Pencil time... Let's go to the beach!


Hello everyone! After Distress Markers, today is pencil time... and time for some Make It Crafty inspiration and time for a new challenge at Cupcake! The challenge this week is "All At Sea" and we are generously sponsored by Marianne Design offering a stamp, 2 dies and ribbon trim! 

Bonjour à tous! Après les marqueurs aquarellables, les crayons aujourd'hui... une scène Make It Crafty et le nouveau challenge de Cupcake! Cette semaine, le thème est "Tous à la mer", il faut faire un projet en rapport avec l'eau. Nous sommes sponsorisés par Marianne Design qui offrent un tampon, 2 dies et du ruban!


For my scene, I have used 4 Make It Crafty digis that I merged using Word - Ebony At Beach, Sandy At Beach, Sandcastle and my favourite background The Beach. I coloured my scene using Neocolor IIs which I love for their intense colours on the sky, sea and sand. The rest of the scene is coloured with my Polychromos. I added a CC Design sentiment and a little heart button with twine. 

J'ai utilisé 4 images Make It Crafty que j'ai combinées avec Word - Ebony At Beach, Sandy At Beach, Sandcastle et mon fond préféré The Beach. J'ai colorié le ciel, la mer et le sable avec mes Neocolor II (j'adore ces couleurs intenses!), et le reste avec mes Polychromos. Sentiment CC Design et un petit bouton coeur.

Birthday scene - Copic Marker Europe DT


Hello all! Today I'm sharing some birthday inspiration I have made for Copic Marker Europe. I've made a little scene that I framed and thought could make a nice present. Very simple, 100% Copics - as often!

Bonjour à tous! Aujourd'hui, je vous montre un petit cadre d'anniversaire que j'ai fait pour Copic Marker Europe.  Très simple et 100% Copic comme j'aime!



Last year, I made the same kind of scene using 3 Tildas, I thought it would be nice to try it with different characters, so here they are! For this scene, I have merged 4 digital images by CC Designs - from left to right Birgitta Blowing Hearts, Bouquet Birgitta, Balloon Lucy and Presents on which Bouquet Birgitta is sitting - and the sentiment is by Magnolia. Here are my characters one by one with the Copics I used for each...

L'an dernier, j'avais fait le même genre de scène en utilisant 3 Tilda et j'avais envie d'essayer avec d'autres personnages - des CC Designs cette fois - de gauche à droite, Birgitta Blowing Hearts, Bouquet Birgitta, Balloon Lucy et Presents sur lesquels Birgitta est assise. Le sentiment est un tampon Magnolia.
