Color Your World

Welcome to my Thursday post for One Crazy Stamper, and today I have a quick and simple tutorial to share with you using your Copic Markers.  Back when I first started my Copic addiction I remember someone telling me that you could use the markers to add color to photographs, so today I played and LOVE the finished result.  Amazingly easy to do and the results are gorgeous.  Here's the before and after photos.
 
 
The photos were printed on pearl (matt) paper.  Start with lighter colors - you can always add a darker color after.  The colors do not blend so just start light.

 
Adding more colors.

 
The above photo is the finished product, while the below photo shows the original with no retouches.

 
Below is the same photo printed in full color.

 

Now that I have tried this technique I think I can see more black and white photos in my future!  Love the finished look that highlights just the items that are important in a photo and it was so quick and easy to achieve.  Try it out and let me know what you think!

Countdown begins!

So today I have something a little different to show you for my One Crazy Stamper blog post - this is one of three advent calendars that I completed last month for friends and family.  I apologize for the poor quality photo, but I needed to get this one delivered before the end of November so that it could be mailed out, and as usual I didn't finish it until the last moment.

 
The base of the calendar is an older Kaisercraft kit, that you assemble and then decorate with your choice of paper, ink and embellishments.  After painting all of the pieces I choose dp from Simple Stories Cozy Christmas collection to decorate all of the boxes and the sides of the calendar.  All of the edges were inked with  Versafine Vintage Sepia, then the fun began.  I used a mix of embellishments to decorate the individual boxes including ribbon, brads, charms, buttons, Tim Holtz Idea-ology Countdown Charms, while the center scene was built with Tim Holtz bottle brush trees, and a bird bath ornament.  To finish off the scene I used Art Institute Clear Glue to add Floracraft Twinklets Diamond Dust throughout to imitate snow.
