Trouwen en afscheid van het Colourstock blog

Hallo allemaal!

Helaas is dit mijn allerlaatste blogpost voor het team Colourstock, er worden hervormingen van het team doorgevoerd, waardoor het team moet afslanken.
Ik heb de voorbije 2 jaar veel plezier gehad. Helaas komt er aan ieder mooi liedje ook een eind.

Voor iedere deur die gesloten wordt, opent er zich een nieuwe. Ik heb ook nog heel goed nieuws, maar dat kan ik jammer genoeg nog niet verklappen! Zo spannend!!!

Om in schoonheid te kunnen eindigen met Colourstock, heb ik deze keer een trouwkaart gemaakt. Een bevriend koppel gaat binnenkort in het huwelijksbootje stappen, dus moet er natuurlijk ook een gepaste kaart gemaakt worden.

Deze keer heb ik gekozen voor een digitale stempel van Tiddly Inks "Wedding Bells", ik vind die zo romantisch! De lay-out van de kaart heb ik heel eenvoudig gehouden om de gekleurde afbeelding meer te laten spreken.

De kleuren die ik hiervoor gebruikt heb:
huid: E13, E11, E00, E000, V25, V22, V20
haar bruid: E41, E43, E47, E49
haar bruidegom: E31, E33, E35, E37, E59
jurk: BV23, BV20, C1
goud:  E37, E35, YR23, Y17, Y21
maatpak: 100, N9, N7, N5, N3

De sluier heb ik afgewerkt met enkele witte stippen en vegen Molotow Acrylic marker, dit kan echt het verschil maken.

Krafty release bloghop: Valentina Vampire!!

Hi everyone!

Today we have a bloghop to celebrate the new releasee at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
All the new stamps are in the shop.

 For today I've made a card featuring Valentina Vampire, this is one of my faves from this release.
She's so much fun to colour!! 

I gave Valentine Vampire special eyes, a bit like a snake.
I wanted to create a  skintone that was a little bit grey, so I decided to shade with my V markers. Her skin doesn't look healthy.

Here are the colours that I've used:
skins: E11, E00, E000, V25, V22, V20
hair: E29, E09, YR07, YR04, Y21
purple: BV29, V09, V17, V15, V12
red: BV29, V09, V17, V15, V12
black: 100, C7, C5, C3
eyes: BV25, BV23, E59, E35, Y26, Y23
chest: E59, E37, E35, E33

Enjoy the hop!!

And here's my card featuring Vanessa.

First I sponged a yellow spot on the watercolour paper by Crafter's Companion. After that I die cutted a post it sticky note with a circle and paste it down on the "moon". Then I sponged the background with black, purple, blue and grey Distress Inks. I removed the sticky note and added some "clouds" using grey Distress Ink and a small sponge douber. I sprinkled some water over it and depped it off with some kitchenpaper. The stars I added using Copic Opaque White. 
I have a die with a few bats on it and I used it on an piece of acetate, so I created my own stencil for the black bats.

Hallo allemaal!

Onlangs was ik aan het on-line shoppen en toen zag ik dit fantastisch stempelsetje voorbij komen. Het is van Neat & Tangled en het heet "Itty Bitty Welcoming Committee". Het zijn zo'n schattige figuurtjes en ik vond deze ideaal voor babykaartjes. De spandoek die ze vasthebben is blanco en dan kan je zelf kiezen wat voor tekst je erin plaatst. Wat is er nu mooier om te verwelkomen dan een baby? 

Onlangs is een ex-collega van mij bevallen van een mooie dochter, Fenna. Dus dit kaartje gaat naar haar. Ik dacht dat ideaal zou zijn om een schudkaartje van te maken. Het schudcompartiment is opgevuld met doorzichtige platte en gewone roze pailletjes. 

Deze keer wou ik ook mijn schaduwen opbouwen met paarse tinten, ik zal dit vaker doen want ik ben best tevreden over het resultaat. Vooral in combinatie met huidskleur vind ik het super.

Dan volgen nu de Copic Marker kleurtjes die ik gebruikt heb:
huid schaapje/oortjes konijn: V22, E02, E00, E000
vacht schaapje: C5, C3, C1
vacht konijn: E59, E57, E55, E53, E51
roze spandoek: RV17, RV55, RV52, RV000
gras: G46, G43, G40

Ik wens jullie nog een fijne dag verder!

Happy Wedding!

Hi everyone!

There's a new challenge at Copic Marker Europe: Fantasy!

We have a few friends who are getting married this year and I wanted to create something different for a wedding card than usual. So I decided to make a card with the "Magical Friends" stamp set by The Greeting Farm. I think these ponies are so adorable!

I sponged the background with distress ink and heat embossed the hearts. I used my Wink Of Stella silver glitter brush to colour in the 2 hearts.

Here are the Copic colours I've used:
yellow: Y17, 15, 11, 00, V22
orange/pink hair: YR07, 04, 02, RV17, 55, 52
green: BG49, 34, G00
blue: B37, 34, 32

Een huis gekocht!

Hallo allemaal!

Mijn broer had samen met zijn vriendin al sinds januari het compromis getekend om hun huisje te kunnen kopen. Door speciale omstandigheden van de verkoper kon de akte pas in juli plaatsvinden. 
Dus na heel lang verlangen en dromen konden ze zich vorige week eindelijk de eigenaar van het huis noemen. Nu kunnen de verbouwingen van hun nieuwe stulpje beginnen!

Voor hen wou ik natuurlijk nog een leuke kaart maken om ze te feliciteren met hun aankoop. Ik heb het internet een beetje afgezocht achter een leuke stempel met een huis en ik ben dan uiteindelijk voor deze gevallen "Castle Hideaway" van Make It Crafty. Het is dan wel niet een kasteel dat ze gekocht hebben maar het is hun eigen paleis.

Toen ik de digitale stempel afgeprint had, zag ik even door de bomen het bos niet meer. Overal lijntjes en ik had precies geen moed meer om te beginnen kleuren. Ik heb dan eerst mijn B000 marker genomen en overal een aanzet gegeven waar de lucht moest komen. Daarna heb ik met mijn YG11 hetzelfde gedaan met het gras en de kruinen van de bomen en zo zag ik al heel wat beter waar ik kon beginnen met kleuren.

Hier zijn alle Copic Marker kleurnummers die ik gebruikt heb:
lucht: B02, B00, B000
kasteel: BV29, BV25, V25, V22, V20
gouden accenten van kasteel: E37, E35, YR23, Y21
boomstammen: E59, E37, E35, E31
boomkruin groot: G28, G16, G14, G12
boomkruin klein + struik: G28, YG17, YG13, YG11
stenen: C7, C5, C3, C1
gras: G28, YG09, YG06, YG03, YG11
riviertje: B99, B26, B24, B21
bloemen: Y15, YR04

Op het einde heb ik nog een vleugje Wink Of Stella gebruikt om de gouden dingen te accentueren en om het riviertje een schittering te geven. Met de witte Molotow marker heb ik tenslotte nog wat witte accentjes aan het riviertje gegeven.

Fijne dag verder!
