How to Copic Colour Ocean in Real Time – Cards 4 Men + Video!

It’s been coming for a while and today it’s official, I’ve run out of masculine cards in my stash lol.  So that means it’s time for another Cards 4 Men video and today I share some Real Time colouring and a bit more.

I have a few basic rules for my masculine card designs and this one is certainly a lot ‘busier’ than my typical style.  But I also usually like to have a fun element and today i used the Katzelkraft Rat to push the ’60’ off the cliff!

I added a great sentiment from Stamplorations from a set called A Snarky Birthday to You and a blended Mini Cloud background (classic!).

But the focus was really on the Copic ocean that I coloured and you can watch it come together in the video linked below.  I was inspired by this fabulous video HERE.

You can see my video here or Watch it in HD at YouTube.

Do you ‘run out’ of masculine cards like me?  I have thought about this problem a lot and it’s not that I don’t like to make men’s cards, because I do, maybe it’s because I prefer to make cards for women….   flowers, glitter, bling what’s not to love!

I hope you are not too busy heading into the silly season and I also hope that you find maybe just a little bit of time to relax, Hugs

  1. Love this card Therese. This is exactly the type of card my husband prefers to receive. Something with real humour and of course your execution of the subject is absolutely amazing. I really NEED these stamp sets. You are always an inspiration. Thank you ❤️

  2. Such a great card.
    You are not alone there seems to be so many more girly cards in my stash than male ones probably because I have more girly themed stamps/dies/glitter etc and we are a female dominated house! I am hoping to get some crafty time in post christmas – I have a few new parcels this week which include some masculine themed sets (presents for myself!) 😉
    Now while I tidy my desk top so I can get on with some card making I am going to watch your video to see how you created that cool ocean.

  3. Oh my gosh!! what a fun and fabulous card Therese!!! I love, LOVE the Katzelkraft critters and this set is one of my favorites. I have a Triathlon friend who has received quite a few birthday cards made with these rats, he loves them all.
    Your ocean is spectacular and so is the sky, that is one fabulous stencil.
    The sentiment is hilarious, I don’t have any sets with funny quotes like this one and I need to make a sincere effort to make more masculine cards, especially now that all the little boys I knew are now strapping young men, sigh!!
    Thank you so much for sharing.

    1. Katzelkraft images like these are perfect and fun for masculine cards I agree! I’ve seen some fun sentiments from companies like Technique Tuesday, Art Impressions and Hero Arts as well, so they might be worth a look too. Thanks again and Hugs Therese

  4. Love this card design, just the sort my dad would find funny, brilliant video, thank you for doing it in real time as I learn so much. I mix my markers too, copic, spectrum noir, pro markers & altenew.x

    1. I agree, it’s all about the colour with the markers, though I only have the Artist markers and Copics, I have always been tempted to try the others (but tell myself that I don’t ‘need’ any more lol.)

  5. I’m always running out of guy cards. They are always a last-minute creation. Haha. This is fabulously fun. Amazing coloring on that ocean water.

  6. You’ve got the best ideas for men’s cards! I love your ocean water – so fun to see it come to life. Surprisingly, I haven’t had problems coloring with alcohol markers over ink either. Thanks for the great video, Therese!

  7. What a great card. Love the rat! Love the sentiment! Love the copic ocean! Great job! I’m sure your friend will be delighted with his card. Thanks for sharing.
