The Daily Marker Challenge Day 8

For The Daily Marker Colouring Challenge I am colouring with my Faber Castell Polychromos Pencils.
Although colouring with pencils is time-consuming I always have fun doing it.
Instead of using cardstock with a tooth, what makes it easier to layer the colour and blend, I am colouring on smooth cardstock. I wanted to give this a try and I like it. You have to be careful with your pressure. Best is very light, hold the pencil more on the end of it than by the point and in such angel that you won’t colour with only the point. This way it isn’t difficult to layer.

I hope to find time next week to finish this image.
For those who think that I forgot the space behind and close to the girl, she is getting a veil and then it’s easier to draw and colour that first.

The Daily Marker Challenge Day 1

I am participating The Daily Marker Colouring Challenge, every time it is a lot of fun!
I will not post every little bit of colouring I do, most of the time I colour for about 10 – 30 minutes.
I will colour the image you can see here below with my Polychromos pencils. Colouring with pencils take time, that’s why I won’t show every day what I have done.
The image is from Tiddlyinks and I am follow a Kit and Clowder Class from July 2018 to colour.

Age is just a number – The 30 Day Coloring Challenge

It’s the last day of The 30 Day Coloring Challenge. Due to health problems this time not many colouring done. But every day I have taken me-time to read on the blog and look at all the beautiful things that were made. Kathy (The Daily Marker) it was great again, thank you so much and I hope next year an other Coloring Challenge.

This week I made a shaker card, it’s a birthday card for a friend. It’s often difficult to make up a male card  especially if you made every year for the same person a birthday card. But a shaker card I never made for him, so this time I did.
I used a stencil and three colours of Distress Oxide to blend numbers on the front panel.
Then I die cutted a heart out of that panel and with the same die and a smaller piece out if the die cutting nest, I cutted  a frame.
Out of three different colours of cardstock I die cutted numbers for the shaker part.
I glued the heart on to my base card and put  2 mm foam tape around it, that is my shaker part. Then I put the numbers in that heart.
Behind the heart opening that I die cut in the front panel I glued some transparent sheet, then I glued this part on top of my base card in such a manner that the transparent closes the shaker part.
To finish the shaker part I adhered the frame on top of the transparent.
The sentiment, Age is just a number in Dutch, I made on my computer, I cut it to the right size and finished my card by putting the sentiment with some foam tape on the card.

Delfts Blue in the snow – The 30 Day Coloring Challenge

Even though I did not coloured the images on this card, I made it with The 30 Day Coloring Challenge in mind, because I took every day a little “me-time” to make it!

Delfts Blue is a famous blue and white pottery made in and around Delft in The Netherlands.
The most highly-regarded period of production is about 1640–1740, but Delftware continues to be produced. Why I am telling this? I am Dutch and I made a Holiday card in blue and white, Delfts Blue in mind.

I used several stamp sets from different brands to make my winterscene. Starting with stamping the ice skating couple by Marianne Design and stamped them again on a piece of scrap paper so I could mask them while stamping the fence ( Viva Decor).
After that, I stamped a tree on the left side and also one on scrap paper so I could stamp the second tree behind it. I let this dry for several hours because I stamped with Distress Ink and I wanted to ad snow.
All the snow I have is water based so look for you work with snow, what base it is and when it is water base and you are stamping also with an water base ink or ink reacting with water (most dye inks are)  make sure the ink is dried well enough  otherwise you can get bleeding of the ink through your snow.
Added my snow and a little extra glitter on top of it, just an extra hint by blowing a little from my hand into the air (not in my room LOL but outside) and holding the card under the falling glitter. So I don’t get a lot of extra glitter because there is already glitter in my snow.
I added some Aqua Shimmer on the area where the ice is, to give this also a little shine.

I wanted to finish the card with falling snow made with my snow stencil, but where the stencil supposed to be it wasn’t. I turned my whole craftroom ( on that moment I was glad he is small) over but the stencil is gone and stays gone.
After doing a bunch of other small things I had to do, I returned to my craftroom in the hope that I would find the stencil in my daughters stencil map, but no, still gone.
Because I wanted to finish the card so it could dry overnight I picked some Acrylic paint and put this on a acryl stamping block with a little water and Perfect Pearls. I used a small paint brush, took a little bit of paint on my brush and tapped gently on my brush while I held it above the card. I wanted small flakes and not big blobs and not too much, just enough to put a little bit interest to the background. I masked the faces from the boy and girl. If you don’t, you will see that there is a splatter in a place where you don’’ t want it, for example on a eye. So masking is the answer.

The next day everything was dry and I put the panel on to a blue card with foam tape for some dimension and (at last) my first Holiday card for this year is finished.
You can find the use materials under the images.
The second image shows the glitter and shine on the card.

The 30 Day Coloring Challenge

challenge_graphic_nov_18_16x24
I am participating in the 30 Day Coloring Challenge that was started on 1 November.
This is not my first time and I am enjoying it everytime. I will tell you in a nutshell the concept of this,  it’s all about a little “me-time” everyday. 10/15 minutes a day for yourself and your hobby, to calm, relax and enjoy. There is nothing that you must, everything is good. You can all read it on the blog of The Daily Marker, hereby the link to the page where you can read all about it:
https://www.thedailymarker.com/2018/10/the-30-day-coloring-challenge-is-bacckkkk/

I don’t colour a image a day, sometimes I will post a part of a coloured image, a finished one or even the whole card when it’s finished. So I will not post everyday but I always read and comment on the daily blogpost at the Daily Marker site.
I thought this was a good moment to start making my Christmas cards.
Previously I made a whole pile of cards for everyone I sent a card, but nowadays I only make them for those I know they appreciate a handmade card and all the work that I put in it. The other ones still get a Christmas card but I buy them.
I started one, but can’t show you anything yet, the background didn’t came out as I had in mind and takes me a lot more work than I thought. So hope you all have a little patience with me and I hope to post my first Christmas card soon.
