A lot of you asks me how many copic colors you need to color an image…well it dipends…sometimes is just 5-6 markers, some other you need many many more….for example for this coloring i’ve used 24 colors!

…and i’ve written down all the colors used so it’s easier for you to join our color challenge!

Hope you liked my coloring!

Have a creative day

Sky-High Card kit – Countdown day1 – MFT

Hello everybody!

Tomorrow the sky-high card kit will be available to purchase! This new kit contains a lot of beautiful images to work with and for today’s coloring i’ve used one of the sweetest!

Basic RGB

I’ve stamped my image with my favourite ink pad that is called “extreme black” by MFT and works perfectly with all alchool inks markers!

Then  i’ve colored my image with copic markers.

and then for the first time i’ve tried using a white pastel for the clouds and to add some brightness to the stars in the background.

with a white gel pen i’ve added all the stars in the background.

…and here is a little peek on what’s inside the card kit!



Sky-High Card kit – Countdown day2 – MFT

Hello everyone !

Every “first time” is pretty exciting and this is my first countdown day to the new card kit!

Basic RGB

This new card kit is pretty amazing! Both the stamps included in the kit are so fun and i really loved playing with them!

I’ve colored this super adorable stamp with my copic markers and then i’ve added some details with a white gel pen to make my image “sparkle”.

After coloring my main image i’ve decided that i had to add a “wow” effect and so i’ve added two little rainbows around my image!

 hope you liked my card, can’t wait to see what you’ll create with this amazing sketch!

Have a creative day,

July MFT&Friends

Hello everyone!

It’s time for the MFT&Friends blog post and for today’s card i’ve decided to play with one of my favourite stamp set of this collection!

MFT-Friends-1024x204

For today’s card i’ve taken inspiration from the lochness legend and this cute dinosaur was just perfect for the idea i had in mind.

I’ve masked the bottom part of the dino and hand drawn all the background to create the perfect scene for him!

gettyimages-3422579-1567780743

I love this legend so much and i’ve finally had the perfect stamp to create it! I’ve used all cold tones to give it the perfect vibe. For the sky and the water i’ve used BG70’s and for the rocks E70’s.
Some touches with white gel pen to give the perfect magical effect.

Hope you liked my magical post and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for a new Weekly Sketch Challenge!

Have a creative day,

1 day until the new release – MFT

Hello everyone!

Tomorrow is the big day so be sure to prepare you shopping lists!

For today’s card i’ve played with the one of the new stamp set called “A-roar-able friends” and this dinosaur is the cutest dinosaur i’ve ever seen!

I’ve imagined this cute little guy as Godzilla so i’ve decided to draw a little skyline behind him to create a cute little scene.

CountdownDay1-Alberto

i know that Godzilla is all about “roar roar!!!” but this cute little boy makes my heart melt! As always i’ve colored everything up with my beloved copic markers and as always i’ve added my favourite “magic” touch with white gel pen!

Hope you’ll like my card and i’ll be waiting for you tomorrow for the MFT&Friends post!

Have a creative day

Alberto



2 days until the new release – MFT

Hello everyone!

We are so close to the new release and i’m so happy to share with you some of the new amazing stamps that will be available on July 7th at 10AM EDT!

Print

For today’s coloring i’ve used a cute idea i got some weeks ago and finally got the perfect stamp to make my idea come true!

So i’ve made three cupcakes each one inspired by one of our beloved apps and social networks…i’ve made Pinterest, Facebook and instagram.

So i’ve drawn three squares to make my apps. then i’ve made a coordinated mask for each app. Then stamped the cupcakes from the stamp set called “all the cupcakes” on top of the masks.

CountdownDay2-Alberto

and finally…the fun part! I’ve colored each of the cupcakes with my beloved copic markers and colored the cupcakes with the colors of the app logo: grey and white for pinterest, blue and grey for facebook and pink, orange, yellow and light blue for instagram.

When i’ve finished my coloring i’ve noticed that it still needed the “WOW” effect so i’ve also drawn the notifications logos for each cupcake!

I really hope you’ll like my coloring for today and don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another coloring!

Have a creative day,

Alberto



3 days until the new release – MFT

Hello everyone!
i’m back with a new card for the MFT release countdown. These 6 days are my favourite of all the month!

Print

I’m pretty excited to share with you today’s coloring…and stamp! a new one to my “favourite ever” list! 🙂

This stamp set is called “Best friends in universe” and i LOVE it!

For today’s coloring i’ve decided to play with one of the astronauts and draw a little scene for him!

CountdownDay3-Alberto

First thing i’ve stamped the image and the i drew the star in front of him….then, with my beloved copic markers i’ve colore the whole scene. I started painting the background with B99 marker but then i decided that i wanted it a little more darker to make the star really pop and so i covered everything with BV29 and a little bit of 100.

I’m a bit sorry that on the photo you can actually see all the dransitions between each color around the star but i promise that in real life isn’t that eye catching!

Then i added some stars and white dots on the sky to create the sense of the space!
At the end i like the result, even if it is not that perfect as i wished!

I hope you’ll like it as much as i liked making it! Don’t forget to come back tomorrow for another countdown creation!

Have creative day,

Alberto
