Just a first colouring of this delightful Sugar Nellie image.  She’s soooo sweet.

COPICs used:

  • RV17 – Deep Magenta
  • W5 – Warm Grey No. 5
  • C1 – Cool Grey
  • R20 – Blush
  • E00 – Skin White
  • B23 – Phthalo Blue
  • E24 – Africano
  • RV34 – Dark Pink
  • YR24 – Pale Sepia
  • Y21 – Buttercup
  • as well as white gel pen and Bronze Sakura Gelly Roll

I more often than not work by colour an image, and then see where that leads………but it’s different strokes for different folks really, and other people like to pick the main paper, card, stamp etc., and then start.

Papertake! Group 4

It was my turn to supply this month’s kit, and shame on me, I still haven’t done my own entry.

I need to get this done.  I did try, honestly I did, earlier in the month, but I mucked up two of the images before I matted them, then I kind of lost interest – bad girl.

I’ve just spent a few minutes wrapping some pressies, but it really doesn’t feel anywhere near Christmas (not that I like the season anyway).  Maybe when there a few more wrapped things, and I’ve got my birthday over with I might feel more Xmasy.

Beside the Sea Card



How to:-

  1. Make 6×6 cardblank using Scor-it board.

  2. Cut pattern paper to 5.5 x 5.5.  Punch ticket corners and run round the edge with the Perfect Pulmaria Versamagic.

  3. Place a piece of the word vellum down the left hand side, and mount onto the card.

  4. Cut a piece of Papaya Puree Medium cardstock to about 4.5 x 4.5.  Stamp with the Stampington cube in both Perfect Pulmaria and Pearlescent Purple – I used the starfish and mesh images.  Run round the edge with the Perfect Pulmaria ink, and place on the card at a jaunty angle.

  5. Cut a piece of the Sage Green Medium cardstock to about 4.5 x 4.5, and tie round a piece of cream ribbon.  Mount to the card at an opposite jaunty angle to the Papaya.

  6. With the A5 Purple Cow cutter and the fluted blade, cut a piece of white cardstock to about 3.5 x 3.5 and stamp the mermaid image with Palette Noir.  Heat set and colour in with the COPICs (I only have a limited range, and there is a list of the colours somewhere on the blog).   Add the giveaway photocorner to the top righthand side and mount on the green matt.

  7. Line the inside of the card – I stamped the starfish image on mine.  I also tend to stamp the envelope with a co-ordinating image.
