Howdy, crafters! I’m back with yet another coloring project using my Copic Markers on kraft paper. It’s such a fun and rewarding technique, I can’t get enough of it. And of course I made a coloring tutorial video for you as well:
It’s time to stretch our supplies again! Yeah, I felt like thinking outside of the box again. Sometimes that happens just by accident, sometimes I need to stare at my crafting supplies for half an hour before I suddenly spark an idea (and sometimes nothing happens, which is the perfect excuse to cheer myself up with chocolate). For this card, the inspiration came suddenly and I am so pleased about how it turned out!
I actually used a fall themed stamp set by CAS-ual Fridays, specifically the big leaf. I figured it’s such a general shape, why not turn the leaf into flower petals? In the stamp set, you get the leaf outline and the solid image. I started by stamping the solid image on my card base using ME Orangeade ink, then I stamped the outline using the same ink and cut it out using the matching die. You can easily cut this one by hand, though.
Howdy, crafters! Today I have layers for you. And patterned paper! Gasp! Yes, I know! Me, the one who loves to look at patterned paper but is way too scared to use it. I kind of did chicken out by embossing a Wplus9 die on my card base instead of adding another layer of paper, though 🙂
The fox was colored with Carbothello Chalk pastels, which are a bit difficult to use in smaller areas, but if you have a paper stump, you can blend colors out quite easily. I added a few white dots, just for interest, and now my fox looks sort of like a mushroom, lol.
I kept the rest of the card as simple as I could so the focus would remain on the fox and the kite. For good measure, I added a few sequins for additional sparkle and shine, too.
Thank you for stopping by today! Have a great weekend!
