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;

 Mushroom :
E 40, E 43, E 44, E 47, E 79

Skirt :
RV 93, RV 95, RV 99

Shirt/ Boots :
E 93, E 95, E 97, E 99

YR 20, YR 23, R 27, E 44

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.

Here you can see the final result.

Hi everyone. It's Sandie here and today I am sharing my Copic colouring of these gorgeous Danielle Donaldson Blossoms from Stamping Bella.

I decided not to use the full length of the stems, so before I stamped the image I placed a strip of washi tape across the bottom of my Copic paper

This is how I choose my colours. I take a strip of copic paper and test how different colours blend together 

For the blue flowers I started with the darkest colour, B14. Then I brought in the medium and light colours, B01 and B000

When I had the blue flowers coloured, I took the B14 again and added depth around the stamens. 

For the pink flowers I used RV23, RV21 and RV10. Again I added depth around the stamens, this time using RV25

Once  had the flowers coloured, I removed any blue and pink, that spilled over onto the stamens and leaves, using the colourless blender, 0. 

For the stamens I started with YR24, then applied some Y15, and finally Y13. 

I applied YR27 to the stamens, again to give it depth. 

On the leaves I used G24, G20 and YG00

I then brought in G28 and reapplied the previous colours.

To finish the blossoms I applied some white gel pen. 

I peeled back the washi tape, added some black and white bakers twine under the Blossoms, and created a frame around the blossoms using a scoring board and embossing tool. The black panel behind the image makes the blossoms pop out from the card base. 

Thanks so much for dropping by today. I hope you're inspired to take out your markers and colour something up.
