My entry for Copics Colour Challenge # 4

2009-03-15-no4-dscf0375

 

I didn’t have the Yellow that was requested in the challenge, so I used the closest that I had to it……..

  • Y17 – Golden Yellow
  • V06 – Lavender
  • BG13 – Mint Green

and then added to that:

  • YE31 – Brick Beige
  • YR14 – Caramel
  • E41 Pearl White
  • C1 – Cool Grey 1
  • Sakura Silver Gelly roll for centre flowers and Crystal Art Inst Glitter with Sakura Quickie Glue Pen

I wanted to go sublte for this one, so I coloured the centres of the flowers with the Mint Green, and then did one pass of the yellow on the petals, added spots of violet to the petals, and went over again with yellow to blend it together ….. I had some of the beautiful mottled pansies in mind that are in our garden at the moment.  Then I went over the leaves and stalks with mint green, and filled in the centre with the peal white.  As usual all around the outside with cool grey 1.  The ribbon was coloured in the violet. 

I first of all just coloured the centres with the silver sakura gelly roll, but it was a bit flat, so in the end I used my fail safe of white PM pearls here and there and coloured then with the mint green – just having plain pearls and colouring always means I can co-ordinate (it works on ribbon too), and just then used the Quickie Glue pen on the few remaining centres and the ribbon on the pot – it gives gives a bit more texture.

The card blank is a tiny one from SU (I got lots of them in a goodie bag last year), and so this has given me an idea, I’m going to start doing more cards this size and then bundle them up as gifts packs in holders for Xmas.  The stamp set is SU Garden Playtime, and I’ve had it probably since last summer (bought it from Caz), and never used it.

I thought I had quite a few colours, but it’s clear that I am going to need more to keep up, and Stamp Galaxy/Toodles and Binks have been thinking about becoming Copic Distributors, so would anyone be interested in pre-ordering sets or single colours if we did?

PS:  Uggghh, I’ve just realised that the cardstock looks really blue in the picture, when it’s actually a bright peakcock green colour.

K – Monogram – UK STampers – Challenge #5

phew, managed to get my entry done last night.

This week’s was a to do a large monogram of your name.  Obviously then, mine was a “K”.  I did wonder what I’d use it for then it occured that as it’s Karen’s birthday tomorrow, I will add it to her flowers (I used the same stamps as for her card).

Supplies:

Check out the challenge over at their Cyberblog (there a link in my side bar), as there’s blog candy up for grabs, and you’ve still got a few hours to get it done.

Roses in Winter – Sympathy Card

a dear colleague at work lot her Dad whilst we were away on holiday, and this is just a quicky sympathy card using SU’s Roses in Winter set.

Actually, all apart from the Palette Noir the inks are all SU as well: Elegant Eggplant, Perfect Plum, Pale Plum, Old Olive, Certain Celery and Pretty in Pink.

Cardstock is Prism and some white textured from a pack I had on my desk.  I stamped a whole sheet of A4 with the design and the cut off as much as I needed.  I have a whole piece left to do a birthday card for my friend Karen next week too.

 

Note to self:  photograph the cards you lazy moo, they look pants scanned in (way too flat and one dimensional)

Other tools used: Ranger Cut’n’Dry Foam, SU 1 1/4 punch, SU cream note card and envelope and Scor-it board.

I just cut the flat off the notecard envie, and then cut one of the notecards in half, and trimmed a little off the side (so it would slide in nicely).

I have to say, that until I went to Caz’s Stamp Camp last in July, I’d always passed over this particular set in the catalogue. – I thought it just complete nothingness, and the sample in there too was pants – BUT, it is possibly my most favourite of the whole the current sets available here in the UK.

Another go at the UK STamper Sunday Challenge (No 4)

Supplies:

 How to:

  1. Cut the 12×12 piece of cardstock in half, and score down the middle of one of the pieces to create a 6×6 card.
  2. With Palette Noir ink stamp the leaf stem around the card.
  3. Cut a piece of the white cardstock to 4×4 and stamp the 3-step heart in the Bashful Blue, Red Magic and Palette Noir ink.
  4. Fill in some of the gaps with the small flower image using Certainly Celery ink.  Ticket Punch all four corners.
  5. Matt the white piece on to 4.5×4.5 piece of black cardstock and Ticket Punch the Corners.
  6. Then position it slightly towards the upper lefthand side of the card (but not too high).
  7. With the Wizard machine, and using the middle die, cut out a tag, and edge with the Red Magic dewdrop.
  8. Stamp “Thanks so much” in Certainly Celery on this.  I used my stamp-a-ma-jig to get the correct placement.
  9. Cut a small piece of the green gingham ribbon, and mount underneath where the flower will go.
  10. Punch a hole in the tag, and mount the flower (secured with the large brad.
  11. Add Leaf Green Pearlidoodles to the centres of the stamped flowers, and then drop it on the floor to squash them!

Just to prove I can still do arty.  Here’s the Charm to go with yesterday’s page.  I wonder now if I should have done an arty page to go with it?
