Who wants to win some stamps? {and a Copic coloring video tutorial}

***Breaking news! Since we have had so many comments just hours after posting the giveaway Annette and Barry, the owners of About Art Accents/Art Neko, are letting me pick 2 winners! Leave a comment people! Good luck & Merry Christmas!***

Oh my goodness, I have so many Christmas projects yet to blog, what’s a girls to do? Hey, I know, I’ll give away some stamps!

DCF 1.0

Since I was a slacker very busy crafter this month I forgot to giveaway some Christmas stamps from About Art Accents so the totally awesome, completely understanding owner said “go ahead Lindsay, post the giveaway and we will give away a surprise bundle of goodies” since my readers will need Christmas stamps in a week like a hole in the head. I like surprises and if you have a look at the About Art Accents website I’m sure you will love whatever the prize is. Just leave a comment and you are entered to win, it’s as easy as that! I’ll pick a winner next weekend!

I had a request for a Copic coloring tutorial and as you know I mix and match supplies so here you have an alcohol marker tutorial using Copics, Promarkers and Prismacolors. Look, they all play nice together, so you can try a marker or two from different brands and see what you like best and you won’t have wasted and money because they can be used together. The angel stamp I used can be found hereΒ and it is on sale for $4.90 (regular price $7). The papers I used to make the final card can be found at Oriental Trading Company.

Sometimes I forget how much I love coloring with markers. A tip is to stamp out a bunch of images and keep them in a bag with your markers (clear cosmetic bags are great for this) and you can take them with you to color in front of the TV, on trips, or wherever you might be. It is an easily portable project and the more you color the better you get! Β That’s it for me tonight, leave a comment for a chance to win some wonderful non Christmas stamps from About Art Accents and til next time happy crafting!

  2. I would love some Christmas stamps. I am determined to make at least one a week starting in January, because I am such a slow crafter and I hate the last minute running around. Thanks for a chance to win.

  3. As always, I loved watching this tutorial. Win some stamps? Oh yes, count me in. Any kind too, even Christmas stamps would be awesome. I LOVE stamps.

    And I love all your great tips and learning that it is fine to mix alcohol marker brands was a great one.

    When I started stamping and did not know about Bics and Sharpies and did not want to spend the price of Copics, I bought dye art makers–like Crayola. Discovered if I used colored pencil first, then went over it with marker after, the paper would not pill.

  39. Great coloring video! Thank you for the reminder about colors that bleed (choosing the green rather than the red for the ornament). As I sit here trying to control some bleeding on my image I hear your words and think I should have used a lighter color so the bleeding would not be as prominent.
