One day until the New Release – MFT

Hello Crafty Friends!

Welcome back to my blog! Today I’m here to share with you my last card for the countdown days to the new MFT release!

and for today’s coloring I’ve decided to play with one of the cats from the stamp in the “Odd Couple” stamp set. So I’ve stamped this kitty with my “extreme black” inked and then colored it with copics.

After that I thought about adding a little special effect to my coloring so I’ve drawn with my Copic Markers some heart-shaped bubbles!

and as always I’ve added some details with my white gel pen to make the bubbles SHINE! ✨

I hope you’ll like my coloring! Don’t forget to visit the MFT Youtube channel to see more inspiration!

Wishing you a creative day,
Alberto

Two day until the New release – MFT

Hello Crafty Friends and welcome to another countdown day to the new MFT Release!

yes, only two days left until the new release will be available to purchase!

and for today’s coloring I’ve decided to play with one of the gnome stamp set in the little stamp set called “Love to my Gnomies“….so I’ve stamped one of the gnome not one, not two, not three but FIVE times with my beloved “extreme black” inkpad.

So I’ve colored all the gnomies with my Copic Markers and colored each one with a different color of the rainbow! I’ve added some details with my white gel pen to make my coloring sparkle.

Don’t forget to visit the MFT YouTube Channel to find more ideas!

Hope you’ll like my coloring for today!
Wishing you a creative day,

Three days until the New Release – MFT

Hello crafty friends and welcome to the third countdown day to the new release! Yes, we’re only three days away from the new MFT release!

For today’s post I’ve decided to color again a dies and put some colored stamps around it!

So first thing I’ve stamped some of the bees from the “Honey Bees” stamp set. Then I’ve cut them with the coordinated die.

Then I’ve cut out the “Beehive” die and colored it with my copic markers. Adding a watercolor effect background made with copics was perfect!

As always everything was colored with copic markers and I’ve also added some details with a white gel pen to make the images shine! Don’t forget to check the MFT YouTube channel for more ideas!

I hope you’ll like my coloring, wishing you a creative day,

Alberto

Four days until the New Release – MFT

Hello crafty friends!

And welcome to the second countdown day to the new release! Can you believe we’re only four days away from the release? So exciting!

And for today’s project I’ve decided to show you the real difference between a copic coloring and a pencil coloring!

So I’ve stamped this adorable dragon from the “Knight in shiny armor” stamp set and colored one with pencil and one with copic markers!

I’ve stamped the right one with the EXTREME BLACK ink and then colored it with copic markers (R89, R39, R29, R24, R22, R21).

For the left one I’ve stamped the image with the Eiffel Tower ink and then colored with a mix of prismacolor pencils and faber castle pencils!

Which one of the two dragons is your favorite? Let me know in the comments below!

Wishing you a creative day,
Alberto

Five days until the New Release – MFT

Hello everyone!

It’s finally time for another countdown day to the new MFT release!? isn’t exciting? For today’s post I’ve decided to think outside (my) box and try using a die!

So I’ve decided to cut out with my “Heartfelt” die, a piece of copic friendly paper and color the word “love” with my copic markers.

When I was about to color it I was thinking….how can I color this? rainbow? ombre colors? why not a wood effect? That was the perfect idea and so I’ve colored the word as it was made of wood planks.

and I also have a little photo tutorial for you, in case you wanna try to color wood effect!

after I’ve compiled my coloring I’ve white embossed the sentiment on a black cardstock and glued everything with foam tape:

it’s pretty simple and you only need three copics to do the wood effect! You can use this effect on anything you’d like! And if you use it, please tag me on instagram so I can repost you on my stories!

I hope you’ll like my coloring for today and I hope you can find this tutorial helpful for your creations! Don’t forget to list MFT YouTube channel for more inspirations: https://www.youtube.com/user/MFTKim

So I’ve stamped my monster six times and behind each monster you can see the color I’ve used for that step! So easy and yet so effective!
