What's your colouring medium?

Today I have two cards for you.  Both the same card but one is coloured with all Prisma and the other with Copic & Prisma for a bit of shading.  I am using Travelling Colors from Saturated Canary.  You can find the stamp HERE!

The 1st one is Copic with Prisma shading.

Travelling colorscopicCopic:  E000,300,E21,E25,E27,E35,B91,B93,B95,V000,V12,V01,G40,G43,W1,W3,W5,B0000

Prisma:  Parma Violet, Indigo Blue, Rose

The 2nd one is all Prisma pencils.

Prisma:  True Green, Parriot Green, Blue Slate, Warm Grey 20%, Warm Grey 50%, Light Cerulean Blue, Indigo Blue, Beige, Light Peach, Peach, Pink, Cool Grey 30%, Cool Grey 70%, Cream, Sienna Brown, Dark Brown, Black, Lilac, Parma Violet

I tried to keep the colours very similar.  I couldn't decide which version I liked better but I am leaning toward the vibrancy of the Copic.  What do you think?

Looking forward to your thoughts, have a wonderful day & thanks for stoppin' by!




Little Rascals - Stampavie

Did everyone make it through the freezing cold weekend....brrrr?!!!  It sure was a yucky weekend here, I'm so not a winter girl!!  I'm counting the days till's card reminds me of just that...Spring...wish it would get here already.

Kitie's Bow, CC409 & SC419

Hi Everyone,

I know it's a double post for me today.  I thought since I would be so busy tomorrow I better just get this card up tonight.  I was feeling the challenge today...the double challenge that is.  I followed the Card Sketch from Splitcoaststampers #SC419 & the Colour Challenge #CC409....yep even I like to play sometimes.  The Colour Challenge through me off a little this week as typically I stick to 2 main colours & this one was 3, so I incorporated the 3rd colour, but just a little.  They were purple, rose & light pink.  Speaking of Challenges you still have time to enter the One Crazy Stamper "Anything Goes Challenge" for a chance to win some stamps.  You can find it HERE!

I chose this image from Stampavie called Kittie's Bow the little girl is just so darling!


Kitie's Bow closeI have added Prisma to my Copic colouring on this card.  The grass and shading around the image are done with Prisma.  The balance is all Copic.

I love Stampavie stamps but I have a difficult time visually seeing the image coloured.  I'm not too sure if it's because they are clear stamps or it's just the packaging in general.  But I have to say that everytime I stamp and colour one I'm always happy with the image.

Copics:  E000,E00,E21,E35,E33,E31,E30,R81,R83,R85,R89,E23,325,Y35,G21,G24,V20,V22,V25

Prisma:  Warm Grey 30%, Limpeel, Apple Green, Cream & Blush Pink for the cheeks

Hope you enjoy & have a wonderful day!



It's Soho!!

This isn't an image I would normally choose to colour but I thought this gal was pretty.  This is Soho from Whimsy a Kenny K image.  Love that hair!  I paired the image with Retro Bottle Cap stamps & die also from Whimsy.


Copics:  E000,E00,E21,E44,E43,E42,E41,E40,BG49,BG09,BG07,T5,T3,T2,T1,T0,E35,E33,E31,E30,B12,B14

Prisma:  Blush Pink

Best Friends Luka - La La Land

Today I have a sweet image from La La Land called Best Friends Luka.  These images colour up really quick so they are perfect for a gal like me who is always in such a rush....or shall I say always trying to get to many things checked off the list for the day.  Luka holding his dog Tuffy reminds me of my son when he was a little guy holding his new puppy.



I snuck in a couple of pieces of chipboard left over from a project which was really old.  I have no idea where I got them but they were in the stash and worked perfect with this older paper from WR Memory Keepers.

Copics:  E35,E33,E31,E30,B97,B95,B93,B91,R59,R37,R27,R24,E47,E44,E43,E42,E41,E40,E21,E11,E00,E000,T5,T3,T0,B0000

Prisma for the cheeks PC1018 Pink Rose & Black Glaze Pen for the nose

Here comes the Cool Kid!!

Today I have Cool Kid by Kenny K (from Whimsy Stamps).  I am on a little mission this year to create more masculine themed cards which I always seem to struggle with.  The image on this card is cut out an instead of using foam dimensionals to pop him up I used a Wobble.  So he has some action going on which I thought perfectly suited the fact that he seems to be movin' to the groove with his Ipod.

The sentiments are computer generated and punched out with a scallop punch.  I have coloured with Copic's and done some shading with Prisma pencils.



Copics:  E000, E00, E21, E50, E31, E33, Y32, Y35, Y38, B21, B23, B24, G82, G85, N2, N5, N1

Prisma:  Blush Pink, Dark Green, Indigo Blue, Light Umber, Pumpkin Orange

Hope you enjoy today's post, have a wonderful day & thanks for stopping by!
