Whimsy Design Team - How to colour white images with Copics

This link takes you to the blog of one of the Whimsy design team members who shows you how to colour white images with Copic markers. I am not a Copic girl but the lesson in how to colour is appropriate no matter what medium you are using.


Whimsy Stamps have started a Wednesday Workshop day that may prove to be very helpful in giving you ideas on how to use their stamps. Don't forget that if you want a stamp that I don't currently stock I can order it in for you.

Happy crafting,

Crafters Companion Winter View

Hi everyone.

I have been using the Crafters Companion stamp and die set called 'Winter View' to make and teach classes with.

This is a great set that includes 2 clear stamps, an embossing folder and metal die. I made two cards of which one is A5 size and the other a normal A6 size. The Christmas tree on the inside of the A5 card is just stamped whereas the other Christmas tree has been coloured with a mixture of pencils, markers and metallic gel pens.

I used a Cottage Cutz Die to create the Poinsettia embellishment on the second card. The brick embossing folder is brilliant. It is a large size and fits a card mat even for the A5 card. I think it looks great with normal brick colours but was pleasantly surprised how good it turned out using non traditional colours.

These sets are only $25 on the website.

Happy crafting,
