Pix's Bauble

Hello there, today I have a card to share inspired by the colouring of Maxx Stephen. I found him via Stephanie Klauck who has been doing some amazingly stunning colouring with pencils recently. One of the things that caught my eye was creating a sparkly effect with Spica glitter pens and a white gel pen. I thought I would have a go myself.

I started off by taking a piece of white cardstock and stamping the bunny with the bauble from the Mama Elephant Pix's Happy Holiday stamp set. I then stamped the sentiment, from the Mama Elephant Mini Messages set above. The image was coloured with Copic Markers (colours used listed below the supplies section). I then added dots of glitter using two shades of pink Copic Spica pens. I also added dots using a white Sakura Gelly Roll pen. I also add some dots to the ribbon on the bauble with purples.

I decided to make a square card so I cut the panel down using a SSS Stitched Square die. I took a white 4x4" white card base and added a sheet of paper from the Doodlebug Frosty Friends paper pad (sadly now discontinued). The image panel was then adhered on top with foam tape. To finish off, I added black glaze pen to Pix's eyes.

  1. Oh I've been loving Stephanie's colouring lately and I have yet to check out Maxx Stephen's work - I suspect it is amazing. I love what you've done to the bauble, it adds so much to it. You can get this just from dots! Well if it was good enough for Seurat and French Impressionists, it's good enough for us! Super cute image. Xx

  2. I'm absolutely in love with this card! And, I too started following Maxx Stephen because of Stephanie. What an amazing artist! You did a fabulous job my friend!
