The Stamping Chef - Anything goes

Hi all!!

It is time for a brand new challenge at The Stamping Chef! As always our theme is Anything goes, so it's really easy to join! 

This is what I made for the challenge

I decorated a gift box with some lovely Bo Bunny Baby Bump collection papers. All edges of the papers are inked with Distress Ink Vintage photo. 
Here is the side view of the box.
The lace I used is a gift from a friend. I really like this lace, as it was self adhesive, so perfect for the lid of the box.
 The image I used is called Baby Processing, and she can be found here. I used my Copic Markers again to color her, and I used the following markers.
Skin: E000, E00, E11, E13, and E93 for blush
Hair: E81, E84, E87, E89
Shirt: BG53, BG57
Pants: R22, R24, R27
The sentiment I used is from a set from Noor Design. The flowers are a mixture of several different brands. The pearls are from my stash, as well as the ribbon I used.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it. Please pop over to The Stamping Chef and join us!

Hi all!!

I have a new tutorial to share with you today.
I would like to show you how I colored the grass under an image.

This tutorial is going to be a little different, because I made a video tutorial. This makes it easier to explain what I am doing.


Supplies:
Image from Robyn's Fetish, Red Hat Mama
Copic Markers G40, G43, G46 and G99
(You can use any 4 green markers, as long as you have a light, medium, dark and darker marker)
Green fineliner


If you click on the video, you can watch the tutorial


This was the tutorial, I hope it was all clear for you.

Now let me share the picture of my finished card.



This was it, I hope you all like it.

Tutorial Stoepje kleuren

Hallo allemaal,

Deze post heb ik geschreven voor het Copic Marker Benelux blog.

Deze keer wil ik jullie met behulp van een aantal foto's laten zien hoe je heel makkelijk een stoepje onder een stempel kan maken. Het enige wat je hiervoor nodig hebt, naast je Copic Markers, is een liniaal en een Copic Multiliner.


De stempel die ik heb gebruikt is van Saturated Canary, ze heet Pups and Me.
Als eerste teken je een lijn met je Multiliner om de achterkant van het stoepje aan te geven. Het is het mooist om dit net achter(boven) haar voeten te doen.


Ik heb gekozen voor Copic Multiliner 0,3 mm omdat de dikte hiervan ongeveer overeen komt met de dikte van de lijnen van mijn stempel.


Leg nu je liniaal schuin neer en teken een lijn. Verplaats je liniaal en teken de rest van je lijnen. Het is het mooiste om er steeds even veel afstand tussen te hebben.


Zet nu de donkerste plaatsen, dus daar waar de schaduw is, aan met C5. Ik heb bewust niet het hele stoepje gedaan, omdat ik te groot opgezet had. Ik ga nog een stuk weg snijden.


Blend je C5 uit met je C3


Als dit goed geblend is, ga je het geheel nog verder uitblenden met je C1 marker.


Als laatste blend je het geheel uit met C0. Hiermee is je stoepje klaar, maar ziet het geheel er nog wat kaal uit.


Ik heb ervoor gekozen om een grasrandje te maken. Allereerst heb ik met G99 een aantal sprietjes gemaakt


Vlakbij de G99 sprietjes, heb ik met G46 nog meer sprietjes getekend.


Als laatste heb ik het geheel opgevuld met G43 sprietjes.


Dit is het compleet gekleurde plaatje. Ik ga met Distress Ink en een sponsje de lucht nog wat bewerken.


En hier het resultaat!


Dit was het weer voor vandaag, ik hoop dat ik jullie weer wat heb kunnen leren!

Fijne zondag allemaal!

Liefs, Sandra

Simply B also generously offered some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created.

 As I said in my post yesterday, we don't celebrate Halloween in the Netherlands. That's why I only have 1 pack of Halloween papers, and thankfully they had the right colors! The papers I used are from the Basic Grey Eerie collection. All edges are inked with Distress Ink Black soot.
The image I used is called Zombie BDay Betty, and she can be found here. I used my Copic Markers to color her, and I used the following.

Hair: C5, C7, 100
Eyes and shirt: YG03, YG06, YG09
Cupcake: YR04, YR07

 The letters were from the Basic Grey Eerie sticker sheet.
The brads I used were also from the Basic Grey Eerie collection, except from the Boo! one and the large glittery black one. They were from my stash.
To finish everything off I also tied some purple ribbon and orange ribbon around my card.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it. Please pop over to Love to Create and join us!

ROBYN'S FETISH CHALLENGE #233 - HALLOWEEN CARDS

Hi all!

It is Sunday again, so I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! We are starting a brand new challenge at Robyn's Fetish today, and since we are getting closer and closer to Halloween, our theme is Halloween cards! Our sponsor for this challenge is Limited Runs, and they are offering 3 images of the winner's choice. Isn't that generous? Just click on the banner below to take a look at their shop.
LIMITED RUNS DIGITAL STAMPS

Limited Runs also generously provided some images to the DT to work with, and this is what I created.

Since we don't celebrate Halloween in the Netherlands, I didn't have a whole lot of papers to use. The paper I used is by Basic Grey, Eerie collection
The image I used is sponsored by Limited Runs, and is called Eyeball Cupcake. The image can be found here. I used my Copic Markers for the image and I used the following
Bucket: C3, C5, C7
Slimey: YG03, YG06, YG09
Eyeballs: C00, C0
Pupils: V12, V15, V17, YR04, YR07
I also used my clear Spica pen on the pupils, but it's really hard to capture that on photo.
 Because I didn't have a whole lot of Halloween stuff, I pulled out my wide orange ribbon and wrapped it around my card. I also tied a huge bow.
To completely finish off my card I used some purple rhinestones from my stash.

This was it for today, I hope you all like it, Please pop over to Robyn's Fetish and join us!

Veel geluk in jullie nieuwe woning!

Hallo Copic fans!

Dit is mijn DT project voor het Copic Marker Benelux Blog!
Deze keer laat ik jullie een kaartje zien dat ik heb gemaakt voor mijn zwager en schoonzus, omdat ze gaan verhuizen. Het zijn vrij veel foto's, en ik hoop dat jullie hierdoor een goed beeld van het totaal hebben. Uiteraard sta ik wat meer stil bij het kleurwerk en de Copics die ik heb gebruikt.

Ik heb gebruikt gemaakt van een mal van Dutch Doobadoo. Het papier wat ik heb gebruikt, komt uit een blokje van My Minds Eye

Ik heb het deurtje opengesneden aan een kant, en daar mijn tekstje achter gestempeld.

Ook het raampje heb ik open gesneden, zodat je al een klein beetje kan zien wat voor stempel ik heb gebruikt.


En dan hier eindelijk het hele plaatje! De digi die ik heb gebruikt is van Wee Stamps, ze heet Amy.
 En nog even een close-upje zodat jullie het goed kunnen zien.
De gebruikte Copic kleuren
Huid: E000, E00, E11, E13
Wangetjes: E93, E95
Haar: E13, E08, E09, E18
Oranje: YR20, YR23, YR27
Blauw: BG05, BG07, BG09
Groen: YG93, YG95, YG97

Als laatste in de punt van het dak nog wat bloemen.


Dit was het voor vandaag, ik hoop dat ik jullie weer heb kunnen inspireren.

Tot de volgende keer!

Liefs, Sandra
