Ginger castle

Hi everyone!
 Did you already see the new and huge Candyworld release at Make it Crafty? There’s so much to choose from and the images are awesome! You can your own candybackgrounds or you can play with the original backgrounds. For my card today, I’ve used the Ginger Castle Digi Stamp but I cropped the image to the front part of the castle. Isn’t this fun?

I think this is just the perfect image for on a Christmascard, I love it so much! I printed the image a bit lighter and softer than black, so you don’t get the hard black lines. I also added the Christmas word chipboard and stamped the wishes word on the bottom.
Here are the Copic colours I’ve used:
  • Sky: B00, B000/ C3, C1, C0
  • grass: G28, YG09, YG06, YG03, YG00, YG11
  • orange: E08, YR07, YR04, Y38, Y35
  • pink: RV06, RV04, RV02, RV000, RV32
  • blue: B05, B02, B00
  • yellow: Y38, Y17, Y15, Y11
  • red: E29, R46, R24, R22
  • brown: E59, E37, E35, E33, E31
  • white: C3, C1, C0

Winter stella shadow box

Hi everyone!
Crafty Gal Deborah here for you today. I had the Circle Shadow Box Chipboard set laying around here for a while and I didn’t do anything with it before and now I wanted to give it a try. I went to our local craftstore and bought some white gesso and there I saw a gorgeous metallic paint. And the idea was made!

I glued the shadow box together and painted it 2 times with the white gesso then I painted 3 layers of the metallic paint, so it was nice and smooth. Believe me, it’s so much more prettier in real life, it’s so hard to make a good picture of something that’s so shiny. I also used some star snowflake chipboard and coated it whit Glossy Accents and sprinkled some glitter on it, I did the same with the Christmas word chipboard. The background is a piece of design paper.
I’ve used my Copic markers to colour Winter Stella Digi Stamp, here are the colours:
  • skin: E04, E11, E00, E000
  • hair: E31, E59, E37, E35
  • pink: R89, R39, R85, R83, R81
  • green: G28,  G46, G43, G40
  • white: C5, C3, C1, C0
  • blue: B39, B36, B34, B32

Broken Dolly

 Hi everyone!
Crafty Gal Deborah here today with a full Copic inspiration card. I wanted to create a Halloween scéne card featuring the Broken Dolly Digi Stamp. So I started to search for a suiting background that was not too detailed because the Broken  Dolly is pretty detailed and it could be too much then. I thought the Eerie Scene Digi Stamp would be a perfect match. (And it’s 25% off right now, hurry!!!) I printed the background in a soft grey, so you have a no lines effect when it’s coloured.

I wanted to colour the sky with other colours than I always do, so I played with my Copic markers in many different colours. I decided to add some trees in the background for a darker feeling.
Are you ready to see all the Copic colours I’ve used?
  • sky: V09, 17, 15, 22, BV04, 02, 00, B60, 63, 93, 91, BG78, 75, 72, 11, Y11, 00
  • moon: Y00, 11, blender, V25, V22, V20
  • pumkin: Y35, Y38, YR14, YR68, E089, E09/YG67, 63, 61
  • grass: G99, G21, G94, G85
  • trees: B39, N9, N7
  • fence: E37, 35, 33, 31
  • skin: E04, E11, E00, E000, W1, V22
  • white: C3, C1
  • red: E25, E08, R46, R24, R22
  • gold: E35, YR23, Y21, Y15
  • hair: BG11, 78, 75, 72
I just added some white colourpencil to the sky as a finishing touch.

Here are the Make it Crafty images I’ve used:
I hope you liked the full coloured card, thank you for your visit,
