Hey hey, Elaineabella here. I’ve got another fun new gnome stamp from the new release to share today, and some information on a handy colouring aid that might interest you (whatever colouring medium you use).
Caffeinated Gnome Copic Colouring Video
Watch me colour this stamp in the video below or in HD over on YouTube.
Caffeinated Gnome Card
Here’s the card I created! He’s a gnome after my own heart – I need a giant vat of tea to start the day (and periodically throughout).
Stamps used: Caffeinated Gnome (the sentiment comes in the set)
Don’t forget that you can find the entire new release in the WHAT’S NEW section on the website NOW! All 37 gorgeous stamp sets and where applicable, their coordinating dies!
A Handy Colouring Tool – LiSSA:
I don’t often colour mugs/cups, and I always sit and scratch my head a little before I start. This time I used an extremely handy little tool created by my lovely friend Kat Waskett and her husband Tim! Kat also happens to be a fan of Stamping Bella. If you haven’t come across it before, I can recommend it.
Meet LiSSA – Light Source and Shading Aid. It’s a program for Windows/MacOS that helps you to visualise where your shadows might fall depending on the light source, with a library of different character poses and objects to choose from.
If you would like to see how LiSSA works, they have videos on the page linked above or you can check out the LiSSA YouTube channel to see the program in action.
Note: I was generously gifted a copy of LiSSA, but was not required to use it or talk about it, and my opinions as always remain my own!
That’s it for today – happy colouring and crafting. MWAH!
