Pastel Copic Coloring With Paper Nest Dolls

 
Hello Crafters! 

I hope you survived your Monday!
I did but barely. 
It is was a day. 

Thankfully I have a wonderful hobby that is filled with super encouraging people and you know that actually helps so much.


Speaking of wonderful craft people I was excited when Christine from Paper Nest reached out to me with these adorable stamps. There are five hippos in the set and I couldn't exclude a single one of them. 
 

I kept the layout super simple on this one and just concentrated on the coloring. The packaging showed these cuties colored up in sweet pastels and I really loved it. 


I know it can be a struggle to get a good dimension while keeping your colors soft so I decided to concentrate on today. 

You can watch the entire card come together in the video below 


I really think adding the heat embossed sentiment on black helped bring the whole design together. The sentiment being stamped down flat on the paper just didn't have the same impact. I do want to add that in the video I said Spectrum Noir are not refillable. When they first came out, which is when I tried them, they weren't refillable. They are in fact refillable. 


Thanks so much for stopping by guys! 
I'll be back soon with another card!

  1. Hi Kelly
    I think what is around the hippos neck may be a bandana. My sister in law also can't say idea but says ideal (I think)
    Your coloring is to die for. Tried to find out where to buy the hippos but could not find the stamps on their site. Are they out yet?

  2. Kelly I just wanted to encourage you when you were talking about your struggle of saying yes to so many things. Get the book by Lysa Terkeurst called The Best Yes; it will help you.

  5. Yes. I'd love to purchase these stamp sets but unable to locate on the online store. I'm in Australia and it's do hard...and expensive...to get a good stamp variety here.

  7. So cute. I love the way you colored them. They are so cute. I too have issues with saying words. my biggest one is "simultaneously" .. trying to tell my phone so I could get the correct spelling took a long time.. LOL. another is "jurisdiction" when I worked for the state before I retired we had to tell callers it's not in our jurisdiction and I just couldn't say the word the way it sounded. I am glad it wasn't something we had to do a lot.

  10. Absolute adorable Kelly, so very sweet those Hippos. I can't think of a word that I can not pronounce at this moment, but there is one for sure. I think everyone has. Thank again for a great card.

  13. So yummy scrummy little hippos, liking the pastel pallet very much. On the subject of words, you are not alone; I can not says synthesizer or xylophone. But I also have, as part of my symptoms, times when words just won't come out and the family all get to play, Guess the word !
