Music in Copics and more


Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share a Copic make. I thought I would make a CAS card coloured in Copics and show how to enhance your Copic colouring by adding details to it using other media. 

The image I'm using is called Grooving Jasmine by Make it Crafty.


I first cropped my image in MS Word and instead of using my regular Copic paper, printed it on Canson Montval to be able to watercolour too and use other media. Please note, the watercolour paper will not react the same way Copic paper does, the ink may bleed more, the blending be less efficient, the colours may be darker too - it will all depend on the watercolour paper you choose to use. 
I coloured Grooving Jasmine completely, using the following Copics:

Skin: E000, 00, 11, 13, RV02
Hair: 100, BV04, C7, 9
Purple: V09, 15, 17
Pink: RV02, 04, T3
Blue: B95, 97, 99
Gold: Y11, 26


I then thought I would make a simple watercolour background matching my Copic colours, so I used pink and purple Zig watercolour pens. 


I then went back to work on my image using a bit of Polychromo pencils to add a bit of depth, so I mostly added black to the purple clothes and hair, and purple to her skin. I also added some white highlights with the very thin brush of my Copic Opaque White paint. I doodled a few notes in white gel pen too.

Image with added details


And lastly, to really make my image pop, I used a Make it Crafty Chipboard frame. I coloured it using Posca pens and covered the black and pink parts in stickles. I aslo added white dots to my background using a Molotow Paint Marker and changed the colour of my notes too.


That's all from me today! Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

 Hello everyone! Welcome to Day THREE of our April Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Today we are sharing a very special set, that can be used to show support to someone who has been going through difficult times. It's a beautiful scripture sentiment set by Artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen and it's called ENDURING LOVE!

I simply stamped my sentiment on Arches Paper and built my image around it. I drew a candle in Pigma Micron, taking inspiration from Joanne Fink's work which I love. I then watercoloured everything using wtc pens and added details in gel pens.

Paperbabe Stamps Blog Challenge Reminder



Hello everyone! A post today to remind you there is still time to join our SPRING Challenge at Paperbabe Stamps! You have 3 days left to enter HERE

For my spring make, I used my Whimsical Woodland sets to create a sweet spring scene:


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Whimsical Woodland Set 4 (bird) and Set 3 (hedgehog and bunny)
Colouring: Zig and Ecoline markers on Wtc Tile, gel pens and Stabilo, acrylic ink

I used a Watercolour Tile to test it and stamped the bunny and hedgehog from my Whimsical Woodland Set 3 and a bird from the Whimsical Woodland Set 4. I then created a background in watercolour using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and Ecoline Markers - tricky with this paper since the paper needs to be wet before adding marker or the lines won't go... and the paper does not take much water. I then added details in Stabilo 68, Pigma Micron and Gel Pens. 

We hope you can join us HERE! Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,
Delphine xx

Inspirational Wednesday


Hello everyone! It's Inspirational Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and my turn to share a card with you! For my make, I chose to use a very summery image, one of the fab girls from the Sandy Toes set which I love. I decided to make a one layer card (not unusual for me ;)) but did a doodled background for a change :)


Stamp: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Sandy Toes
Colouring: Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card
Other: Copic multiliners, Sakura and Pentel gel pens, Staedler Triplus, Stabilo 68

I coloured everything using Copics then added details using Copic multiliners and other pens on top of my Copic colouring. This doodled background is inspired by Joanne Fink's work which I'm a great fan of! 

Hope you like my different make for today! Thank you very much for your visit, have a fantastic dday! Hugs,

Glimps DT - Mixed Media Ariel


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing my Glimps DT make, a summery creation with an adorable mermaid - Ariel. I decided to do a bit of Mixed Media and picked a Grey Board on which I created my background.


I created the background by sponging Acrylic Fresco Paint on my board then added a bit of Liquitex acrylic inks on the edges. 


I then added a rock, seaweed and details using acrylic paint markers and Sakura and Pentel Gel Pens.


You can (maybe!) see the details a bit better on this picture :)


I coloured Ariel in Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card then did some fussy cutting.  

Skin: BV20, E000, 00, 11, RV02, W3
Hair: E49, RV55, 66, 99

Blue: B00, 04, 06, 18, 37
Flower: RV04, 55, 66, Y26


And I stuck my mermaid on my board and added a few bubbles and also covered Ariel's body in Wink of Stella. 

Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

In the woods...


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a 99% Copic scene! Because I really would like to see spring coming, I made a spring forest scene built around a Little Red Riding Hood character by Paperbabe Stamps, Mayleedee Little Red Hood.


I coloured the sky first, using B000 and B00, adding a cloud in BV20, C0, 1. I knew I wanted to add trees, but since the sky is very clear, I chose to colour it first because the colours wouldn't show.


I added trees on the left with E31, 35, 49, 59, 79 and B39, G28, YG 01, 03, 17 for the foliage. Between the trunks I put E71 and 74 to fill the space. I then added a tree on the right using the same colours for the trunk but G40, 99, YG03, 45, 63, 95 for the foliage. I then added bushes in G28, YG01, 03, 17 and distant shapes in G40, 43 and BV000, 00.


Next I coloured the grass from bottom to top in YG01, 03, 06, 17, 67.


I then coloured my character - doing the skin first, then the clothes and keeping the red and black for the end to avoid dragging dark colours with my light markers (See full list of markers used below). For a bit of depth, I added blades of grass in T7, G28, BG78 and YG17.


I could have stopped at the previous step, but thought I would add tiny details - hence the 1% non Copic! - in Gelly Roll and Pentel gel pens. 

Sky: B000, 00, BV20, C0, 1
Trees on the left: E31, 35, 49, 59, 79, B39, G28, YG 01, 03, 17
Tree on the right: E31, 35, 49, 59, 79, G40, 99, YG03, 45, 63, 95
Bushes: G28, YG01, 03, 17
Distant shapes: BV000, 00, G40, 43 
Grass: YG01, 03, 06, 17, 67
Blades of grass: BG78, G28, T7, YG17

Skin: E000, 00, 11, RV02
Hair: 100, BV04, C7, 9
Red: R35, 37, 39, T5
Purple Dress: BV00, 01, 02, 04
White Apron: T1, 3
Basket: E31, 35, 37
