Paperbabe Stamps Challenge and a SALE!!


Hello everyone! There is a SALE going on this weekend at Paperbabe Stamps on the whole shop, so if you want to do a little shopping, now is a great moment ;)! You can see it all HERE!!

And today is the start of our new challenge too, with a beautiful picture to inspire you :)


As soon as I saw the picture, I knew what I was going to do - rock painting, something I have wanted to do for a while! I went for something not too complicated for a first try, using a sweet little fox from the Whimsical Woodland Set 1 ;)


I put gesso on my pebble first, then stamped my fox from the Whimsical Woodland Set 1 in Pumpkin Stazon and Sepia Archival Inks. I used acrylic paints then - mostly Fresco Paints - and added a few details in Posca Pens and a little heart from the Whimsical Woodland Set 1 too.

We hope you will join us HERE! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Tiddly Inks Fab Friday


Hello everyone! I'm back for our Fabulous Friday at Tiddly Inks, so sharing a sweet little card :) And of course, it had to be dog related hehe... Even if not with a beagle, I couldn't resist this cutie from the Dog Days set...


Stamp: Tiddly Inks Dog Days (also available as digi HERE)
Colouring: Zig and Ecoline Markers on Canson Montval

I felt like doing a bit of watercolouring and went for a very CAS card using Zig Clean Color Real Brush and Ecoline markers :)

For a lot of cuteness and inspiration, please visit the Tiddly Inks blog HERE

Thank you very much for stopping by, have a great day everyone! Hugs,

Penny Black Copic Scene


Hello everyone! I think by now you all know my love for scenes and also for Halloween, so I have decided to make a Halloween scene for my Copic Marker Europe post! For my scene, I used different Penny Black Stamps - they have super cute animals and great scenic stamps.


The little hedgehog with his balloon is from the Bewitched set. I did some fussy cutting and then coloured them in Copics. The pumpkin was done in Y17, YR04 and YR18. For the hedgehog, I used E50, 51, 53, RV02 for the "skin", C1, 3, 5 for the fur and V01, 06, 09, C5, 7, 9 for the hat. 
I also used a Penny Black die cut to create some grass. I cut my piece first, then coloured it using BG72, 75, 78, YG01, 03, 06, 09 and T7.

For the background, I used a rectangular piece of paper that I coloured using Distress Inks and a blending tool, then I stamped a Penny Black background in black ink.


Note: I used Distress Inks, but airbrushing that background would have been a great solution and a quick efficient way to do it too!

I decided to add some foliage at the bottom of my grass piece then mounted everything on a blank card base. And voilà:


Here is a close up on the scene and the recap of all the markers I used:


Pumpkin Balloon: Y17, YR04, 18.
Hedgehog: Skin - E50, 51, 53, RV02 
Fur - C1, 3, 5 
Hat - V01, 06, 09, C5, 7, 9
Grass: BG72, 75, 78, YG01, 03, 06, 09, T7


That's all from me today! I hope you feel like making Halloween scenes in Copics now too ;)! Thank you very much for stopping by, have a great day! Hugs,
