The Latest News:
If you missed yesterday’s post you may want to take a look for details of all my Marker Geek Monday articles for Stamping Bella: Marker Geek Monday Update. There are lots of useful tips, colour combos etc. included in the posts so far, whether you’re just getting started on your colouring adventures or you’ve been colouring for a while!
As you may have gathered from all the sudden activity over here during the latest Stamping Bella release, I’m back to regular blogging! It has taken some time for me to find my feet and my creative mojo again. While I never stopped colouring, making cards, taking photos and blogging was just more than my poor cluttered brain could cope with! I have been making up for it though, and will be sharing lots of cards and colouring fun with you here over the coming months (I realise this may seem like an invitation for the universe to have some fun with me, so I’d like to state for the record that it is in fact not 😉 ).
Our little four legged weirdo is doing pretty well at the moment (touch wood, fingers crossed etc.). We’ve had plenty of ups and downs though, as diabetes is a tricky customer, particularly with her added complexities! Lots of stress, tears and long chats with the vet.
Stamping Bella Edna Needs a Martini Card:
Here’s the card I created for the latest Stamping Bella release using the fabulous new Edna Needs a Martini rubber stamp. I know Edna has been a popular lady, and I am sure that popularity will only continue to rise! I didn’t use it on today’s card, but she does come with a great sentiment (as do most of the Stamping Bella images).
I coloured a simple landscape background for Edna. Looks like she’s hovering somewhere peaceful to enjoy that martini!
I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card (my favourite for colouring with Copic and other alcohol based markers) before colouring with Copic Markers.
The patterned papers I used are a mixture of digital papers from the Carina Gardner Only Sweetness and Echo Park Petticoats & Pinstripes digital paper packs printed on cardstock using my CANON Pixma iP7250 printer *.
I used a mix of dies from the Lawn Fawn Stitched Rectangles sets and Lil Inker Designs Stitched Rounded Rectangles.
I create my own card blanks using a Fiskars High Precision Personal Paper Trimmer *, a Martha Stewart Scoring Board * and bone folder * (I don’t like the plastic scoring tools, I use a bone folder and have had mine for several years).
Copic Marker Colouring Videos:
I coloured Edna Needs a Martini a second time and filmed it! Here’s a speed colouring video giving you a nice overview of how I coloured the image. I always find it enjoyable watching other people’s speed colouring videos and I hope you enjoy this one.
Watch below or over on YouTube.
I filmed Copic marker colouring videos for all of the images in the latest Stamping Bella release. You can find all of these over on my Marker Geek Youtube Channel in my Stamping Bella Video Playlist (which includes other videos featuring Stamping Bella images including my Copic Galaxy colouring video previously seen in the blog post: Copic Galaxy Background Colouring Video).
