More 100% Copics for Copic Europe


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing the card I made for Copic Marker Europe, a 100% Copic card just because I love doing that and the more colouring for me the better:)... So no Dps but a few die cuts though! Here is what I made...

Bonjour à tous! Je vous montre la carte que j'ai faite pour Copic Europe, une carte 100% Copic juste parce que j'adore ça, plus je colorie et mieux je me porte:)... Pas de papiers, mais des découpes quand même! Voilà ce que j'ai fait... 



All the products I used on the card are by CC Designs and this cute little pair is Swiss Pixies Sisters. To make my card, I cut a piece of Make It Colour Blending card (also available from Quixotic Paperie HERE if you are in Europe) and coloured a sky with a few clouds, then I added the grass using the chisel ends of my markers and colouring from darkest to lightest colour. The fence is a die called Four Season Fence. I quickly coloured it with the chisel end of my E43 marker, then stamped on it in Memento Rich Cocoa Ink with my Woodgrain Stamp. I then used half my die cut Four Season Tree and coloured it with Copics again, just like the leaves. Oh and the little birds are from the Birdie Day stamp set. Then I cut out my characters and added them to my scene.

Tous les produits que j'ai utilisés sont des CC Designs et ces 2 adorables petites sont le tampon Soeurs  Swiss Pixies Sisters. Pour ma carte, j'ai découpé un bout de papier (aussi disponible chez Quixotic Paperie ICI si vous êtes en Europe) et j'ai colorié un ciel avec quelques nuages, puis j'ai ajouté l'herbe en utilisant la pointe biseautée de mes Copic et j'ai colorié du plus foncé au plus clair. LA barrière est une découpe qui s'appelle Four Season Fence. Je l'ai coloriée avec mon E43, puis j'ai tamponné mon tampon texture bois Woodgrain à l'encre marron. Puis j'ai ajouté la moitié d'une découpe arbre Four Season Tree, coloriée au Copic aussi, tout comme les feuilles. Les petits oiseaux viennent du set de tampons Birdie Day. J'ai découpé et ajouté mes personnages à la scène.

Christmas Trees are blue at Quixotic Paperie:)


Hello all! I am back to share the card I made for the last day of our Christmas week at Quixotic Paperie! Have you all seen and entered the Giveaway? If not, you have until 30th November to do so, all the details can be found here! For today, I made a card featuring a super cute Some Odd Girl stamp and some Make It Crafty chipboard perfect for the season...



And yes, of course, Christmas trees can be blue, why not ;)! First I stamped Ornament Tia on Make It Colour Blending Card in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and coloured her with my Copics. I stamped the inside of the bauble with a motive that is part from the Ornament Tia set and my sentiment comes from the set too. And that gorgeous tree is by Make It Crafty from the Wonky Christmas Trees Chipboard set. I used the biggest tree - 6 parts that can be layered. I used acrylic paint to colour it and give it some texture - I actually painted it green first, but changed my mind and went for blue in the end :)! And at the top, I put a Delicate Snowflake Chipboard, covered in Stickles.


Stamps: Some Odd Girl Ornament Tia set
Colouring: Copics on  Make It Colour Blending Card (or from MIC here if you are outside Europe)

Challenges I am entering:
Fashionista Challenge - Blue Christmas
Wags 'n Whiskers - Christmas
7 Kids College Fund - Anything Goes

No line with Copics for MIC


Hello all! Here I am with a "special" Make It Crafty make:)... I happened to be on Facebook last Sunday while ((cough)) working/ doing my homework and I saw a gorgeous angel image coloured by Zoe pop on my screen... No line colouring in progress... She actually coloured and shared step by step photos of her colouring, oh what a joy!! I did follow and enjoy every step and decided I should have a go with my Copics. So here is my VERY CAS card with no lines, totally inspired by Zoe:) Thank you:)!


I chose the adorable Fairy Twinkles because I wanted to see what a manga image would look like coloured like that (and I made her look not manga anymore LOL!) First, I changed the "light setting" of my digi in Word to get a very pale image, printed it on Make It Colour Blending Card and coloured with my Copics. Once my image was completely coloured I used pencils on her eyes and on a very few details. I then added a little piece of ribbon, a Six Point Snowflake Chipboard and a pearl. Here are the Copics I used...  


Skin and eyes: E0000, 000, 00, 21 / B32, BG000 
Hair: E21, 25, 29, 49
Outfit: B32, 34, 37, 39, W0, 1, 3, 5
Bells: Y11, 21, 26, 28
Wings: B32, 34, 37, BG000, BV0000, 000, 00, 02

My scene is coloured with Copics on Make It Colour Blending Card (also available from MIC here) and features a Gorjuss Girl called Toadstools (I only kept the character) and Snowman With Scarf. For the background, I used elements from the new Make It Crafty Winter Backgrounds Collection (or here from MIC) - the bench is Winter Seat and the tree background was made with the Pine Trees stamps, a set of two different trees which you can combine as you want to create a forest.
I added a Whimsy Stamps sentiment from the Holiday Notables 2 Set and die cut the shape with my Shapeology Die - Snowflake Notables 2 and cut off the snowflakes to have the shape fit my scene.

Stamps: Gorjuss Toadstools and Snowman With Scarf, Make It Crafty Winter Backgrounds Collection (or HERE from MIC) and Whimsy Stamps Holiday Notables 2 Set
Colouring: Copics on  Make It Colour Blending Card (or from MIC here if you are outside Europe)

Arctic Princess at Quixotic Paperie


Hello everyone! It's Sunday, so time to share the card I made with my Quixotic Paperie goodies! Have you seen the new SCACD release? Well there are some fantastic new stamps, from the Susanna Loves Stamps Collection and I'm using one today!  I love sea images and I love mermaids, so I had no other choice than colouring Arctic Princess!

Bonjour à tous! Voici l'heure de vous montrer une petite carte que j'ai faite pour Quixotic Paperie. Avez-vous vu les nouveautés SCACD? Plusieurs superbes tampons dans la gamme Susanna Loves Stamps Collection, dont voici un exemple. Mer, sirène, j'adore, pas d'autre choix que de colorier Arctic Princess!  


I have never coloured a mermaid in pencil, so I thought it would be nice to try. I used my Polychromos to colour Arctic Princess and she was a joy to colour! I added four Make It Crafty Swirly Corners, coloured them in pencil too, and embellished them with pearls. Simples, but I hope I have done her justice!

Je n'avais jamais essayé de colorier une sirène au crayon, maintenant c'est fait! J'ai utilisé mes Polychromos bien sûr:-)! J'ai ajouté 4 coins Make It Crafty Swirly Corners, coloriés au crayon aussi, et décorés d'une petite perle.

Stamp: SCACD Arctic Princess
Colouring: Polychromos
Embellishments: Make It Crafty Swirly Corners (also available from MIC HERE)
