These colors Remember me of the cloudy days, or the days when all you want to do i walk in the puddles! And this was my inspiration for my coloring.

I must admit…this stamp set is one of my favoruite ever and i’ve planned to color it multiple times! I’ve also included the copic color combinations so you can challenge yourself on using them!

I’ve loved playing with those warm colors…and with unicorns of course! I’ve imagined this unicorn as a legendary animal walking on the clouds. The little white falling stars give it a relly magical look, isn’t?

And then i’ve added a little sentiment embossed with white embossing powder on black cardstock!

Hope you liked my coloring and i really can’t wait to see what you’ll create with this sketch!

And here is my card with it! I had this stamp for a while and i couldn’t wait any longer to put some ink on it!

I’ve also drawn a little background and kept the oblique line of the sketch for all the image.

So, sometime ago i asked on my instagram account what you wanted me to color and someone said that “fire”. I loved the idea of drawing a little speed-fire behind this cute little boy wheelchair!

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

Sending big hugs your way and stay safe!

May MFT&Friends!

Hello everyone!

It’s finally time to shop the May Release from My favorite Things!

MFT-Friends-1024x204

I have a new rainbow coloring to show you today! These cute little gnomes are just TOO fun to color and they match perfectly with my passion for rainbows!

I’ve stamped two of the gnomes included in the stamp set and then i added a little rainbow between them!

Then, when it was time to color them i thought “and what if the gnomes are painted in black and white and the rainbow is giving them colors?!” i loved the idea and so i decided to go for it!

unnamed (15)

As always i’ve stamped all the images and sentiment with my beloved MFT extreme black ink and colored them with my copic markers.

And of course i’ve added some white dots and little stars on the rainbow because every rainbow needs some magic touches!

Hope you liked my coloring for today…i hope you loved this release as much as i did and thank you so much for your support during this countdown to the release!

Have a creative day

Alberto

Lemons always remind me of the beautiful Sicily and when i got this stamp i just cound’t wait to play with it!

I’ve stamped and masked my images with the MFT extreme black ink and then i’ve challenged myself a bit and colored it with my new Touch twin markers by Shinhan art!

Have a creative day,

Alberto

So i’ve used a new stamp set called “Mother’s day bouquet”…i’ve stamped some of the flowers on the set, then with a ruler i’ve drawn five different reclangles and colored each of them with a different color to create a rainbow color combo!

As always the image is colored with my beloved copic markers and as always i’ve added some cute little details with a white gel pen!

3 days until the new release – MFT

Hello everyone!

Back with a new coloring for the release coutdown at MFT stamps! Today i’m pretty excited to share with you this stamp set called “Happy Hummingbirds”.

Print

I’ve stamped two of the stamps included in the stamp set and colored them with my beloved copic markers. I’ve decided to color one with warm colors and the other one with cold colors.

Then i’ve added a watercolor-effect background, again made with my copics…and i think rainbow is the perfect color for the background, isn’t?

unnamed (11)

Then i’ve added some details with white and colored gel pens.

Remember, when coloring with alchool markers, to stamp the images with proper ink. I love the MFT Extreme black ink!

Hope you liked my coloring for today and can’t wait to have you back tomorrow for another coloring for the countdown to the new release!

Have a creative day!
