For my first post i’ve used the hydrangea in bloom stamp set and i’ve decided to go with the no-line tecnique and some pixel art to give the stamp a little twist!

Family is forever!

Hello everybody! i’m more than excited today to share with you a project i’ve made for Kindres stamps. They make the most cute stamps inspired by films, tv series and so much more….i think you should check them out!

When I saw this stamp set it was love at first sight and I thought it would be fun to create a little scene for it! I started drawing the main elements in the background as the sea, the palm trees etc.

Then with my beloved copics markers I started painting it. I love high contrast colorings so I played a lot with my darks and my lights. With a white gel pen I added some accents here and there (as for the stars, a little light on the eyes…)

The sentiment “Family is forever” is from the same stamp set and it match perfectly with my two characters!

Stampede blog hop!

Welcome to a very special Mama Elephant Design Team blog hop! We are celebrating 7 years this month with a fantastic new holiday release along with our amazing friends!

I’ve stamped one of these adorable penguin from the “little penguin agenda” stamp set on alchool marker friendly cardstock…then i had so much fun with my copic markers.

the sentiment is from the “mini merry messages” stamp set and it was an hard choice because all the sentiments in this set are just adorable!
for the snow i’ve used my beloved white gel pen… i love how it turns out, what do you think?

I Famosi Draghi Polari – Scrap It Easy DT

Buongiorno a tutti!

eccoci, finalmente siamo arrivati a questo fatidico giorno…eh si, il mio primo post per scrap it easy. Lo ammetto, sono una persone che vive molto l’ansia da prestazione e prima di decidermi su cosa farvi vedere oggi ci ho messo diverso tempo…e materiale.

Ho provato a fare tante cose….ho persino cominciato a fare un minialbum, un layout… ma alla fine ho deciso di mostrarvi questa, una card semplice semplice con giusto due immagini colorate. Insomma, la parte più autentica di me.

Ho usato questo bellissimo set di timbri della My Favorite Things che presto, prestissimo arriveranno nello shop di Scrap It Easy!

Ho timbrato i due bellissimi draghetti con lo StazOn nero e al posto del blocco acrilico ho usato la stamp platform di Tim Holtz…beh, se non avete provato nulla di simile sappiate che questo attrezzo vi cambierà la vita!

 

ScrapItEasy

ma questi non sono gli unici timbri che arriveranno nello shop….quindi temperate le matite, sfoderate i pennarelli e cominciate a bagnare i pennelli!

Spero che la mia card vi sia piaciuta e ci vediamo prestissimo su questi schermi per il mio primo tutorial….comincio a pensare e mi raccomando incrociate le dita per me!

Vi abbraccio

Alberto

 

I Am Roses Challenge!

Buongiorno carissime followers,

eccoci qui, anche oggi ho qualcosa di nuovo da mostrarvi…si tratta della mia seconda card come guest designer per la I Am Roses. Come sapete sono diventato guest designer per alcuni mesi e in questi mesi voglio mostrarvi quante cosine si possono fare con i loro bellissimi fiori.

Oggi vi voglio mostrare la card che ho creato per il loro challenge mensile. Chi mi segue sui social già saprà che io ormai sono proiettato al Natale e quindi mi sono messo all’opera con una bellissima tildina di Natale.

Ho timbrato l’immagine su carta da acquerello e poi mi sono divertito a colorarla con i distress. Per dargli qualche colpo di luce sugli occhietti e sulle guance ho usato un pennarello uniposca a punta extrafine.

Per la composizione della card ho proprio goduto….le nuove carte della kaisercraft sono FAVOLOSE e abbinate a questi bellissimi fiori….beh, fare una card con questi fiori è un gioco da ragazzi!

Qualche fustellata e qualche adesivo sono serviti per arricchire ulteriormente la card per un effetto davvero shabby chic!

Che ne dite? vi ho messo voglia di partecipare al challenge?

Allora vi aspetto sul blog della I Am Roses

Io v’abbraccio e ci sentiamo prestissimo

Alberto
