Easter Thank You Card

|

My favourite thing to do is mix and match my stamp sets. This is what I believe gives them versatility and you helps you get the most use from them.


Today I used Lawn Fawns' Chirpy-Chirp-Chirp and MFT Adorable Elephants to create this Easter thank you card. I did some fairly basic Copic colouring. The only 'tricky' part was making my egg pile using some masking. You need to stamp the eggs you want in the fore-ground first then mask them and the rest will look like they are in the background.


Hope you enjoyed this colourful card and have a great day!!

Bright Copic Colouring | 30 Day Colouring Challenge

|

This card is a product of all my colouring for the 30 Day Colouring Challenge hosted by The Daily Marker.  I took my time and coloured maybe one bird a day which may seem slow but life is busy. Also the point of the challenge is not to make a masterpiece everyday, it is to take even a few minutes for yourself to relax and do something you love. So I consider this a success for me. There is even still time to join in for the month of March.


These images are from MFT Stamps Polynesian Paradise, another of my favourites. I googled Toucans and Parrots and found some photos that really stood out to me and tried to emulate the bright colours.

Blending bright colours together with Copic markers can be pretty tricky. The brighter colours want to pick up the colour of the darker shades. So being careful and methodical was my best bet here, laying down the light colours first and keeping a light hand with my darker shades. 

Warm wishes and sunny smiles to all of you!!



You Light My Torch Card

|

I recently made a card using this same design and it was a huge hit! 

While the previous one was a 5 minute card (or even less) this one has ink blending which could take more time.

I am in love with this Love Layers die from Concord & 9th. It is so simple but just beautiful. I've been dying to pull out my Polynesian stamp sets from MFT Stamps lately and had this great idea.


Using a rich green colour and insetting the the lit torch would make it look like you are looking through the lush greenery.

There is no fancy stamping, just simple ink blending. If you have not tried Bristol Smooth paper yet for this, you don't know what you are missing. This literally took me 2 minutes when before I might of even scrapped it multiple times before being satisfied.

I stamped my torch and quickly coloured it with my Zigs.

This one is more like a 10 minute card, but still has huge impact for such a simple design.
Thanks for joining me today and have an awesome weekend!
