The Lovely NEW Molly!!

Hello friends :)

Have you seen the NEW girl at Tiddly Inks ?? Her name is Molly and I LOVE her :)

I rushed to purchase the 4 new Molly's but until yesterday hadn't had any spare time to colour her up. But she was worth the wait, I'm so happy with how she turned out.
When it came to how to card this sweet little lady I was coming up blank so I sought the advice of my dear friend Zoe of Make it Crafty and recent addition to Tiddly Inks design team for some help and after several messages to and throw 'we' came up with this idea, I hope it looks as good in real life as it did in Zoe's head ;) thank you.

I coloured Molly with Copic Markers - Skin - YR0000, 000, 00. Hair - E41, 43. Clothing C1, 2, 4, N6, 8, 10. Flowers - R20, 24, 27, YG63, 67. 
I cropped Molly so I could fit her into the frame, kind of felt bad chopping her legs off. 
I used a white pigment colourbox ink and clear embossing powder for the Delicate Love Frame.

Now to find some more time so I can colour up the other three beautiful Molly's - Molly swims, Molly Shares and Molly My Sweet.

Thanks for stopping by, feel free to leave a comment I'd love to hear from you.

Make it Crafty June Oldies - Scrapbooking

Hello, I'm here today with something a bit different :)

I LOVE Scrapbooking my families lives but I haven't done any for the last couple of years, I think colouring and making cards took over BUT after being inspired by Kathy Tanner using her coloured images with her scrapbooking I thought it's time to bring out the photo's and get busy.

Snowball 2_result

Snowman 1_result

Snowday 1_result

I inserted the images into Microsoft Word and set the page layout to horizontal so I could use the images to cover the entire base of my scrapbook page, I resized the images until I was happy with them, printed then coloured them. Once coloured I fussy cut around the scene and adhered them to the pattern paper and arranged my photo's around the pages. I enjoyed combining my love of both scrapbooking and colouring.

Images coloured with Copic Markers - Snow - C0, 1, 2, 4. Trees - YG61, 63, 67, E23. Donna Snowball - Skin - YR0000, 000, 00, E00, 93. Hair - E41, 42, 43. Boots - N3, 6, 7, 9. White Gel Pen. Pink Clothing - RV52, 63, 55, 19. Blue Clothing - B60, 63, 66. Whimsical Snowman - C0, 1, 2, 4. Nose - YR02, 04. Hat - N3, 6, 7, 9. Shadows - W1. Clear Wink of Stella on the trees and Snowman.
