Guest at Yana Smakula

Hello Friends,

Today I have something very very special to share. My very talented, and all-so-sweet-inside-out- team mate, Yana asked if I liked to guest at her YouTube channel. She asked if I would like to make a tutorial on colouring and of course I said yes! I'm always happy to help!

If you want to see my tutorial, please head over her blog or to her YouTube channel. If you haven't subscribed her channel yet, you should. :) She posts videos regularly and they are so easy to follow. Just love her work and I'm so honoured and thrilled to be in the same team with her! 

Here's the card that I made for the guest video. I made a similar one on my focus post Altenew a couple of days ago, but in this I used coloured pencils over the copics. Hopefully you'll like it! 









Supplies:
Stamps: Painted Butterflies, Birthday Greetings and Botanical Garden from Altenew.
Inks: Frosty Pink, Fayred Leaf and Buttercream Altenew Crisp Inks, Versafine Onyx Black, Shabby Shutters Distress Ink
Paper: Canson Bristol 250gms Smooth Card Stock, a stripe of green textured card stock
Sequins: Lime Sorbet and Lemon Meringue Sequins from Pretty Pink Posh, Clear SSS Sequins

  1. Hello Marika: This card is beyond gorgeous, I love it when you do your NO LINE coloring, it's always stunning.
    I was wondering if you could tell me how you ink up your stamp so the lines wont be seen? In this case, did you ink it up with a soft yellow or a soft green or neither.
    Thank you so much for sharing your absolutely breathtaking card.
    Hugs,
    Maria.

    1. Hi, Maria! So sorry that I hadn't have time to answer earlier to your question. I used Buttercream (light yellow) and Frayed Leaf (light green) inks to stamp the flowers. I have video on this on Yana's YouTube channel, it may also be helpful to see how the lines are hidden. Hopefully this helps and thank you, Maria, for always being so kind. I have snail mail leaving for you, hopefully it finds its way to you this time!

  12. Mind blown! Your photography analogy is perfect, Marika! I use Adobe to add brightness, bump up the medium tones, and deepen shadows - you, my friend have that ability right in your finger tips! Gorgeous card ... OUtstanding video, as always! xxoo

  19. Hei Marika!
    Mulla on ollut tämä Sinun blogisi oman blogini kaverilistassa vaikka kuinka kauan. Olen aina ihaillut upeita korttejasi ja sitä tekniikkaa jolla niitä teet.
    Nyt vasta oikein ajatuksen kanssa rupesin käymään blogiasi läpi ja toinen toistaan upeampia kortteja tuli näkyviin.
    Ihailen sitä tyylikkyyttä ja näkemystä mikä niistä löytyy.
    Juuri se ettei kortteja tarvitse tupata täyteen kaikenmaailman härpäkettä, kukkia ym koristeita.
    Omat korttini ovat juuri niitä perinteisiä koristepläjäyksiä.
    Sain valtavan inspiraation kokeilla itsekin tuollaista hillitympää.
    Kiitos inspiraatiosta ja hyvää talven jatkoa ja lisää kauniita kortteja!
