Halloween I Want Candy Mixed Media Lantern

Hello Copic friends,

It is almost Halloween, so I thought it was nice to show a Halloween project.
I have made Halloween cards, tags ...and this mixed media lantern.

While you are reading this post I will be demonstrating Copic colouring mixed with card making and scrapbooking at the Hobbyshow in Rome. 
This is one of my projects I have created especially for the show.

For the first time the Canadian brand Kraftin Kimmie  will be shown in Italy and of course it will be possible to buy them! I have picked the super fun clearstamp set called I Want Candy
Great for Halloween projects, but with a little altering this stamp set can be suitable for birthday/toddlers cards too. 

To colour these stamps  I have chosen some nice Halloween colour combos 
that are also available in the CIAO range.

I have stamped the stamps onto Perfect Colouring Paper and have started colouring..

Here we go let's start coloring!

The little "devil" 

The green combo : G 14, G 17, YG 03, YG 23

The purple combo : V 12, V 15, V 17, BV 08

The "witch" 

The gray combo : W 3, W 5, W 7

The pumkins;

The orange combo : YR 15, YR 16, YR 07, E 18

After the colouring I have fuzzy cutted the little devil, witch , bats and pumkins.

This time I have not made a card but a lantern!

I have cut the pieces for the lantern out of some heavy Fabriano Murillo black card stock ( 260g) ,
with some wax I gave the metal look. I have added some acetate windows, but before adding them into to cardstock lantern I have used the cobweb stencil and some decoglass volume paste with a spatula to create the spiderweb pattern. It needs some drying time but once dry it looks fab. Isn't that fun? 

I have glued my Copic coloured images onto the lantern, and on top I have added some ribbons in orange, black and purple!

Boooooh! Trick or Treat??? A nice piece of home decor for Halloween is ready.

Happy Halloween and for those of you living in Italy near Rome
come  to visit me at stand B45 at the Hobbyshow ( 11-13 October 2019 ).

Inside the lantern I have added a candle with a battery. 
Of course not a real candle as it is made  out of paper cardstock.

I have used:
Black cardstock Fabriano Murillo ( 260 g )
Sissix die for the lantern
Heavy acetate 
Cobweb Stencil Kraftin Kimmie
I Want Candy clear stamp set Kraftin Kimmie
deco glass volume paste colour Moon dust Ferrario

Love at Christmas

Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share some Christmas inspiration. I picked an adorable stamp by Penny Black, called Nose to Nose and decided to have a play with my airbrush.

I masked my stamped image to protect my bears and created a hill with Post-It notes. I did not go to the trouble of cutting the mask between my bears because I had in mind to draw a background after airbrushing.

Above, you can see what it looked like, once the airbrushing was done. I used B02, BG15, BV34 and a bit of V01.

I removed the masks, and then realised that I really liked the look of the sky and should not draw a background on it... so, more masking, this time to do the space between the bears lol!

I used B02 and BG15.

I then coloured the bears. I used W0, 1, 3, 5 for their fur, C5, R35, 37, 39 for the red scarf, and RV63, 66, 69 for the pink one.

Next I added a bit of C2, BG000 and B00 for the snow (yes, white always needs to be coloured a bit!). I also added some stickles on the ground and white acrylic paint with a Molotow marker for the snowflakes.

Bears: W0, 1, 3, 5, R20
Red: C5, R35, 37, 39
Pink: RV63, 66, 69
Sky: B02, BG15, BV34, V01

Using two rectangle dies, I created a frame for my cute pair.

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

Autumn Wishes..Lady Mushroom (Glimps)

Hello Copic friends,

One thing I love about Autumn are the lovely warm colours...
So today I am showing you a card in autumn colours with a lovely digital stamp from Glimps.

I have printed the image onto Perfect Colouring paper with my printer.
Below you can find some steps of the colouring;

As you can see on the photos during my colouring I had in mind another kind of background,
but when I have started to assemble the card I thought it was too dark.

So I have chosen some other papers and background colours to give it a different look.
