You are the best there is...

♥ Hi there dear Copic lovers 

Åsa here today with some colouring inspiration.

For this card I have used papers från Bildmålarna and distressed all the edges with Walnut Stain. Around the image I have distressed with Tea Dye and stamped with different Tim Holtz stamps around the motif.
The sentiment says "You are the best there is" in Swedish.

The wonderful image is from Saturated Canary and is colored with the following Copics:

Skin: E11-21-00-000-R11
Hair: E49-59-57-55-53-51

A christmas tree

Hello everyone!
This is Kathrin again with a new creation to share with you. And yes, Christmas is coming close so I am sharing a christmas card with you...

On this card you can see one of the brand new christmas stamps by Whiff Of Joy. "Henry with Tree" is the name of it. 

I went with greens and turquoise tones for this card, they go great with the grey I used for the mouse.
The snow just got a hint of BG10 and BG000 in the darkest areas and was covered with Stickles after coloring.

The star got some silver Stickles for the sparkle that a star on a christmas tree needs.

I used some Vellum for the snowflakes and some silver cardstock to mat the image and papers. I also found some silver lace in my stash which was just the perfect addition.

Coloring was done with these Copics:

Mouse: W7, W5, W3, W1, W00, R20, R000
Coat and tree: G94, YG99, YG63, G43, G40
Scarf/Hat/Gloves: BG57, BG53, BG10, BG0000
C5, C1, C00
Snow: BG10, BG000
Shadow: B91

Have a great day!

Life is beautiful

Goodmorning dear readers,

Today I have played with Copic Refills and my Airbrush system.
I hope you like the result.

You need:

A Craftsheet
Glossy Paper
Your fav Refill combo I have used FY1 YR24 G46 G28 G24 Y38.
Your fav Markers I have used YR24 G85 E25 G24
Stamps and Pigment Ink
A piece of scrappaper
Cicle mal

Drop a few drops of the Refill ink on your craftsheet. Spray with the Activator over the ink.
Take your Glossy paper en pull them trough the ink.
If the ink dries you can activate it with activator again and bring your paper again through the ink.
Repeat this, still you're satisfied.

Take your piece of scrappaper and rip the edge so you have mountains.
Use this as a mask to airbrush mountains. With the cirle mask you airbrush the sun in yellow colors.

If your are satisfied with the result you can stamp now over the image. Use pigment inkt for glossypaper. Archival ink is a good option. But realize all kinds of ink can react on the copic ink so you have to heat set the ink.

Glue your card on a black piece of cardstock and then on your basic card.

I hope that I have inspired you with my card.

Sweet Berry

Hello dear Copic friends,
It’s Cinzia here  today to share with you another card I made for Copic Marker Europe blog.
Today I prepare a Christmas card, it’s only October but there are so many craft things to prepare for this event that I think it’s time to start with them.
For my card I chose an image by Sylvia Zet called “Berry”, as usual very very  cute and sweet, perfect for a Xmas card, and decided to use my favourite colour combo at the moment:  the light purple and pink, using the copics V 91,93, 95 and the R81,83,85.

The  image is a digi from Sylvia Zet called “Berry”, the papers  are by Magnolia so as the sentiment, the dies are by Spellbinder ”Floral Oval” and “Label  Eight”  .

Here is a close up of the colored image:

And  a close up of the embellishments:


Copic  Markers:

Skin: E0000, R000, R00, E11, R20
Hair:  E70, E71, E74

A lovely Christmas Angel and a little tutorial :)

Good Morning and happy Sunday everybody, Copic lovers!
Me again, Franz, with a new Copic colouring project and a little tutorial :)
 I've a lovely image from the Crafty Sentiment Designs to share, it's a veeeery sweet one and just perfect for the incoming Christmas!
I love no traditional colours for Christmas and I couldn't resist to the latest papers from Maja Design, so I have a violet-purple Christmas card!
The background and some touches of the dress are made with Prismacolor Pencils
Here is a little step by step to share with you all how I coloured her hair:
The markers you need are: E11, E13, E15, E18, E29
I generally divide the hair in small areas and colour them one at a time.
Start with E13 in the darkest areas making quick light-handed strokes following the shape of the hair; use a quite light colour to define where you want the strokes:

Then use a little darker colour, E15, for the same strokes, but make them just a little shorter:

Now simply continue the same lines with E13 again; narrow only the tips of the darker lines! 

Add some new darker strokes with E18:

continue them with E15:

and soften the tips again with E13:

Now  add some E11 to the darkest part of the lightest areas (it means near the darkest zone of the hair):

Finally add some E00 to the lightest part of the lightest areas (it genereally means on the centre of the zone that we are colouring):

Make the same with the other side:
Here I also added some touches of E29 on the darkest areas to give some more depth.
same tecnique with the other areas.
I hope this little tutorial can help, the only thing you have to practice is thin lines;
you will need a little bit of patience, but the result will pay you back!
Here is the complete list of Copic markers I've used:

 E0000-E000-E00-E11+R20 for cheecks;

Dress and Shoes:
RV91-RV93-RV95 + some touches of Prismacolor Pencils; 

Thanks for stopping by,

Miss You

Hello Copic Lovers,

What a pleasure to have you back here today! Want to thank you for all the lovely comments you allways leave arround. I really appreciate to share our COPIC LOVE with you here on the Blog. Today I'd like to share my little passion of pink... showing up in a little card I've created using Dressy Mae (Digi-Stamp by Some Odd Girl).
 One of my favourite colour combinations is pink with egg shell and brown tones.
Therefore I love to mix up my copics as well. Hope it shows up on below pic, so you can see what I mean... first I colour in pink tones (here it's her skirt) and let it dry. When it's dry I go over the entire pink part of her skirt with E50 Egg Shell to give it a warm touch, that is repeating in the background design papers.
 For the shadowing of her skin I set first the shadow areas using E11, then slightly go over it with RV34, blend off a bit with RV31... then reuse E11 again. Then I blend this with E00 and E000. For her cheeks I've used R21 and R30. Her Eye Make Up is done with the same RV's I've used for her skirt.
 Find below all Copic Sketch Markers I've used for my coloration.

Thanks for your visit & hope to see you back soon!
Wish you a lot of pink creativity :) May the RV's be with you...
