Resist Technique on Tag

Resist Technique on Tag

3 colors of distress ink (I used aged mahogany, Wild Honey, Broken China)
Ink blending tool,  Ink blending foam (Ranger Tim Holtz)
Versamark ink, Archival ink Coffee and Jet Black
Embossing powder Fine detail silver
Tag, Stamps (by tim Holtz)
Heattool,  Craftsheet

Stamp a swirl or decorative stamp on the tag with Versamark ink pad, emboss with Silver Detail embossing powder and heat with heat tool.

With ink blending tool apply the desired colors to the tag. Use circular motions with the blending tool. Start this circular motion on your craftsheet (or white paper) and during that circling motion you go on to the tag!  This will give you a better result with the inking, and you will not get any stripes on it.…

Take a piece of cloth and make it damp with a Mini mister.. and go lightly over the tag. This way you take off the color of the embossed part.


Stamp your image.  I used Archival Coffee and a little bird stamp from Tim Holtz.  Use the rag and mister again as we did in the last step to remove any ink from the silver embossed area.

Stamp Swirls.  I used Aged Mahogany on tag... and repeat cleaning part as above

Stamp the text.  I used Archival Jet Black on to the Tag and repeat the cleaning part as above.

Distress edges of tag. I used the distresser tool from Ranger.  Of course there are many ways to distress your projects. Color the edge of your tag with ink.  I used Vintage Photo.

Finished Tag.

Hoe gebruik je de snowmarker!

Hoe gebruik je de Snowmarker?

Zoals ik het beloofd op de KreaDoe is hier de uitleg over hoe je de snowmarker kunt gebruiken.

Wanneer je de marker voor het eerst gaat gebruiken is het verstandig om de punt eerst op een restje papier een aantal keren zachtjes wat in te drukken.
Op deze manier zie je dan vanzelf de inkt tevoorschijn komen.

Nu kun je op de plaatsen waar jij sneeuwvlokjes in de lucht, of sneeuw op de grond of sneeuw op een dak of voor het maken van een bontrandje langs een muts of wantje aanbrengen.

Hoe dikker de laag inkt die je aanbrengt hoe hoger de laag uiteindelijk wordt. Dus wanneer je dunne lijntjes op een denneboom wilt aanbrengen dan is het belangrijk om een dun lijntje te maken. Echter maak het ook niet te dun… dan komt er namelijk geen sneeuw omhoog. Op dit soort kleine stukjes is dus enige oefening vereist.

Zorg er nu voor dat je de inkt van de snowmarker helemaal laat drogen! Dit is heel belangrijk voor het mooiste resultaat. Wanner de inkt niet meer glint en dof is kun je aan de slag met je heattool.
Hou deze op enige afstand van de inkt en je ziet de sneeuw groeien.

Hier is het eindresultaat.

Ik hoop dat alles op deze manier duidelijk is en jullie lekker aan de slag kunnen met de snowmarker.

Gebruikte materialen:

Stempel: Rachel Ann Miller Lily & Milo
Ric Rac lint
Bazzil cream en Petunia
Papier en pons uit eigen voorraad
Copic Markers   

Veel plezier ermee en mocht je vragen hebben dan mag je me altijd mailen.
Als je deze uitleg leuk vindt laat me dat dan weten met een berichtje.
Lieve groetjes

Matchbox with Prancer.

Today I want to show you how I dressed up the matchbox with an image from Shelly.
I choose to work with Prancer. I love this beautiful image of him.
First of all I took the messurements of the box and choose the paper I want to work with.

Then you cut the the papers to the right size for the top and the front of the box.
I cut leaves with my Martha Stewart puch out of Green bazzil cardstock and the holy with a Nellie punch.
And then I colored the image of Prancer.

After that I cut the image on size and rounded the corners. I stamped the word on DCP paper and cut and embossed it with an oval nestabilitie and colored the edges with distress ink Peeled paint.

I took some transparent pearls and colored them with the airbrush.

Then I assembled the whole box with all the parts that are now ready.

Hope you like it and make one too and show it to us!

Coloring Red Hair

How to color Red Hair:

I will try to show how I color red hair in an image.
Unfortunally I don’t have a video camera to film it so I did it step by step with photo’s. I hope that all is clear.

For this I use the imge from Michelle Perkett that is called Princess Oceana.
You all now her cause it’s the Logo of Michelle Perkett Studio.

 I use Copic Markers E08-E99-E97-E95

In this image I didn’t work to much with lightfall to keep it more simple!
If you are more experienced you can add this to this technique as well!

Of course there are many more varieties to color red hair.
Just print out a view images and practice and try out colors you like!

I start with the darkest color in this case E08. I look were the dark places in the hair are and color them. It’s mostly the parts were hair is coming from under other hair or when it comes from behind the shells and pearls in this case.

The next step is with copic color E99. I go over the E08 and make it a little larger.. this way the colors will blend a little. Don’t mind if the blending isn’t getting right yet.
We work on that later.

The next step is with the color E97… and we do the same as the step before this. We go over the E99 and a little further in the white areas. Again the blending is not good but we work on that later with our last color.

Now we take E95 and fill in the white spots that are left in the drawing.
When you do this you can go over all the colors. This way you take some color from the darker markers and spread it and blend all colors together.
Now the first layer of you image is colored with the first layer.

Then I will start again with the darkest color E08 and do all the steps over on some places in the hair to add more depth to the image. You can do this several times till you have the depth and color that you like.

I hope you all like this technique and I’m asking you to give it a try with al kind of colors for hair. It’s so much fun to do this. And if you don't get the result the first time... then do it again. I practiced a lot and many first try images ended up in the paper basket! So don't give up!

Please show us your results at the CDAC group.
If you still have questions about this technique please feel free to email me privately at cardsbymarione@yahoo.com

Thanks for looking and leaving a lovely comment

Embossing with ink

Embossing with Ink

I love to emboss papers. But sometimes I want them to have another color so they match better with the colors that I used in my coloring.
So I take my Big Shot by Sizzix and an embossing folder
I take the inkpad I want and start coloring the side with the increased pattern and rub the inkpad softly over the pattern. Make sure to to add pressure otherwise you color the underground as well.

Then place the paper on the normal way in the embossing folder…

 And run the folder through the machine. Make sure to do it slow and give the ink the time to get into the paper. You might run the embossing folder several times through the machine without lifting it out of it’s place!

After you take the mal out you can clean it the way you clean your embossing folder the way you clean your stamps.

You can do the same technique, but then work on the imprinted side of the embossing folder!
Here are both results. You can also use other dies to cut shapes from this papers.

Have fun and make sure to show your results with this technique!

Background stamping

Background stamping Sky

Today's Tutorial is about creating a stamped background sky behing your image.

I choose the beautiful image Swan Love from Shelly's Images.
You can find this lovely image HERE

Print and color the image.
Print the image again on plain white paper.

 Cut out the second printed image.

Mask the colored image with the plain one.

At www.shellysimages.com you find a free image of clouds.
Print it out on firm cardstock and cut it out.
Place the clouds over the masked image and work the edges with the stamping ink.
Replace the cloud and ink again. You can use various colors to create a cloudy sky.

Here is the result after inking the background.
I used some yellow to create a sunrise feeling.
Save the cut out mask for the next time!

I made a loopy lace gift box with the image in it.
This is a different kind of wedding card.

Hope you all like this technique and give it a try and show us at the CDAC Group!
