Arctic Friends - Saturated Canary

Hi again,

Back today to share the second card I made yesterday using 'Arctic Friends' from 'Saturated Canary'.
As you can see I chose to crop the image and only use top have of the character, I thought this would make a nice card to invite a friend over for a cuppa :) I really enjoyed colouring monochromatically with a pop of colour last week so I tried it again this week.

Coloured with Copic Markers - Skin - C0, 1. Lips - C2, 4. Eyes - C2, 4, black fine liner 0.3. Hair - C4, 5, 6. Hat - C0, 2, 4, 5, 6, 7. Cup - C2, 4, 8, 10. Clothing - C2, 4, 6, 8. Background - B32. 

Doodle Girlfriend Words Chipboard from Make it Crafty, inked with black pigment ink and heat embossed with black embossing powder. 

I'm entering this card into a few challenges - 

Fingers Crossed :)

Thanks for taking the time to visit my Happy Place,

Hand Me Downs - Saturated Canary

Hello friends :)

Today's card has come about after I was challenged by my friend Zoe to colour a Saturated Canary image mono-chromatically with a pop of colour, well I had so much fun coloring 'Hand Me Downs'  only using my warm grey copic markers that I forgot about the pop of colour part of the challenge so I decided to give the background the pop of colour and I love it.

My youngest daughter had a birthday party to go to today so this is the card she has taken, I hope the 14yr old recipient likes it :)

Coloured with Copic Markers - Skin - W00, 0, 1, 2. Eyes - W2, 4, 6. Lips - W2, 4, 5. Hair - W4, 6, 8. Top - W5, 7, 9, 10. Dress- W1, 2, 4, 6, 8. Socks - W0, 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 9. Background - BG32 & Turquoise Versa Color pigment ink.

I stamped the 'Happy' from a Wplus9 sentiment stamp set with Rich Cocoa Memento Ink also inking the 'Birthday' base with the same colour and White Color Box pigment ink and white embossing powder was used on the top 'Birthday', I'm really happy with the results. 

Thanks so much for stopping by

Moose Head - DoveArt Studios

Hi all :)

I'm here today with a very clean and simple card featuring 'Moose Head'. I love how this turned out and how quick and easy it was to create.

Coloured with Copic Markers
Moose - E41, 42, 43, 44, 47, 49.
Background - BG02, Colourless Blender.

After colouring the Moose and background I simply stamped the sentiment with brown ink and cut the image out with a rectangle stitched die then foam mounted it onto a slightly bigger rectangle stitched die then placed it onto a folded card the same size as the bigger die.

Thank you card

G'day all,

Today's card is a special card as I made it as a thank you card for Zoe from Make it Crafty for approximately 3 wonderful years on her amazing design team, I will and do already miss being part of this team which Zoe heads up with such inspiration, thoughtfulness, compassion and drive. The best bosslady I could've hoped for.

Because I'm a little obsessed with 'Molly' from Tiddly Inks at the moment and I know Zoe loves Tiddly Inks images I choose 'Molly Shares' for this card just like Zoe does. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for Zoe even when I drive her nuts with questions lol.

Copic Markers Used
Skin - E000, 00, 21
Hair - E41, 42, 43, 44
Dress, Headband & Shoes - BV20, 23, 25
Flowers - YR01, 02, 04, 27, W4, 6
Leaves - G05, 17, 28
Background - Y17
Frame - BV23.

I had the pleasure on Monday to meet Zoe in person to hand deliver this card and spent a wonderful day together.

I hope you like this card, I'm pretty sure Zoe did ;)
