Digi Stamp Image

I am honoured to be a guest designer for www.madformarkers.com.au during the month of October....so exciting to have this sort of recognition for one so "new" to the world of copic markers.

The current blog challenge is to colour in a digital stamp image. I chose Spring Flower a little Chibis Digital Stamp designed by Star at www.speschstamps.com. To colour the image I used the following Copic Colours:

Skin - E00, E51, E21, R20

Hair - E33, E35, E37 ( which are my all time favourite hair colours! )

Eyes - BG01, BG05

Dress - BV00, BV02, BV04

Flowers & Leaves - R32, R35, YR02, YR04, YG45, YG63





I pieced together the card using some "Salmon" coloured cardstock and some printed paper designs from Basic Grey's Olivia Range. I also resurrected from my "Tools Archive" some Sizzlets Hawaiian Flower Dies and a Carl Leaf Punch to use for my embellishments.( I seriously can't remember when I last used them ) I then cut the flowers out of my scraps of white X-Press IT Blending Card then coloured them in with the same copic colours I used for the flowers in the digi stamp image. I also coloured in my circle sentiment using these colours - that is one of the things I LOVE about my copics, I can always have, perfect colour co-ordinated embellisments on my card creations! I adhered all the embellishments to the card using some foam adhesive and added some orange/yellow coloured faux pearls to the centre of the flowers. I think this little bit of dimension, finishes the card off beautifully.
