Copic Marker Europe: It's a man's world!

Hi everyone!

Deborah here today with the new challenge for the Copic Marker Europe blog.

First, I would like to thank you for the beautiful entries last time, it was a pleasure to take a look at them!
The winner will be announced on friday, December 26.

Our new challenge is called:
"It's a man's world"
So create a card for a boy or a man with your fabulous Copic Markers.

And here is my inspiration for you:

My boyfriend had his birthday this month, so I had to make a special card for him. We bought a new house last year and we had to rebuild it. Every free hour he was busy with working on the house. I'm so proud on him!  

The image is "Mr Fixit" by Mo Manning, her boysstamps are amazing!! The paper is from an old collection of BasicGrey "Bowties".  I've addes some die-cuts from Memorybox and some screw-brads. I've kept it very simple.

Here are the colours that I've used on this one:
Skin: E13, E11, E00, E000, R20
Hair: E35, E33, E50
Green: G28, YG67, YG17, YG13, YG11
Blue trousers: W7, B37, B34, B32
Warm grey: N9, W7, W5, W3, W1
Cold grey: C7, C5, C3, C1

Orange: YR07, YR04, Y17
Red: R59, R37, R35, R32
Brow: E37, E35, E33, E31
Background: E43, E41

So now, it's your turn! Show us your work, and you can win
3 sketch markers of your choice.

Winter Fairy

Hallo iedereen!

Zijn jullie al volledig klaar met jullie kerstkaarten? Misschien nog eentje voor iemand waar je niet direct aan gedacht had?
Vandaag ben ik er nog eens met een kerstkaartje, mijn allerlaatste, beloofd! ;-)
Na deze post is voor mij het kerstkaarten hoofdstuk voor enkele maanden afgesloten, en dat is toch altijd weer een verademing.

Deze keer heb ik gekozen voor een winter fairy van Mo Manning. Deze lag ook al 2 jaar ongeopend in mijn kast, ik moest me schamen...
Dus hier is ze dan!

Ik heb het super leuke papier gebruikt van Marianne Design "Winter Pastels". Ik  vind de zachte kleurtjes helemaal fantastisch en voor degene die me al een beetje kennen, blauwgroen en roze zijn mijn meest favoriete kleurtjes! 
Het is een vrij grote stempel, dus veel plaats was er niet meer over op de kaart, maar zo heb ik het graag.
Het is een kaart van 15 x 15 cm, waarop ik 2 stukken designpapier heb gemat. Het afdrukje is ook verhoogd gemat en ook verhoogd op de kaart gekleefd. Enkele bloemen, een dubbele strik en wat pareltjes maken het geheel weer helemaal af.

Dan de kleurtjes die ik hiervoor heb gebruikt:
huid: E13, E11, E00, E000, R32, R20
haar: E37, E35, E33, E31, E50
roze rokje: R85, R83, R80, RV10
vleugels en blauw broekje: B05, B02, B00, B000
sneeuw: C3, C1
bont: W5, W3, W1
achtergrond: B00, B000, B0000

Nu wil ik jullie vooral nog hele fijne feesten toewensen! Maak er een leuke en gezellige tijd van!
Vrolijk kerstfeest en een gelukkig nieuwjaar!!!

Wonderful Wednesday: Rock star!

Hi everyone! 

Today I'm the hostess for the new Wonderful Wednesday challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
 I've made this card with the amazing new stamp "Rock Star" by our fabulous artist Annie Rodrigue. She does remind me to my niece, who is a singer in a rockband and alone. I finally found the perfect stamp for her!

The paperpad is from MME "Just sayin'". I've used a die from Noor! Design and the leaves die is from Marianne Design. 

I've added some stickles to the star on her face, her shoes and her blouse.

Thank you for stopping by!

KKS: Every time it snows, it's magic!

Hi everyone!

Today we have a brand new challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.
Jenny is the hostess this time and her challenge is "Tag, you're it"
So make a tag or something with a tag in it.
I made a card with a tag in it, I really needed more winter cards! 

I've used the new "Snowball Fairy" from Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps for this card with the beautiful Doodlebug papers "Frosty friends". 
I love the colours on the papers! I've used a die from Spellbinders "Floral oval" and the leaves are a die from Marianne Design. If you get the leaves out of the die, they are curled! I just love that effect on it.

After I coloured the fairy, I've added some blue glitter on the stars!

Did you know that I've made a tutorial how I do my sky with clouds like this?
You can find it HERE

Are you crazy for tags or cards with tags, join our challenge at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Vrolijk kerstfeest!

Hallo iedereen,

Het is alweer december, wat vliegt de tijd toch! 
Ook ik had nog enkele kerstkaarten nodig, ik ben dus maar aan de slag gegaan.
Ik had een stempelset met sneeuwmannen 2 jaar geleden gekocht en ik had er nog nooit iets mee gedaan. Nu heb ik toch al 1 pakje van de 3 open gedaan, haha. Ooit geraak ik er wel! 

Het Doodlebug designpapier mocht absoluut niet ontbreken, want dat is momenteel mijn favoriet winters blokje! Ik hou van die prachtige, felle kleuren! 
Het is deze keer een kaart geworden van 14x14 cm. Voor het onderste deel heb ik een ander design gekozen dan het bovenste. Zo komen alle kleuren voor in de kaart.  Enkele stansjes, een strik en een bloem konden volgens mij niet ontbreken. De parels en tekststempel maakt het geheel helemaal af!

Copic kleuren die ik gebruikt heb:
- sneeuwman en sneeuw op de grond: C3, C1, C0
- sjaal: BG49, BG18, BG13, BG11, BG10
- muts en handschoenen: B18, B16, B14, B12
- paraplu: V09, V06, V04, V000
- wortel: YR07, YR04, Y17
- bont: W3, W1
- lucht: B00, B000, B0000

De sneeuw die aan het vallen is, heb ik gekleurd met de Molotow marker, zo kun je makkelijker de lucht kleuren en hoef je niet rond de sneeuwvlokjes te gaan.
Voor de sneeuw op de grond heb ik hoopjes gecreëerd, zo komt het meer tot zijn recht.

Tot de volgende!
