Spring is here Blog Hop - Tiddly Inks

G'Day all

Today is a different kind of Blog Hop, where it's not only the Design Team hopping it's open to anyone who wants to share their Tiddly Ink creations! 
Here's how it works - 

1) Make your card ahead of time and post it your blog (I plan to schedule mine for 4/28/2018 at 4 PM CST). I will also have an InLinkz box at the bottom of the post so that you can add yours on 4/28 starting at 4 PM.
2) After your post is live on your blog at 4 PM, come back to my blog and paste your URL/blog address in the Inlinkz box (our blog post will be up at 4 PM CST-noon).
3) Wait until 6 PM when we close the Inlinkz list, and then come back here and visit all the entries in the Inlinkz list. When you click on each entry, it should open a new window with the blogger’s card and entry…kinda cool, huh? It means we don’t have to direct you to the next blog…. just stay on my blog to keep “hopping” around the entries.
Hop around and visit the cards. 🙂The DT members will have their amazing cards listed at 4 PM CST too and I will have a link to their blogs, but the full blog hop STARTS AT 6 PM CST after everyone has a chance to list their cards. 🙂 The hop ends April 29, and we have planned a party on the Facebook page from 6 PM until 10 PM on April 29, so please stop by.
Two random blogger participant winners will be announced April 29 and highlighted on my blog. Each will receive a $10 gift voucher.
Two random commenters will be selected from amongst the blogs to receive a $5 gift voucher.
We will be offering one lucky participant a spot on the Tiddly Inks design team (if they want it) for the month of May. This comes with the shopping perks and the ability to be part of the weekly challenges for the month of May.
If this doesn’t make sense or you have questions, just email me or leave me a note. 🙂
Here's my make for the hop!

Sabrina, Thank-you

G'Day all,

Today I am sharing a card I made as a thank you card to have in my stash in case I need one at sometime. It didn't start out as a thank you card it was actually going to be a birthday card but there was something about the look in Sabrina's eyes that made me think it suited a thank you card better, can you see it?
I coloured the digital image with my Copic Markers


Skin - E000, 00, 01, 11, 93,

Lips - E04

Eyes - YG21, 25, Dark Sepia - 175 Polychromos Pencil

A simple thank you stamp on a banner.

Ford Thunderbird - 50th Birthday Card

Hi all :)

I'm here today to share a card I made for a friends 50th Birthday, he recently purchased a 1966 Red Ford Thunderbird so my husband asked if I'd make a card featuring this type of car and the search was on to find one in digital form. I was thrilled when I can across this 1957 Ford Thunderbird from Tom's Colorful Life store on Etsy, it was as close to his real one as possible.

Take Me to the Moon - Tiddly Inks April Challenge

Hello, how are you today?

Tiddly Inks challenge this Month is 'Circle's'!! Yes 'Circle's' so keep everything round and join in on the fun :)

I'm here with this cute Circle Shadow Box and this gorgeous digital image 'Take me to the Moon' from Tiddly Inks. I made this for a baby gift for my nieces unborn baby, I went with lemon and green colours as I don't know the sex of the baby yet.

These Shadow boxes are so versatile and a lovely keepsake for  any occasion.

 The cute little baby image is called 'Take me to the Moon' from Tiddly Inks.

 Take me to the Moon is coloured with Copic Markers -

Baby Face - E000, 00, 01, Copic Black Fine Liner 0.3
Hair - E55
Pram - G0000, 000, W00, 0, 0, Wheels - C00, 0, 1, Stars - Y000, 00, 11.

 I coloured the Chippy Baby Word and Starry Night Set with Copic Markers - C0, 1, 2, Y000, 00, 11, W2 and some clear Wink of Stella on the stars.

I used a lemon pigment ink on the inside of the Circle Shadow Box and patterned paper on the outer side.

So excited to have another great niece or nephew soon, I hope he/she will love this keepsake one day.

Dew Drops - Make it Crafty's April Challenge

G'day all :) I hope you are having a lovely day.

I made today's card for this months colouring challenge at Make it Crafty, Dew Drops - Add Dew Drops to Leaves and Petals.

Close up of my Dew Drops

To create the background I used my Copic Airbrush first with B95 in a circular motion then with B99 to darken it and back with the B95 to soften the 'circles'. I was inspired to do this pattern after watching a youtube video by Sandy Allnock, my practice ones turned out so much better lol.

I've coloured the Rose with Copic Markers and Polychromos Pencils

Leaves - G43, 24, 46.

Petals - R35, 37, 39, 59, 89, Red-Violet 194, Magenta 133 & Middle Purple Pink 125

Looking forward to seeing your entries into this months colouring challenge
