♥ Waiting for Spring ♥

Hello Copic-Friends!

Today it is my turn, DeeDee, to show you another inspiration with Copic Markers. For my post I have made this card using the cute Sitting Tilda with Butterfly from the Once Upon a Time Collection of Magnolia. The designpapers are from Maja Design from the Vintage Spring Collection.

For this coloring I have used the "No Lines-Technique". This means that you don't see any black lines of you image. To achieve this effect I have stamped my image with Memento London Fog. This is a light grey color. For more instructions please visit the wonderful tutorial from Kathrin HERE!

Here is my card

Copics used:
Skin: E0000, E000, E00, E01, E11
Hair: E50, E51, E53, E55, E57
Reds: R20, R22, R24, R27

a birthday card

Hello dear Copic lovers!
It's Kathrin here today sharing a new card with you.
Actually this is a special card to me - it was the birthday card I made for one of my twin girls 12th birthday which we celebrated last friday... I let her twin sister pick the stamp since still most of my supplies are packed away and so I was very limited in what to use. LOL

So she picked this one - knowing her sister and her sweet tooth very well. LOL
But Tilda is just the cutest and her 3 layer cake looks really yummy!

This is  a close up of the image:

The trousers were quite a challenge to color - I wasn't sure if I should follow the checked pattern. If you take a close look I started with filling in one square with blue and leaving the next one plain but it didn't work out from how the pattern is drawn. At the end I was really happy with how they turned out and how you can still see the few squares I colored in blue.
The hair has been colored using little dots to keep the structure of the locks.

I went with these colors:
skin: E13, E11, E51, E30, E000
cheaks: R22, R20
hat, shirt: C8, C5, C1
trousers: B93, B91, C8, C5, C1
shoes: E37, E35, E31, E30
hair, cake: E99, YR24, Y21, Y11, Y000
heart: R59, R85, R81

Have a lovely weekend everyone!

Naschkatze / Sweet Tooth

Hi Ladies,

Today I want to show you this Card Project. I've used a super cute image stamp by Whiff Of Joy. The sentiment "Naschkatze" (sweet tooth) is by WOJ as well. This time I just wanted to show, how I mix up Copics to match paper colours with a used/vintage look.

The papers I've used have this brownish aqua tones that I don't find within the copics palette.
So I coloured first the hat and skirt of the girl using BG10, BG11 and BG13.
To match with the paper tone, I've overcolored these parts (hat & skirt) with E50.

To mix up colours I just love the E50 or the soft Warm Grey tones W1 to W3... give it a chance and try it out :)

Wish you a great next tea time with your friends,

A Tale of A Rose

Morning Crafters,

The beautiful image is called A Tale of A Rose by Janna Prosvirino available at Crafts and Me.  The papers are by Maja Design Spring Basics 6x6 paper pad, gorgeous.

I have added a little shabby green frantage on the pearls that frame the image and around the image itself.

The magnolia butterfly also has some shabby green and aged wine frantage. Isn't it gorgeous. I love lilac and green together.

The sentiment is by Kaisercraft.  I stamped the word SMILE out and then cut each letter out individually and arranged in the airdry clay frame.

The green tassel on the right is a new release by Marianne Designs.

Copic Recipe:-
Skin E00, E000, E0000, E11
Hair C9, C7, C5, C3 C1
Lilac BV13, BV11, BV04, BV02, BV01, BV00, BV000, BV0000

Monochromatic and 100% Copic

Hello, dear Copic fans,
Right at the moment, I have some problems with my right hand, so colouring is not as enjoyable as usual. I take the chance to try one of the lots of different techniques Copic Markers do offer. 
This time, I created a card using nothing else than Copic Markers, Activator and paper.
Astonishing, isn't it?
 I used my airbrush to colour the background paper with B91, then I applied B93 to the stamp (Katzelkraft) and pressed it onto the paper. For the image, I applied B95 to the stamp, sprayed activator onto my paper and pressed the stamp onto it. After that I cut the image out with my Cuttlebug, kept the die in space and sprayed B91 on the rim with the airbrush. I had covered the image with a mask to keep the background white.
 The sentiment stamp (Noor! design) has been coloured with B93, too. I rinsed it with water right after that to prevent the alcohol to damage the clear stamp.
Though I am really looking forward to be able to colour images again soon, I am very happy with how this card turned out. 
Big Hugs

this must bee spring

Hello everyone!
This is Kathrin here today sharing a new card with you all.

Well, spring seems finally have found its way to us. The sun is out and is warming up the landscape, flowers start to show up everywhere. And guess who else I caught: a little bee. 

She is all excited about being able to fly out again. And since I think she is one young bee I am sure she is really having fun!

"Enjoying life makes everyday life more wonderful"
this is what I would translate the german saying with. And I thought it's just the perfect one to go with this image.
I added some daisies as decorations and also used designer's papers showing daisies on it.
I finished the card with a die cut fence and some flourish.

I went with these Copics for the coloring:

Skin: E13, E11, E51, E30, E000
Cheeks: R22, R20
Hair/Yellow part on clothes: Y19, Y17, Y15, Y13, Y11,Y0000 and E99 (only for hair)
Browns: E49, E47, E44, E43, E42, E41
Flower: C5, C1, Colorless Blender
YG67, YG17, YG13
Shadow: BG000

And now I am wishing everyone a wonderful and sunny spring day!

I also used bright colours and lots of flowers because I’d like to make a spring card, this is the right time now… J

The  Mo Manning image is called “Fairy Needle”, the sentiment is from Bildmalarna, the papers are Magnolia from the last “Love collection”, the dies are Magnolia Doohickeys  “So wrapped lovely” and a Joy! Craft wonderful  die (I don’t know the name).

Here is a close up of the colored image:
