I was so excited when I heard the little thud of the post arriving, I wasn't expecting my goodies from the HOS to arrive so soon.....
I have to warn you this is quite a picture heavy post....I have been talking to some bloggy friends, and I realised that in the past I think I was more creative than I am now, I have become quite lazy...and just stamp and colour with my copics....they are great and I am not knocking them in the slightest I LOVE them!!!.....so I want to go back to my roots and play a bit more.
So when the Lovely Faith arrived through my door I thought It was the perfect opportunity to experiment as I don't really have any images like this and I was not sure what would suit her best, so I dug out every colouring medium I have and had a play......now most of these I am not comfortable with so the fact that all the images look reasonably ok, is just a testimony to how fabulous these images are so without further ado:
This one I stamped with Black Stayzon and coloured with watercolour pencils.
This is my entry for:
Fairytale challenge - Flowers
Paperplay - cutie Patootie
Pennys Challenge - anything goes
Wild orchid Crafts - lets get sentimental
Crafty Card makers - Pencils
This has been stamped with Distress ink Walnut Stain, and I have just dragged in the colour using a water brush and I have added a few highlights using distress ink worn lipstick.
this is my entry for:
My Time to Craft - Spots and Dots
Simon Says Stamp and show - Polka Dots
Raise the Bar - Oh to be a kid again
This has been stamped with Distress Ink faded Jean and again I have just pulled in the colour.
This is my entry for:
Cute Card Thursday - Monochrome
Crafts and me - Monochrome
Papertake weekly - ribbons and pearls
These are the final images...that have not yet been turned into cards......try not to laugh too hard at the pastel option, I have never used them before ..... I bought some pastels when I went to visit Derwant pencils on a holiday to the lakes 3 years ago .... and I was convinced that after visiting the pencil museum that I would take up art again ...... they remained unopened until yesterday!!!!
Thank you so much for looking ............. so, how do you colour yours?
