Altenew - Halftone Circles Tutorial

Hey peeps.  Hope you're having a great day.  I'm back sharing with you a quick tutorial on making your own background paper. If you ever run into the issue of not having the right paper, make your own.  It's really easy to do and it's totally your own style.

So here is a card I made using the Altenew Halftone Circles stamp set.  I've kept the colors toned down with shades of gray yet I gave it a punch with a pop of red.  This is by far one of my favorite color combos.

As you can see the card is still very clean and simple, I've let the stamp set do the work for me. The design is graphic yet very open and airy.

Now onto the tutorial.  Grab your favorite beverage and relax.  You can watch the tutorial here on my blog or over on my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.  Enjoy!

Have a great day everyone.  I'll see you back here soon!

Alcohol Ink Bakgrounds - Darcie's Sea Buddies

Hey peeps.  Happy Monday.  I love making great backgrounds for cards.  I usually make a few and set them aside to use on cards later.  Using alcohol inks on yupo paper or photo paper you can achieve some very cool backgrounds. 

For this background believe it or not I used my Copic refills.  Yes, they are alcohol based inks so why not right?  I used several colors of green and spritzed on some 90% alcohol to get this cool effect.

After the background was dried I paired it with this adorable flamingo from the Sea Buddies stamp set from Darcie's Heart and Home.  Of course living in Florida I have to have a flamingo stamp right?

This adorable image was colored up with Copic markers.  Keeping the card simple, I stamped a sentiment with jet black archival ink and matted the panel on black card stock.  I love working with alcohol inks.  You never really know what you will achieve when making a background but it's always something beautiful and different. 

That's it for today everyone.  I'll see you back here soon!!

Hero Arts May 2017 Card Kit - TUTORIAL

Hey peeps.  I'm back with another tutorial.  Once again the Hero Arts monthly card kit sold out.  This one was full of mermaid inspiration.  I think this one might one of the prettiest ones I have received.  The stencil, stampset and of course the gorgeous sequins was just delightful.

If you were lucky enough to get your hands on this kit, I'm sure you will agree this kit is pretty mermazing.  LOL 

Remember when you get your kits from Hero Arts, there is always a pretty backer paper that your die cuts are attached to.  Make sure you use that paper.  I show you how I did in the tutorial.

I have a tutorial for you as well to share with you how this card came together.  You can watch it here on my blog or over at my Youtube channel mzdanajoy.

Hope you enjoyed the tutorial today.  I'll see you back here soon!

My Creative Scoop - Snow White

Hey peeps.  Happy Sunday.  Sorry for the delay on posting last week.  I wasn't feeling well most of the week so I was a little slow at posting.  I'm happy to be back today sharing with you a card featuring an image from the My Creative Scoop Princess Coloring Class.  I'm so excited to be taking this class.  Mindy does a fabulous job sharing her technique on coloring with Copics and how to make this amazing background as well.

In the course you will receive a no-line image and a black line image to practice your coloring.  This one here is the no-line image.  I really LOVE how this card came out.  Here's a closeup of my image as well.  Mindy really shares with you how to add depth to your images and make it really easy to create a scene for your image too.

If you're looking to really take your Copic coloring to the next level, I highly suggest that you take one of Mindy's classes.  You can use my affiliate link to join in a class or two.  You won't be disappointed in the knowledge you will gain from her awesome classes.  For me it's time to grab my Copics and get back to coloring.  See ya back here soon.
