FUN COPIC HAIR COLORS ~ COPIC COLOR CHART

Hello and welcome! I have had the privilege of taking Copic Training classes with Lori Craig and Michelle Houghton and they are both sweethearts with mad coloring skills. I had some down time recently and decided to use some of it to practice coloring hair with a fun and funky twist (inspired by some of their color choices).


It should be noted that five different people could color the same image with the same markers and have five very different images. The final result depends on how much color you lay down and how much you blend your colors. If you add your colors while the ink is still wet they will blend more, or you can wait until one layer is dry before adding your flicks of color to get more distinct streaks. It's all about your own preferences and techniques ... which is why I wanted to practice ... and play.

I hope I've inspired you to have some coloring fun! 
Thanks so much for stopping by.

MID-WAY REMINDER FOR HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #199 ~ "HOUSE MOUSE AND A FRIEND"

Hello and welcome to another House Mouse Monday. We are half way through our challenge and the theme is House Mouse and a Friend (with the option of Anything Goes). This week I chose to use "The Quick Fix" House Mouse Designs stamp by Stampendous because we all know how nice it is to have a friend nearby when you're down.


I stamped my image on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers.


Then I die cut the image with Spellbinders Decorative Elements Labels Twenty-Two and distressed the edges with Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Tumbled Glass and Gathered Twigs). Next I layered some decorative papers from My Minds Eye "Now and Then" paper stack and Recollections cardstock and added some Stitched Satin Ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbon following this Sketch from Splitcoast Stampers.

 

I broke up the sentiment and stamped it on two little tags from the same paper pack, distressed them with  more Tim Holtz Distress Ink (Pine Needles and Pumice Stone) and added them to the card along with some bird seed (my family thinks I've officially lost it with this one ...lol) to go with the stamped image.


Now on to the challenge details:

SISTER ACT CARD CHALLENGE #116 ~ "ANYTHING GOES"

Hello and welcome to a new challenge at Sister Act Card Challenge. This week's sponsor is Di's Digis and I am using the "Scruffy Santa Bear" digital stamp.

(click on photo for larger view)
I printed the digital image on Neenah Solar White cardstock, colored him with Copic Markers and "fussy cut" him out so I could pop him up on dimensionals on the front of my card.

  feel free to PIN me!

Using my Copic Colors to determine my color palette, I layered some Recollections cardstock with some Christmas paper scraps following this sketch from Splitcoast Stampers to make my card base. The only changes I made were substituting tags for flags and adding a sentiment I typed and printed.

A little bling was all that was needed to give this card its finishing touches!

For more information on the challenge and a look at the Design Team's cards, pop on over to Sister Act Card Challenge where it's always "Anything Goes".

HOUSE MOUSE AND FRIENDS MONDAY CHALLENGE #199 ~ "HOUSE MOUSE AND A FRIEND"

Hello and welcome to House Mouse Monday! It's time for a new challenge and the theme is "House Mouse and a Friend" with the option of "Anything Goes". This time around, I chose to make an "Anything Goes" card using this adorable "Tee Time" House Mouse stamp by Stampendous!

(click on photo for larger view)

I stamped the image on Neenah Solar White cardstock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I let the shading in the stamp dictate where my shadows would be. Here's a list of the colors I used.

(click on photo for larger view)

I started with a Side Step Card Base made from Recollections Cardstock. Then I die cut my colored image with MFT DieNamics Stitched Rectangles and added it to the base.

After that came the embellishments and for that I used these fabulous dimensional stickers from Michaels.

FREE DIGITAL STAMP ~ IF MOMMA AIN'T HAPPY...

Hello and welcome to another Free Sentiment Saturday! Today's digi was inspired by a lot of things ... but mostly chocolate. Sometimes when I get a migraine and all else fails, chocolate will help. Don't ask me why. I don't know ... but it does. On one such occasion my daughter saw that I was still hurting after ice and medicine and took it upon herself to go out and get me some chocolate. I laughed when she brought it to me and I said, "If Momma ain't happy ... she needs chocolate." All three kids then looked at me and said, "You have to make that into a digi." So while I was at it, I decided to add some other things to the list.


Here's the deal: This digital stamp (without the watermark) is available in jpg and png format. If you would like to have it, please send me an email and I will send it out to you.

Send emails to: snoopyshomemadefunblog (at) gmail (dot) com.

As always, my digis are free of charge because FREE is definitely in my budget and I know it's in yours too ...lol. One request though, please do not share these with others, instead send them here and I will be happy to send them the digis as well.

By the way, there's no expiration date on my digis so if you see one from the past that you'd like to have, send me an email at the above address and tell me the name of the digi or the date the digi was posted and I'll get it out to you.
