Spring Bouquet

Hi everyone, Dorinda here today.
I'm totally ready for some spring flowers and this DoveArt Studios image called
is perfect.


I stamped it off with light grey ink so that i could enhance the delicacy of the flowers.
Then, I lay down an under painting with copics. BV00, YG03 and Y00
Finally, I took a few colored pencils to emphasize the line divisions; adding a bit of greyed lavender to the shadows.
Super simple and perfect for any occasion.

Hope you all have a blessed Holiday.

Hugs,
Dorinda

Thimble and Thread

It's Barbara here sharing part of a project I made using Thimble and Thread. When I cut the image out, I didn't want fussy cut around the thread but I didn't want all the white in there too.  So I decided to cut it off and thread it for real instead. I used a craft knife to cut the eye of the needle then use Baker's twine for the thread.


Here are the Copic markers I used:

YG11, 25, 63
R37, 14, 02
E31, 23, 34
T1, 3, 5, BV23

Great Horned Owl

Hi there :)

Do you struggle making cards for men? I did until I started using DoveArt Studios rubber stamps as a lot of them lend themselves to male cards just like the Great Horned Owl, so keeping it simple as I like to do I put together this card that I think is ideal for a male's birthday card. What do you think?


Great Horned Owl coloured with Copic Markers - 

Owl - E51, 53, 55, 57, BV20, 23, W7, Y15, 17. Tree - E44, 47, 49, G46.

I used Distressed Oxide ink with a sponge and a small 'grass' rubber stamp for the background. 

Until next time, have a wonderful day

Oh Christmas Tree

Hello All, Dorinda here with a little coloring.
I've used Christmas Tree from the latest DoveArt Release.
I had a blast coloring this one in no lines technique.
I used my copics to do a wash of under-color; 
then added some prisma pencil on top.
The Prismas were used specifically with a sharp point to do the pine.
I added Spica blue on the light string and a bit of shimmer on the bulbs
with glitter pen

Merry Christmas...

Hello everyone,
It's Sue here today.

(Beware, cuteness overload coming up)!

I decided it was time I made a start on Christmas cards, and as my favourite subject for these is any sort of deer, I could n't resist this beautiful image -
I coloured this gorgeous image with Copics and set it on a kraft card background sprinkled with Chunky White Embossing Enamel.
I added a die cut Christmas sentiment - the card is black glitter card but sadly it does n't really show up!
Finally I added some twine and rusty bells and fixed the design to another piece of black glitter card.
Inks used -
Copics -
Doe - E50, E51, E53, E55, E57,
Fawn - E30, E31, E34, E35, E37, E39
Ears E04, R21, R11, W00
Thank you for popping by...
Happy Creating
from Sue ...xxx
