Hi everyone, so for this card I have practiced my background and feather technique.  I have a few smudges but its fine, its all learning.  I have used copics and this adorable image from sweet november.  Sweet November Digital Stamp - Wade  

I have used the colouring animal class from kit and clowder to practice the feathers. Kit and Clowder Class Rooms  I followed a colouring in the 7 kids customer create Facebook group to practice the background on one of Amy Youngs live posts.

Hope you like him, the cardstock is stampin up granny green apple, and daffodil delight, and the stamp is momento black and from eastern promise (SU).

Have a lovely day my crafties.

The Sweet Escape Digis

Hi everyone, today Im showing you a card I made for a friends daughters 16th birthday.  It is a sweet escape digi but I cannot find the name of it, will amend post if someone corrects when its blogged, it was a freebie in one of the kit and clowder promotions.

I have coloured on craft paper using prismacolor pencils and adapted the stamp to look like the recipient.  She is studying make up so I have purposely done a make up look on the image.  


Thanks for stopping by my crafty pals, have a lovely Easter break.

Christine Karron - Water Lily

Hi guys, today I wanted to show you a image I coloured over a about a week.  I have used prismacolor premier on pastel paper.  I am really trying to practice getting some shape to my faces when colouring and using different lighting combos.  I used the originals artist own image as a bit of a guide regarding the colours, the skin colours are very different.  Im very proud of this as when I started I thought oh dear this skin is not going to look good - unless i turn her into a alien lol.  I also got mixed up with hair and lily leaves.  I have posted the progress as I went along to show how it all comes together in the end. 

Have a lovely weekend crafty friends xxxx

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

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,
