Copic Creations DT

We have another fun challenge for you at Copic Creations this week - colouring on paper other than white. We are sponsored by Stampavie this week so it was a pleasure to get one of  my somewhat neglected Stampavie stamps. The prize is no less that three suprise Stampavie rubber stamps.

I decided to go with a vintage look, I stamped this delightful image (A picnic of Daisies) on Kraft cardstock  with the usual Memento ink. I thought I would have to use darker colours than usual but found I didn't other than the shadows on the skin. Blending was fine, in fact not much different to colouring on normal paper other than just adding a very light touch of Copic opaque white to the hat and parts of the skin just to highlight them slightly.
The bottom two papers are Graphic 45, the script one I ripped and tore - great fun, haven't done that for a while either, then inked the edges. Digging around in my stash I found some lovely bronze corrugated card which I used for the next layer, finally the uppermost layer is form the K&Co pad Bailey. I used Gold stickles on some of the edges, the fabulous lace which I distressed with Vintage Photo ink, was sent from Singapore by my friend Rosey, I used metal corners distressed with Copics and flowers from my stash.

Here is a close up of the image.
I followed the sketch over at Fridays Sketchers and am entering this card into their challenge also and Crafty Angels, although I don't use this stamp very often she has to be one of my favourites, I just love colouring her.
Copics used
Hair  -  Y00/15/17
Skin  -  E00, YR0000, R00, R0, R02
Browns -  E31, E70/71/77
Blues    -  B00/93/95
Greens  -  G000/21/99
Opaque white for highlighting

Finally I made this little one as an experiment. I has some papers left that I had printed out and wonder how would it be to use these. I printed the image (Stampavie's Hoo-hoo-there) on the lighter, slightly patterned paper.
I use 120gms bright white smooth copier paper for printing on - I used to get this at Tesco when in the UK.
Again I used more or less the same colours as I normally would the only thing I found different was the fact blending wasn't quite so easy but I had no problem with bleeding whatsoever. I don't like this card, but I don't really like pink so I wouldn't would I?

Check out my uber-talented teamies creations, they are truly amazing and I do hope you find time to join us in this fun challenge.

Hi Heather
Wow that 1st one just blew me away, super, love those metal corners and the whole shabby look, and much nicer stamping onto the darker paper than white, whoever you send this one to will be over the moon.
The 2 little owls are funny another stunning card.

Lilian said...

Heather, I am sorry I am late. Trying to catch up with commenting :)

Your coloring is truly stunning and I love your cards!
I used Encore white pigment ink. I let it dry for a few hours... the ink was really juicy :) Then I colored not going over the lines. :)

Happy Weekend!

Cheryl said...

Heather, your card is just wonderful! When I color on Kraft it sure doesn't look like this! Such a fabulous card! Cheryl

Julie said...

Two great cards Heather, love the vintage style one. I find I can't colour on printer paper, it seems designed to grap hold of the colour - no running or bleeding so no blending either. Very impressed with your effort though.
