My creative scoop - Unicorn Girl

Hi everyone, today Im showing you a card I made with a free image from my creative scoop.  I was asked to make a card for a friends granddaughter who is 6, so of course I thought of unicorns and glitter.  

I have coloured her all in copics and cut her out.  I have used die scallop squares from stampin up along with their cardstock in wisteria wonder and eggplant both retired.  Im trying to keep using up all my stock to save some pennies lol.  The glitter is just found in the craft room no idea where I bought it.  The paper is from a spotlight scrapbooking pack.

Have a lovely sparkly weekend my crafty friends

The Paper Shelter - Fun and Sun

Hi everyone, today I wanted to show you a finished project from the kit and clowder pencil class of March 2018.  So Im very behind in my pencil practice this is mainly due to the fact pencils take longer to colour than markers.  But well worth the persevering in my opinion.  This is coloured with prismacolor pencils.

Hope you like her its great fun to finish while were in our ozzie summer, and today is Australia Day so perfect for sharing xx

Sweet November - Peppy Penguin

Hi guys, today Im showing you a card I made with a free image from the sweet nevember range.  This is from 7 kids crafts from Facebook.

I am not experienced in creating my own backgrounds but have again been inspired by Amy from the above group to give it a go, I have cased one of her backgrounds as a bit of a guide.  The other backgrounds have been from colouring classes.  

I have used all copics for this image and mounted on stampin up white and wisteria wonder (R) card. I have used a single stamp in the star of light set.  I got the quote off the internet and printed it out.

I also practices in prismacolor pencils but had quite a lot of black transfer so I probably won't make it into a card, but its all practice.

Have a lovely day my crafty friends xxx

Paper Nest Dolls - Nurse Emma

As a nurse this is probably the most produced of all my paper nest dolls images.  Created for a friends birthday using the boldest and prettiest colours I could find I really enjoyed making this card.  

I have coloured her with my pastel copic markers and mounted on stampin up melon mambo and coastal cabana card.  The doily is stampin up as well.  The DSP is a kmart pad and the eblishments and die were eBay.  I have used wink of stella on her hat and the bears heart, and liquid glue on her eyes and the bears and nose.   Hope you like her.  

Click on this link to get her from the shop, happy colouring Lynsey xx

Emmanuelle Colin

This is a image I started colouring a while ago on craft paper which there are a couple of challenges here for me.  One, contouring faces, two, prismacolor pencils, three, craft paper however a little bit of perseverance and I was happy with the finished result.  The images are so gorgeous to practice, there are a few things in learnt along the way and her nose was by far the trickiest for me, meaning I need the most practice in this area.

I was stuck on the flowers but actually used the colours from the kit and Clowder December 2018 class of the crystals and was happy with them. 

Oh, nearly forgot, happy new year my crafty friends, heres to a arty, crafty, growing in our skills 2019

Kit and Clowder - December Pencil Class

Hi everyone, so last year I joined the online colouring classes over at kit and clowder.  During the year I have not completed many of them lol, they are time consuming and I'm always rushing from here to there, however, they are so so good for learning new skills and actually taking time out.  So I have finished this class (over about 6 hours) and plan on doing so every month and during my holidays I will be catching up on previous months as well.

This has been completed in prismacolor pencils on Canson paper, the image is from Connie Fong xx

Paper Nest Dolls - Back to School Ellie

Hi everyone today I wanted to share with you the gorgeous back to school Ellie Digi stamp.  I have made her for a teacher friend.  I have coloured her using copic markers.  

The paper is kaiserkraft DSP and stampin up Cardstock, already printed to I matched my copics to the paper, I had a bathing stamp which I placed around the image.  I have used liquid pearls as accents.  As most of my dolls I always do a liquid glue over the eyes so when you see the card in real life the eyes are always shiny.  I have also applied this to the apple.

If you like the images please pick her up here,
Thanks for stopping by, Hugs Lynsey xx

7 Kids - Store Bundle

Hi guys, well lately I have been very inspired by a artist on Facebook who creates amazing scenes and does so much work with this company, so this was my big challenge to myself, to do a whole scene which actually was not inspired by the kit and clowder classes which is my usual go to.  

This is coloured completely in copic markers and I found a gorgeous frame at my local reject shop.  This will have pride in my christmas decorations.  Its not really aimed at my family but close enough <3.

Thanks for stopping by have a lovely day xxx
