All dressed up - Christmas Hair

Sorry for blasting you all with my posts this weekend, Im have a massive catch up on half finished projects and making sure Im active after a few sedative months :)  

I love this cutie, I have coloured her in copics and used a kaiserkraft DSP.  Stampin up wisteria wonder cardstock and ink for the stamp, which is Liliofthevalley.  The die is memory box, the lace and snowflake from supplies.  Lots of wink of stella again but doesn't photograph very well. 

I would say this is my last post this weekend, but depends how long I let the kids play Xbox ;)

Hugs, Lynsey xx

Aurora Wings 

I have coloured this image quite a few times for different themes, I have done a woodland elf, a breast cancer elf and now a snow queen.

Im sure you can tell its one of my favourite images and was one of the first I ever coloured.  I have used copics with a lot of wink of stella which is not visible.  Stampin up cardstock in not quite navy and sweet sugarplum, both retired.  

The dies are cut on stampin up glimmer papers and are memory box.

Happy weekend my lovely crafters xx

Cute as a Button - Fly Fishing

Hi everyone, well what a busy weekend Im having catching up on putting all my colourings into cards.  This cutie guy was made for a work colleague who was not well, he's a red haired fisherman so of course I had to match the boy to him.  He loved it.  I have coloured with copics and sponged the background in inks.  I used a stampin up punch to make the clouds.  I have used stampin up liquid glue to make the water droplets.  Stampin up cardstock used to match the sponged background.

Thanks for stopping by, Lynsey xx

Molly Harrison - Fairy and Dragon

There is often a theme of the mythical in my colourings, I adore all kind of magical and mythical images and books, this gorgeous Molly Harrison Fairy was so much fun to colour and really pushed skills with skin, hair and clothing.

All coloured with copic markers I used a grey for shadows on her skin which I would not normally do.  I learnt the wings from a kit and clowder class along  with the background and then adapted them as I wanted.  I have mounted this on stampin up elegant eggplant cardstock, it is a large card and I left inside blank and didn't put a sentiment on it as I wanted it to be all about the image.  The highlights in the sky are white gel pen. 

Thanks for stopping by my crafty friends, enjoy your weekend xx

Christmas in July - Faery Ink

Hi everyone, Im going to spend the next few days catching up on 2 months worth of blogging so apologise if you get spammed.  

Christmas in July is here and I wanted to show you one of my favourite artist drawings of this gorgeous faery elf.  I have coloured her in cops and used the wing technique learnt in a online class from kit and clowder.  

The papers are all stampin up in real red and crumb cake along with the sentiments and punch, the gems are coloured to match the tree in copics.  The gingerbread man was from a magazine.

Paper Nest Dolls - Bubble Bath Emma

Hi everyone, hope most of you are enjoying some lovely sunshine, here on the west coast of WA were having major storms and floods so this image is quite appropriate.  

I have printed the digi stamp and coloured in using copics,  I knew which papers I wanted to use as soon as I saw this image and used that to dictate the colour scheme.  

The papers are kaiserkraft and stampin up cardstock in night of navy and sahara sand.  A very old retired brad was used as the hanger.  Its tricky to see but there is lots of wink of stella in the bubbles and glossy accents to make them shimmer and shine.

You can grab Emma here on this link:

Cute as a button - Good Soil

Hi everyone, today is my second post as guest designer for Crafty Catz and I have chose my mothers day card to show you all.  It is a cute as a button image, and she's adorable.  I have coloured using copic markers.  All papers are stampin up in blushing bride and wisteria wonder, the DSP is delightful daisy.  I have matched the leaves in the colours in the DSP which are soft sky and tranquil tide.

All the flowers are from various shops and eBay and the sentiment is liliofthevalley.  I have used nuvo drops to decorate this and glossy accents on the soil.

Hope you like her and all the mothers out there have a fabulous day tomorrow, its also little Mr's 14th birthday, so I said as my mothers day present my kids can clean their rooms today while I do a little blogging.

Hugs Lynsey xx

My creative scoop - Unicorn

Hi crafty friends, today I wanted to share a card I made on request for a first birthday, the photo is not amazing as it was so heavy to stand up, looks slightly lop sided on the photo but wasn't too noticeable lol.  I have coloured the unicorn with copics, and cut out to enable the shaker background to be made.  Stampin up cardstock, dies and punches used and liliofthevalley designer papers.  Lots of glitter applied as well.

Stampin up - No bones about it

I love this set, its one that I skipped past in the book until I got a request for some more boy cards.  What great fun stampin on accertate, stayzon used.  All card stock stampin up, with matching inks.  I did this for the kids class and they loved it. 

For the circle cut card we used vellum which took a while to dry but I still liked the effect 




Stampin up - Foxy Friends

I had lots of packs left over from the last few classes so have made them all up using all stampin up products, after a few foxes and wanted a change and used a few of the retired stamp sets in cup cake and by the seashore.

I stuck to the same colours of Calypso coral, pool party, island indigo and silver slate xx

Connie Fong - Leilani

Hi everyone, thanks for stopping to have a look at this gorgeous little lady.  She is so good to practice those hair strokes on.  I have coloured her using copic markers with a hint of black pencil (lesson learnt from Alyce kit and Clowder, to add a touch more shading).  I have used some old dsp from stampin up along with there card stock, punch and sentiment.

The flowers are from I am Roses and the ribbon and dies from craft online.  

Have a fabulous week my crafty friends xxx

Aurora Wings - dandelion sprite

Its been a while since I have coloured up one of these gorgeous little things, and I wanted to do something a little more darker with out going really gothy lol, I have used copic markers and a very natural colour tone, I coloured before I picked the backing papers which I dont usually do, so next time I would go a lot darker on the sprite if using this dark background.  

I have used stampin up card stock and kaiskerfraft dsp.  The stamp believe, is lavinia stamps.  Liquid pearls and skeleton leaves to add a bit of texture.

Happy weekend my lovely crafters.
