Hello there. Having some time to craft today, despite being full of cold – and boy did that kick in this afternoon! I am glad I managed to complete this card before my eyes went……
I have tried a new thing today, well , several actually, but the main thing was colouring a digi stamp. With Copics…..! I am a total beginner with Copics, a complete novice with digi stamps, and so my morning was challenging – but in a good way. This stamp is from QKR Stampede, and I fell in love with the image as soon as I saw it……….
I am really pleased how this turned out, and even I can see the dimension on the candy cane! I have been working through some colouring classes from Kit and Clowder. The videos are very informative, and just the encouragement to give a go is enough for me to – well – give it a go.
One of the most basic for me – sometimes my Copic just belches out colour…..messes your colouring completely. The answer – take the lid off the other end of the pen! That way it gets rid of the vacuum, and no more colour belching!! Wow! Who’d’a thunk!
It’s a game changer for me – yet another tool in my box. One I will keep trying, and even try some other digi stamps – but, yes, colouring still not the most enjoyable time for me……..only for short periods, before I get stamping and die cutting withdrawal!
The sentiment is from a Honey Doo set in Rockin’ Red from Catherine Pooler.
A little closer look: (in my brand new, bigger photo box! I think I’ll make some backgrounds which are more interesting)
I shall be entering the following challenges:
Watercooler Challenges – occasions
Addicted to stamps – Holiday
QKR Stampede – anything goes
The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge – anything goes Christmas
Christmas at Sweet Stamping – Christmas
Just a reminder – there is still plenty of time to play at ABC Christmas Challenge – you know it’s my first ever Design Team position – with the them of ‘A’ for anything goes, and/or ‘B’ for berries – I hope to see you there. 🙂
