Copictopia Design Team - Gifts Galore Meadow


Hi. Heather here. We all need birthday cards again at the beginning of each year, and I loved this image, it was great for birthday or Christmas cards.

I kept "Meadow" very soft and pretty with the soft pinks and soft brown hair. This left me plenty of colours to play with for the gifts. I will say that I cheated and used a gold gel pen for the ribbon on 2 of the gifts. It gave the card a bit of bling as well.

The background was done using Distress Oxides, Spun Sugar and Shaded Lilac. Simply just blended on to the card using a blending tool. Then lightly spritzed with water, allowing some larger drops, then leaving for about 10 seconds then blotting with a paper towel to remove the water and leave the water drop effect on the card.
I then ran it through my Big Shot with the Happy Birthday die, then attached the card front (4"x5.75") to my card. Meadow was fussy cut out and attached to the card using foam dots.
The card was then finished by adding a bit more bling by using the clear diamantes.

Copictopia Design Team - At Ease


Hi. Heather again. Today I'm working with this super cute turtle from the At Ease collection. I love his little smiley face!

I coloured him with greens, but more in the khaki green range with a hint of light green towards the centre of his face. His shell I tried a few different colours but liked the end result of these mauve colours.

To do the background I printed another image onto another piece of paper to create a mask for my coloured turtle. I then very gently sprayed with a Tiffany Blue spray and a Sheer Shimmer Spray. I then carefully removed my mask and dried my cardfront. once dry I used a black pen to draw in the scribble border and touch up the title where it needed it.

Copics used:
G24, YG03, YG11
E44, E43, E41
V28, V25, V22, B63

Copictopia Design Team - Flounderin Around


Hi. Heather here. I've been playing with these super cute images from the Flounderin Around set in the April pre-order. 

I loved the teal and pinky/purple colours for this mermaid, they are a great pop of colour, they blend nicely, and are just so girly and feminine.

The fish have been done in a blue and a pop of yellow to give a bit of a contrast to what was already happening on the card.

The background was done on my gel plate using distress oxide inks and was just spraying with a little bit of water the ink that was left over from previous lifts. It gave this great mottled effect which I thought was great for an underwater effect without being obviously water. I've also added a circle die cut with some silver glitter cardstock to add some bling and water shine.

Copics used:
SKIN - E11, E21, E00, E000, R20
EYES - B45, G24
TAIL - BG49, BG45, BG23, BG11
HAIR - RV66, V05, RV63

Thank You.
