Underwater Playground

Hi All,

Well I had so much fun making this one, I forgot to take note of all the products used ... whoops!!
The image is from the fabulous Jade Dragonne, http://jadedragonne.deviantart.com/ I coloured this one up a few months ago using copics, and a few prisma's just to help create the background.

I made the larger shells and star fish using martha stewart paper clay and some shell molds I bought forever ago to make a pearl wedding anniversary cake. ... i found some tiny shells off an old necklace, I created the seaweed using a spellbinders die and blue tissue paper, which I then added a little distress ink to to make it variegated. I then added some glitter flakes around the shells, again to add to the appearance of the seaweed

I really had a blast making this one, hope you all like it too.

Thanks for popping by

Little Red Riding Hood

Hi All .... This card has taken me a total of 4 evenings to create, honestly I am so slow, it took me 2 evenings to colour the image, and then 2 evenings to make the card, sometimes I think it takes me more time to decide what I am doing than anything else!!  ... LOVE this image its a fab digi from Hannah Lynn., I have coloured using copic's.

I was going for layers of foliage to try and create the depth of a forest. First I stamped with my Kanban flourish stamp and heat embossed with black embossing powder. Then I framed using HOTP - Swirling vine, Spellbinders - Cherry blossom and the little butterflies are a memory box die.

A Little Note of Thanks

Hi All,

This is a little thank you card I have made for my sisters, using a My Besties image .... I have loved these images forever, however I have only just got round to purchasing some in the last few months, I really enjoyed having a play with this one.

I have coloured this one using my trusty copics.

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Lips - R89, R29, R20
Hair - E29, E25, E21, R22, R20
Dress&Shoes G85, YG09, YG07, YG05, YG00, Y000
Socks&Bow C7, R89, R85, R83, R81
Flowers- C5, RV29, RV23, RV21 Centers - E15, Y17, Y14, Y02

I tried adding a watercolour background, however I wasn't thrilled with how it turned out so I added a a little Picket Fence distress ink, and added some stamping round the edges with my trusty Kanban Flourish stamp.

I have teamed it up with some papers from Bo Bunny - A gift of love
The sentiment is paper expressions
and I have added some Anita's Dimensional stickers ( not really my style now .... I think die cuts have moved us all away from using stickers, but I really need to to use up some of my HUGE stash!! )

Hello Hello

Hi All,

Thourally enjoyed making this one. The image is from tiddly inks and I used my copic's to colour her up.

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair - W9, W7, W5, W3,W1
OutFit - C5, R59, R29, R27, R22
Pen and Boots - C10, C7, C7, C5, C3, C1

I made an envelope using the WRMK punch board and then I made a little card and glued it inside, the cream card has been stamped with a script stamp from Bo Bunny and the Hello sentiment is a Anna Griffen stamp. The papers are from Paper a.t.d - story of us & Anna Griffen.

The little bow was actually a tiny headband that came with an outfit for my daughter when she was a baby, however I wasn't into putting stuff in her hair so it found its way in my craft stash.

Copic Journal

Hello All,

Well as you all know I have been taking the Kit and Clowder classes, I have completed the skin and hair one and I am almost done on the clothing one too ... In the classes Alyce encourages us to keep a copic journal, I so see the value in that, but as yet I have not yet started one, .... so this is me getting started.

The image is Saturated Canary image and surprisingly enough I have coloured her with copic's .. LOL

Skin - E000, E00, E21, E11, E04, R20
Hair - E47, E19, E17, E13, E11
Apron - 100, BG09, BG05, BG02, BG01, BG000
T-Shirt - 100, B39, B37, B34, B32
Stripy top - B97, B95, B93, B91
Trousers - 100, C10, C7, C5, C3, C1

This journal was a lot simpler, but I had issues with a rub on and damaged the image :-( .... So I had to embellish further to cover it up, I think it was a happy accident, as I prefer it, I dont know I think I quite like journals that look busy :-)

Products used:

Blank Journal - hobby craft
Red Card - Co-ordinations
Teal paper - DCWV/going green
Polka Dot lettering and Tag - Daisy D's - Lullaby collection
Letters - Basic Grey
Dies - X cut and Sissex
