April Krafty Peeks... DAY THREE




 Hello everyone! Welcome to Day THREE of our April Krafty Peeks at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps! Today we are sharing a very special set, that can be used to show support to someone who has been going through difficult times. It's a beautiful scripture sentiment set by Artist Melissa Baker-Nguyen and it's called ENDURING LOVE!


We are pleased to say that a portion of the sales from this stamp set will be donated to the Canadian Cancer Society.

When I saw these gorgeous sentiments, Bible Journaling and Doodling jumped to my mind, so here is my make for today:


Stamps: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Enduring Love
Colouring: Watercolour Zig and Ecoline Pens, Pigma Micron, Staedler, Pentel on Arches Hot Pressed

I simply stamped my sentiment on Arches Paper and built my image around it. I drew a candle in Pigma Micron, taking inspiration from Joanne Fink's work which I love. I then watercoloured everything using wtc pens and added details in gel pens.

Challenges I am entering:

Paperbabe Stamps Blog Challenge Reminder



Hello everyone! A post today to remind you there is still time to join our SPRING Challenge at Paperbabe Stamps! You have 3 days left to enter HERE

For my spring make, I used my Whimsical Woodland sets to create a sweet spring scene:


Stamps: Paperbabe Stamps Whimsical Woodland Set 4 (bird) and Set 3 (hedgehog and bunny)
Colouring: Zig and Ecoline markers on Wtc Tile, gel pens and Stabilo, acrylic ink

I used a Watercolour Tile to test it and stamped the bunny and hedgehog from my Whimsical Woodland Set 3 and a bird from the Whimsical Woodland Set 4. I then created a background in watercolour using Zig Clean Color Real Brush Pens and Ecoline Markers - tricky with this paper since the paper needs to be wet before adding marker or the lines won't go... and the paper does not take much water. I then added details in Stabilo 68, Pigma Micron and Gel Pens. 

We hope you can join us HERE! Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,
Delphine xx

Inspirational Wednesday


Hello everyone! It's Inspirational Wednesday at Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps and my turn to share a card with you! For my make, I chose to use a very summery image, one of the fab girls from the Sandy Toes set which I love. I decided to make a one layer card (not unusual for me ;)) but did a doodled background for a change :)


Stamp: Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps Sandy Toes
Colouring: Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card
Other: Copic multiliners, Sakura and Pentel gel pens, Staedler Triplus, Stabilo 68

I coloured everything using Copics then added details using Copic multiliners and other pens on top of my Copic colouring. This doodled background is inspired by Joanne Fink's work which I'm a great fan of! 

Hope you like my different make for today! Thank you very much for your visit, have a fantastic dday! Hugs,

Glimps DT - Mixed Media Ariel


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing my Glimps DT make, a summery creation with an adorable mermaid - Ariel. I decided to do a bit of Mixed Media and picked a Grey Board on which I created my background.


I created the background by sponging Acrylic Fresco Paint on my board then added a bit of Liquitex acrylic inks on the edges. 


I then added a rock, seaweed and details using acrylic paint markers and Sakura and Pentel Gel Pens.


You can (maybe!) see the details a bit better on this picture :)


I coloured Ariel in Copics on Make it Colour Blending Card then did some fussy cutting.  

Skin: BV20, E000, 00, 11, RV02, W3
Hair: E49, RV55, 66, 99
Purple: V09, 12, 15, 17
Blue: B00, 04, 06, 18, 37

And I stuck my mermaid on my board and added a few bubbles and also covered Ariel's body in Wink of Stella.

In the woods...


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing a 99% Copic scene! Because I really would like to see spring coming, I made a spring forest scene built around a Little Red Riding Hood character by Paperbabe Stamps, Mayleedee Little Red Hood.


I coloured the sky first, using B000 and B00, adding a cloud in BV20, C0, 1. I knew I wanted to add trees, but since the sky is very clear, I chose to colour it first because the colours wouldn't show.


I added trees on the left with E31, 35, 49, 59, 79 and B39, G28, YG 01, 03, 17 for the foliage. Between the trunks I put E71 and 74 to fill the space. I then added a tree on the right using the same colours for the trunk but G40, 99, YG03, 45, 63, 95 for the foliage. I then added bushes in G28, YG01, 03, 17 and distant shapes in G40, 43 and BV000, 00.


Next I coloured the grass from bottom to top in YG01, 03, 06, 17, 67.


I then coloured my character - doing the skin first, then the clothes and keeping the red and black for the end to avoid dragging dark colours with my light markers (See full list of markers used below). For a bit of depth, I added blades of grass in T7, G28, BG78 and YG17.


I could have stopped at the previous step, but thought I would add tiny details - hence the 1% non Copic! - in Gelly Roll and Pentel gel pens. 

Sky: B000, 00, BV20, C0, 1
Trees on the left: E31, 35, 49, 59, 79, B39, G28, YG 01, 03, 17
Tree on the right: E31, 35, 49, 59, 79, G40, 99, YG03, 45, 63, 95
Bushes: G28, YG01, 03, 17
Distant shapes: BV000, 00, G40, 43 
Grass: YG01, 03, 06, 17, 67
Blades of grass: BG78, G28, T7, YG17

Skin: E000, 00, 11, RV02
Hair: 100, BV04, C7, 9
Red: R35, 37, 39, T5
Purple Dress: BV00, 01, 02, 04
White Apron: T1, 3
Basket: E31, 35, 37

A Doodled Tiddly Inks


Hello everyone! I'm sharing a sweet Tiddly Inks make today - a bit special to me since it involves A LOT of doodling! The image called Wryn Waits inspired me to create a special background for her:


Image: Tiddly Inks Wryn Waits
Colouring: Mixed Media on Canson Montval

The whole background and image were watercoloured using Zig Clean Color Real Brush and Ecoline Brush Markers. I then used my Polychromos to do the hair. I doodled using Pigma Microns in different sizes and coloured and added details in Sakura gel pens, Stabilo and Staedler pens. 

Thank you very much for your visit, have a great day! Hugs,

Colouring Spring Skies Challenge at Make it Crafty


Hello everyone! Today I'm sharing my inspiration card for our current challenge at Make it Crafty - SPRING SKIES :) You can see all the details and my teamies' amazing inspiration cards HERE!

For my card, I used a digi image I love - the sweet Isabella digi - which seemed perfect for a spring card. Here is what I did with her:


I resized and cropped Isabella in MS Word to match the die I wanted to use then printed her on Make it Colour Blending Card. I die cut my image with a Lawn Fawn Die then coloured my image in Copics. I created spring hills and a spring sky in Copics too, following one of Zoe's fantastic step-by-step projects from her Fun Techniques For Colouring Skies Ebook. I added a touch of Distress Ink on the edges of my card and then added a few dots using gel pens and I wrote a sentiment in Copic multiliner.


Skin: E000, 00, 11, RV02
Hair: E25, 59, YR23
Purple: V09, 12, 15, 17
White: C0, 1, BV000, V000
Sky: B00, 02, 04, 05
Hills: YG01, 03, 06, 17, 67


Thank you very much for your visit, hope you will give spring skies a try too! Hugs,
Delphine xx
