Rain, Rain Go Away (seriously)

Hi everyone. We have had days and days of rain, cold, drizzle, more rain and more cold.  YUCK.  I miss the sun!  I no longer even care about the temperature. I just want to see that bright light!  Maybe today. It would be a perfect gift.  :)

Stamping Bella Uptown Girl Lolly and her Brolly

Today I colored a super-duper cute rainy day image from Stamping Bella, Uptown Girl Lolly and her Brolly.

She was stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card and colored with Copic markers. After coloring, I added a dotted pattern to the umbrella, coat and boots using a Kirarina Wink Dandelion pen. On the little snail I added dots using a Kirarina Wink White Pearl pen.  I used Red Lollies (swirly embellishments) from Queen & Company (seven more fun colors HERE) and Graphic Grid patterned paper from MFT.

Lovey Gnomes (stamping bella)

Hello, everyone. TGIF.  :)  This week with Stamping Bella the team is using images from the latest release. I chose Lovey Gnomes.

Stamping Bella Lovey Gnomes

How cute are their hats, entwined to form a heart at the top! I stamped onto X-Press It Blending Card then colored with Copic markers.

Stamping Bella Lovey Gnomes (close-up)

Copic markers – E000, E00, E01, E07, E08, E09, E11, E33, E35, E37, G03, G05, G07, G09, G28, R01, W00, W1, W2, W3, W4, YR14, YR18, YR21, YR23, Wine Multiliner, Kirarina Wink Dandelion

I used a Wine Copic Multiliner to dot in a few freckles on the girl and added a pattern of dots to her dress using a Kirarina Wink pen. These opaque pens are fabulous for adding detail over colored images. I use the White Pearl most often but here I used Dandelion.

Around the image, I adhered a few Tiny Hearts.

Life is a Balance (stamping bella)

TGIF everyone. I honestly don’t know how it is Friday again already. Time is flying by. This week the Stamping Bella team is designing with the Stuffies category. I chose Leo the Balancing Stuffie. I love the little lion, and the sentiment is spot on for me right now as my oldest is receiving college acceptances and it’s hitting me like a ton of bricks. (I need the Frozen song stuck in my head for the next six months. Let it go, let it go….)  haha.

Stamping Bella Leo the Balancing Stuffie

After stamping Leo onto X-Press It Blending Card, I colored with Copic markers. The sentiment was stamped in black and blue using my MISTI. (Best stamping tool ever.)

Stamping Bella Leo the Balancing Stuffie (close-up)

Copic markers – BG13, BG18, BG70, BG72 (custom mix), E30, E31, E33, E35, E37, G24, R01, R29, R39, W00, W1, W2, Y21, YR14, YR16, YR18, YR24

To finish my card, I added a few enamel dots then layered atop MFT’s Graphic Grid patterned paper.

Warm (zodiac) Wishes

Hi everyone. Today I’m sharing a card I created using Stamping Bella‘s Uptown Zodiac Girl Leo.

Stamping Bella Uptown Zodiac Girl Leo

When coloring fur, I like to use dots to create texture, applying darker hues and closer density in shadow areas. It actually comes together quite quickly since there is basically no blending.  :)  Markers used are noted beneath the close-up photo below.

Stamping Bella Uptown Zodiac Girl Leo (close-up)

Copic markers – E00, E01, E11, E31, E33, E35, E37, R01, WOO, W1, W2, W3, Y21

I used a sentiment from Holiday Sentiments, stamped in dark brown ink, and added a sprinkling of Snowflake Confetti.

Thanks for stopping in today!  :)
