Devilish Donna & Alcohol Markers

Devilish Donna is one of the only Kenny K stamps that I own, all the others that I've used have been borrowed. I would like more, but still find she is a good stamp for versatility & I love trying different colours on her too. So does my daughter for that matter.
Devilish Donna & Copics.
Background sponged & stamped with  Wicked cool & Gorgeous Grunge, from Stampin' Up! 

This card was for my daughter ( Jayda's ) friend, so she coloured in the devilish Donna Stamp herself.
Then I had to make the rest of the card to match.

This card was for my sister in law who wants to die her like this (ombre red & purple).
Washi tape background.

This one was also coloured by Jayda. & again I had to make the rest of the card.

Easel Card
She looks much more angelic than devilish in these colours.

Linda's Birthday card & gift

I made this card for my friend who's a bit of a goth & likes green. I was going for a gothic-steampunk style when I made this card. Then asked my brother Toby, to make a wrist cuff as well , after I saw what he'd been tinkering with in the shed (lots of steampunk jewellery & other stuff).
I realised I'd taken this photo before I had touched up the hair, but decide not to delete it so you could see how I built up the colours to make black. I don't actually have black or cool grey copic markers, which is what is recommended  to do black hair. You can see in the picture below that I darkened the hair by adding more darker warm greys, a lot more!

I used a white gel pen to draw a spider web on the inside of the card, & a silver gel pen to write in a slightly gothic style  I seen on a calligraphy poster.

Stamp by Kenny K- "Luscious Linda" (appropriate name for the stamp),  Coloured with Copic Markers.
Other stamp sets from Stampin' Up- Clockworks & Grunge Rock.
Big Shot- Beautiful Wings Embosslits & Stripes Embossing Folder.
Dsp- News Print.

For the spider web, I just used a bone folder to press the shape of the spider web into the green card stock  then sponged over the top the matching green ink & around the edges with black ink. (Of course I made this card a while ago, now I have a spider web embossing folder, which would have been handy at the time).
I added this photo because I forgot that I changed one small thing, after someone made a comment that they didn't like  something on the card. Can you guess what it is? ... I know I shouldn't let other people influence me so easily, but after they pointed it out it bugged me... Its the black butterfly, I put it on the envelope & replaced it with a safety pin. 

This is the cuff that Toby made. I was very grateful to see that he had come up with design that I had asked for, when I had been struggling to, & I was running out of time. I guess all I really asked for was something black with a bit of red, & spider webs & spiders, with straps & buckles. I was happy with it, & so was Linda.  : )

& the back with buckles of course for adjustment & style.

Colouring with Copic's

Wow... It's been a while since I've been on this blog too.
Must remember to share more often. We all need ideas & inspiration every now & then, hey?
Most of the following projects are coloured with Copic Markers.
Devilish Donna: Jayda's birthday card. 

Tilda: Pams birthday card.

Lady Raven: Milla's birthday card.

Luscious Linda: Dannii's birthday card

Lady Raven: Latisha's birthday card (this one's inspired by Frankiestien from Monster High).

Devilish Donna: Tegan's birthday card.

30 Sucks gift box & card.

Devilish Donna: Melinda's Birthday card.
As you can see there are quite a few cards made with devilish donna, that would be because she is one of my favourites from Kenny K, and she's also the only one I own from Kenny K, aswell. I do have a few Magnolia stamps, but the rest I have just borrowed.

Shimmery Petals & Pearls

It's great if you have a couple friends that have Magnolia stamps too, then you can share the images without having to buy them all at once (because you always want more than you can afford).
I'm not sure which Tilda this stamp is, but she looks like a princess to me.
The pattern paper in the background  is BoBunny. The lace Ribbon border punch is from Stampin' Up!
& The flower are from spotlight.  

To make the flowers match the colours in the card, I used white flowers &
coloured  them with  the copic marker  I used in the dress:  RV42 Salmon Pink.
First I outlined the flower petals with the brush tip, then I coloured the whole flower in using the chisel end. This was just to add a darker edge to the petals.

Then I sprayed them with white frost shimmer paint (to add sparkle).

When the flowers dried I stuck them onto the card using mini glue dots then added a pearl .

To make the little tag, I used the hand crafted stamp from Stampin' up's Tiny Tag's set. First I coloured the little heart in with pink (Calypso Coral) marker, using the brush tipped end. 

Then coloured the words with the brush tip end of the black marker. 

Stamped it onto white card stock.

Then punch it out using the Jewelry Tag punch.

To add interest, I sponged the edges of the tag with Light pink ink (Blushing Bride), punched a hole in it, threaded some cotton through it & tied it onto the lace border. 

Of course I had coloured the Magnolia stamp with copic markers the night before I put the card together, so I never took any photo's of those steps -sorry : (
But I do remember what copic colours I used though.  

Skin: E50, E51, E53 + RV42- for blush, using the tip-to-tip technique.

Hair: Y11, E53, E50, E31 + 0- colourless blender.

Crown: W-3, W-1 + RV42- for jewels. + Spika (sparkle).

Dress, Gloves & Shoes: RV42, R00 + 0-colourless blender.

Oh & the lace ribbon border punch is in Calypso Coral, 
& the oval layer & square layer are both Taken with Teal .

Magnolia's & Copics

I've been introduced to copic markers & Magnolia stamps, which have become a bit of a side project,
(or should I say a naughty little obsession).
A card I made for my coussin Kengee, when she a baby boy.
Tatty Teddy stamp.

Just playing around with a spare that I stamped off.

This was my first card made using Magnolia stamps and copic markers. I atteneded an introduction to copic markers class at a scrapbook shop called Scrap to relax, in Drouin, where I stamped & coloured the image, then I put the card together at home.

This was the card I made at the second copic class I attended.
(They're just so much fun to colour in, & the more practice you have the better you get).

This was the first Magnolia stamp I bought. (isn't she just peachy)

Mixing tools & playing with colours here.

I made this card for a friends birthday.
(you've got to give them to someone you know will appricate the work that goes into them)
