Copic Creations - Your favourite technique!!

This week at Copic Creations we are asking you to use your favourite technique - we were intending to have our 2nd anniversary celebrations  but due to some unforseen circumstances have had to postpone it until 1st June.

Favourite techniques - now there's a problem, I don't really have one, I just like trying anything and everything, although there are certain things I find more enjoyable than others.
The fabulous Crafty Secrets are sponsoring us this week and so generously provided the DT's with stamps to work with. 
I chose 'Alice's Tea Party' and then couldn't make my mind up as to which image to use - so what did I do - use them all (well nearly) and make a set of invitations together with a box. Now as I started this shortly before I was due to leave for a couple of weeks in the UK and have only just arrived home this week I really pushed my self time-wise, consequently there are one or two finishing off  jobs I want to add.

This is the whole set

This is definitely one of the techniques I love doing, coloring on paper piecing, everything other than the jam tarts are paperpieced and shadow and depth created using E40, 41, 44 &49.

Another technique I enjoy is colouring the pleats and folds in clothing and Alice's dress is perfect for this - here I used B0000, B00, B21, 23 & 29.

Not really sure what technique is used here, but don't you just love the White Rabbit and I couldn't resist adding the watch and fob charm. 

Not quite sure where I was going with this one but ended up trying to see if I could get all the primary and secondary colours into the one image. I think I've made it - Red, Blue(trousers which look a little black) Yellow - primaries
Violet (his tie - not very visible), Green and Orange (hair).

This one has to be the monochrome colouring which I do enjoy but let's face it couldn't do much else with this image!!

This one is a mixture of colouring folds and working with the complimentary colours - red and green.

Now with this one (the Knave of Hearts) I was taking myself out of my comfort zone -  I'm not a lover of yellow and find it a rather difficult to work with so of course I had to have a go!!

Sponsoring us this time are the fabulous Crafty Secrets with a prize for the  lucky winner of some stamps of their own!!

Oh Rica, I am bowled over! I just love it when colouring has that children's storybook look and you have definitely got that here. Such delightful images and colouring to match, fab fab work.

Thanks again for the shadow box tutorial you gave the other day, I've finally had a go at it after being reminded of the technique when I was looking at angelwhispers blog yesterday. Really easy to follow your instructions and am pleased with the result. Keep up the great work.

Paula said...

What a glorious set - I think my favourite is your monochrome mouse, I do like your Knave Hearts & the tea set too, & Alice's dress - just starting to get the hang of folds & not be intimidated by them...... so it looks like they're all my favourites - what a lovely idea - here's hoping this posts & have a lovely weekend. Commenting is a bit haphazard as we keep getting disconnected.
