Double slider card for a shopoholic :)

Hello Copic friends! 
This month I made a card for a lovely lady who loves to shop! 
I tried out a fun card fold and used lots of happy colours to fit the birthday girls personality.

The papers are Maja Design Summer Crush, I used lots of WOC flowers and Martha Stewart Butterflies.

The image is Penny Shopping by Make it Crafty. I masked it with a couple of "Shopping bags" images- also by Make it Crafty.  
Copic Colours used: 
Skin: E13-11-21-00, R20
Hair: E29-25-21-49
Reds: R59-24-22-02, RV11-42

Blue bags and details: BV25-23-20, W7
Floor: W5-3-1-00

Here's a look at the card unfolded. The inside slides out and displays room for a personal message and a sentiment.

Hope you like it! 

Wishing you a creative day!

Hi Everyone, it's Faye here :)

Today, I thought I would share a card using this beautiful image from Polkadoodles. I love her big watch. I thought she would look great with an Airbrushed background... you don't have to ask me twice to start squirting ink everywhere!!

I built up quite a lot of layers of ink on the background for a lovely smooth coverage. I didn't catch a good photo of that. By the time I finished, the ink was quite tacky, so I grounded her with a black pencil, as I did not want to over saturate the ink and make a sticky mess.

Then to finish the card, I just doodled a border, which as you will probably know, is my usual style.

Copics Used...
Skin; E50, E00, E11, E71
Hair; E31, E34, E55, W3, W5
Ground; 100
Background; T2, T3, T5
White; T0, T1, T3
Gold; Y23, Y26, YR23, E33
Turquoise; BG53, BG57, BG18, T5

Thanks for stopping by... Have a great day.

The digis are only going to be available through the Kickstarter Campaign and you have to support the project to have them! It's a lovely pretty project for children, let's have a look and you'll love it for sure!

The name of the fairy I chosen for my project is "Pink Fairy", so I immediately thought of  pink hair!

A Orange SeaHorses

Hi everybody,
 It's me, Saskia from the Netherlands.

One of the most beautiful places on earth is probably the sea,  but the most people don't take such good care of nature. Personally I'm a true lover of the life in the sea, especailly seahorses and dolphins. Actually I think everything under the sea is beautiful.

The seahorse are a small species of vertebrate that are found in the tropical shallows and temperate waters around the world. The seahorse is also commonly found around coral reefs where there's plenty of food and places for the seahorse to hide. Seahorses can also be found in many different colours but the exact colour of the seahorse is down to the particular species of seahorse and the area in which it lives.

So today I have an orange seahorse for you all. 

The background is made with Dylusions paints, stencils and stamps from Studio Light.
The little bubbles I drew with a multiliner.

The colours I used are:
YR000-01-02-04-12-14-16-18 and 21

I hope you enjoyed my page and I'll see you next month.
Have a creative day.

My way to colour with Copics

Hello everyone!
It's Vili here today, sharing a new video tutorial for 
my way to colour with Copics
As the colouring itself took me more than half an hour I've slightly quicken the video and I've added all the markers, which I used.
You'll see how I 'wash away' with a lighter marker some mistakes in the hair.
I used Mo's Digital Pencil's 'Walker'.

Copics used:
Skin: E50, E51, Е53, Е55, Е93, R32
Hair: E31, E33, E35, E37, E77, E79
Clothes: RV91, RV93, RV95, RV99, W9
Shadow: W0, W3, W5

Have a lovely day and thanks for stopping by!

Image that will be paintings

Hi all copic fans. It is I Rozzan that will inspire you today. 
I would first like to reveal a secret....I will be a grandmother in November, and it will be sooo fun. 
I decided to color a few themes that later will be paintings for my little grandson. The image I chose from  a coloring book online.  

Skin: E50,00,11, R20  and beard: T5 + blender
Coat: BV20,23,25,29 and shoes: V01,05,06,09
Hat and pants: B21,41,37,39

I have not painted some shadows or background because I wanted focusing on the copic subject. 
My thought is that I will paint all of the seven little dwarfs, but I have not had time for everyone yet.
Each image will have one of the other subjects' color. 
Here I have chosen to follow the pink / purple on the hat and shoes. The colors is V01,05,06,09.
But also the skin will be the same on all Dwarfs.

Skin: E50,00,11,R20 
Coat: G40,43,46 and buttons: Y23,26
Hat: V01,05,06,09 and shoes: E70,71,77

Until I'm done with all the motifs so I put only one photo mat behind the subject.
The next time I blog,
 I hope to be finished with the rest of the dwarves and even have created paintings of them.

Have a good time!

To be honest I love all kind of animals, everything that purrs, crawls, barks, jumps, chirps, neighs, tweet, sings, roars, hisses, croaks, is furry or not, is cute or creepy, tiny or big I LOVE THEM ALL...but you always have a few favorites among them. don't you?  and one of my favorites are cats. So when I came across this wonderful catstamp by Stampendous, I had to buy it and use it in my journal. 

The background is made with Dylusions paints and Dutch Doobadoo stencils. 

I didn't want a realistic looking cat so I decided to use some of the bright Copic colours. 
I used the Copic Airbrush to blend the different colours, cause the blending is much easier this way and I was going to cut out the images anyway so spraying ink outside the lines was no problem ;-)

For a second layer I used the a few of the stencils I used for the large background too. 
Copic Markers are fabulous when combined with colouring mediums, so I added some more depth with colouring pencils. 

The colours I used are:
BV08, RV04, R35,Y15, YR18, YG07, B04 AND BG05

All the lettering and doodling is done with the Copic multiliners and a white molotov marker. 

hope you enjoyed my page and I'll see you next month

have a creative day
