A Happy Copic Textural Overload

Oh my goodness.  If there was ever a stamp in my collection that embodies so many fun textural challenges… this is it!

Being Together by Gillian Roberts for Stampavie is such a fun stamp to color.

I made her top a fuzzy sweater.  I made her pants jean-like.  I made that teddy bear fuzzy.  I worked on the wood fence for fun (even added some flicked in grass and a little penwork).  And need I mention how fun the hair was to color?  Pigtails!!


Gasp.  I want to play with it again and again.  And back in the day – this is exactly the kind of stamp I would have avoided like the plague.

Oh, I also threw some R89 on top of the felt heart, which was too bright.

Did I mention how much I love my Copic Markers??

  • Sweater: G21/G24/G82 with blender added with (you guessed it, my sweater!)
  • Jeans: B12/B14/B16/B93. I wanted to match the brighter colors in the papers, so I took creative license with brighter than usual colors. Blender added with (certainly you've figured this out by now, my jean jacket!)
  • Wood / Hair / Teddy Bear: E53/E35/E55/E57/E59.  Lots of flicking, dotting, dabbing.
  • Grass: flicked in with YG03, G24, YG17
  • Shoes, Bow, Hair elastics: R32/R35/R39
  • Background: Flicked in Y000 from the upper right and then filled in all around with BG000.
  • Paper: Vintage CTMH
  • Sentiment Stamp: Stampendous

That was tons of fun.  And a great stress reliever while the plumber was here, fixin' the pipe by the guest bath/laundry room.  Happy to report the drywall damage was very minimal and I'm lucky I caught it when I did.  Not something I would have wanted to wake up to!
