Cute as a button - Progressive Freebie challenge - August
This was fun, as soon as I saw the flying nun I started singing sister act, a sound of music, so knew I had to do some kind of music theme.
I coloured her up first using copics and the background from this months kit and clowder class then found some old stampin up papers with the clouds and the marina mist coloured card and ribbon. The sentiment is a scrappers delights from the christmas elf last year and the heart is a kmart stamp given to me by a friend.
Hope you like her and I wonder will she make you sing? <3
This month the challenge on the Ching-Chou Kuik is faces of the world, I pretty stuck in my ways with my skin tones as only have a limited number of pens but grabbed the copic skin colour pack which has different tones to what I would normally use and just used these. I tried the background from this months kit and clowder class. Added some white gel pen and a few dies from the new stampin up seasonal layers.
The papers are stampin up Early expresso on the tree branch and the background paper is perfect plum. The snow flake paper is about 10 years old and no idea where from ;)
This gorgeous little couple was created for a special order from a friend. The wedding is in Bali so I googled the resort and looks like it has beautiful gardens and lots of frangipanis so hence the colour scheme. Coloured with copics and prismacolor pencils. I have utilised this months kit and clowder colouring class with the grass and last months with the dress folds and sequins. I have not really done a ivory dress before so was very different.
The paper stock is mostly stampin up with matching ink in Daffodil delight and Regal rose (R). The frangipani flowers and card is from old stash. Stampin up diamonds and ribbon used. Inside is Floral phrases and Elements of Style (R). The card is massive and measures 20 cm x 20 cm so good job they are going to the wedding and not posting.
I wasn't a massive fan of the remakes of Alice however totally loved the colours and the animation and imagination. That all inspired me with this little project, which has been coloured using copics.
I have mounted on some old stampin up DSP in crushed curry and cherry cobbler. The dies are old stock and I can't remember the names. The mirror was silver and gold card and I sponged to make it look old and grungy. The little bottle has red glitter and a little drink me rolled up parchment.
The inside of the card has some liliofthevalley sentiment and a clock stamp. Thanks for swinging by xx
I love doing progressive challenges as you have no choice in the image so that can often put me out of my comfort zone, this one also had the 3 colour challenge, I was so happy with the way she turned out. The stampin up papers were the perfect colours. Coloured fully in copics with wink of stella in the flowers. xx
