Happy Birdie by RubberMoon

I recently taught a Copic class at The Queen’s Ink featuring this adorable stamp set from RubberMoon Stamps. This is a great set for students who are just starting with Copic coloring because the only technique necessary is basic blending. The stamp set includes one sentiment so I supplemented it with a sentiment stamp set from Penny Black.

I knew that I wanted to use a bright color scheme, but I made these cards in late December, long before the spring product lines were available. So I used traditional plaids and polka dots from Jolly Christmas by Authentique, allowing me to use up a holiday paper stash on spring time cards.

Below are the supplies I’ve used for today’s project. Items marked with an asterisk (*) were provided by a store or the manufacturer for free or at a discount. All other items were personally purchased. Read more.

January Art du Jour at the Queen’s Ink featuring RubberMoon Stamps

I spent last Tuesday at The Queen’s Ink participating in my first Art du Jour. This is an event offered each month where you come by the store, relax, and make a variety of cards, tags, and ATCs. I offered two cards featuring images and sentiments from RubberMoon Stamps. These images are so unique and fun, perfect for cards, art journaling, tags, and other projects. I love the simplicity of the images as well as the paired down font of the sentiments.

I thought my Art du Jour participants might be beginners to Copic coloring so I didn’t do a lot of detail coloring in the faces. Obviously, the quirky nature of these images lend them to more extensive shading around the eyes, but I opted to keep it simple.
