Happy 40th Birthday to Catherine (Sweet Escapes image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I created this card for my gorgeous sister-in-law who just turned 40. This beautiful image from Sweet Escape actually looks like Catherine so it was a perfect girl to colour and create with. I used many dies - feathers, sun, banners, ovals and cut out some of the background paper flowers to add on the other layers.

Tweety the Wizard card

Hi Crafty Friends,

This is a free colouring book image off the internet that I printed out when I first started colouring with Copics but I never got around to colouring him as I then found digi companies and the rest was history lol. But I have a box full of uncoloured images which I need to create with and I do love how this little guy came out. I had fun creating the background with my black soot distress ink and Wilted violet oxide ink. I used a Lawn Fawn hillside die to create the "ground" and lightly distressed it with the black soot. I added some Wink of Stella and Glossy Accents on the stars to finish the card.

Beachy Best Wishes card (Hannah Lynn/Crafts & Me image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I've been out of action a little this month but I'm back now and I'm loving every second creating again. I bought myself a new craft desk and I feel much more organised.

The three cards I'm posting today are very different from each other, I hope you like them all, this is very muted, girly and a little mature/shabby, the other is very cute and bright using distress oxide inks and then I have another girly card but it's bright and cheery.

This gorgeous image is from Hannah Lynn at Crafts and Me, I have created with her once before so I've added the card below. I used some stamps and dies from a free magazine set, that would be the shells, starfish and seahorse. I coloured the girl with Copics. The papers are from Kaisercraft.




I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Aloha Fridays -  anything goes with optional twist: summer
As you like it - fave embellishment and why - lace because it adds some dimension to a card as well as always turning a card into a more feminine delicate creation which I love.

Sending you sunshine card (Milk Coffee image)

Hi Crafty Friends,

I only have one card to show today, what a shocker hehe! I normally post in batches as it takes a while to blog them and add them to challenges. I've got a few images coloured up but I haven't got around to creating cards yet. I'm in the middle of changing my craft area so I may not be creating as much for the next month or so. 

I used some gorgeous beachy papers from a Kaisercraft paper pad for this card. I did add a bit of extra colour to the yellow areas by inking them with my oxide ink, it was easy to go over as the other areas have a glossy cover so the ink wipes right off it. I added the "water" paper to the bottom and made sure to colour the image's waves a similar colour. This is a really old image from Milk Coffee and sadly they no longer sell their images.
