Pink and Main Just Ducky | Copic Coloring

Pink and Main Just Ducky

 

Hey crafty friends! I hope you are having a great day. Sunday’s are probably my most favorite day of the week. It’s a day that I leave for spending time with my family and just recuperating from the previous week.

I have a card to share with you featuring these adorable ducks by Pink and Main. This stamp was the July Stamp of the Month, which is subscription-based. You can still purchase the stamp but being part of the subscription does provide a discount.

For this card, I stamped all of the images onto smooth white cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black dye ink. All the images are colored with Copic Markers using the color combinations listed below.

 

Pink and Main Just Ducky

Copic Marker Combination

Yellow: Y15, Y13, Y11, Dot texture: YR04, Y38, Y13, White Gel Pen
Orange: YR18, YR12
Water: B05, B02, B00
Cat Tails: E19, E15, E13, E11
Green: YG67, YG25, YG13, YG0

Once I finished coloring the images, I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out. Then I began creating the background.

I used a recently released background stamp from Simon Says Stamp, which I white heat embossed onto a piece of Bristol Smooth cardstock. Next, I ink blended the background using Spun Sugar and Kitsch Flamingo Distress Oxide ink.

Morgan's Art World Fantasy Fae 18

 

Good morning crafty friends! It’s the beginning of a new month and the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends begins with a new challenge. This month, Team A is sponsored by the talented Morgan Fitzsimons from Creative Art Design Studio. For my project, I used a lovely image called Fantasy Fae 18.

To begin my card, I printed the image onto Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock and again on copy paper to create a mask. I simply fussy cut the image and add temporary adhesive to the back. I like to use Zig Two-Way Glue Fine Tip. It is permanent when it is wet, but it dries the adhesive is temporary.

Next, I added my mask and ink blended the background. I began with Tumbled Glass closest to the image, then Blueprint Sketch, and finally Chipped Sapphire just at the outer edges of the panel. I added texture to the background with diluted acrylic white paint. And finally, I colored in the main image with Copic Markers.

Copic Color Combination

Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000
Hair: E49, E29, E27, E25, E23
Feathers: RV17, RV55, RV52
Shirt: G21, YG61, G40
Flower: RV09, RV55, RV52, Y02, Y00

After coloring the image, I used a large stitched rectangle die to die cut the panel to an A2-sized piece. I added the sentiment which I white heat embossed onto the background. And finally, I added a few clear round drops.

Julia Spiri Little Ballerina | World Wide Open Challenge | Design Team Project

Julia Spiri Little Ballerina

Hey crafty friends, welcome to the World-Wide Open Design Challenge for the month of August. For this month’s card, I used Little Ballerina by Julia Spiri, found here

This month I opted for a simpler card design by focusing on the image with a little ink blending. I printed the image onto a 4.25 x 5.5 piece of smooth white cardstock then printed another copy onto regular copy paper. I used this second print to create a simple mask by fussy cutting the image and adding liquid adhesive. For a repositionable hold, I typically use Zig 2 Way Glue then allow the mask to dry clear.

Copic Color Combination

Skin: E04, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E29, E27, E25, E23, E21
Lips: RV17
Outfit: RV17, RV55, RV52, RV10, RV000, N01, N0
Ground: N0, N1, N2, Dot texture: N5

 

Julia Spiri Little Ballerina

 

Before coloring the image, I ink blended the background using a Watercolor Wash Rectangle Stencil with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide ink.

Next, I colored in the image using Copic Markers and used a stitched rectangle die to trim the panel. To finish this card, I stamped out a sentiment, clear embossed, and added a few clear beads.

Heffy Doodle Fluffy Puffy Unicorns

 

Hey crafty friends! I am super excited to join a handful of talented paper crafters in an Instagram Hop celebrating our love for Heffy Doodle products. As fans, we have come together to inspire you with projects featuring the cute and whimsical Heffy Doodle. For my card, I used the Fluffy Puffy Unicorns Stamp set as well as the Cloudy Skies Stencil.

I began my card by stamping all of the images from the Fluffy Puffy Unicorns with Memento Tuxedo Black ink onto Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock.

I colored all of the images with my favorite coloring medium, Copic Markers, then used my ScanNCut to cut the images out.

Body: N3, N1, N0
Dot texture: N5, N3, white gel pen, sparkle gelly roll pen

Heffy Doodle Fluffy Puffy Unicorns

 

For the background, I ink blended a piece of smooth cardstock with Catherine Pooler’s Party Dress. I wanted a pretty bold background and added several layers of ink. Next, I used the Cloudy Skies Stencil and white pigment ink. Alternating the cloud shapes, I added a small amount of white pigment ink at the edge using a finger dauber. For a little texture interest, I added white and pink diluted acrylic paint splatters.

Once the panel was dry, I die-cut the panel using a slimline fancy frame die. I also die-cut a piece of white cardstock with a slimline stitched die for the mat. To complete this card, I adhered all of the elements using foam adhesive or liquid glue.

There is an opportunity to win a prize, generously donated by Lesly Oman, the owner of Heffy Doodle. I encourage you to stop by my Instagram to begin this fun and inspiring hop.

After coloring the image, I used my ScanNCut to cut the image out then worked on creating the background.

I ink blended a panel of smooth cardstock using Spun Sugar in the center of the panel, Kitsch Flamingo, and Wilted Violet at the edges. For a little interest, I added white and purple splatters by diluting acrylic paint and flicking the splatters with a paintbrush.

For the shaker element, I die cut a piece of white cardstock using Gift Box Cover-up die then began assembling all of the elements together.

I added clear acetate and foam adhesive to the back of the shaker element, then added the shaker bits. To complete my card, I added my image and a sentiment that was white heat embossed onto black cardstock.

LeAnn’s World 101 Candycane | Lil Patch of Crafty Friends | Design Team Project

LeAnn's World 101 Candycane

Good morning crafty friends and happy Fourth of July to those the are in the US!  Today we celebrate Christmas in July over at the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog. For my holiday-inspired project, I created a wintery scene featuring Candycane image by LeAnn’s World 101, found here.

I printed my image to fit a standard A2 size panel and set it in the foreground. Next, I created the background using Copic Markers. Whenever I create a card with this much detail, I typically work on the background first. This way, if I don’t like the background, I have not spent any time coloring the main image.

Copic Color Combination

Sky: B91, B00, BG000, BG0000
Mountain: E70, E000, E0000, B60, BG0000, B000, B0000

Holly Leaves and Berries: YG17, YG06, YG00, R39, R27
Ground Snow: B00, B000, B0000
White Gel Pen for snow

LeAnn's World 101 Candycane

 

I stamped the large scripty sentiment and used a white gel pen to add falling snow across the entire card front.

To complete my card, I trimmed the panel using a stitched rectangle die slightly smaller than A2 size card. I added a pink mat to a side folding card base then added my main panel with liquid adhesive.

I hope you’ll stop by the Lil Patch of Crafty Friends Challenge Blog and celebrate Christmas in July with us. Don’t forget to check out the other design team members and enter for your chance to win one of two prizes from our two fabulous sponsors.

Gerda Steiner Designs Catch a Wave

 

Hey crafty friends! It is officially summer, and this little duck is celebrating in a big wavy way. In my part of the world, summer is pretty hot and we do spend a lot of time in the water. Although we don’t spend as much time at the ocean as this little ducky, we do hit the pool on most days.

For this beach-themed card, I used the little ducky from Gerda Steiner Designs’ Catch a Wave. I stamped all of the images onto white smooth cardstock and colored the images with Copic Markers.

Ducky: Y08, Y04, Y00 on the second blend I added YR04

Gerda Steiner Designs Catch a Wave

 

I used several dies to create the beach scene. First, I ink blended a piece of Bristol smooth cardstock with Squeezed Lemonade, Mustard Seed, and Wild Honey Distress Oxide inks. Next, I created the splatters with acrylic paint. And finally, I die cut the panel using an Avery Elle Ellements die.

For the bottom of the scene, I ink blended the ocean waves with Blueprint Sketch, the sand with Antique Linen, and die cut both of the pieces with Kinetic Straight Waves Die Set by Whimsy Stamps.

To finish my card, I added a white heat embossed sentiment and arranged my images and die-cut elements using foam adhesive or liquid adhesive.

This little ducky sure has the right idea to start off the summer! As always, thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!
