Exciting News and Molly's Donut - Tiddly Inks

Hello all :)

If you haven't already worked it out I have some very exciting news!!

I'm now a Tiddly Inks Design Team member!!

I was extremely surprised and excited to receive an email from Christy on Sunday asking if I would be interested in joining the Tiddly Inks DT, Hahaha what a silly question Heck Yeah I'm interested but I didn't reply immediately I needed to be practical and think this through, family, work and my other Design Teams had to be considered, could I fit this wonderful new opportunity into my busy schedule? After a few hours and some conversations with family and a couple of close friends the decision was made and here I am and I couldn't be happier! Thank you Christy for this new adventure. 

Those of you who know me know that I am in love with 'Molly' so I thought it fitting that my first post as a DT member would feature 'Molly' and here she is :)

I've coloured Molly's Donut with Copic Markers, Metallic Gel Pens and Polychromos Pencil.

Skin - E000, 00, 01, 21.

Hair - T1, 3, 5, 7, 9 Cold Grey VI 255.

Dress & Headband - Y15, 17, 18, 21.

Donuts - E71, 74, 77, 79, Metallic Blue, Pink and Violet Gel Pens.

Shoes - E71, 74, 77, 79, Metallic Blue, Pink and Violet Gel Pens, Y21, 26, 28. 

Copic fine line black 0.5 for her eyes. 

I coloured the Chipboard Single Layered Wishes word with E77 for the base and left the top 'wishes' and the Adapt-a-word 'birthday' natural. 

I hope you like my card and I'm looking forward to bringing you loads more wonderful Tiddly Ink characters to enjoy.

Celebrate Love - Make it Crafty

Hello everyone :)

Today's post is all about love <3 with Valentines Day only a month away and my niece hinting of a possible engagement I was inspired to create this card.

I merged two of the new teen images Classy Olivia and Executive Jake to make this cute couple and kept the card very clean and simple then used the Celebrate single layered Word and the Love from the Sending Adapt-a-Word on the inside of the card with a few little Mini Heart Tinklings.

Images coloured with Copic Markers and Kaszazz Alcohol Markers

Skin - E000, 00, 01, 02, 13, 21, 04.

Hair - W3, 5, 7, 9. Eyes - E23, 25.

Purples - V25, 17, 99.

Gold/Yellow - Y11, Butter, Mustard, Dandelion. Blacks - N3, 5, 7, 9.

I coloured the Chippies with V25, Y11, Butter and Mustard.

I hope you can feel the love I'm sending
