Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #32


Hello everyone! Today is the start of a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps and our theme this time is "BIRTHDAYS"! We would love to see your Paperbabe products but you are welcome to use any brands you like to join us and play! Here is my CAS card for today:


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Birthday Wishes Clear Stamp Set
Colouring: Distress Inks on Canson MM
Other: Sequins

I used the Birthday Wishes Clear Stamp Set for my card. I watercoloured the background using Distress Inks and stamped two words from the set in Versafine Ink. I used candles from the set and three stamps for the flames, stamped with coloured inks so I did not colour anything. I put them on foam for a bit of dimension then added some sequins for a nice finishing touch. 

Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab Friday and weekend! Hugs,
Delphine xx

Make it Crafty Copic scene


Hello everyone! I'm back to share a Copic scene with a pretty Make it Crafty fairy, skies and hills! Here is my card:


My card was inspired by Zoe and her latest fantastic e-book called Fun Techniques for Colouring Skies available from Make it Crafty, which I used for the sky and hills. I chose Fairy Dahlia by Make it Crafty too, flipped my digi image in Word to have my fairy leaning towards the inside of the scene and cropped it. I printed my cropped fairy and started by creating and colouring the sky and hills. I then coloured my fairy and added a sentiment by Paper Smooches. 


Sky and clouds: 0, B21, 24, 26, 28, C0, 1, 3
Hills: YG03, 06, 17
Skin: E000, 00, 11, 70, R20
Hair: 100, BV04, T7, 9
Dress: C5, R35, 37, 39, 89
Bracelet: Y11, 26

Tiddly Inks Challenge


Hello everyone! It's Tuesday and the start of a new challenge at Tiddly Inks! Our theme is "Fairy Happy" this time, so take your adorable Tiddly Fairies out and come and play with us ;)! I used one of my all time favourites called Fairy Tenderhearted :)


Stamps and images: Tiddly Inks Fairy Tenderhearted
Colouring: Prismacolor Pencils, Zig Clean Colour Real Brush, Watercolour on Canson Montval
Other: Versamark, Embossing Powder

I wanted to create a sort of dramatic sky for my fairy and watercoloured it. The image was stamped in Versafine (yes, I have the stamp set, but the fairy is still available as a digi HERE ;)) and coloured in Prismacolor Pencils for a change. I stamped the sentiment from my set in Versamark and embossed it in white. 

Challenges I am entering:
Crafts And Me - Fairies and Magic

Thank you very much for your visit, hope to see you sharing your fairies too! Hugs,

Paperbabe Stamps April Release - Day 2!


Hello everyone! Today is our second day of previews at Paperbabe Stamps and we are sharing our makes with the Male Face MINI Stamp Set this time and Mixed Media Men Templates in the MINI size too! I once again had great fun creating my man :)


Templates: Paperbabe Stamps MM Men (Side Fringe)
Colouring: Acrylic Paint, Watercolour, Zig Clean Color Real Brush, Polychromos on Arches HP

I started by tracing around my templates in pencil. I coloured the skin in acrylic paint then added details in Polychromos, the hair with just one Zig marker (personal challenge here ;)) and for the acrylic T-shirt, I stamped a black line from the DesignA Tweed Stamp Set (straight line bent on my block) and knits DesignA Knit stamp set. The background was done in watercolour and Zig markers then I added a bit of texture with a stamp from the DesignA Tweed Stamp Set. The sentiment is part of the Art Quote 'Art Risks' stamp.

To see gorgeous inspiration, please visit my teamies on the Paperbabe Stamps Blog HERE! All the new stamps and templates will be available tomorrow Friday 22nd in the store!
Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Paperbabe Stamps April Release - Day 1

 

Hello everyone! Today is the first day of previews at Paperbabe Stamps, the DT are introducing new templates and stamps for April! And this new release is devoted to men this time! Kim has designed a versatile male face stamp set with layered eyes, separate lashes, ears, eyebrows, nose, and even stubble stamp - so everything to create the face you would like to see!
And of course, there are male templates too with three different hairstyles! 
Today's stamp set and templates are Standard Size - here is what I have created, about 9x12" piece:)


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Male Face Standard Stamp Set
Template: Paperbabe Stamps Male Face Template (Side Swept Bangs)
Colouring: Acrylic Paint, Markers and Ink mostly (plus a bit of Polychromos, Posca and Neocolor II) on Canson Fontenay CP

I challenged myself to use only (mostly) acrylics this time - scary for me especially when working big! I traced around my hair template, then aroud the face and neck templates in pencil. I coloured the skin tones in acrylic paint, then stamped the face details. I coloured them and shaded in Polychromos. I then did most of the background and went back to finish my man. The hair was done using mostly acrylic markers and the shirt is acrylic paint with Posca.

To see amazing inspiration, please visit my teamies on the Paperbabe Stamps Blog HERE! I'll see you tomorrow for another make, a bit smaller this time! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

And here is my card :)

Jacinta Dreaming copyr wtmktst

Colouring: Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card
Chipboard: Make it Crafty Delicate Ornate Circle Frame
DPs: Bo Bunny and Too
Other: Sequins, Circle Die, Heart Die

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought about my beloved MiC Chipboard frames and just had to use one! So I picked a Delicate Ornate Circle Frame and chose one of the adorable Sitting Girls to sit on the frame - Jacinta Sitting Dreaming. I die cut a circle matching the size of my chipboard from Bo Bunny DP, coloured my chipboard with a black Copic, glued the frame to the paper, put a piece of striped DP on my card base and glued my frame on foam on my card base. I coloured Jacinta in Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card, cut her out and put her on foam squares. I then added a die cut heart.

Paperbabe Stamps Challenge #15


Hello everyone! Welcome to a new challenge at Paperbabe Stamps! This week our theme is an easy one - ANYTHING GOES! You can join using any stamps you like and there is a gift voucher to the store for grabs!!

I decided to do a little Mixed Media Card using my Mini Profile Face stamps and templates but with a character looking in the opposite direction compared to a card I did before (see banner ;)!) and using mostly watercolour.


Stamps: Paperbabe Profile Face Mini Stamp Set and High in the Sky Stamp Set (sentiment)
Templates: Paperbabe Profile Face Mini MM templates (Curly Fringe)
Colouring: Watercolour, Zig and Polychromos on Canson Montval

I drew around my Profile Face Mini MM templates in pencil and stamped details of the face using my Profile Face Mini Stamp Set. I then coloured everything in watercolour. I went back to add details using Zig markers and Polychromos and added a sentiment to match my sunny background from the High in the Sky Stamp Set.
