Spread Sunshine :)

For my card, I used a character I coloured a long time ago for a tutorial and never put on a card, so I thought it was high time I do something especially since if I look at what I did months before, I always find TONS of flaws hehe...

Happy Halloween :)


Hello everyone! I am sharing a little Halloween scene I made with my Make It Crafty images, combining 3 of them and colouring in watercolours and Copics :)

I really wanted to use the Old Oak Tree and Mini Morticia digi stamps and decided to fill the background with the Haunted Halloween House. I merged my images in Word and printed my scene on watercolour paper. I coloured the background using watercolours mostly and coloured Morticia in Copics. I added a Happy Halloween sentiment from the Bewitching set by Tiddly Inks.


Images and stamps: Make It Crafty Mini Morticia (also available from Quixotic Paperie as rubber in the Mini MonstaGalz Set), Old Oak Tree, Haunted Halloween House (also available as rubber HERE), Tiddly Inks Bewitching set (sentiment)
Colouring: Copics and watercolour on Langton

Thank you very much for your visit, have a lovely day!

Make It Crafty Vixie


Hello everyone! I'm back with some Make It Crafty inspiration today, with a card featuring an image I love, the gorgeous Vixie, in violet!


I merged Vixie and Butterfly Swing in Microsoft Word (I mirrored the swing because it felt more natural for me to have Vixie looking on the left), printed my image on Make It Colour Blending Card and coloured it with my Copics. The DPs are by Kaisercraft and the sentiment I added is by My Mind's Eye. Here is a close up on my image and the colours I used...


Skin: E000, 00, 02, 11, 23, R20
Hair: C3, 5, 7, 9, V01, 04, 06, 09
Wings: BG000, 02, 05, 07, 09, V01, 04, 06, 09
Dress: V000, 01, 04, 06, 09
Swing: E31, 55, 59, Y11, 21, 26, 28
Butterflies: V01, 04, 06, 09
Sky: BG000, BV20, C00, 0, 1, 3
 
I was in a completely violet mood, I decided she would have purple highlights in her hair too;)

Colouring Grass With Copics


Hi everyone! If you're looking for my candy, please click HERE!
Today I'm sharing a tutorial I made for my Make It Monday post at CC Designs, a tutorial on how I colour grass with Copics. The stamps I am using are CC Designs Summer Swing Birgitta and Summer Swing and the Copics used for the grass are G99, YG03, 17 and 67. You don't have to use exactly the same greens as me, you just need 3 or 4 greens that you like and that work well together.

*************************************
STEP 1
I always start by colouring at least all the parts the blades of grass will touch since the blades will be on top of them, so I always colour the sky and here the tree trunk and Birgitta's legs (and while I was at it, I decided to colour her completely :)!)


*************************************
STEP 2
With the chisel end of your marker, going from left to right or right to left, lay colour on the grass area with your lightest colour - YG03 here. You can do that quite quickly, the marker strokes will be covered later.


*************************************
STEP 3
Take your darkest colour - G99 here - and create blades of grass starting at the base of the blade and going upwards. You need to do a flicking motion from the bottom to the top and with a light touch. See how my blades are larger at the base. I have also added some G99 to the area that will be darker, under Birgitta and at the bottom of the trunk.


*************************************
STEP 4
Now create blades of grass with your YG67 doing the same movement as in Step 3 and filling some of the spaces.


*************************************
STEP 5
Use your YG17 marker and do as in step 4, filling the spaces between the blades you have already drawn and covering some.


*************************************
STEP 6
Now use your lightest colour YG03 to cover the empty spaces, still doing a flicking motion. 


Done!

And here is my CAS card...

Sky: BG0000, BV20, C00, 0, 1
Grass: G99, YG03, 17, 67
Tree: E13, 15, 19, 31, 37, 59
Skin: E000, 00, 02, 11, 23, R20
Dress and Ribbons: V000, 01, 09, 12, 15, 17
