You and me altered photoframe LOTV

It is almost Valentine's day...
I have made this altered photoframe
with the cute new LOTV stamp. 
Called You and Me ..

They are such a cute couple !!
Coloured with my copics, see list below..

On the white photoframe I have added some black lace ribbon with flowers.
The die cut in heart shape was embellished with some sweet mini buttons from Gorjuss.
The cool letters are cut out of foam with my Tim Holz Word play alphabet.

A lovely check ribbon with a big bow to fix the heart to the frame.
The person who will receive this frame can decide to keep this sweet image on the frame, 
or to save it somewhere else. On the back there is a special message ofcourse.

Not too many extra's I love the simple black and white look.

Copics used to colour this image:

Everthing is better shared with a friend !

Hi all, did you see the new launch of the LOTV stamps?? 
This is one of the new ones,  called James Laptop. I love bears..
And this one you can use for many occasions, in my case for a male birthday card.

I have used some of my papers from My minds eye ( Paris & Co ) and Action .

To cut the square , distressed  square and label  
I have used my craftables die ( CR 1254 ) from Marianne Design,
the circle was cut with Nellie's choice MFD.

Some handstitching around the borders and on the label.
A fun element..I have added a metal chain to attach the label to the card.
It is attached to the card and can be put behind the circle.

The sentiment stamp  "Everything is better shared with a friend" of the sweet pea set
( I love this frase !! So true ) and the decorative tape pieces are  from Kaisercraft
stamped with rich cocoa memento ink .

The postal stamp ( CS 0879 )  and sentiment 
"sending birthday wishes" ( SF 1113 ) are from Marianne Design.

I have used the following copics to colour the image:

bear: E 04, E 43, E 53, E 71, E 79 ( new bear colour combo for me )
shadows/ ground  : C 00,C 3, C5, BG 0000, BG 72, BG 93

Copic doodeling tutorial for Copic Italia DT post

Today I am showing you something completely different.
I have prepared an tutorial how to make a special cover for the
This is a cover in A 4 size.
All of us do make doodles from time to time.
Without thinking we put down shapes , dots, lines onto the paper.

When I was doing highschool one of my favourite topics was design / drawing.
A perfect way to express my creativity.
Besides copying and draw real objects
I loved to draw abstract in the "doodeling " style.

At the time I did not have any copics,
that would have been fun!?
From the past to the present, I had lot of fun making this cover.
And therefore I have decided to share this positive experience with you copic lovers.

Ofcourse to do this A 4 size you need a lot of time
( It took me a few days ) and a bit of fantasy!
I advice you to start with a smaller size.

Ready for a step to step tutorial?

I have used a sheet of perfect colouring paper and a pencil.
Just draw shapes / lines / dots , let your fantasy flow..
don't think but just draw..
It is very relaxing!

Than I have used my copic multi liner and black copic marker ( 100 )

Passed over the pencil with the black multi liner  ( 0.3 )

Afterwards the bigger lines where passed with the black copic marker ( 100 )

You get this look

Start colouring with your copic markers...

lots of pretty copic colours

This was the result but I was not happy yet...

So I have added more black..
And this is the final result.

Did I inspire you too??
I promise you it is soo relaxing!

The copics I have used are :

GRUPPO E :02, 04, 11, 13, 18, 25, 31, 33, 35, 37, 57, 79
GRUPPO B :05, 23, 28 , 45, 93, 95, 97
100, GRUPPO R 10, 22, 27, 29, 32, 35, 59
GRUPPO RV 04, 23, 29, 34, 59, GRUPPO YR 02, 20 , 23
GRUPPO Y 38, GRUPPO YG 01, 23, 91, 95, GRUPPO G 29
GRUPPO W 2, 3, 5, 7, GRUPPO C 00, 3, 5, 
GRUPPO V 05, 09, 12, 17, GRUPPO BV 08
multi liner nero ( 0.3 )

Hope you have enjoyed my tutorial..
Ofcourse you could also make a card with a small version!
