The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog ~ Spring

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog

Hello fellow Crafters,

It is time for another challenge for The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog. Today our theme is SPRING! We have two Sponsors for this weeks challenge. Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and Inky Impressions.

Heute wird es Zeit fuer eine neue Challenge fuer The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog. Unser Theme ist FRUEHLING! Wir haben zwei Sponsoren fuer diese Woche. Dr. Digi's House of Stamps und Inky Impressions

My card is made with an image of Dr. Digi's House of Stamps and the name is Deirdery's Day Off.

I tried something new with this card! I did paper piercing for the first time! I printed the stamp on my pink paper and then cut out the bathing suit. I colored the rest of the image just like normal. I did add some lines with colored pencil to give it some shadows.   

Ich habe etwas Neues mit dieser Karte ausprobiert! Ich habe den Stemple auf buntes Papier ausgedruckt und dann habe ich den Badeanzug mit der Schere herausgeschnitten. Mit einem Malstifft habe ich dann noch eine paar Schatten eingemalt. Den Rest des Stempels habe ich dann ganz normal ausgemalt.    

Here is the list of Copics that I used:
Hier ist die Lister der Copics die ich nenutzt habe:

Skin/Haut: E00, E11, E13, E15
Hair/Haare: N1, N3, N5, C7
Umbrella/Schirm: BG000, BG01, BG02, BG05, Y32, Y35, Y38
Towel/Handtuch: V20, V22, V25, V28, BV08
Chair/Stuhl: E42, E43, E44, E47
Table/ Tisch: E51, E53, E55
Grass/Gras: YG91, YG93, YG95, YG97, G99

And some more pictures, how the card was created. At first I was not sure how I was going to tackle this image but I am pleased with the outcome.

Und noch ein paar Bilder wie diese Karte hergestellt wurde. Am Anfang fusste ich nicht wie ich diesen Stemple anfangen sollte, muss aber sagen das ich zufrieden bin wie dieses herausgekommen ist.
