It's Twins!

Hi there, thanks for popping by.  Tonight I finished up making this adorable little card that features a plastic covered window with the focal image on the inside of the card.  

The stamp set that I used is by Clearly Besotted and is called Peekaboo.  I used the starry patterned paper from the Jennifer Ellory Bake a Cake set (again).  It's a cute paper pack and I will probably have some more play time with it soon.

The image was coloured simply with copic markers.  I actually thought the sky would turn out a lot lighter, however I learned that FBG2 turns out to be quite dark - but you'd love a sky that colour in real life :o).

I hope you enjoy my card, thanks for stopping by and all comments are appreciated :o)

Die Cutting Essentials issue 13 - using ice cream Sundae Set

Hey there!  I just made this card using the Die Cutting Essentials Issue 13 free ice cream sundae set.  When I saw this magazine at the newsagent the other day it was a must have, I just thought the dies were so cute, plus a full size embossing folder and 3 stamps as well - what's not to love?  

I've made a fairly basic card but it took me a while, figuring out what to put where etc.  The dish is popped up with double dimensionals, the icecreams have one dimensional, it's rather 3D looking in real life.  The paper I used was from another freebie on a magazine (sorry can't remember, it was separated and put in my paper stash).  The paper set is called "Bake a cake" by Jennifer Ellory - it's very cute.


I hope you like my card and hope you have a fab day!

Luka the Fireman! (Kit and Clowder Create and Learn Marker Class September 2016)

Hi there.  Today I finished 2 versions of the Kit and Clowder Create and Learn Marker Class for September 2016.  A little late but being late doesn't worry me, I get there eventually :o)  I still have a few classes to do from before September and a new one arrived in my mail box yesterday too, so stay tuned for more colouring blog posts in the future.  

Our image was provided to us for half price from La La Land Crafts.  The image came merged with the background - which makes it so much easier :o)

For my first attempt at the image I was really pleased with how the colouring turned out.  (As always with these classes).  I had a little go at trying to make the nose more like a nose (not part of the tutorial) and quite liked how it came out.

On my second attempt, I didn't use the video.  I coloured attempt one with the video and then coloured the second one on my own, part by part.  A few times I did the 'own' piece after hours in between.  Just goes to show how I learned just from doing the first one.  

I am super pleased with how the face turned out on Luka on the second one.  I altered it with a copic safe marker and totally fluked the nose - it looks awesome I think!

Thanks for stopping by and commenting for those that do, it's much appreciated.  :o)

Take care and happy crafting
