So, Im super pumped! I signed up for my first ever colouring class by Sandy Allnock (link HERE). I have been wanting to try her marker colouring classes, but was a bit unsure as I am a Spectrum Noir girl and she uses and teaches with Copics. Well, it was no problem at all, I just chose the similar colours in my Illustrator Markers to what she was using.
This is was my first attempt at the underwater scene (I think there are like 5 different ones). There is a lot of room for improvement, but all in all I am pretty pleased 🙂
Are you joining in #thedailymarker30day challenge hosted by Kathy Rac on Instagram?? I am, all you need to do is a pic on Instagram everyday during the month of your colouring and use the hashtag above (I missed one day so far) but here are the posts I have done so far and the supply list for each.
So, I’m totally not a plan ahead card maker…I know what stamp I want to use and it just goes from there. So I knew I wanted to use the Bunny Friends Stamp by Penny Black, but that is all I knew, but, I love how this one turned out!
First I Stamped the Image using Catherine Pooler Midnight Black Ink, and then coloured using Spectrum Noir Illustrator Markers.
I trimmed the card down to make even edge widths on the side and a decent amount left blank at the top.
Who has the We R Memory Keepers Laser Square?! It is totally one of my favorite tools as my eyes never seem to see a straight line! So, I took the My Favorite Things Die-Namics Big Birthday die, lined it up, stuck it down with a little washi tape and ran it through my Gemini Junior.
Once this is done, I cut a piece of acetate to size and adhered to the back of the cut out letters using my Nuvo Medium Glue Pen (let it sit for a few seconds to become nice and tacky before you stick down the acetate.
Make a border around the back side of the letters with foam tape, and fill the enclosed are with sequins, cover over with a second piece of acetate (or white card).
Using tape runner at the top and a few pieces of foam tape at the bottom stick the card front down onto a slightly larger piece of white cardstock, voila…Happy Birthday Bunnies!!
I had a lot of fun making this card! It totally evolved and ended up nothing like I had originally planned (which is a common occurrence for me!)
I have been waiting for a while to use the Pattern Play – Circle Stamp Set from Altenew, and it was well worth the wait!
1 – I inked up the Stamp in Catherine Pooler Midnight Ink, and stamped it onto Spectrum Noir Ultra Smooth Cardstock.
2 – using versamark ink and different colours of embossing powder I stamped down solid circles in a random pattern and then heat set.
3 – I adhered the circle background onto silver glitter card using Be Creative tape, and then stuck that onto a fancy card blank.
4 – The cat is from MFT Furever Friends Stamp Set and coloured using Spectrum Noir Markers, stick this onto a circle cut from gold glitter card stock and adhere to the bottom left of the circle backdrop using foam squares.
5 – Stamp the sentiment using Hero Arts Unicorn Pigment Ink and adhere with foam squares.
6 – The final step is to Stamp the paw prints in the unicorn ink around the edge.
