Oh, zeroes!!


Hello everyone! I'm back to share my make for the Copic Marker Europe blog. We all love Copics for their unique, gorgeous, vivid colours but there are also some amazing light, pastel colours among the 358 colours. With that in mind, I decided to use only "zero" colours for my post - 00, 000 and 0000. 

I made a bookmark and used Paperbabe Stamps templates and stamps on it. I stamped a face and shoulder from the Profile Face Left Dinky Stamp set and drew around a hair template with a black Copic multiliner to create my image. 


For once, I did not do the background first as I usually do, but for good reasons: I knew the colours would be very light, so no risk of dragging colour into my character; I wanted a very simple smooth background (when it is a full, complicated background, it can be tricky to colour and I may miss and need to start again); and also I wanted to use the same colours as for my hair and really needed to SEE my character coloured to adjust my background.

So, I coloured the skin first, in E000 and E0000. As you can see, I left some parts uncoloured to have a few highlights and still create some depth despite the use of 2 light-coloured markers.


I then coloured the hair in Bs and RVs. I used B00, 000, 0000 from the roots and RV00, 000 for the tips. I also added a touch of C0. After the hair, I finished colouring the skin of the shoulder and coloured the lips and eyelid in RV00.


For the background, I used the same idea as for my hair, with the same 2 colours to have a nice harmony. I started at the top with RV00, then RV000, 0000. Then I started from the bottom of my bookmark going towards the middle, using B00, then B000 and B0000. I left an uncoloured white part in the middle.


As a final touch, I added silver stars in gel pen, drawing them with the help of a stencil, plus a few dots and white highlights in gel pen too.

Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
Delphine xx

Dreaming of the Sea - Glimps DT


Hello everyone! With the extreme temperatures we are having at the moment, who is not dreaming of WATER ?!? Hence my post today, featuring the ocean and one of the super cute mermaids available from the Glimps store, called Sitting Mermaid
I printed my sirene, did some fussy cutting and coloured her in Copics.

Bonjour à tous! Un peu d'eau et de fraîcheur aujourd'hui avec une adorable sirène de la boutique Glimps - Sitting Mermaid. Je l'ai imrpimée et découpée, puis mise en couleur au Copic.


Skin/ Peau: E21, 50, 51, 71
Hair/ Cheveux: BV08, V04, 06, 17
Body/ Ecailles: B04, 06, 26, 29, 69
Rock/ Rocher: W5, 7, 9

I decided to create a background for my sirene on a grey board. I used Fresco acrylic paints, applied with a sponge, for my sky and sea.

J'ai créé un fond sur un carton avec des peintures acryliques Fresco, appliquées à l'éponge, pour faire le ciel et la mer.


To add more interest to the background, I drew some land, palm trees and birds using Pitt pens. I also added touches of white to the sea with a Gelly Roll pen.

Pour agrémenter un peu le fond, j'ai dessiné des palmiers et des oiseaux au feutre Pitt. J'ai aussi ajouté quleques touches de blanc à la mer avec un stylo gel Gelly Roll.


I then glued my sirene to my sirene to the background - and here is the little scene:

J'ai ensuite collé ma sirène sur mon fond - voici la petite scène finale:


Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
Merci de votre visite et bonne journée! Bises,

Art Journal Page for Tiddly Inks Challenge


Bonjour à tous! Nouveau challenge chez Tiddly Inks and le thème est SOUS/DANS LA MER! 

Hello everyone! I'm back with our new challenge at Tiddly Inks and this time it's UNDER THE SEA! You can see lots of inspiration on our challenge blog HERE :)

J'ai décidé de créer une page sur le thème marin - avec des sirènes - dans mon journal, ça faisait longtemps - et ça fait beaucoup de bien!! J'ai utilisé des tampons du set Mini Mermaid Fun, disponibles aussi en digis sous les noms Amy and Her Mini Mermaid Friends et Octopi My Heart :)

I decided to create an art journal page, it has been a long time and it felt soooo good to dive into my journal! I used stamps from the Mini Mermaid Fun stamp set, also available as digis in Amy and Her Mini Mermaid Friends and Octopi My Heart :)


Colouring: Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card and acrylic paint, gel pen on Moleskine journal

J'ai créé le fond avec de l'acrylique principalement - Fresco et Distress Paint - et fait le sable avec du papier imprimé collé et recouvert d'acrylique aussi. J'ai ajouté un rocher au marqueur acrylique et des algues au stylo gel Pentel. J'ai tamponné, découpé et colorié tous mes personnages au Copic avec quelques touches de crayon Polychromos et je les ai ajoutés à ma scène. 

I created the background in acrylics mostly - Fresco Paint and Distress Paint - and I used DPs for the sand which I covered in acrylics too. I added a rock using acrylic markers and weeds using Pentel gel pens. I stamped, fussy cut and coloured all my elements in Copics with a few touches of Polychromos and I added them to my scene.




Rejoignez-nous avec toutes vos créations maritimes ;)! Merci de votre visite et bonne journée! Bises,

We hope you will join us for this challenge! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,
Delphine xx
