Colouring video: LotV Stargazing

I have another colouring video for you today. This time I’ve done a pretty quick one. I wanted to show that it’s not that important to stay within the lines or colour up carefully to get a good result. Scribbling can be a great way to do a sky, for example, and how you can quickly get a snowy effect on your image. By colouring up the image and giving it a background, you have a pretty quick and easy clean and simple card if you do it in a bigger size, and a great image for the centre of the card if you do it a bit smaller. Digital stamps are great that way. I will post the card up in a couple of days.

There is no audio for this video.

LOTV Spring bunny

I was having fun colouring up a few of the stamps from the early spring release at Lili of the Valley while I was on maternity leave. Recently I’ve got all of my crafting space set up after our move earlier this year and that means I’ve been able to make them into cards! Here is one of them.

The sentiment is also by Lili of the Valley and the dies are by La-La Land Crafts.

Colouring Video: Heart Tied

Sometimes colouring in red can be a little bit intimidating as some people find it hard to blend or get the red to look as they want it, so for this video I’ve decided to colour the majority of the image with red markers. The image I’ve coloured is from the latest Tiddly Inks release and is called Heart Tied. I posted up the card I made with this image about a week ago and you can find it here.

Colouring video: Marci with Snowman

I am back with a new video today. It is my turn for a tutorial on the La La Land Crafts blog. I’ve decided to colour up another one of their stamps in no-lines. This time I’ve gone with Marci with Snowman. Everything is coloured with resonably soft colours this time and I’ve used somewhat nontraditional winter colours.
