Marker Geek Monday: Holiday 2017 Colouring Videos

Hi! I’m still in the process of moving house, and thoroughly fed up with it. As a result, I haven’t had time (or the necessary mojo) to prepare anything fun for you today. Well, I say that, but I know you do love colouring videos! I’m still editing and uploading colouring videos for the Holiday 2017 release at Stamping Bella, so I thought I would share the YouTube playlist here for you to catch up with those.

You can watch the videos in the playlist below or in HD over on YouTube.

Happy stamping, colouring and creating!

Stamp It Saturday: Holiday 2017 Release Haul/Review Video

This week I’ve got a quick video for you, showing all the products from the recent Holiday 2017 release, together with card samples. I’m wishing I could be playing with the stamps and dies myself this week, but the house move is still in progress, SIGH! Apologies that there is no voice-over on this video, for some reason I am extremely croaky this week – possibly too much ranting about the issues we’ve had with the new house and moving! Anyway, I hope you still enjoy taking a closer look at all the stamps, dies and card samples!

Watch the video below or in HD over on YouTube!

All products shown in the video are available here at Stamping Bella! Make sure you keep your eyes peeled for a brand new release (the last one for 2017) coming on the 4th together with a big inventory blow-out sale!

Marker Geek Monday: Colouring Tiny Townie Rita using Coloured Pencils

Marker Geek Monday time! As promised in my recent Stamp It Saturday post, today I’m sharing a coloured pencil colouring video for my Tiny Townie Rita winter scene.

Here’s a look at the finished colouring:

Stamping Bella Marker Geek Monday Colouring Tiny Townie Rita and the Reindeer in a Winter Scene using Faber-Castell Polychromos pencils

Stamp Used: Tiny Townie Rita and the Reindeer (coordinating die also available).

Colouring Video:

You can watch me colouring the scene in the video below or in HD over on YouTube. Please excuse the fact that from time to time my hair gets in the way! This is a longer video, and I’m sorry to all of you who wish for real time videos – I have had to speed up the footage, or the video would have been 2 hours long.

TIP: Should you try colouring on a kraft/tan paper or any other different shade from the usual white, I highly recommend creating a swatch/colour chart on the same paper first. That way you can see exactly how the colours behave. For this piece I have used Strathmore Toned Tan paper.

Note: the background was created as shown in my Stamp It Saturday post, by masking using a stencil and Distress Oxide inks.

If you’d like me to cover a specific topic here, do let me know by leaving a comment, and I will see what I can do! Bear with me for the next few weeks though, as I am in the process of moving house and will be busy for a little while setting up my new craft room!
