LLLC: B/W with a spot of colour

Friday again means it’s time for another La-La Land Crafts project. This time the theme is black and white with a spot of colour. I chose purple as I think it compliments the black and white quite nicely. I’ve mostly keep away from using loads of greys and gone with contrasts instead. I am really quite pleased how it turned out. You can find all the products listed at the bottom of the page along with the copic colours I’ve used.

Here is a close-up of the colouring.

Caithlin with present

Clean and simple really is a favourite of mine, so I thought I’d show you the card I made yesterday. Again it is inspired by Elin. I used a Mo’s Digital Pencil stamp and I have a small cluster of things in the corner. That is so Elin, right?

The adorable image is called Caitlin. Mo’s having a retirement sale and that is one of the stamps I picked up! I’ve coloured it in with copics and added some liquid pearls all around. The text sentiment is by MFT Stamps and I used small bits of washi tape. The paper is by Lawn Fawn and I LOVE it!

And from the side.

LLLC: Pretty Diamonds

The NEW RELEASE at La-La Land Crafts has stencils! And not just any stencils… they come in pairs, so you can use both together or one at a time! How cool is that?!

I’ve used a lighter blue on one of the stencils, then lined the the other over the top and used a darker blue. I think it’s a pretty cool stencil, and you can use one of them several times or use them together as you like. Great way to get multiple colours also! Aaaand they can be used for embossing as well. Unfortunately I don’t have any samples of that myself as I have misplaced my rubber mat somewhere… or it’s hiding.. I’m not sure!

The card is pretty simple. I do like my CAS cards! The life preserver die was cut out in white and then I coloured it in. I think it adds a nice splash of colour on the mostly blue and white card.

Stamps:
Seas the Day background stamp (top sentiment)
Best Mates clear stamp
Jaws Because clear stamp (bottom sentiment)

Dies:

Faythe’s Cherry Flowers

Recently Tiddly Inks was out with a new image. It’s called Faythe’s Cherry Flowers. Of course I had to get it and use it as I think it is really sweet. I quite like the character Faythe and her awesome hair.

If you’d like to see how I’ve coloured up this image, you can see it here. Yes, I’ve made a video of me colouring her up! I hope you enjoy it! I’ll make a seperate post about it tomorrow.

I’ve used various papers from Maja Design along with some La-La Land Crafts dies and a Make It Crafty chipboard which I coloured with both matching colours and the white dots of the dress.

Copics used: (skin) E000, E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E70, E71, E74, E77, E79, (dress and shoes) B91, B93, B95, B97, B99, (flowers) RV52, RV55, R39, YG13, YG63, YG67, (ribbon and shadow) C1, C3, C5

Molly with cake

The colour theme for the magazine was greens and yellows, so I decided, very last minute, to do a really bright, cheerful, green card! I used various papers to create a layered card. I wanted lots of layers as the other card I made was clean and simple.

I decided to use a Tiddly Inks stamps for this, Molly Celebrates seemed suitable for the occasion and she is coloured in with copics. I decided to both distress the edges and use frantage on top.

For the greeting I went with a printed out work onto one of the background papers and coloured up one of Make It Crafty‘s chipboards in colours matching the dress. To soften the edges a little I decided to paint all the edges with white acrylic paint. Then I added a ribbon and some sparkly green paper to make the card even more festive!

As a few photos of the card was required I will show them here. too!

This is a close-up of the greeting and chipboard. I used the same colours on the chipboard as I did on the dress. The same goes for the icandy.
