Hi friends! Have you had the opportunity to check out Colorado Craft Company’s new release? The new Anita Jeram Illustrations are irresistible! I’ve made a few cards to share today, and a real-time Copic coloring video. I also have a free shipping code to share: FREESHIPPINGAC, good through tomorrow night. You can find The new Anita Jeram stamps HERE.
Blog hoppers were asked this past weekend what their favorite stamp set was from the release, and Home Sweet Home seemed to be the favorite. I completely Understand why. The whimsical lines, and set characters will warm anyone’s heart. I stamped the large image from the stamp set onto Arches Cold Press Watercolor paper, and painted my scene with Daniel Smith Watercolors. I didn’t do too much detail work, keeping the card front really simple. Once I got the panel onto a card base, I decided to leave a sentiment off, and just let the scene speak for itself.
My Next two cards feature the same image from Watch This stamp set. I watercolored the scene first.
I used Arches Cold Pressed watercolor paper again, and stamped the image with Gina K Designs Chocolate Truffle Ink. I will admit, the next time I watercolor this image, I will stamp with black ink, The lines were just a little too light for the scene.
I used Daniel Smith Watercolor to paint the scene. For the background sky, I wet the paper first with clean water, and dropped Cerulean Blue paint in a few spots, and let the pigment move on its own. The ball took a couple layers, just so I could deepen my shadow. I picked Bordeaux, a stunning velvety-wine color, and love the results.
My last card was colored with Copic Markers. I tried to match the dog and ball as best as possible to the colors in the above card.
Copic Colors used: Violets- V28, V06, V05, V63; Browns- E29, E25, E23, E21; Teal- BG53, BG57; Nose- R81; Gray shadow- C6, C4, C2, C0.
I have a real-time Video of my coloring process HERE. (It’s music only, allergies got the best of me this weekend.) You can see in the video How the Copic ink sinks beautifully into the X-Press It blending card I’m coloring on. This is the only paper I use with my Copic Markers. The paper stays wet with ink, letting me blend colors easily. It takes a lot to make the colors bleed outside the lines, something that would happen to me quite often with other papers I would color on.
Thanks so much for joining me today. Now, as Anita Jeram would say, “Go create something delightful today!”
