Blackcurrent Love

Hi All,

Finally got into my loft and got a little more crafting done. I coloured up this tiddly inks image a few weeks ago. I have totally changed the way I craft, I used to always choose a DP then colour to match. Now that colouring has become an obsession I just colour away as the notion takes me and then every so often have a wee session in the loft where I try and make something with my little pile of images ..... yes it does take longer as I have to hunt around for paper that matches, on the upside I am re-discovering paper that I have had in my stash for ages like I did here I found this DCWV paper pad "Black Current" .... considering the match wasn't planed I am really happy with how it turned out. The die's are new to my collection "spellbinders/heartfelt creation - romantic garden" ... It also has matching stamps, so I stamped and embossed the bleeding hearts and the message.

Copic's I used:

Skin: E000, E00, E21, E11, E04 - R20 (blush)
Hair (girl) - E49, E79, E77, E71, RV34
Hair (boy) - W9, W5, W3,W1
Dress - W9, RV99, RV69, RV34, RV06, RV02, RV000
Coat - W9, W5, W3, W1
Trousers/Scarf - BV29, BV25, BV23, B60

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Clear it Out - Anything Goes
Tip Top Tue - 3 or more papers ( 4 papers from DCWV Blackcurrent stack )
Brown Sugar - Anything Goes
Creative Fingers - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes

Marc & Cleo

Hi All,

I know I must be waaaay behind the times, but I have only just discovered The Paper Shelter .... Treated myself to quite a few digi's. This image really appealed to me, maybe because Hubby and I had a Nile cruise a few years ago.

Amazingly this card took me 2 evenings to make ... I got the basic layout that I was happy with (pretty much the one you see now ) I kept trying to add fuss but it just wasn't working so in the end I stuck with C&S

I have Coloured  with copic's

eyes- E00,E97,E59
eyeshadow- YG11, YG95

The card blank is From Kanban (bought years ago, just after that Egypt trip, under the illusion I would scrapbook my photos ) The blue paper is also Kanban, and the red card Cor'dinations.

I created the little embellies using paper clay and Martha Stewart Molds. I coloured with distress ink Antique linen and I used distress marker - Pummis Stone to add the detail.

Sugar Bowl - November Challenge

Hello All,

Its time for another challenge over at the Sugar Bowl. For this card I have used the fabulous Sugar Nellie Stamp - Windswept which you can find other vintage Krista images over at Funky Kits

I really enjoyed colouring this one, playing with techniques I have learned in the Kit and Clowder classes, .... I think Dip Died hair is becoming a bit of a fad for me at the mo!!

I have teamed the image up with some Tilda - Classic papers. The Die is Tim Holtz and I made some paper flowers using paper clay and a WOW silicone mold. I then tinted slightly using distress ink - warm lipstick.

We had so many amazing entries in last months sugar bowl ... I cant wait to see what you inspire us with in the month ahead.

As always thanks for looking

Anne Shirley

Hi All,

I think any long time followers of my blog will know that I am obsessed with the Anne of Green Gables, I have read the books countless times, and have watched the Megan Follows series so much that I can practically quote the whole thing!! ..... So as you can imagine I LOVE this Krafting Kimmie stamp.

I have coloured her up using my trusty copics ... & teamed her with papers from my scrap pile ... The background paper was a little plain so I have overstamped with Bo Bunny stamps to add a little interest, I have used memory box dies ... handmade spiral roses, and added a sprinkling of Frantage.

I found the sentiment on Pinterest it reads:

7 things I learned from Anne Shirley:

1 - Tomorrow is always fresh with no mistakes
2- As bad as one may think Red hair is Green is 10 times worse
3- One Cannot be expected to give up being a little girl all at once.
4- A sense of Humor is vital
5-Never settle for anything less than Gilbert Blythe
6-Riches are great, but the things unseen are what last
7-The world would be very dull if everyone were sensible

Im sure this stamp will be used time and time again :-)

I would like to enter this into this into the following challenges:

Stamping Sensations - Warm Autumn Colours
Crafty Calander - Flowers, Sentiment, Blue
Crafting Musketeeers - Autumn colours
Crafting from the Heart - Anything Goes
Creative Moments - Anything Goes
Alphabet R - round or rectangle

Carousel

Hi All,

Love this image .... this is a card I have made for Granny!! In the summer my little girl had her first experience of rollercoster rides, she had a ride on the carousel with granny ... and the horse they rode on was called Rosie, which is granny's name. So when I saw this gorgeous Tatty Twinkles image, I just HAD to get it.
there
I have coloured this one up using copics. All the papers are from my scrap bag, so there is a little HOTP in there, some Bo Bunny and Echo Park in there.

I would like to add this to the following challenges:

Crafting From The Heart - Anything Goes
Sister Act - Anything Goes
613 Avenue - Anything Goes
