Cupcake and... pencils, take 3:-)!

Hello all! I hope you are well? It is the start of a new challenge at Cupcake and this week the theme has been chosen by our lovely Shelly, "Take a Leaf out of My Book", so she would like leaves to be the main interest on your projects! We are sponsored by Tickled Pink Stamps and the winner will get to choose one rubber stamp or 2 digital images. Our monthly sponsors are Polka Doodles offering an adorable CD collection called Pretty Sweet, and Scrap Affair, offering a pack of five Promarkers!

Ma carte, et je n'ai pas pu résister à l'appel de mes crayons pour la 3e fois... (la 2e étant dans le message précédent, posté il y a quelques heures)...


I looked for a stamp with a tree or tree leaves, and finally realised that mistletoe had leaves too, which saved me! Perfect opportunity for me to use that adorable stamp I was very lucky to win at the All That Scraps Challenge 2 weeks ago:-)! Close up and recipe...
J'ai passé beaucoup de temps à chercher dans les tiroirs un tampon avec un arbre, pour finalement me rendre compte que le gui avait des feuilles! Parfaite excuse pour utiliser ce tout nouveau tampon que j'ai eu la chance de gagner au challenge d'All That Scraps il y a 2 semaines:-)! Image et recette...

Make It Colourful #39 and challenges

Hello all! I hope you are well? Two good news, the weekend is almost here:-) and we have a brand new challenge for you at Make It Colourful, sponsored by Make It Crafty:-)! The theme this week is "Texture", so we would like you to create your own texture using your colouring medium. My teamies cards are fantastic examples, you can see them all in the gallery HERE.
Bonjour à toutes! Deux bonnes nouvelles, 1- c'est presque le week-end et 2- nous avons un nouveau challenge Make It Colourful pour vous, sponsorisé par Make It Crafty! Le thème? "Texture", il faut se concentrer sur l'aspect/ le rendu des différentes matières. Ca semble compliqué, mais ça ne l'est pas tant que ça:-)... Mes collègues vous ont préparé des exemples superbes, à voir dans la galerie ICI...

My card and recipe, then a few explanations...

Stamps: Make It Crafty Little Village Scene, Sugar Nellie Knitted With Love, LOTV sentiment
Copics
DPs: BoBunny
 Die: Magnolia Heart Swirl

For my scene, I "mirrored" my MIC image and slightly rotated it to have the angle I wanted. For the colouring, I tried to add texture to different things but I especially tried to focus on the wood of the fence and also on the clothes/hat of the fairy... Let's look at the image only...
Je me suis concentrée sur le bois de la barrière et aussi sur le bonnet de la fée (ça ne se voit pas mais je vais expliquer...)

For the fence, I did not blend my colours too much and gave brushstrokes to render the "veins" of the wood. As for the fairy...
Pour le bois, j'ai donné quelques coups de Copic pour rendre les veines du bois et ne pas avoir une barrière toute lisse. Quant à la fée...

For the trim of the hat and pompoms, I used C0, 1, 3 and made little dots. Now I also tried something invisible on the purple part of the hat:-), but I will explain what I tried to do (and failed to do). The tiny  white dots are not due to the paper, but to what I did. I did  not want the hat to look completely smooth and I read a fascinating article by Marianne Walker on how to colour a sweater HERE. I put a couple of drops of colourless blender on a felt pad, and very gently (way too gently, because of fear LOL!!!) dabbed on the purple surface. I did the same thing on the woolen heart too.
Pour le bord du bonnet et les pompons, j'ai utilisé mes Copic C0, 1, 3 et fait des petits points. Ensuite j'ai fait quelque chose d'invisible sur le violet du bonnet... Je vous explique ce que j'ai essayé (et raté!). Les minuscules points blancs ne sont pas liés au papier... Je voulais éviter d'avoir une surface lisse et je me suis inspirée d'un super article de Marianne Walker sur la colorisation d'un pull ICI. J'ai mis quelques gouttes de colourless blender sur un petit bout de feutre de mon applicateur alcool et j'ai délicatement (trop délicatement, mais à cause de la peur!!!) tamponné le bonnet. J'ai fait la même chose sur le gros coeur en laine, je voulais voir quelques fibres... Subtil...


I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
The Sugar Bowl - #70 Maria Therese's great sketch (optional CAS)
Charisma Cardz - #43 Anything Goes
Meljen's Designs - #82 Christmas
Dutch Dare - #136 Pearls and Swirls
The Paper Shelter - #37 Anything Goes
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes

One last thing before I go, until Sunday the 30th, if you place an order at Make It Crafty, you will get a fantastic spoooky freebie you don't want to miss, all the details can be found HERE! Thank you for stopping by today, have a lovely day!
Dernière chose, si vous passez commande chez Make It Crafty jusqu'à dimanche, vous recevrez une superbe image en cadeau, regardez LA! Merci de votre visite et à bientôt,
Hugs

ABC Christmas Challenge V is for... Where are my Copics?:-)

Hello all! We have a new challenge for you at ABC Christmas but first, WOW, what an amazing number of entries we had for our U challenge! We hope you will be able to join us this week too! The letter this week is V for Vintage, which is a little out of my comfort zone:-) but gave me the opportunity to try something different, you'll see in a moment... We have 2 fantastic sponsors for you this week, The Ribbon Reel...


offering the following fab prize,


and Crafty Emma's Store, offering a £10 gift voucher:-)

Bonjour à toutes! Voici venir le nouveau challenge d'ABC Christmas, et nous en sommes à la lettre V comme Vintage! Pas vraiment mon style habituel, mais j'en ai profité pour expérimenter quelque chose... explications un peu plus bas. Nous sommes sponsorisés par The Ribbon Reel (de beaux rubans à gagner) et par Crafty Emma's Store (bon d'achat de £10).

My vintage card:-)

No, I am not fed up with my Copics, I will NEVER be, but I have wanted to try pencils for some time, so here is my very first image coloured in pencil. I wanted to watch tutorials before trying, but I just felt the urge to colour and voilà! Two obvious conclusions... 1) I need to practice 2) I need more pencils:-)!!!
Non, je n'abandonne pas mes Copics, ça JAMAIS!, mais cela fait un moment que j'ai envie d'essayer les crayons de couleur, c'est chose faite, voici ma toute première image colorisée ainsi. Je voulais regarder des tutoriels avant de me lancer, mais l'envie m'a prise et donc j'ai colorié! Deux conclusions: 1) il faut que je m'entraîne et 2) il me faut plus de crayons:-)!!!

Stamp: Magnolia Tilda Hiding Gift
Colouring: Faber Castell Polychromos
DPs: BoBunny and MME
Die: Magnolia Tilda Lace
Embellishments: Make It Crafty Swirly Corners Chipboard, pearls and ribbon from stash

Make It colourful #38 Week 2


Hello all! I hope you are well? It is the second week for our challenge at Make It Colourful and the theme is just perfect to make a start on or continue your Christmas cards, it is "Colouring Snow"! You can use any image you want, all we want to see is your colouring of snow! You can see all the DT's examples in the gallery and if you join us, you could win a $20 store credit at Make It Crafty!
Bonjour à toutes! C'est la 2e semaine du challenge de Make It Colourful dont le thème est de "colorier la neige"!

Pour ma carte, j'ai utilisé une des nouvelles images de Make It Crafty, Winter Park (légèrement modifiée), combinée à une Gorjuss...

I stamped my Gorjuss girl, masked my image then printed my MIC background, and then had a lot of fun colouring that scene! I decided it would be daytime and not night despite the lampost and the GG called "The Winter's Night":-)! For the snow I used Copics W0, 1, 3, and BG0000, 000.
J'ai tamponné ma Gorjuss, je l'ai masquée, puis j'ai imprimé mon fond Make It Crafty. J'ai beaucoup aimé colorier cette scène et j'ai décidé, malgré le reverbère et le nom de cette Gorjuss (The winter's NIGHT:-)) de faire une scène de jour. Pour la neige, j'ai utilisé mes Copics W0, 1, 3, BG0000, 000.
