Adorable New Stamps from Stamping Bella

Stamping Bella - The Woodsies - Gilbert Has a Snack - www.markergeek.com

I am rather excited to share today’s post with you! Today is release day for a fantastic range of images from Stamping Bella and I have got an adorable card to show you featuring one of my new favourites.

As you may be aware I do the colouring for many of the product images on the Stamping Bella website and the new product packaging. During January I had the privilege of colouring the product images for most of the new release, so I can absolutely vouch for how much fun all the new images are to colour!

Card & Video: Make it Crafty Phoebe & Reds

Make it Crafty Phoebe's Christmas Wish Copic Marker Colour Palette - ww.markergeek.com My friend Zoe from Make it Crafty recently gave away a gorgeous Christmas digi free to newsletter subscribers. I think she may still be available, so pop on over to the Make it Crafty FB page to check out the details and sign up (it is worth subscribing on Facebook and via the newsletter so you don’t miss the freebies that Zoe generously gives away from time to time)!

As soon as I saw Phoebe’s Christmas Wish I knew I wanted to create a very simple Christmas card with her cropped to one side. Sometimes I puzzle for ages over how I want to use an image, sometimes I just know.

Keep reading to see the card and for some discussion about Copic reds, a marker palette and speed colouring video. Phew, you may want to grab a tea/coffee first! ;)

Saturated Canary - Feather Crown Card & Video - www.markergeek.com

It is no secret that I love colouring hair. It is one of my favourite things to do. That said, I am a little out of practice, so to rectify that I turned to one of my favourite stamp artists for awesome hair: Krista Smith and her fantastic Saturated Canary images.  I need to get back into my hair “groove”, so bear with me, but I filmed the colouring process so you can check out a speed colouring video. I have also provided a Copic Marker Colour Palette in the post, so read on!
