LotV Kitty hugs

Tomorrow there’ll be a new Lili of the Valley release and this cute image is a part of it! I’ve coloured it up with Copic markers as usual and kept the card simple. Red was my go-to colour this time. The text strip will also be available with this release.

Sweet celebration slimline

I’ve finally gotten around to making another slimline card! I’ve coloured up stamps from MFT Stamps and then I used the filmstrip die from Whimsy Stamps for the layout. The little stamps fit perfectly into those squares! I quickly made two sentiments on the computer, as I didn’t have what I wanted at hand, and then coupled it with a word die also from MFT Stamps. A few enamel dots from Altenew and voila! Card done!

This card has been entered into the following challenge:

Colouring Video: MFT + RAM Birthday Cutie

I have another new video for you today! And I am hoping I’ll be able to add them at least monthly from now on! This time I’ve coloured up one of the new My Favorite Things stamps in a no-line version. The stamp is from the new Rachelle Anne Miller line and is called Birthday Cutie. It is a clear stamp and to get the no-line effect I prefer InkOn3’s Fade-Out ink. There is a digital version of this stamp available in Rachelle’s shop here as well.

There is no audio for this and as it’s pretty quick to colour it up. The original, unedited, filming took 20minutes and the finished video is on less than 12 minutes.

If you’d rather view the video directly on YouTube, click here.

I filmed colouring up this one the other day, the image I used for the card below. As you can see, the image in the video isn’t identical. This is because there was something wrong with what I had filmed so I had to film it again. Either way, here is a card sample of what you can make with this kind of coloured image. Click here for more info on the actual card.

The colours used for this video are: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) YR31, E21, E23, E25 (purple) RV91, RV93, RV95 (grey/white) W0, W1, W3 (yellow) YR31, YR21, YR23, E35 + Copic Multiliner 0.1 in cool grey + Sakura GellyRoll 0.8 in white

Colouring video: LotV Grace Love

I have a new colouring video up on my YouTube channel today where I have coloured up one of the new Lili of the Valley stamps that is released today. It is a new line, Grace, and the stamp is called Love. You can find the stamp here. As these are digital stamps you can resize them (do make sure it’s proportional, though) to whichever size you fancy. For a limited time they are also available to pre-order as clear stamps. For the video I’ve used the the pencil sketch version of the stamp and printed it in faint lines to get a no-line effect.

There is no audio for this and as it’s pretty quick to colour it up, the video is only 10 minutes long, which is edited down and sped up a little from the 17 minutes it took me to colour her up.

I have not made the card with this image yet, but I plan to have it done and posted up on the blog next week.

Copics used: (skin) E00, E02, E13, E15, (hair) E21, E23, E25, E27, (dress) YR00, R12, YR02, R22, (heart) R32, R35, R37, R39 and a cool grey coloured Copic multiliner in size 0.1

RAM + MFT: Birthday cutie

There is another new release coming to MFT Stamps this month where Rachelle Anne Miller‘s illustrations are present. I’ve been lucky enough to play with this one before it’s being released Tuesday next week. It’s such an adorable little stamp! I’ve stamped it with Fade-Out Ink and did a no-line version. Once again my markers were arguing with me, so this is the third one I coloured up.

The background is made using Scattered Straw and Milled Lavender Distress Oxide Inks and then I used MFT’s Happy Birthday background stamp on top. The sentiment at the bottom is from the same stamp set as the girl and the stitched rectangle die is also from MFT Stamps.

Copics used: YR31, YR21, YR23, E35, E21, E23, E25, E00, E02, E13, E15, RV91, RV93, RV95, W0, W1, W3
