Joy to the world...

Hello Everyone!

It's Sue here today to show you how to create a really quick, simple and very pretty background with your copic markers.

You will need a stamped image, (I have used the beautiful 
Christmas Horns ), copic markers and some colourless blender in a spritzer bottle.
First I coloured the background around the image with
RV93 - it doesn't need to be too neat.
Then, the rest of the background was coloured with RV91.
Then I sprayed the entire design with colourless blender.
The colourless blender creates a lovely dotty pattern on the coloured background.  It doesn't matter that it goes on the image too as it will dry leaving you able to colour the image as usual.  Don't worry about the blender making larger blots as it looks really pretty when it is dry.  (I took the picture below while the blender was still wet so you can see the effect)

I carried on colouring the image with markers as shown - 
silver horns C0, C1, C3, C4
...bow with R35, R37, R56, R59.
...holly leaves with YG03, YG63, G85 and BG99
...frame with R35, R37, R56
Finally I added some Clear and Silver Copic Glitter pen to the horns.  This does n't show very well in the photo but it does look really sparkly!
...and here is my finished card.
This beautiful image is 
It is available in the UK from 

Thank you for popping by.
Happy Copic colouring
from Sue...xxx

...and thank you so much to you all for your support for my projects this year.
I hope you enjoy a very special holiday season.

Spring Bouquet

Hi everyone, Dorinda here today.
I'm totally ready for some spring flowers and this DoveArt Studios image called
is perfect.


I stamped it off with light grey ink so that i could enhance the delicacy of the flowers.
Then, I lay down an under painting with copics. BV00, YG03 and Y00
Finally, I took a few colored pencils to emphasize the line divisions; adding a bit of greyed lavender to the shadows.
Super simple and perfect for any occasion.

Hope you all have a blessed Holiday.

Hugs,
Dorinda

Thimble and Thread

It's Barbara here sharing part of a project I made using Thimble and Thread. When I cut the image out, I didn't want fussy cut around the thread but I didn't want all the white in there too.  So I decided to cut it off and thread it for real instead. I used a craft knife to cut the eye of the needle then use Baker's twine for the thread.


Here are the Copic markers I used:

YG11, 25, 63
R37, 14, 02
E31, 23, 34
T1, 3, 5, BV23

Great Horned Owl

Hi there :)

Do you struggle making cards for men? I did until I started using DoveArt Studios rubber stamps as a lot of them lend themselves to male cards just like the Great Horned Owl, so keeping it simple as I like to do I put together this card that I think is ideal for a male's birthday card. What do you think?


Great Horned Owl coloured with Copic Markers - 

Owl - E51, 53, 55, 57, BV20, 23, W7, Y15, 17. Tree - E44, 47, 49, G46.

I used Distressed Oxide ink with a sponge and a small 'grass' rubber stamp for the background. 

Until next time, have a wonderful day 

Andrea xx

Oh Christmas Tree

Hello All, Dorinda here with a little coloring.
I've used Christmas Tree from the latest DoveArt Release.
I had a blast coloring this one in no lines technique.
I used my copics to do a wash of under-color; 
then added some prisma pencil on top.
The Prismas were used specifically with a sharp point to do the pine.
I added Spica blue on the light string and a bit of shimmer on the bulbs
with glitter pen
