Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubbles Sentiment | Copic Coloring

Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubble Sentiments

 

Hey crafty friends! I’m sharing a fun birthday Rainbow-inspired card today featuring the adorable little mouse from Lawn Fawn’s Scripty Bubbles Sentiment stamp set.

My intention was to create a mouse holding a balloon for a fun Rainbow birthday card. I started by arranging the images in my Misti since I would be repeat stamping, then I stamped out the image several times. Next, using a Copic-friendly black marker, I drew a line connecting the images to create a string for the balloon.

Copic Marker Combination

Pink Mouse/Balloon: RV66, RV55, RV52, RV10, RV00 (On Balloon)
Green Mouse/Balloon: YG17, YG06, YG03, YG01, YG00
Blue Mouse/Balloon: BG07, BG05, BG02, BG01, BG000
Yellow Mouse/Balloon:  Y38, Y18, Y15, Y13, Y11
Orange Mouse/Balloon: YR09, YR07, YR04, YR02, YR01

 

For the background, I decided to create a rainbow watercolor smooshing look. Using a piece of acetate, I smooshed the ink onto white cardstock and added additional water droplets with a clean brush. I used Kitch Flamingo, Mowed Lawn, Mermaid Lagoon, Mustard Seed, and Carved Pumpkin to create the background. When I was happy with the background, I set the entire panel to completely dry.

 

Lawn Fawn Scripty Bubble Sentiments

 

I used the Scalloped Slimline with Hearts in Landscape die to die-cut a piece of black cardstock. I layered the die-cut on a piece of slate gray cardstock and stamped out the sentiment. To create a little interest to the background, I created a stencil by die-cutting cardstock with the Polka Heart Backdrop by Lawn Fawn and ink blending an bolder colors of Distress Oxide ink. Finally, I added the watercolor panel with foam adhesive to layered cardstock.

I have a speed coloring video on my Instagram for you to check out if you’re interested, where I share how I colored one of the images.  As always thank you so much for stopping by, until next time….sprinkle a little creativity on your day!

MFT Stamps Adorable Elephants | Copic Coloring

MFT Stamps Adorable Elephants

Hey crafty friends! I have made a personal goal to reach into my stash of older stamps and use them at least once. For today’s card, I picked out an oldie but a goodie to start my challenge.

I began by stamping out the images from MFT Stamps onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb. cardstock using Memento Tuxedo ink. I used my Copic Markers to color in the images, and then I used my ScanNCut to cut the images out.

 

Copic Marker Combination

Elephant: C5, C3, C1, C0, C7 for deep shadows
Ears: RV52, RV00, 0
Balloon: RV69, RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02
Flowers: RV06, RV02, Y15, Y00
Butterflies: RV09, RV06, RV04, RV02

 

MFT Stamps Adorable Elephants

 

For the background, I created a simple cloud stenciled sky using the Mini Cloud Edge stencil and grass using the Tucked in Turf, Vertical die for this mini-scene. I used the stitched rectangle die from the A2 Stitched Rectangle STAX Set 2 Die-namics to die-cut all of the elements for my background.

Finally, to complete this card, I added a gray mat to an A2-sized white card base, then layered the background elements using foam adhesive, images, and finally added a white heat embossed sentiment strip.

I created the background by stamping out a scripty-background stamp onto a piece of Neenah Solar White Cardstock, then ink blended the background using Distress Oxide Ink in Kitch Flamingo. I just love this color by the way!

Aviator Cat

 

Good morning crafty friend! Welcome to the World-Wide Open Design Team “Anything Goes” challenge! This month I chose to create with Aviator Cat by the lovely Julia Spiri. I encourage you to check out her amazing work here.

Taking inspiration from Amelia Earhart, I colored in the cat with my Copic Markers, after printing the image onto Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock.

Copic Color Combination 
Cat: YR27, YR24, YR21, Y32, N7, R22, R20
Pink: R85, R83, R81
Gray: N5, N3, N1, N0

Once the coloring was complete, I used my ScanNCut to cut the image out. Next, I created the background using an embossing folder with dashed lines. I wanted to convey visual movement like a plane would make on some destination.

Using the Tim Holtz Small Talk Stickers, I picked out the sentiment and added it to my card front with foam adhesive. To finish this card, I added pink clay hearts and a compass for embellishments.

I printed the image onto a piece of Neenah Solar White 80lb cardstock and colored the main image with Copic Markers. Once my main image was colored, I created a mask by printing the image again onto a piece of paper, fussy cutting, and adding repositionable adhesive to the back of the image.

I die-cut the panel using a large stitched rectangle die, then ink blended with Distress Oxide inks in Mustard Seed and Dried Marigold, leaving the bottom portion for grass.

While my mask was in place, I added a little interest to my card by adding white splatters. I immediately removed the masks and allowed the panel to dry.

To complete this card, I stamped out the sentiment and heat embossed it before adhering the card panel to a white card base.
