Card & Video: Saturated Canary Feather Crown

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!

A Belated Christmas Post!

*sigh* I arrived home yesterday after spending a week with family for Christmas to find that the blog posts I scheduled before leaving had failed to post. Typical!  So bear with me, I’ll be sharing those posts over the next three days to catch up.

A belated Merry Christmas to you all.  I hope you had a fantastic time, whatever you were doing.  We spent the week in Devon, mostly tucked up indoors as it was very wet and windy!  I managed to pick up a brand new cold from someone, which I have brought home with me, so no doubt I’ll be seeing in the New Year huddled up on the sofa.

As January draws closer I’m contemplating some plans for the New Year, which I will let you in on as soon as I can.  Quixotic Paperie is currently closed while I take a break for Christmas and New Year and will reopen again shortly after New Year’s Day, probably on the 4th or 5th of January (and yes there will be some fantastic bargains to be had).

In the meantime, here’s one of those cards that should have been posted before Christmas Day!

This card was created for our newest niece, for her first Christmas, using Whimsy Stamps Santa and Teddy Portrait.

I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with a combination of ShinHan Touch Twin Markers and Copics. The designer paper is from a Graphic 45 8×8 pad. The gorgeous holly flourish is a Make it Crafty Lasercut Chipboard embellishment coloured with Twinkling H20s.

I posted some photos on Facebook during the colouring process, and here they are!

You’re The Rainbow After The Storm

Well, thank goodness it’s Friday!  I’ve finally conquered the order mountain this week and all those Sylvia Zet for SCACD Stamps pre-orders have flown off to their new homes.  Can’t wait to see what you all create with them!  I’ve got cards featuring them, lined up to share with you over the next couple of weeks.  I absolutely had to make something with each stamp, love them all!

Anyway, today I’m sharing a card featuring an image I coloured a few months ago!  I couldn’t wait to colour her up when the stamps arrived, and then the coloured image lay forgotten in a drawer, no doubt after I was distracted by something far less fun!  So, here is my card featuring the beautiful SIMPLY GORJUSS – PUDDLES OF LOVE.

I coloured her with Copic Markers.  Not entirely sure, but I think the papers are from one of the Prima 6×6 pads Thank you Kathy for reminding me – the papers are Echo Park Victoria Gardens - not sure how I forgot that one!!  The sentiment is from The Greeting Farm – Because of You sentiment set.  The yummy chipboard corners are from a Make it Crafty chipboard pack.
