I was in an experimental mood last night and decided to attempt to colour a full sized stamp with Copics and a touch of Prismacolor pencils and hoo boy, I am in love! It is sooooo much easier colouring on the Kraft card instead of the white (hides any mistakes lol). I did try with the pencils only but I could not get the depth of colour that I wanted without my beloved copics.
And I got me some new papers (ssssh don’t tell Tony, he will flip!!) but how could anyone resist this K & Co Glad Tidings pad?? Not me for sure. OMW I broke out in hives when I cut into these babies! And I just remembered I used one of my forgotten Crealies dies for the border. The stamp, papers and die are all from Dies to Die For.
Copics and pencils used are
Skin: E13, E11, E00, R20
Reds: R39, R37, R35, R32, tuscan red and black pencil
Greens: YG99, YG67, YG63, YG61, olive green and black pencil
Gold: YR24, YR21, Y11
Browns: E29, E25, E50 and dark umber pencil
Fur and ground white, cool grey 70% and lilac pencils
Check out that dinky little candy cane!! I got it from BeadCrafty along with the sweetest little reindeer in the next picture. So cute! I received my order the day after I placed it (free P&P too!) – I was well impressed
The gorgeous lace, trellis rose, carnation, 15mm roses, tulips, and crown pins are from Wild Orchid Crafts.
How CUTE is that reindeer lol.
I’ve finished off the inside to compliment the front, as always. The fur and snow looks gold in this picture, it’s the lights reflecting off the diamond stickles, it is white – honest.
I’ve popped this in my Etsy shop along with another card.
And if you’re still with me you will want to know what I’m giving away lol. It’s a £25 voucher to spend on the BeadCrafty website!! All you need to do is leave a comment and I will draw a winner on Friday night (only comments up to 7pm UK time on the 25th will be included in the draw please), and if you could mention this on your blog if you have one that would be great, but not necessary to be in the draw.
Have a fabulous day
