Hupffeh Bffday * Mo's DP # 238: Clean&Simple

25.09.14
Hallo Ihr Lieben! Nach 1,5 Monaten gibt es heute zum Start der neuen Challenge bei Mo's Digital Pencil mal wieder ein Lebenzeichen von mir. Durch Urlaub, Schulferien, Krankheit und zu wenig Zeit für zu viele Dinge, war es ja recht ruhig hier auf dem Blog. Doch heute kann ich euch eine Geburtstagskarte zum Thema "Schlicht und Einfach" zeigen, welches sich unsere liebe Kim aus den USA ausgesucht hat.
Die Karte ist für eine Schulfreundin meiner Tochter. Die "großen" Mädchen finden ja so ganz niedliche Motive schon etwas "uncool", aber Tiere gehen auch bei Fast-Teenagern noch! ;-) Da fiel meine Wahl direkt auf den "Cupcake Hamster", der mit passenden witzigen Sprüchen gleich ein Komplettpaket. Bei der Party können die Kids dann ja mal ausprobieren, ob sich "Happy Birthday" mit dem Mund voller Kuchen wirklich so anhört! :-D
Die CAS-Karten mache ich total gern. Mal abgesehen von der Koloration sind sie sehr schnell gemacht und benötigen nicht viel Deko. Ich habe mich hier auf zwei Streifen Washi-Tape unter dem Spruch, eine ausgestanzte "11", etwas Glitter und Glossy Accents auf dem Cupcake beschränkt. Und die Enamel-Dots sind gar keine, dafür habe ich einfach Nagellack benutzt. ;-)

Hello everbody! After 1.5 months, today there is again a sign of life from me at the launch of the new challenge over at Mo's Digital Pencil. Due to vacation, school holidays, illness and too little time for too many things, it was pretty quiet here on the blog. But today I can show you a birthday card for the theme "Clean and Simple" that  our lovely Kim has chosen.
The card is for one of my daughter's school friends. The "big" girls begin to find cute designs something "uncool", but animals are still loved even by pre-teenagers! ;-) That's why I directly chose the "Cupcake Hamster", which comes with matching witty sentiments. So, at the party the kids can try it then, if "Happy Birthday" spoken with cake in the mouth really sounds like that! :-D

I really like to do those CAS cards! Apart from the colouring they are really qickly done and don't need much embellishments. I only used washi-tape, glitter glue and Glossy Accents (cupcake), a die punched "11" and enamel dots which aren't really ones, because I used nail polish do make them.


 




Liebe Grüße - hugs,

Hallo Ihr Lieben! Nun ist schon wieder August - Wahnsinn, oder?! Momentan genießen wir in Niedersachsen die Sommerferien und nächste Woche geht es ab in den Urlaub! ;-) Heute habe ich erstmal ein neues Kärtchen für euch, da wieder eine neue Challenge bei Mo's Digital Pencil startet. Unsere fabelhafte Elaine möchte gern Beiträge zum Thema  "Geburtstag Mädchen" sehen.
Meine Karte ist für unser Patenkind. Sie steht momentan total auf "Monster High" und daher fand ich das Motiv "Little Punk" irgendwie ganz passend. ;-)

Prismacolor Tutorial 2: Kolorieren von dunkelbraunem Haar * Colouring dark brown hair

12.08.14
Hello crafters and Mo fans! ;-)

Today it's time for a new tutorial for Mo's facebook group “Bella and Bronte’s Clubhouse” and I would like to show you my way to colour brown hair on kraft paper. I will complete the image from my first tutorial and once it's finished the image will look like this:



This is the result from the skin tutorial and my starting point for today:


Step 1
I started by looking which parts of hair I would like to be the lightest and coloured them in strokes with CREAM. (Please do not wonder about the photo exposure, but I highlighted the photo so that you can see more of the strokes.)


Step 2
Next, I used GOLDENROD as basis for the rest of hair. You can already layer/blend these two colours by drawing slight strokes over the CREAM.



Step 3
By using CHESTNUT I started to model the parts of hair which I want to be the darkest. I also created a colour transition between light and dark by stroking into "highlights".


Step 4
Just intesify the darkest parts by using DARK UMBER to deepen the shadows.


Step 5
The last step is only to blend everything for smooth transistions. I chose LIGHT UMBER as my blending tone. And now the hair is already finished!
 


If you like, after finishing skin and hair you can trace all black lines with a very sharp black pencil.
And in case you are also interested in how I did her shirt, you can follow the pics step by step:





 

 


I am so sorry for the bad photo quality at the end, but it was already late and dark and I only used my smartphone camera. Nevertheless I hope, you liked my tutorial so far. In case of any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me!

Liebe Grüße - hugs,

Baby-Erinnerungsbox * Mo's DP # 234: Things with wings

24.07.14

Hallo Ihr Lieben! Nun ist der ganze WM-Trubel (**** Weltmeister! Juhuu!) vorbei und man fühlt sich schon wie im "Sommerloch". Geht's euch auch so? Unsereiner kann sich ja gut Abhilfe schaffen, Bastelideen gehen ja irgendwie nie aus ... ;-) Ein Anreiz bietet vielleicht auch unsere neue Challenge bei Mo's Digital Pencil. Diesmal durfte ich ein Thema aussuchen und ich habe mich für "Dinge mit Flügeln" entschieden. Ich finde, hierzu kann man viel umsetzen und vor allem auch sommerlich
Von mir gibt es mal KEINE Babykarte ;-), dafür aber eine Babybox für Kindheitserinnerungen. Diese ist als Geschenk für Katys Tochter entstanden, ihr Sohn hat damals schließlich auch schon eine Erinnerungsbox von mir bekommen. Passend zur Glückwunschkarte habe ich wieder das niedliche Motiv "Fairy sleepy" verwendet. Rund um die Box sind auch noch verschiedene Babyelfen aus dem Set "3 baby fairies" zum Einsatz gekommen. Damit das Ganze nicht zu bunt wird, habe ich diese aber unkoloriert gelassen.

Hello everbody! The entire FIFA World Cup excitement is over now (**** world champions! Woohoo!) and it already feels like in the summer slump. Do you feel the same way? But we crafters can quickly find a remedy as crafting ideas never seem to stop ... ;-) One incentive may be our new challenge at Mo's Digital Pencil. For this fortnight I chose the theme and decided on "Things with wings". I think this is perfect for many ideas and for summer.
This time I don't have a baby card to show, but therefore a baby box for childhood keepsakes. This box was a present for Katy's newborn daughter, as her son even has got one from me back then. Matching to the baby card I used the super cute image "Fairy sleepy". There are also several baby fairies on each side of the box. They are contained in the set "3 baby fairies" and I left them uncoloured so that's not getting to colourful.

Tutorial - Kolorieren mit Prismacolor Stiften * Colouring with Prismacolor pencils

22.07.14
Hello crafters and Mo fans! ;-)


As you may know, we are doing weekly tutorials for Mo's facebook group “Bella and Bronte’s Clubhouse”. I was often asked, how I colour my images with my Prismacolor pencils and now I am revealing (a part) of the secret! ;-) I guess, you would prefer to see a video tutorial. But, believe me - you‘ won’t like to sit there (and hear my bad English) as long as it takes to colour!
 

Today I am showing you my way to colour skin on kraft paper. The tutorial for hair and for images on white paper will follow.



A few words about the paper:

In general I use plain white cardstock for several drawing techniques, 250g/qm, smooth surface. In Germany and Austria this is very suitable:

And the kraft cardstock I use is the good old „Crumb Cake“ from Stampin‘ UP! ;-)




I mainly blend the colours without spirits, but only with the pencils themselves or with paper stumps.


The image I used is the cropped version of“I dunno”, which was a freebie given by Mo for the first clubhouse contest. Now let‘s get started:


Step 1
I started by colouring all over with WHITE. Just by light hand and  at best in circular moves so you don't get that much streaks of pigment (important for later blending).


 
Step 2
Next add an all over layer with CREAM. This will make the base more smoother. But spare out the eyes! ;-) At top of each picture you can see the respective pencil I used.


Step 3
Next layer with DECO PEACH.
Now you can already start to spare the parts, which you want to be the lightest at the end (f.i. back of nose).
 
 
  
  Step 4
Add more depth and shape with layer of BLUSH PINK.You achieve shaping by leaving areas lighter (cheeks, lower forehead, nose).
 

Step 5
Create more darker parts by using NECTAR. Again, concentrate on the parts which will be darker due to shadows. And do not completely overlay the layer of Blush Pink. This way you will have a smooth colour gradient and smooth change between lighter and darker areas.
 

 
Step 6
Complete shading by using HENNA.
I wanted to have more depth and added once again a darker colour, but only in very small amounts (at the hair line, temples, inner eye corner, corner of the mouth). See the difference?


Step 7
And now, we are doing magic: Go back over all shaded areas by using BLUSH PINK.
Move your pencil in circular motions over the darker parts you created. This way you blend the colours easily.  Remember leaving out the areas you want to have the lightest. This step is so much fun! ;-)
If the image may
have lost some depth due to the blending, you can go back and repeat steps 5, 6, 7 as often as you like.
 

Step 8
To really start the image to go alive, it needs some cheeks: Draw a triangle with PALE VERMILLION.
Start drawing and filling in the triangle with very light strokes! In case you won’t be satisfied with its outcome you can correct it easily and nothing won’t be ruined. ;-)
 

Step 9
If you like your cheek triangles: Intensify with POPPY RED.
 


Step 10
Blend with BLUSH PINK. You can repeat  these two steps until you like the result.
 

 
 Step 11

Not to forget her lips: colour with MAHOGANY RED. Spare the centre and layer in the corners, so it will look more vividly! 

 
Now her face is finished! ;-) Hope you liked my tutorial so far.

Liebe Grüße - hugs,
