her eyes too and added some black to her hair. I added little dots and blades in the grass and bushes. Oh and a few gold dots to my girl's collar in gel pen too. And that was it :) I then die cut my image with an MFT die and wrote hello in white gel pen, as you can see below.

Sky: B00 and BG000
Tree: E31, 35, 39, G21,24, 28, YG01 
Bushes: G28, YG01, 03, 17, 67 + BV000, G20 in teh distance
Grass: YG01, 03, 05, 06, 09, 17, 67.
Blades of grass: B66, T7,YG67
Path: E40, 41, 42, 43

Skin: E000, 00, 11, 13, RV02
Hair: BV04, T5, 7, 9
Dress: E50, 51, 53, R22, 24, 27, 29
Butterfly: B66, 69, V06, 09

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

Hi everyone. It's Sandie here and today I am sharing how I coloured on a card I made featuring one of Stamping Bella's Uptown Zodiac girls, Taurus

I always start colouring my images by doing the skin first. 
My favourite combination for skin is E00, E11, E04 and R20 for the cheeks. 

I usually start by adding E11 where I know I want it to be darker. 

Then I apply the E04, just a very thin line, and pull it out gently with the E11. 

I blend it all out with the E00 and go back over any darker areas with E11 if I need to. 

I apply the cheek colour last, blending the edges with E00. 

For the hair I used E21, E23, E25, E27 and a little bit of E29

On her shirt I used V000, V12 and V15

For her jeans I used my favourite demin combination - B93, B95, B97 and B41. 

On the belt and shoes I used neutral blacks - N5, N7 and N9

For the buckle - Y13 and Y17

And finally, for the horns I used E42 and E43

Thanks for dropping by today

A little piece of Copic "doodle art"

Hello all Copic fans.

Today I am sharing with you a little piece of my Copic "doodle art".

To start off, this time I have used a stencil to create a design to begin with.

I have fixed the stencil onto perfect colouring paper using my magnets and stamp tool.

I have started to draw the rectangle shapes onto the perfect colouring paper 
using my black Copic multiliners. With the tips 0.1 and 0.3.

Later I have put the stencil away and I have started to create myself.

Time for some colour.

I have used the following Copic markers:

YR82, E97, YR18, E07, R39, R46

It is nice to carry on doodling…I have connected all the little rectangles.
Some spaces were not coloured but just doodled in black and white.

This is the result, I have also stamped the text stamp 
and have cut the words separately.

Now I thought it was a pity to use it as a background, 
so I have dedided to "frame" my little piece of doodle art.

The frame was cut with my frame die in two different colours of cardstock.

The words were added to the frame, 
the edges of the paper were coloured with the same coloured markers.
I have added some small doodles on the frame too.

sometimes on the way to our dreams

we get lost and find a better one!

Fun to do, hope you will try it too and thanks for visiting our Copic blog today!
