Make it Crafty Challenge!


Hello everyone! It's Delphine here today to share my card for our current challenge at Make it Crafty - ADD EXTRA DETAILS WITH A BLACK PEN. I think I went overboard with this one and decided to doodle a whole background for my image, the adorable Mila's Love Heart
. I have wanted to create that kind of cards for a while and the challenge was the perfect excuse to really try what I had in mind. So I made a doodled card, very inspired by Joanne Fink's work, which I absolutely love!


I first cropped my image in MS Word and drew a black rectangle to give me an idea of where I would stop my doodling and colouring.


I printed my image on watercolour paper and then I just doodled and doodled and doodled!! On the character, I added details to the heart and gave her a belt with hearts too. I coloured most of my image with Zig Clean Color Real Brush pens and added a few details in different gel pens.

That's all from me today! I hope you will give our challenge a try, it's fun!!! You can enter HERE! Hugs, Delphine xx

Krafty Tutorial: Copic background


Hello everyone! I'm back to share a Copic colouring tutorial, since I love focussing on images and adding backgrounds to them:)! 
The stamp I am using is one of the two characters from the adorable Tweetie Pies set by Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps.   


First draw a rectangle in a pale colour to know where to stop colouring and draw the horizon line where the sky will "stop" in B000. Also draw the number of clouds you want using the same marker.


Colour the sky using B00 and B000. 


Add texture to the clouds, using BV20 at the bottom of the clouds, then a few dots in C1 over BV20 and a few spots in C0 at the top. Also draw the top of the grass section using the lightest green you plan to use for the grass - YG01 for me here.


Colour the grass area starting at the bottom with your darkest colour and go towards the top using lighter and lighter colours. The markers I used are YG01, 03, 17, 67.


To add interest, you can add bushes in the background, here using the same colours as the grass. I draw an outline in my lightest green and then fill the bushes starting at the bottom and making dots - here with G28 then YG67.


Continue the bushes with your lightest greens - here YG17, 03, then 01.


You can also add trees the same way and even using the same colours - that's what I did here.


Next colour your character as you wish (all colours listed at the end of the post). 


To give more depth to your scene, add darker blades of grass in the foreground. I used C7, BG78, YG67 and YG17. Also add a shadow under your character (YG67).


If you want you can add details with a gel pen to suggest flowers :)
Before I go here is the whole list of markers I used to colour my scene:

Sky: B000, 00, BV20, C0, 1
Grass and trees: G28, YG01, 03, 17, 67
Blades of grass: BG78, C7, YG67, 17
Skin: E000, 00, 11
Hair: 100, BV04, C7, 9
Eyes: BG93
Dress: C7, R35, 37, 39
Bird: B91, 93, 95, 97, Y17

Thank you very much for looking, have a great day! Hugs,

Primrose in Black and White


Hello everyone! I'm back to share some Black and White inspiration! It's sometimes difficult to know which markers to buy when you start your Copic collection - there are so many to choose from! - but I think buying Grey markers is always a great investment since you can use them for shading and for monochrome images. My C markers were the ones I bought very early and I never regretted that choice, I use them a lot! 

For today's post, I have chosen an image from Make it Crafty called Primrose


With black and white, I always try to alternate between light and dark areas so that a light colour will be next to a dark area - not too many dark areas next to each other otherwise you sometimes cannot see the drawing very well. 

So first I coloured the skin, choosing my lightest colours - I used C00, 0, 1, 2. 


Next I coloured the hair with my darkest markers - 100, C5, 7, 9. I even let a very few spots white for highlights.


The flowers were done in a light colour because most of them were next to the black hair, using C1 and C4. For the leaves, I used C5, 7, 9. 
I also added touches of light grey to the banner in C00, 0, 1 - because white is never just white and needs colouring too.


I stamped a sentiment in the banner, added a little Make it Crafty mini heart chipboard and used black Bo Bunny DPs for my base. And voilà! 

Thank you very much for your visit, have a fab day! Hugs,
Delphine xx
