Spoil yourself!

Hallo lieve volgers,

Vandaag is het weer mijn beurt om jullie een kaartje te laten zien bij het Colourstock blog. 
Ik heb gekozen voor een heel leuk stempeltje van Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Ziet ze er niet lekker relaxed uit? Zie haar genieten van het zalige, warme bad vol met bubbels. 
Alhoewel ik het idee heb dat het bad iets aan de kleine kant is, haha ;-)

Voor de kleuren heb ik vooral gebruik gemaakt van de lievelingskleur (paars) van de bestemmeling. 
Mijn basiskaart was 15x15 cm maar door de border aan de linkerzijde is die nu wel wat groter uitgevallen. 
Ik heb nog 2 extra lagen motiefpapier gebruikt, zodanig dat er voldoende combinatie is met patronen en kleuren. 

Het stempelafdrukje heb ik met een ronde mal gestanst en daarna gemat op een ander stansje. 

De dame voor wie de kaart bestemd is, doet aan kantklossen. Daarom heb ik ook bij de bloemen 2 klosjes en haar eigen geklost kant erop gedaan. 

Daarna nog wat pareltjes, knoopjes en een bijpassende tekst en de kaart is klaar!

Hier nog eens een foto van de ingekleurde stempel en de kleurnummers:

Huid: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Haar: E59, E37, E35, E33, E31, E50
Paars bad en handdoek: V17, V25, V22, V20
Roze handdoek: R89, R85, R83, R81, RV10
Kraan en pootjes van het bad: C7, C5, C3, C1, 0 (blender)
Badschuim: N3, N1, 0 (blender)
Ondergrond: W5, W3, W1

Tot de volgende!

CME: No lines technique

Hi everyone,

As you maybe  know Barbara/Kreativmonster has left the Copic Marker Europe team, so someone had to take over the challenge part.
And I'm so excited to share with you that I will do that! 

Our new challenge is:

No lines technique

Here is my inspiration for you:

I made this card for the birthday of a fantastic friend.
The card base is 14 x 14 cm and the image is a stamp from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Love those classy ladies and I thought this would be perfect for this technique.

I stamped the image with Memento Desert Sand and coloured it like usual and I just used my copic multiliner to give an accent on her eyes and pupils. 
It's not difficult!

Here are the colours I've used:

skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
hair: E29, E25, E21
eyelids: E79, E77, E74, E71
eyes: B14
lips: R59, R35, R22
dress: W7, R59, R37, R35, R22
ground: W7, W5, W3
background: W41

And I did the inside too because there was no sentiment on the outside.

So, now it's your turn! Show us your work, and you can win
3 sketch markers of your choice.
Please be aware that only entries from those living in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East are possible. 

To enter visit our Challenge page and enter your link in Mr Linky
before the end of 25th November 2014.

The winner will be announced 28th of November 2014.

We are looking forward to see your creations!

Colourstock: You Color My World!

Hallo iedereen!

Vandaag is het nog eens mijn beurt om jullie een kaartje te laten zien op het Colourstockblog!
Ik heb voor deze keer een iets pikantere afbeelding gebruikt van The Stamping Chef en ingekleurd met mijn favoriete kleurtjes.

Ik heb de kaart eenvoudig gelaten, 2 lagen designpapier die gemat is en 2 cirkels gestansd. Daarop mijn uitgeknipt afdrukje. Nog een grote stirk, bloem en knoop om het helemaal af te maken. Drukker hoeft het voor mij niet te worden.

De Copic marker kleuren die ik ervoor gebruikt heb:



 Haar/ kousen:


 Haarband, broekje en topje:


Schilderspalet en borstelsteel:


Ogen/ kleur op het palet:


Groen op het palet:

Rood op palet/borstel:


Geel op palet:

Dit was het dan voor mij!
Tot de volgende!
