Stephinka’s Adventures with Copics Part 2…

Just a short post to show you something that I have coloured for the TTC11 Touch Twin Marker Challenge. My first card for the challenge can be viewed here.

On a similar card base I coloured the same cat stamp from the same Market Street Stamps Cool Cats set.

Please excuse the poor colouring, I’m still very very new to using my Copics!

And that’s all for my post… I’m falling asleep at the keyboard LOL. If you have any tips/tricks about colouring with Copics please comment and share! Goodnight! xxStephinka

Stephinka’s Adventures with Copics…. Part 1

I’ve recently nosedived into the world of Copics and boy, is it expensive to start out on?!

I haven’t had much luck colouring on regular cardstock at all, even with the Memento ink; the Copic inks just tend to bleed out of the lines! Anyway, while I was at the art store buying my first Copics, I also picked up a specially-for-Copics drawing paper. It is very lightweight but it stays true to its claim that it does not bleed.

The challenge I have coloured something for is the TTC11 Touch Twin Marker Challenge:

These Touch Twin markers look like Copics but are more inexpensive. Since most people don’t own any (yet) and I would like to win this and try some for myself, I made myself do some some colouring in order to enter something into the challenge. I coloured a Market Street Cool Cats cat stamp as a ginger cat! Never mind I’m not fab enough yet to colour in some stripes LOL, and please excuse me, this is pretty much around the 7-8th thing that I’ve coloured with Copics:

Not much depth… I am going to need more of those YRs,,, LOL

Thanks for checking out my blog and if you have any tutorials or tips to share, and if you know how to colour on normal cardstock, please tell me in the comments! xx Stephinka

Market Street Stamps: Paint the Town Color Challenge II + Moxie Fab World Punches Challenge

Here is my second card for the Market Street Stamps Paint the Town Color Challenge. To see the first card click here.

As I only own a few MSS and only in backgrounds, I decided to get a little creative with the use of those that I do own… More MSS with other images are on the way to me but while waiting… Here is how I used the Honeycomb stamp. By using my Fiskars stamp press and pressing down where ever it will ink up on the card on something with already lots of layered circles!

I’m also entering this into the Moxie Fab World Punches Challenge here.

Market Street Stamps: Paint the Town Color Challenge I and Happy Chinese New Year!

Hi everyone and a Happy Chinese New Year! It is the first day of the new year according to the Lunar calendar!

Here is my card for the Market Street Stamps Paint the Town Color Challenge.

As I only own a few MSS and only in backgrounds, I decided to get a little creative and ink up by dabbing only certain portions of the sheet of stamp with Versamark and then pressing on to my card at random areas:

Love, Love, Love is All You Need

Hey again guys! So I had a pretty rough night of sleep and got up at 5am. My sleep is so erratic these days and I really haven’t been feeling too well as a result. But I figured since I couldn’t sleep, I was going to make a card. Yeah… I’ve gone a bit nutty! Once again, please excuse the indoor lighting… As I said, it’s 5am and there is no natural light! Bah!!!

A little foam tape to make the little rose from Papertrey Ink’s Rosie Posie set pop off the page and give a little dimension! 🙂 The kraft is stamped with Market Street Stamps Honeycomb background stamp.
