Rainbow hugs!

Hi Make it Crafty friends!
Today I want you to show you a real quick card. Do you know the moment when you need a card and you don’t have any in your stash that suits? Then the chipboard layered words are amazing on those cards!

I coloured the Hugs chipboard word using my Copic markers and did it with the rainbowcolours. It’s pretty easy to blend them on the chipboard.
Here are the colours that I’ve used:
100, R24, YR04, Y15, YG03, BG23, B02, V06

The circles in the background are a stamp and I used the first, second and third stamping, so it kinds of fades.I added some sequins as a finishing touch.
Thank you for your visit, see you later!!

A galaxi smile

Hi Make it Crafty friends.
Today I made a card with only chipboard things and it was so much fun to do!
First I sponged a blue/black background with some Distress Ink on watercolourpaper. When it was dry, I splatterd a mix of Copic Opaque White and water with a hard brush. Then I embossed the Scribble Circle Stars frame with silver embossing powder.

After that I’ve painted the bottom half of the Smile chipboard word white with Copic Opaque White and I covered the smile word with silver glitters. I let it dry for a while and glued it all together on a card.

Wedding card

Hi Copic lovers!

It's Deborah here today with some colouring inspiration and a little tutorial.
If you colour white on a wedding dress with grey, it sometimes gets a dirty look. Like it's already in the laundry for 10 times 😉

And if you don't want it to be the traditional white white dress but more of a crème look, than it's the perfect tutorial for you.

first I started to map out where the darkest colours going to be with my lightest marker (E41).
Try to find the darkest places and think at every spot you colour. Is it in the front? How are the folds going? Is there falling a shadow on it?...

Then we going to darken it up with E44

Then we're going to add the deepest shadows with our darkest colour, E47

And blend things out again with E44 and E43

Now that the deepest shadows are ready, we're going to focus on the lightest parts of the dress. Try to imagine where would be the lightest  places in the dress and keep them white and add some E41 in the other places.

Blend the white part together with the créme one using E40

And this is the finished image. Now you have an ivory dress!

Here are all the colours I've used:
skin: E04, E11, E21, E00, E000
hair girl: E57, E55, E53, E51, E50
hair boy: E47, E44, E43, E50
ivory: E47, E44, E43, E41, E40
blue: N9, B39, B37, B34
red: R59, R37

Here's the finished card!

Don't forget to share all your Copic colourings in our Copic Marker Europe Facebookgroup!
