LotV flying past

There is a new Lili of the Valley release today and it is full of cute little boy stamps! I absolutely love them and the one I will show you first is definitely one of my favourites! As soon as I saw the image I knew how I wanted to the card. Isn’t it great when that happens?

Dusty pink poppy

A few weeks back I shared a card where I had used an Altenew stamp several times and made a whole panel with it. Well, this time I’ve coloured the flower up in no-lines using InkOn3’s FadeOut Ink and I’ve also coloured up the background paper in a similar colour to match the coloured image. I used pretty much the same Copics and colour palette on the previous card, which you can click here to view. It shows quite well how much difference it made when I used a black outline on the stamp compared to this no-lined version.

The text stamp is by Mathia Design (Hobbykunst) and is stamped up using Gina K’s white ink. Gave it a cool effect, I thought. I’ve used stitched rectangle dies by MFT Stamps for both the main stamped panel and the sentiment strip. To top it all off I used three enamel dots by Altenew.

Colouring video: Spring Gnome

It is time for the second video that I uploaded to YouTube yesterday. It is a part of the Whimsy Stamps monthly tutorial for us digital design team members. This month it was my turn. Here I have coloured up the cool spring gnome. The stamp is printed at approximately the size 2 1/2″ by 2 1/2″ on Copic colouring paper. There is no audio on this video.

The colours I’ve used for this video are: (hat) B21, B23, B26, B39, (grass) YG01, YG23, YG17, YG99, (beard and flower white) N1, N3, (bee and centre flower yellow) N5, N7, N9, B21, B23, Y13, Y17, YR16, E08, (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15

Here you can see the finished card I made with this coloured image:

Colouring video: Jillian and Friends

I have made a video using one of the Whimsy Stamps images. (Actually I’ve made two, and they are both up on YouTube, but I will link the other one here tomorrow.) This time I’ve coloured up the girl from the Jillian and Friends stamp set. Here I will also be colouring in some grass under the girl’s feet as you can se below.

The stamp is printed at approximately 2 1/4″ by 3 1/4″ on Copic colouring paper and I have finally had time to do audio to a video again so I will be talking you through my colouring of this image.

I have also made a card using this image. You can see it below:

Mmmm Strawberries!

Our theme this month, at Copic Marker Norge, is something edible. Initially I was going to use a stamp with donuts, but I got a Power Poppy gift certificate for my birthday a few days ago and I simply had to colour up this stamp! Don’t the strawberries look yummy?! I cannot wait for summer and being able to pick some in mum’s garden! Strawberries are delicious!

Copics used: R22, R24, R27, R59, R89, G21, G24, G40, N1, N3, Y11, Y13, Y38, YG01, YG17, YG23, YG97
