Marker Geek Monday: Copic Colouring over Distress Ink Backgrounds

Marker Geek Monday is here again! I am pretty sure my brain is still somewhere back in February, but I’ve been informed that we’re actually almost done with May. Must be all the colouring occupying my thoughts. Ha! Today I’m combining a couple of my favourite things and showing you how to create some fun and simple cards using Copics and Distress Inks together.

Hey everyone! Elaineabella here with another SPOTTED ON SUNDAY. Every Sunday I’m sharing cards and other creations that have caught my eye featuring Stamping Bella stamps.

I spotted this card a while ago on Amy’s blog and fell in love!

Stamp Set Used: Stamping Bella Tiny Townie Fairy Best Friends (coordinating Cut It Out die set also available).

Such a pretty card and you know I love scene cards, so obviously Amy’s gorgeous background colouring attracted me immediately! Thanks for letting me share, Amy.

it’s BELLARIFIC FRIDAY on SATURDAY sistahs!

Hiya sistahs!

I am so sorry I didn’t get to post this yesterday.. we were driving to Montreal to visit family for our long weekend!  But now I am here.. in our hotel room.. peace and quiet… writing and getting inspired with all of these creations!

Of course as I drove in .. I HAD to stop at my FAVORITE scrapbook store, SCRAPBOOK CENTRALE..  I am so upset I didn’t take a picture of our beautiful display of stamps (thanks Natalie!) right in front of the store.. was so proud!  If you’re ever in Montreal and want the latest and the greatest for your crafty fixes, you MUST visit this store!   Natalie also does “WHAT’s just in” the store and reveals all of the goodies she gets in that week… well I study those videos and end up calling for her to ship my fix… she will do that for you too!  I met some lovely ladies in the shop and we discussed our love of stamps, mixed media and of course the Traveller’s Notebook (Natalie carries that too!).. What an awesome hour I had with her and everyone in the shop.. waving a BIG HELLO!

Now back to my LATE bidniss.. Bellarific Friday

We had a great challenge… to use KRAFT PAPER in our project.  I LOVE WHAT I SEE!

Check these out from our baberoonis

It’s WONDERFUL WEDNESDAYS with MICHELLE SHORT- THE CARD GROTTO!

Hello everyone! Michelle here and I am delighted to be back on the blog sharing a card using the fabulous Succulent Chicks stamp set. How adorable are those chicks? I love them!

These chicks also have their own “CUT IT OUT DIES” and if purchased in a bundle, you can save 15%

 

Wonderfuil wednesdays with Michelle Short- Rubber stamp used SUCCULENT CHICKS

 

I started off my card by creating a window piece for the chicks to be behind. I then took the sentiment from the Kitty & Mousie Celebrate A Birthday stamp set and stamped this below the windows. I had to do a little bit of masking/selective stamping to get just the ‘happy birthday’ piece that I wanted, but it was very easy to do. On a separate piece of white cardstock, I stamped the Succulent Chicks so that they would be popping up behind the windows and then coloured them with Copic Markers.

I added the white image panel to an A2 yellow card base and then added the window piece on top with foam tape. It is a very simple card but I just love those adorable chicks! Thanks so much for stopping by today. I hope you have a great day!
