Steampunk Ryan and Christmas angel by Blankina

Hi all,
Busy making Christmas cards?? 
 Did you get some of the new Nativity digi's??
For the new nativity/christmas digi see  qui- here-hier.

I wanted to show you also some other new Nativity digi's..
but my printer decided not to work.

Anyway I thought it was time for another male birthday card,
so I have got my cool steampunk Ryan out..
Which I had already printed out some time ago.

I have used these copics to colour the card ;
skin: E0000, E000, E11
hair: E31, E33, E 35, E 37
clothes : W 2, W 3, W 5. W 7, B 00, B97, B 99
shadow / confetti : W2, W 3, W 5, B 0000, E 000

This was the card I had made for the release.
A card in non traditional colours..but I think it suits this pretty angel designed by Sammi...

Have a great december month , happy crafting and see you soon!!
Would love to get your visit on my personal blog too.

Hugs Blankina

Copic Coloring Shepard Boy Ryan With Sheep

Busy busy month December is turning out to be in the studio!  But...not to busy to color! :)

I actually had a moment to sit and create a video tutorial on coloring Shepard Boy Ryan and share a technique on how to color the sheep..to give it the fuzzy look. :) The 1st video tackles the sheep  and also using certain papers to your advantage.  The rest of the videos are of coloring the clothes. If you don't see all the videos just yet please be patient as I am uploading them. :)

M4M December Daily

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! :) Well almost. It's cold enough... LOL

I can't think of a better way to spend cold winter days than staying inside the studio and crafting ...creating :). I have a couple projects on the go, and this year I  trying my hand at the December Daily! However I'm also going to get my family working on it :) This way it makes it the  Family December Daily :)

Here is a peek at one of my pages.  Perfecting timing when I received M4M digi stamps! Thank you Sammie :) Adorable as always :)

I colored my wise-boy in with earth color Copics. I used the YR family but my base was earth family.  The background of my page is embossed with Detail White Embossing powder (my favorite). The cards are journaling Christmas cards by Bazzill Basics.  The dies (poinsettias, tag, holly, Christmas star and stable)  are from Silhouette, which I cut using my Cameo. The sentiment was a pop up sticker from Me & My Big Ideas Soft Spoken.
I have lots of space to journal and add snapshots!

Don't forget to stop by M4M and check out the nativity Digi Stamps :)

Spooky birthday (halloween) card

Hi all,

How are you?? Getting ready for Halloween ??
I have coloured up the sweet witch  image
 called Taya as a witch 
designed by Sammi.
To be honest I do not celebrate Halloween myself
 but this digi was also perfect for a spooky birthday card.
Don't you think??
Did you see the whole collection??

The copics I have used are :

YG 00,Y 38, YR 20, YR 23, 
W3, W5, W7, 
BV 02, BV 08, BV 29, V 09, 
100, E 35

You can hardly see it on the photo but her face is yellowgreen...( YG 00, blush YR 20 )
The first time I have coloured a face like this..quite fun!!

I am so happy that this coming month I will attend some copic classes.
I have followed a workshop once and I love to learn more copic colouring skills.
This time it will be official copic courses...
So hope to share my new skills soon at the Mad for Markers blog.

Enough for now..please remind that 
designed by Sammi are for sale...
all proceeds go to the NSW rural Fire service

Big hugs from Italy,

PS I have a candy on my personal  blog , running untill the 20 th of november
