Dream with Mermaids

Hello Copic lovers! It's Delphine here today to share a bit of magic with a couple of adorable mermaids, some airbrushing and Copics of course! Here is what I have done...

First I stamped the text which is made of with three separate stamps from the Prima Wishes and Dreams set, then I airbrushed the background (starting with my lightest colour, then using darker colours). On another piece of paper, I stamped my two Sweet November mermaids by CC Designs, coloured them with my Copics, cut them out and put them on foam squares. I then added two Make It Crafty chipboard corners. Here is a close up and the list of all the Copics I used:

Background: B04, 06, BG02, 07, 15
Skin: E000, 00, 02, 11, 23
Tail: B41, 45, 60, 63, 66, 69
Eyes: B41, 63, BG000 
Hair: BV00, 01, 02, 04, 08 / E08, 19, 21, 95, 97, 99

I have tried a new combo for the tails and I have not done brown or black hair, for a little change! Thank you very much for your visit, have a lovely day! Hugs

Summer Days

Good morning ,

I have used two images  from the  CCDesigns Summer Days Set and  masked the image to add the picnic basket behind her.  I used the Marianne Design Stitch Circle to cut out the image.  I have also used the new Marianne Design Tinys Hearts on the right hand side and popped some gorgeous flowers from The Ribbon Girl into the centre and added the Marianne Designs Vintage Ornament 2 on both sides of the card.

The base of the card was made using a Go Kreate Die.  The gorgeous papers are by MayaDesign Spring Basics.

I added some grass using YG97, YG63, G20, G99 and YG03 and outlined the image using BG10 and blended out with BG000.

Copic Markers Used:-
Skin E11, E21, E00, E000, E0000
Hair E55, E53, E51, E50
Grass G99, YG67, YG63, YG03, G20
Basket N5, N3, N1
Blues B99, B97, B95, B93, B91
Yello Y15, Y11, Y000
Melon, R22, R20, YG67, G20

For the pure Joy of Colouring

Hello, dear Copic fans,
today, it is me, Barbara/Kreativmonster, but I do not have a card for you. 
Some days ago, Zoe from Make it Crafty showed her coloured version of "Maiden with long golden hair" and I simply knew, I had to colour her, too. Today, I needed some recreation, it is hot in my office and we have loads and loads of extra-work to do, so I decided to take my Copics and do some colouring out in the shadow on my terrace. It was just lovely and it worked, I am much more relaxed now. 
I have been asked before, how long such a colouring takes me and this time, it was two hours.
She will find a cosy place in my "Colouring-Book" and I will try to colour a smaller version to use her on a card, that will not be easy!
Copics I used:
Skin: E 50, E51, E01, E02
Hair: E53, E55, E57, E31
Dress: B91, B93, B95
Tiara: Y32, Y35
W1, W3

I hope, you find as much pleasure in colouring as I do!
Big Hugs

Darling Ballerina

Hello dear Copic Lovers,

Isn't she cute? This Darling Ballerina is a Mo Manning Image that I've coloured with my Copic Sketch Markers and added some Glitter Glue and Liquid Pearls.
It's a card for a neighbour's girl who's a super cute dancer. She is so talented... really!
And so I just created this card for her to encourage her continuing dancing, though it is meaning much training for such a little girl. She absolutely loves ballet and so I'm sure she'll see herself on this image :)... standing and watching to learn more about her passion...

Here are some more details

and that's what it looks in the end...

Copic Sketch Markers used:
R0000 / R000 / R00 / R81 / R83 / R85 / RV10
E0000 / E000 / E01 / E02 / E30 / E31 / E33
YG25 / YG67

Wish you a sunshiny day that makes you wanna dance :)

Flowers for you....

Goodmorning dear Readers,

Today I have a card for you with an image, that I have got from my friend, I don't know from with brand this is. I was looking on internet but I can't find there.
She was also difficult to color. 
Sometimes you have images that you can't see what each part is.
This is such an image.
I hope that I have colored the part in the right color.

The papers from the paper pad,  My Little Darlings "Chocolote Coverd Cherry"

The flowers I bought in the local scrapbookstore, the leaves are a Die from Marianne Design.

At the top It's a Noor! Dde, I have used half of the die and glued some pearls on it.
The tag behind the image is a Magnolia die, I stamped the swirl on the corners.
The spots in the image are filled with stickles.

And of course I have colored with Copic Markers
Skin: E000 E00 E11
Hair: E29 E47 E15 E11
Dress: E49 E25 E23 R20
Flowers and Bowl: R59 R46 R43 R30 R32
