Happy Friday, everyone! Do you have any fun plans for the weekend? Today I am part of Christy’s Celebration Video Hop. Christy reached 10,000 YouTube Subscribers and put together a fun video hop to celebrate. Congrats, Christy! I’m so stoked to be joining her for this milestone. More information can be found in my video or in the bottom of this blog post.
In this video, I’m showing you how to do some fluffy Copic Coloring for your critter stamps. This is an easy and fast technique once you get the hang of it. I learned this feathering technique at a free online class from Kit and Clowder.
I just love the Friends For All Seasons series from WPlus9. Those little animals put a smile on my face. Since it’s September and fall has officially kicked off, I decided to use the Friends For All Seasons: Fall set to create a cute birthday card!
I started out by coloring the images. For the leaves, I did some basic coloring with only 2 markers per image. For this card, I really wanted the bear to pop. So I decided to do some fluffy Copic coloring. A fluffy and fuzzy look can be easily created with the feathering color technique. This technique requires some practicing but it’s still fairly easy. Watch the video for more in-depth info. 🙂
I did some masking and ink blending for my little fall scene. I just love that expression on the bear’s face. Ha! To add some more interest to the white card stock behind the bear, I stamped some leaves and acorns from the Year Round Cheer set from WPlus9. Finally, I added sparkle to the bear with a Clear Wink of Stella Pen, Stickles and Glossy Accents.
Like I mentioned in the video and in the beginning of my blog post, this video is part of Christy’s Celebration Video Hop. Christy reached 10,000 subscribers over at her YouTube Channel: Christy Gets Crafty. A big congrats to Christy for reaching this amazing milestone!
