Cute as a button

Hi Everyone, so Ive had a month off blogging and entering competitions but I could miss out on the cute as a button monthly challenge.  So many uses for this little lady and the turtle reminded me of Nemo.  

I have primarily coloured her in copics with a bit of extra depth using prismacolor pencils and used the background i have learnt in a Kit and Clowder class.  The paper is old stock with stampin up pool party along with the anchor stamp, the fun in the sun was from a magazine.  On her goggles I decided to attempt a reflection, I'm nut sure you can really see it in the pictures and maybe just makes her goggles look darker.  

 Thanks for stopping by xx

Aurora Wings - Crown of Roses 

Hi guys, I've had this image for a while but never quite felt confident enough to try the roses, I decided to just go for it as ive been practising with prismacolor pencils lately and trying different papers out.  This was a pastel paper and i was not 100% happy with the finished image as was a bit rough tooth for my choice.  I have used very minimal embellishments are wanted the roses to pop.  No glitter this time very plain the pattern paper is stampin up old stock along with the emblishemnts which are new.  The papers are perfect plum and pacific point.  I have used a really old stamp inside and aged this to match the roughness of the paper on the cover. xx

Hi guys, its been a while since I have posted, real life has got in the way of my hobby so making a effort to catch up today.

Todays image in the elegant blue sea illusion, i am slowly getting the hang of prismacolor pencils and which papers to use etc, this is quite a rough tooth paper designed for pastels and I just used the back.

Ching-Chou Kuik - Sinking Moon

Good morning my crafty friends.  I decided to have a play with the gorgeous mermaid after watching one of our awesome WA sunsets over the indian ocean.  I certainly did not do the real thing any justice in my colouring but as a first attempt didn't think i managed too bad :) but have since watched a gazillion tutorial and know next time will be so much better.  sorry for the overexposure of the picture was taken pretty early in the morning and sun was glaring.  I have coloured her using copic makers and decorated in liquid pearl with a wink of stella in clear, and liquid pearls.  The embellishments are all eBay and the papers are all stampin up in Denim Dapper and calypso coral.  It was fun to try something new. 

Entered into the following challenges:

Ching-Chou Kuik - Golden Promises

So I love my matching papers, ribbons and patterns and stampin up has released this new set of wonderful colours, matching ribbons, designer papers and embellishments and as soon as i saw them this gorgeous elf jumped straight into my head.  I had a vision that i wanted to achieve, I love the colours in this and amazingly nearly had the exact match in copics.  It doesn't show up very well but I dabbed a little bit of gold ink around the background and across the flowers using a sponge.

Mothers day class

Last weekend I held a few classes for mothers day, one for adults 2 for children.  The kids were all girls and were aged between 10 and 14, what a laugh they had and they all went home with a card and a little note book covered for their mums.  I snuck in a happy birthday shaker card as well to show the girls how versatile the paper is.

Here are some of my pics from the weekend.  We used Stampin up Falling in love designer papers with the love heart embossing folder.  

The card colours are: very vanilla, soft sky, blushing bride and sahara sand which match the patterns, varies embellishments and ribbons all from stampin up.  And the final picture was the end one of the kids sessions, took me a while to clean up :)

Aurora Wings - Petals in the Wind

For this image I decided to go monochrome, I used 3 copics in the same colour family and 4 prismacolor pencils again in the same family.  The image is so detailed that I thought the simpler the better.  Was a challenge but Im happy with how it came out.  I haven't used any embellishments at all as wanted the focus purly on the image.  Thanks for stopping by, Lynsey xx

Scrappers Delights - Genie

For my monthly inspiration card I picked a pretty little genie, and it happened to co inside with the promotion so have a look at the side bar for the link to the shop.  I have coloured her with copics and prismacolors and used my favourite papers at the moment of stampin up falling in love.  The sentiment is liliofthevalley and punched out with stampin up punch.

Im loving the way to do this background, i coloured using copics in the same colours as the papers and then dropped alcohol over with a eye dropper, matches the bokeh.  Have a great day my crafty friends xx

Scrappers Delights - DT Project - Need Hugs Giraffe

Giraffes have been in the news quite a lot lately with the live feed of the new baby so I thought I would make a giraffe theme card, my husbands cousin is having a baby boy so as soon as I saw this giraffe I had the image in my head of what I wanted to create. 

I have coloured him using copic markers and prismacolor pencils.  I have used a few stampin up products and some old kaiserkraft papers.  I would not normally put these colours together but really think they match the giraffe.  

I hate embellished with liquid pearls and a lilyofthevalley stamp, pushed out with stampin up punches.

Aurora Wings - Tempest

Wow this was a challenge, a ice wall??? Ok googled some images and hoped for the best.  This entire image was a challenge as so much background detail, it was for my husbands birthday and was always going to be a picture not a card.  I have coloured using nearly every single copic marker and prismacolor pencil I own.  I have used the metallic prisma pencils on the sword and a little bit of wink of stella in the snow.

I find I don't do many man themed but Mr 12 gave this the thumbs up for his dad :)

This is to show it in the man cave in the frame, not a good picture as the light is coming in the back window, I like him having his man cave as it gives me free run on all my hours of crafting ;)

Ching Chou-Kuik - Magic Wish

This lovely lady was a little bit of a experiment on mixing colours, going over blues with pale peaches and making a orangey peachy colour.  I loved the colour it came out as although may have been better to photograph on white background.  I was trying to match calypso coral from stampin up which is in the papers and card and ribbon.  All embellishments form eBay

Molly Harrison - Easter Fairy

For this card I have used no embellishments what so ever, very unusual for me but there is so much detail in the card I didn't want to loose that by adding anything else for your eye to draw to.  I had so much fun colouring this gorgeous rabbit and really practising my texture.  

I have coloured using copic markers and prismacolor pencils, which I have been loving to bring out some more depth in the colours.

After I had so much fun with the other steampunk image I had to have a go at the wing mechanisms on Dark Angel.  Such amazing detail.

Lahla Three Little Birds - Faeryink

I love these images from faeryink, they are so magical and fun to colour.  I also find the generosity of site owners who give freebies to followers the ultimate best because like most of us in life I have a limited craft budget.  

Lahla has been coloured using copics, and matching up to the colours of the kaiserkraft and stampin up papers.  The back paper has a very light music sheet pattern which is very romantic.  I have used embellishments for eBay which mach up to the colours lovely,  and inked the edges of the image to match the clouds on the backing papers, hope you like her xx

Aurora Wings - Sprite Delight

This month on aurora wings challenge blog they are giving away this free digi, so I felt a very strong urge to colour her and submit her into the blog challenge :)

Aurora Wings - Gardenia

Paper Nest Dolls - Chick Chick

Today I have the absolute pleasure to be guest designer for Paper Nest Dolls.  This is a family run business and all the hand drawn designs are based on the families 6 children.

This gorgeous young lady was a pleasure to colour and I really went to town with making sure I made her bright and fresh.

I have coloured her in using copic markers.  The embellishment is Liliofthevalley and a stampin up punch used along with the paper colours pink pirouette and bashful blue.  I had some bashful blue ribbon stashed away so used that as well.  The egg paper is from old stock and I made the egg in the background using a oval die and perfect plum paper.

The embellishments used are from local shops and the chicks have a touch of wink of stella along with all the love hearts in the picture.  

The second image I had the privilege of colouring is Bunny Girl, again she was coloured with copics.  This time I have gone for a shabby chic feel to the card which also has a detachable bookmark.

The papers are stampin up pear pizazz and blushing bride with matching ink pads along with soft suede.  The embelishemtns are locally sourced.  Close up on the bunny I have used glossy accents on his nose and the spots in his ears.  I used wink of stella in clear on his tale and the flowers on the egg.

Hope you like these images and the cards I have made, thanks for visiting, hugs, Lynsey xx
