Skin challenge!

Hi everyone!

There's a skin challenge at Copic marker Europe and here's my card that I made for it.

I used the digital stamp "Double Eyelashes" by The East Wind. You can see there's a lot of skin on this image. I really enjoy colouring skin. My tip for you is try to keep your nibs clean and refill your markers often. You will see the skin colours are blending very smooth.

Here are the colours I've used:
skin: E13, E11, E00, E000
hair: E59, E37, E35, E33, E31
eyeshadow: E79, E77, E74, E71
red: R59, R46, R24, R22
pink: RV17, RV55, RV52
green: G28, G24, G21

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!!

If you're new to KKS, you're in for a fabulous TREAT!!

Welcome to a week of SPOOK-TACULAR designs featuring our NEW August Release stamp sets!!!
We have absolutely incredible creations ready to share with you,

FANG-TASTIC sets from artist Annie Rodrigue!
I'm sure you'll agree that these two ghoulfriends are bloody amazing!!

Each set comes with a stunning new vampire image plus 5 or 6 coordinating sentiments!!

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. 

I coloured the vampire with my Copic markers, here are the colours:

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!
