Julia Spiri - Pirate Scarlett 

Hi guys, well its been a while since I've blogged but wanted to show you my pirate Scarlett by Julia Spiri, I won this image and was very excited as I have a little Miss S who once wanted to be a pirate. She has since moved on to ballerina but love the memories.  

Coloured with copic markers and I have used stampin up card stock in soft sky with some old DSP papers.  We burnt the edges of the treasure map and used a glitter bottle with the map and x marks the spot for the treasure.  

Thanks for swinging by <3 xx

Scrappers Delights - Spring Equinox

Hello there, this time I have the pleasure of sharing with you the lovely spring equinox image which was great fun to colour up just like a bee.  I have coloured using copics and used some very old stampin up designer papers and cardstock.

I have used a old stamp that was from a magazine years ago for the sentiments and punched out.  I haven't used any other embellishments on this as the image is quite large so hope its balanced out enough. 

Dont forget to get your image here:

Make it crafty - Tia Celebrates

This is my first time with a make it crafty challenge and character but totally and utterly love this image.  As soon as I got her I knew she was going to be for my friend Tonya for her special birthday.  I have coloured her in copics and added the balloons and numbers from stampin up punches, the paper is stampin up and matches the copics perfectly. 
She has been given to my friends so now can be blogged and posted without ruining the surprise xx

Paper Nest Dolls - Unicorn Girl

Hi everyone, this is my second week as GT over at Paper nest dolls and this time I have gone all out girly, lots of pink, purple etc... oh and pink diamonds.

I have coloured her in copics and fussy cut out.  Lots and lots of wink of stella over cheeks, tiara, shoes and unicorn although this never photographs well. 

The card is all stampin up in wisteria wonder and bashful blue (retired) and the coloured card is spotlight.  The sentiment is from Liliofthevalley and the ribbon again spotlight.  On her eyes and the unicorns I have used glossy accents, again tricky to see in the picture.

Have a lovely weekend with lots of sparkle and glitter my crafty friends xx

Scrappers Delights - Golfer

Hi guys, today scrappers delights are having a sale on this little guy.  The digi image is available as a girl or boy but I picked boy so the card could be for my son.  Don't forget to swing by the shop.

I have coloured him using prismacolor on crafts card which is the first time I have ever done this and apart from quickly learning how to blend I was pretty pleased with the results.

The paper is some old retired stampin up paper with the new punches and sentiments.  As the paper was so busy I haven't put any embelishemtns or bling etc on the card.

Thanks for stopping by xx

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
