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! 😉

Make it Crafty Fiery Baby Dragon Card & Video - www.markergeek.com

It has been a while, but finally I have found the motivation/energy to deal with digging out and setting up my video camera! Last weekend I decided to play and shoot a little video for you which I’m sharing in today’s post. The video is a little under ten minutes long and there is no commentary, just colouring. I will be sharing more videos in future, so if you enjoy watching them make sure you subscribe!

I hope you’ll enjoy taking a little glimpse at how I coloured the sweet little dragon image from Make it Crafty. I have a card and Copic Marker Colour Palette to share as well, so read on for the fun stuff!

Card: Wicked Birthday Wishes Copic Scene Card

Make it Crafty - Haunted House & Mini MonstaBoyz Scene - www.markergeek.com

I’m a firm believer in giving spooky images the opportunity to shine for all sorts of occasions, not just Halloween. Since it was Paul’s birthday this week I decided I’d create a fun spooky scene card for him. I love to create scenes with stamps and as it had been a while since I last created one, this was a lot of fun.

I’ve added a handy Copic Colour Palette at the end of my post for you, showing the markers I used on my scene card.

Make it Crafty Tea Party Blog Hop!

It’s time for Make it Crafty to pour a round of drinks at the super special tea party celebrations!

Not only are we celebrating the magical release of Alice in Wonderland, but Make it Crafty has turned 3! All thanks to YOU, the incredible artists and the amazing Make it Crafty team!

Let’s dance around from chair to chair, sipping a drink, eating a cake, shrinking then growing with excitement as you watch the entertainment unfold before your eyes.

Be careful not to miss the hidden words as you’ll need to collect them along the way and string them all together to form a quote. Simply enter the quote at the end of the hop for a chance to win!

Hopefully you’ve found your way from BRONWEN’S BLOG, but if you’ve just skipped a chair or two you might want to start back at Zoe’s Blog.

My card features the one and only MAD HATTER! You may or may not know that the Mad Hatter is one of my very favourite characters. I love Mad Hatter images and this one definitely shot to the top of my list!

Isn’t he awesome?

I printed the image on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (available in the UK from Jackson’s Art Supplies).  I coloured the background using my markers, first colouring the whole area with the lighter shade and then drawing random circles over the top with the darker shade.

The background paper is from the Graphic 45 Olde Curiosity Shoppe 8×8 pad, which I recoloured using Lindy’s Stamp Gang Magicals – Witch’s Potion Purple.  The gear shapes were cut using a Tim Holtz Sizzix Alterations die, and coloured using a shimmering gold paint, which I also used to distress the edges of my papers.

It Ain’t Over!

Those of you who have me on your FaceBook friends list may already have seen the coloured image on today’s card.  For those of you that haven’t, a little background!  I challenged my friend Zoe from Make it Crafty to colour the Opera Singer from her recent “Entertainers” release, using the “No Lines” technique.  After realising it was a fairly tough challenge, I decided it was only fair if I also took a stab at it!

2013_06_25_mic_operasinger2

I used the digital version, but the Make it Crafty Opera Singer is available in rubber from Quixotic Paperie, along with the other fantastic Entertainers stamps. I didn’t use it on my card, but the rubber stamp comes with the perfect accompanying sentiment.

Excuse the photo – I really need to sort out my lighting (and probably go back to using my camera instead of my phone 😉 ).  The coloured image shown on the marker info pic below is more accurate as it was scanned in.

I printed the image on Make it Colour Blending Card and coloured with ShinHan Touch Twin Markers (available in the UK from Jackson’s Art Supplies).
