Christmas card with Koko and the reindeer

  


Hello everyone 


It's my turn to share a card and I have used

 the gorgeous Koko and Reindeer Digital stamp.





I have been watching a few videos on YouTube and really wanted to try colouring in 
a snow scape with my Copic markers.


I have printed the Digital stamp onto Xpress-It blending card and coloured it in with my Copic pens.
I have then drawn in freehand the snow line in the background.
 
Colouring the night sky was next starting with my darkest blue and moving down through to the
 lightest blue leaving a circle in the top edge to add my moon which I have drawn in freehand.




The trees are drawn freehand on top of the coloured night sky.

I have fussy cut out my coloured in elephant and reindeer and glued them down onto my 
completed background.

Once everything is in place I have used a white gel pen to add the snow! 
It does take awhile that's for sure 

Lastly I have stamped my sentiment and cut it down to size.
 Lastly I have trimmed down my card using a large stitched rectangle die.

Supplies Used: 


For a full list of the copic markers I used please go to my blog:

see you next time

Wishing You A Awesome Birthday

  


Hi there


I have a new project to share with you

 and features the Stampingbella Tiny Townie

Susie the Succulent stamp.



I love this cute little image and decided to stamp on craft card and 
colour with Prismacolor pencils.

Once coloured in I have die cut the image to frame it and double 
mounted onto terracotta and black card.


I have die cut the word "awesome" twice and shaded with 
pencils to accent the word allowing it to stand out a little.







Supplies used: 

Stampingbella: Susie the Succulent stamp set

Avery Elle: Wonky Stitches

Creative Expressions: Essential Words 

Prismacolor Pencils


Don't forget to pop into the store to have a look at the great ranges that you can preorder,

Penny Black Silhouette card

  


Hi there 


I thought I would share a quick card for Bizzy Becs today.

To create this card I used my blending brushes and distress oxide inks to create my back ground. 

I started blending Tumbled Glass Distress Oxide at the top of my card, then blended that into Milled Lavender followed by Worn Lipstick and finally Dusty Concord creating a light sunset sky.








Once I had the right depth of colour and tones I allowed the ink to dry off completely so that I could stamp and emboss my image in the next step.







Using a stamping platform I have stamped my images in black ink and coated with clear embossing powder to help the black pop off the background

My sentiment is simply cut out of black card and glued onto the card.


Supplies Used:

Penny black - Happy Notes Stamp Set

Creative Expressions - Guess who thinks you're Special mini die


Distress Oxide inks:

Tumbled Glass

Milled Lavender

Worn Lipstick

Dusty Concord

Picket Fence blending Brushes


Don't forget to pop into the store and have a look at these great ranges that you can pre-order and if you can't find what you're looking foe send Bec an email.


Until next time
