Paper Nest Dolls - Heart Apron 

This month I have the lovely pleasure of being guest designer for 2 projects for the Paper Nest Dolls. The images available are totally and utterly adorable and based on the artists children.

I have coloured this cute pie in copics and used some papers I had lying around, all emblishements from eBay apart from the ribbon and the pink paper which are stampin up.

This card is already in the mail for a little girl who just had brain surgery on a fb page I follow so I'm sure she will like it.  You can't see on the picture all the wink of stella which is on the flowers, wooden hears and all the hearts in the image.

Polka doodles - Red Riding Hood 

Hi guys, well I have been working on this a while and can now only post it as it has been given, I made this for a gorgeous friend who is as mad about fairy tales as we are, we are all Once upon a time fans.  It is completed in copics and black prismacolor pencil.  The folds in the cape took me about 3 hours along, I kept having to hold it at arms length to make sure I could see all the shadows etc.  

The frame is what I gave it in but my measurements were slightly off with printing and I had to cut some off, the next size up showed the border.  

Have a good week everyone xx

Scrappers Delights - Winter Solstice

This is the new release from Scrappers Delights and she was awesome to colour.  Lots of hair to tackle.  Im still practising on paler colour but had picked the papers who knew my colour scheme before pen colour.  

Copics used on the main picture with a liliofthevalley sentiment and stampin up cardstock and pattern paper.  The embellishments are memory box.  There is some wink of stella on the flower but you can't see from the photography angle.  

I have used white gel pen to add some snow.  Have a great week my lovelies xxx

Ching-Chou Kuik - Orchid in Spring 

Today I have been doing more practice on my prismacolor pencils.  They are so different from markers and i find take twice as long but I'm loving the journey of learning.  This gorgeous lady is representing spring, which is new beginnings, new growth and for us in Australia usually getting out of the rain and starting down the beach again.  Although were still in the heat of summer we had a few wet days which did remind me just of spring as all the grasses started turning green again.

I have kept this image simple (very unusual for me ;)) with just some liquid pearls.  The pattern paper is kaiserkraft and card stock stampin up in Pink Pirouette and bashful blue.  Happy weekend xxx

Paper Nest Dolls - Wedding Couple.

This is the second custom wedding card I have made with this image and love love love it.  The colours were picked especially to match up with the wedding party colour scheme, and luckily stampin up does matching papers, inks, ribbons, embellishments etc.

I have colour matched my copics, to match in with the colour scheme.  The hair is matching to the couple and was my first attempt at ombre.  The flowers are from eBay and the letters are again stampin up.

Thanks for stopping by and happy weekend my lovelies xx

The East Wind 

I adore this artist, I do spend some time looking at them going how am I going to do this lol.  This card was specifically designed for my nieces 21st birthday and I wanted to incorporate the charms so was easier to post than a parcel.  

I have coloured with copics in a very different style to my normal and really tried to stay to light colours.  I see so many people doing "dainty" colouring and really wanted to give it a go, Im happy with the results.  I have used stampin up card in chocolate chip and pretty in pink.  The backing paper is from kmart and was floating around the craft room, the embellishments are all eBay and the ribbon stampin up as well.  

You can't see but the glasses, watch and top of the flask have glossy accents to give a glass and shiny look.

Well, thanks for stopping by lovely crafters xxx

Happy weekend everyone, here in Australia it is spring so I wanted to compete in some challenges which are mainly all Autumn but using a image which is quite vibrant and reminded me of spring.  Hence this image in Autumn reds and oranges.

Hi guys happy weekend, its coming round quick now will all be

Winnie is coloured completely in copics and massive use of my black pen which is not normally used.  Thanks for swinging by.

The Paper Shelter - So Pretty

Good morning my crafty friends.  So I love vintage, I love distressed and I had great fun making this card for a special birthday.  I have coloured using a combination of copics and prismacolor pencils as I didn't have the copic colours I wanted so topped up the colour.  I have used some old kaiserkraft papers I had hiding around and stampin up cardstock.  The vintage edges are a eBay find and the post card is kmart.  I have embellished with a little spotty ribbon, liquid pearls and heat embossed frantage.

Aurora Wings - Little Elf

How to tell I had the day off work, 3 blog posts in a day after nearly 2 months off, so sorry for inundating you all ;)  I love this little sprite (anything fairy really) love all mythical and magical things.  It took me a while to start this as she's a little intimidating with all the small details.  

I have mixed copic and prismacolor again.  The papers are stampin up in crumb cake and bashful blue (R) and some old DSP, the ribbon is from a gift I bought from a shop and kept the ribbon after gift giving.  The background is sponged using the scalloped cutter and stampin up tempting turquoise ink.  There is very few embellishments on this card and feel the picture itself is enough.

Julia Spiri - The Fantasy Hat 

Some of you will know by know that I love love love steampunk.  I love the grungy look and all sorts of cogs and watches etc, so this was such a fun project to colour.  

I have done a mixture of copics and prismacolours for this picture which i think helped create intensity, I was quite happy to not have a smooth blend on the hat and background.  The cogs were done with dies on gold paper and I sponged in black stayz on.  The actual metal cogs were from eBay.

the card is stampin up basic grey and the ribbon is cherry cobbler.

Ching-Chou Kuik - Squirrel land toadstool

Good morning my crafty friends.  So today was my day off from work, dogs got walked dinner prepared, putting off doing some extra study, so popped on Facebook and saw the challenge over at Ching-Chou Kuik for Once upon a time.  In our house every saturday night, we get ready for bed about 5ish (party animals I know) we usually have pizza or something else that doesn't require cutlery and snuggle in front of the tv for Once Upon a Time, were at season 4 at the moment and our little family is loving this tradition.  So as soon as I saw the challenge I thought of Zelina.

She is coloured using all copics and a little bit of black pencil to add extra shading.  This is my first time doing a coloured skin so was great fun.  White gel pen was used for the stars and on the mushrooms.

I have used stampin up papers in Tangerine Tango and Not quite Navy (R).  The ribbon is matching and the leaves are from the new set of Colourful seasons, which I also used the die to create the scalloped bottom, then attached black gems.

Thanks for stopping by, hope you like her xx

Cute as a button - Progressive Freebie challenge - August

This was fun, as soon as I saw the flying nun I started singing sister act, a sound of music, so knew I had to do some kind of music theme.  

I coloured her up first using copics and the background from this months kit and clowder class then found some old stampin up papers with the clouds and the marina mist coloured card and ribbon.  The sentiment is a scrappers delights from the christmas elf last year and the heart is a kmart stamp given to me by a friend. 

Hope you like her and I wonder will she make you sing? <3

Ching-Chou Kuik - Aurora Woods.

This month the challenge on the Ching-Chou Kuik is faces of the world, I pretty stuck in my ways with my skin tones as only have a limited number of pens but grabbed the copic skin colour pack which has different tones to what I would normally use and just used these.  I tried the background from this months kit and clowder class.  Added some white gel pen and a few dies from the new stampin up seasonal layers.  

The papers are stampin up Early expresso on the tree branch and the background paper is perfect plum.  The snow flake paper is about 10 years old and no idea where from ;)

Paper Nest Dolls - Wedding Couple

This gorgeous little couple was created for a special order from a friend.  The wedding is in Bali so I googled the resort and looks like it has beautiful gardens and lots of frangipanis so hence the colour scheme.  Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils.  I have utilised this months kit and clowder colouring class with the grass and last months with the dress folds and sequins.  I have not really done a ivory dress before so was very different.

The paper stock is mostly stampin up with matching ink in Daffodil delight and Regal rose (R).  The frangipani flowers and card is from old stash.  Stampin up diamonds and ribbon used.  Inside is Floral phrases and Elements of Style (R).  The card is massive and measures  20 cm x 20 cm so good job they are going to the wedding and not posting.  

Thanks for stopping by, see you next time xx
