A card for a boy

Today is my first blogpost here at CME, Rozzan from Sweden.
It's a honor for me to be here and I hope I can inspire you.
The cards I do is often sweet and cute,
so today I have done a card that is a little bit tougher, since it is for a boy. 
The stamp is from webb and the paper is from K-Designs.

 I have used the following Copic Markers:
Grå: C 9,5,3,1
Guld: YR 27,24,21,20

I wish you a good day.

Gorjuss Happy Day!

Hello Copic lovers! It's Delphine here today to share a 100% Copic scene about Spring. I am in spring mode and need some sunshine! Here is what I've done...

I love this adorable Gorjuss Girl, it's an "old" Personal Impressions stamp called Bluebird's Proposal. I stamped it and coloured the whole background adding some bushes in the distance using my Copics. The sentiment is from a Tiddly Inks set called Ellie Says Be Happy. As a finishing touch, I punched a little flower and added a Doodlebug pearl. Here is a close up on my scene and the list of all the Copics I have used...

Skin: E0000, 000, 00, 02, 11, 23
Hair: W5, 7, 9
Outfit: RV52, 55, V09, 15, 17
Log: E31, 35, 39, 59
Bird: B95, 97, 99
Grass: G28, YG03, 17, 67
Bushes: G24, 43, 46
Sky and Clouds: BG000, BV20, C00, 0

That's all from me today! Thank you very much for your visit, have a lovely sunny day! Hugs,
Delphine xx

Steammachine and Gears

Hello dear Copic Fans,
This is Barbara/Kreativmonster for you with one more card made with the Copic Airbrush-system.
I am quite hooked on the Airbrush lately, it is so versatile! Here I used different techniques to create the background.
I sprayed a layer of BG72 and W4 first, than added some BG75 and W6. In the end I added some sprays of BG78 and W8 using the marker  brush-nip first in the airgrip.
Then I sprayed some activator onto my gear-stamps and pressed them onto the surface. That is how the white light coloured gear are created.

 Then I applied some colour directly onto the stamp, sprayed some activator onto the paper and pressed the stamp there. All these techniques are subject of our "Special Techniques 3"-class of the ECCP.
This way, you can create a unique background with exactly the colours you want use  -
 fantastic, isn't it?

 I used 
BG72, BG75, BG78, W4, W6 and W8

My card is perfect for most of my male family members or friends!
Big Hugs

From your little monster...

My card today for the Copic Europe blog is a little different.
Sometimes I need to paint something different, unusual, not another card with pretty girl stamp.
I miss Halloween, witches and monsters (all have a bit of this in us) ... Ok, some people a little more ...

The beauty is found in the heart of who looks.
This stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil is not one of her sweet images, but it is still nice, if we look good.

My Copic colors: 
Hair: BG49, B00, B01, BG04.
Skin: V000, V01, V13, V91.
Tail: BV00, BV01, BV02.
Dress: BG49, BG02, B02, B00, B000.
Bones: W1, E40.
Dandelion: E50, Y21, YR21.
Blackground: BG0000, BG000.

See you soon, kisses!

Video Tutorial on Colouring a Vase of Flowers

Hi Everyone,

I have a new camcorder and this was my video using it.  The video shows how I colour the glass vase to look like it has water in and give it some dimension.  I hope you enjoy it. I apologise or any shadowing when I'm colouring but I forgot to turn the light to my left on :(

Here's the finished card.

Police Alert

Hello dear Copic friends!
This is Kathrin here today with a new creation using the fabulous Copic Markers.

For this post I made a man project. We all love cute cards with lots of embellishments but well, these are usually not what the men in our lives love to get. So when one of my co-workers had to leave for a class of 2 years we gave him this as his farewell gift. 

It's called a school cone and usually german kids get one of these - just quite bigger - for their very first day of school, filled with candies and little gifts.

I used a Kenny K Digi-Image on this one and used the real colors the dresses of the bavarian policemen are wearing.

I love the cool and strong look this digi has. 
It took me quite a while and some mixing of different colors to get them look real. But that's the great thing about Copics - mixing and layering makes everything possible.
Behind the image I put a patch shaped label that was only glued down at the middle, so the image gets a darker background to pop out more and also is able to get attached flat. I wouldn't have loved to have to wrap around him around the cone...

The rest of the cone has been decorated with little cut out guns and hand cuffs.

These are the Copics that I used to color this digi in:

Skin: E13, E11, E51, E30, E000
Trousers: E87, E81, YG91
Shirt: Y28, E31, Y21
Shoes, Belt etc: 100, T7, T5, T3, T1
Hat: C4, C1, C00
Green Patch: YG97, YG95, YG91
Golden accessoires on the hat: YR24, Y17, Y13, Y00
Hair: YR23, Y21, Y00

Have a great and sunny spring day everyone!

Narwhal Love ♥

Hello Hello, me again Copic lovers!
Franz from Italy with a new image totally coloured with my copics.
I've a lovely Saturated Canary image called "Narwhal Love", I swear (poor me!), I've never seen this lovely animal before! So I googled it and I found lots of images and I found him too cute!
I used the no lines technique, I've lot of fun with it and I think it fits very well to Krista's images.

The tip I can tell you about no lines colouring is always starting with the face and draw the eyes of the character with a copic multiliner (I use a 0,05) and having the same character normally printed out or on your pc video to see the lines and follow them better :)
The papers I used for my card are from Maja Design and My Mind's Eye, all the embellishments are from The Ribbon Girl.

Here is the complete list of Copics markers I've used:

+R20 and prismacolor pencil for cheecks;
Multiliner Black 0,05;


White: W1-W3
Pink: RV000-RV10-RV000-R81-R83-R85-R89
Green: G12-G24-G67
Blue-Violet: BV000-BV00-BV01-BV02-BV04;


Let's try the no lines colouring technique!
thanks for stopping by, speak soon :)

In this coloration I have made a small change to the color of the skin. Instead of E13 as the darkest shade I have taken this time E4. I think this is also very nice. What do you think? Scroll down for all colors
