Hello, my dears,
Today it's my turn - Alma - and I want to raise a toast to you!
I fell in love when I saw the funny pigeon from the A toast to you - 3x4 Clear Stamp Set.
And yes... the pigeon should get a lot more toast! So I decided to draw a bread in the background with my Copics.
It's not so hard! Today I'll show you how to do it.
1.) Draw a very, very rough sketch with a pencil, you can then paint over it with the Copics. It is only used for "rough" arrangement. Of course you can also draw more precisely.
2.) Find a lighter and darker Copics color combination. The most important thing is that you work with shading. I opted for a darker Copic combo for the outer edge of the bread. I chose the following color combinations: E18 - E17 - E15 - E13 - E11
The following tones have been selected for the inside of the bread: E57 - E55 - E53 - E51 - E50
The shades harmonize very well together, as you can see.
3.) When you have finished coloring the bread, you can sketch a plate around it with a pencil. I colored it in the colors W5 - W3 - W2 - W1 - W0 - W00
4.) At the end you can set small highlights with dots of the same color tones and a white gel pen. This gives the bread more liveliness and structure.
5.) Now all you have to do is stamp and color the motif. I colored the plumage of the pigeon with B99 - B95 - B93 - B32 - B000 - B0000.
6.) At the end I stamped the text with the stamping tool. Complete!
Can't wait to see your "toasts"!

Hello everyone, it's Karen here again today. I’ve got a fun new card fold idea for you today, using the adorable “Pigeons”stamp set from Gerda Steiner Designs. This is a 5” x 7” card that folds flat, but pops out to create a 3D card when it comes out of the envelope. There’s room on the back of the card to write a message and to decorate if you want. I have to give a shoutout to Sam Calcott of...
