Creating a background with die cut leaves

Hi Everyone!

Let’s kickoff the new year with the new colouring challenge over att Make It Crafty, it’s all about that skin! It’s an easy one, so come and join us! As I’m a inspirational designer for Make It Crafty you are not competing against me, I’m just here to give you some tips and tricks. As usual you get two videos from me, a cardmaking video and a real time colouring video. For the cardmaking part I’ve choosen to make a background with die cuts.

But let’s start with the colouring! For my inspirational pieces for the challenges I want to bring something different. And this time around I come up with a beautiful dark skin colour. Dark skin colours are hard, specially with copics, they very easy either gets very muddy, are to red or to light. But hopefully you like mine. I’ve choosen to do two layers of colours to get a beautiful skin, using E70 series for the bottom layer and E10 series for the upper layer.

With the card I’ve been having this idea for a long time, been wanting to create a leafy background by layering loads of die cut leaves. I added some coffee mugs for a added detail and stamped some coffee related sentiments, both on the inside and the outside. I brought a little of the design to the inside by adding a mug and a leaf to the inner sentiment.
