Magical Day!

Hi There! Today, I’m sharing this month’s lesson all completed from Kit and Clowder July 2020 Markers class called “Once Upon a Time”.  The image is by artist Connie Fong. There were so many new techniques learned in this month’s video taught by Alyce Keegan. I love these lessons, because you can stop and start the videos at any time and repeat what Alyce is teaching you.

I had fun colouring in all of the background, but, then my worst nightmare started. I had cleaned all of my markers and made sure they were all full before clouring in the dress, hair and skin. Unfortunately, I ran into a few problems with my markers when I went to colour in the skin tones. For some crazy reason, they decided to get icky when blending the colours. First I tried using a Copic Colorless blender to fix it, but that didn’t really help. I really didn’t want to start over from the very beginning, so I looked up the conversion chart on the Kit and Clowder site for Copic Markers to Prismacolor Pencils. I used that conversion and coloured over the markers with the pencils for the skin tones. Then, I re-outlined her face and arms with a Pigma Micron 005 black marker after all of the colouring was completed.

I also used a PrismaColor Primiere White pencil to make some of the highlights in the folds brighter on the edges.

To put the card together, I used Kraftin’ Kimmie – Magical Friends for the sentiment. I really love the Creative Memories – Mermaid Cove Designer Paper Pack background for this image. It blended in so well. I edged around the card with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint. Lastly, to finish off the card, I fussy cut around the image and popped it up with 3M VHB – 2 sided tape and added Craft – Rhinestone Stickers – 02 -3048783 on top of the card in random places to give it some bling.

Hope you like it!


Magical Friends

Hi There!

I had a chance to work with the new Kraftin’ Kimmie – Magical Friends stamps. It was so much fun and I hope you love my creation.

I know that we all would love a cleaning fairy, so I used the sentiment from Kraftin’ Kimmie – Lorretta Laundry stamp set on the front.

I also thought the little Gnome and squirrel on the stump from the Kraftin’ Kimmie – Whimsical Gnomes stamp set fit well with the little scene that I was trying to create.


If you look closely at the paper in the background, you will also see some little fairies playing in the flowers.

Of course, I couldn’t resist putting in this little fairy playing with her kitty on the inside, which is also part of the new Kraftin’ Kimmie Magical Friends stamps set.

Here is a close-up:

She has no intention of doing any housework at all! LOL! Instead she is enjoying her day!!! Sentiments surrounding the image are from the new Kraftin’ Kimmie – Magical Friends stamps set.

Birthday wishes are from Kraftin’ Kimmie – Kick Assy Birthday stamp set.

All images were stamped onto Copic Marker X-Press It Blending Card using my  MISTI – Most Incredible Stamping Tool for precision stamping and Memento – Tuxedo Black ink. Then coloured in with Copic markers.

Sentiments were stamped with Versa Fine – Onyx Black and Ranger – Clear Super Fine Detail embossing powder.

Edged around die cuts and main card with Sharpie – Gold Medium Point – Water Based Paint.

Background Paper: Unique Papercrafting Graphics 45 – Fairie Dust Collection.

Die Cuts: Your Next Stamp – Stitched Rectangle Die Set (YNSD214); Spellbinders – Die D-Lites Conversation Bubble 3 Etched Dies
