Callista Loves to Craft Card

Today, I have a fun card featuring a stamp set called Uptown Girl Callista Loves to Craft from Stamping Bella.  This one took a while to color in, but was really fun.  I used the quote that came with the stamp as well to finish off the card.  I stamped everything in Memento Tuxedo Black ink and used my Copic markers to color in the image.  Parts of the image I used multiple markers and blended and other parts, I just used one color because the areas were very small.  I’ve listed all of the colors I used below.

Alyce & Lila Bear Card

This card was part of a challenge for a Facebook Group called Kit and Clowder.  It’s a great group and offers classes on alcohol markers and colored pencils for Skin and Hair Classes which will give you help with alcohol markers comparison charts and with colored pencils, All About Animals Class which focuses on alcohol markers and gives you the comparison charts for the different brands of markers, Clothing Class again gives you the comparison charts, and Perfecting Pencils focuses on colored pencils and goes over the different brands of colored pencils and gives you a comparison chart to work from and many other great classes to choose from.  If you’re interested in any of the classes I’ve mention, you can check them out here and there is a link to their great FB group as well from their homepage.  They are a great group of ladies with loads of talent and inspiration to offer.

The challenge for this card was a digital stamp done by YamPuff of Alyce who is the owner of Kit and Clowder and her cat, Lila Bear.  The digital stamp is free and can be found here.

Since this was a digital image, I printed it out with my printer and let it dry for several hours before I started coloring it.  I could have heat set it with my heat gun to speed up the process as well, but I had some other images to color and would prefer to let images to air dry for as long as possible, even over night to make sure my Copics won’t smear the ink from the printer.

The Copic colors used are:

Face - E000, E00, E11, E21, R20

Hair - Y21, E31, E33

Eyes - B23, B34, B39

Dress & Shoes - R43, RV14, RV09

Lila Bear - C3, C4, C5, C6, W5, W7

Lila Bear Ears/Nose - R20

Shadow - W1

White Gel Pen (GellyRoll) for the Effect on the Dress
