Faery Ink - Demera Snow Whisper

Hi everyone, today Im showing you a card I made using a image I've had for a while.  I always had a idea what I wanted to do with this but was always thinking I wanted to do a different skin tone, then the colours just came together.

She is coloured with copics, and liberally coloured with wink of stella, I have used the same tones on her hair, wings and skin just went a little heavier with the hair.  The dies are memory box of the deer and the snowflakes and glitter paper all stampin up.  The card stock is whisper white and highland heather.   The DSP is from some very old pad.

Enjoy the weekend my crafty friends, Lynsey xx

Hannah Lynn - Angelfish


Hi everyone, I coloured this a while ago for the Facebook challenge in the Hannah Lynn colouring group of alternate skin tones, but I have only just decided how to make it up to a card.

I have coloured all with copics, and mounted on stampin up cardstock in garden green and cherry cobbler.  The DSP is very old and retired in more mustard.  I have coloured the pearls with my copics to mach the colour scheme and added some ribbon from the craft room.

Its a little different as wanted to go a bit more "darker". 

Thanks for stopping by my crafty friends.

Paper Nest Dolls - Hat Shopping Emma

HI everyone, today I would like to show you the most cutest image of Hat Shopping Emma, she was so much fun to colour.  I have coloured using copic markers and Im still practising colouring in pastel colours, I have used wink of stella on her bows on her hat and box and on her shoes.  

The paper is kaiserkraft, with white and mint macaron cardstock from stampin up.  The brad is a old retired stampin up one as well.  The lace is from spotlight along with the white flowers.

Were just about to head into spring here in Australia and it was a lovely sunny day I completed this image which obviously influenced my mood after quite a few heavy storms. 

Hope you enjoyed visiting, hugs Lynsey xx

Ching-Chou Kuik - Magic Wish

Hi everyone, I started colouring this image with copics, just on her face and then thought I wanted to take it a little darker so stayed in monotone for the whole image.  I really like how it turned out with the purple/silver style.  The cardstock is kaiserkraft and the card colour is stampin up wisteria wonder (R) and basic black.

The ribbon and sequin trim are from my local spotlight.  Again, lots of wink of stella in her hair and on the tale, and liquid pearls used.

Have a lovely day my crafty friends, Lynsey xx

I am clearly making a start this year on my Christmas cards, using loads of supplies from the craft room up as well.  Today I have coloured these adorable mice using copic markers.  I have added wink of stella to the lanters and the mice's faces where snow would be melting and used glossy accents on the ground to show melted snow.  The snow added is white gel pen.  

The papers are last years stampin up DSP with garden greens and cherry cobbler card.  Stampin up basic black ribbon and embellishments from some hidden cupboard.

Have a great day my lovely crafters, Lynsey xx

Cute as a Button - New years eve

Hi everyone, I actually coloured this image up quite a while ago but was really confused as what to do with the background, that is until my friend posted a picture with a image on where she had used the stampin up star stamp and then I realised what I wanted to do, achieving it was another issue, but the idea came together and Im quite happy with it.

Coloured all in copic markers, I have used the alcohol drop technique on the background with the mentioned stamp and loads of wink of stella in her hair etc.  Glossy accents attached to her eyes, lips and champers.

Lace and sequins from spotlight, kaiserkraft silver paper and stamping up real red and basic black card used.

Thanks again Louise ;)

Cute As A Button - Kindergarten

Hi everyone, this was my card for the Cute as a button Facebook progressive challenge.  She's sooo cute, I have coloured her in copic markers, and used glossy accents on her shoes and eyes and the penguins eyes.  I have coloured her ribbon and the penguins tummy with wink of stella.

I have used stampin up cardstock in whisper white and bashful blue (R) and some old retired DSP.  The die is from kaiserkraft and the ribbon kaszazz.  The buttons are found in my craft room.

The sentiment is Liliofthevalley and the punches used to border are stampin up (R).

Thanks for having a look, have a lovely weekend my crafty friends.  Lynsey xx

Aurora Wings - Pansy

Hi everyone, today I would like to show you Pansy by Aurora Wings, I have coloured this a couple of times and its always a favourite when Im looking for a feminine card.  I have matched my copic colours to the paper colours which is a kaiserkarft DSP.  I have used stampin up Sahara Sand and Mint Macaron as the base colours.  The brad is a retired SU and the lace and liquid pearls from spotlight.  

There is a touch of wink of stella in he butterfly and centre of the pansy which never photographs well. 

Have a lovely week my crafty friends, xxx

Paper Nest Dolls - Nurse Emma with Teddy

Hi everyone, for my design team project this month I decided to use this adorable little image as I was asked by a lovely friend of mine to make a card for the staff at the nursing home who looked after her father.  The family is all white blonde so that decided on my colour scheme instantly.

I have coloured with copics, and used stampin up cardstock in blushing bride and baja breeze (R) with kasierkraft DSP.  I had added white gel pen as the accents, some brad from old stock and lace.  There is wink of stella on her hat and the bears heart which never photographs well and glossy accents on the bears nose and eyes and Nurse Emmas eyes. 

You can pick up the image here on the link.
