Black with a splash of red...

Hellooooo! I've been at work all week so not much colouring done. Did manage to finish my card for the Make it Colourful Challenge which is to colour with blacks/greys and a splash of red. This weeks sponsor is Tiddly Inks and we've been given some brand new images to do some sneaky peekies for you. I don't even know what this couple is called yet! LMAO! I've used the hidden forest seat from make it Crafty which you can find HERE.

I've used copic colours NO, N1, N3, N5, N7, N9 for him, W0, W1, W3, W5, W7 for her and the vines are W1, W3 and E43 for some colour .
The red range is R30, R32, R35, R37, R59.
The chipboard embellies and flowers are from Make it Crafty, the button and ribbon from my stash.

PS the couple are called You and Me Baby and you will soon be able to purchase them from Tiddly Inks HERE

Easter Frog?

I had a request before Easter to do an easter card with a frog on it....? Duh? And guess what? I found images of Easter frogs at The Graphics Shoppe !!!!
I actually removed the colouring in order to colour to suit the paper I used which is DCWV Citrus Stack. The beads from my stash are threaded onto copper wire , also from my stash. I threw this together very quickly and the colouring isn't the best but anyhoo....

I'm entering this in Scrappy Frogs - Happy Easter
and My Mum's Craft Shop- flowers

Make it Black

This week at Make it colourful we are challenge you to colour black hair. A bit of a challenge alright but I went back to the amazing Zoe's tutorial on colouring black hair , and OK, so this isn't like hers at all but I'm pretty happy with the result anyway.  I used the N range of copics for the hair   NO, N1, N3, N5, N7 and N9  and threw in a bit of black prismacolour pencil for luck! LOL!

  We are being sponsored this week by Some Odd Girl , where you can find some of the CUTEST digi stamps!
  I've use the Make it Crafty Fair carousel and plonked the unicycle in as well and wish I hadn't it looks a bit odd!!! .The cute girl image is from Some Odd Girl and she is " Ice Cream Tia" which you can find HERE.

I've use Cosmo Cricket paper I've had forever, I love the colours.    The chipboard corner I inked and covered with stickles and you can find these at Make it Crafty also.

Zoe from Make it Crafty and Mo from Mo’s Digital Pencil, came together to share the delight and fun of The Carnival. To celebrate - the two fabulously talented teams have come together for a massive blog hop to offer you plenty of inspiration when playing with these images.
Along the way you will find balloons with a letter in them. Write down the letters as you go because at the very end we want you to guess what the saying is! 

There will be THREE grand prizes randomly drawn from the correct answers PLUS there will be hidden prizes along the way so make sure you leave some love as you hop along!
Now we know this is a super big hop, but we wanted to make sure you would get LOTS of inspiration! The hop will be open until the 28thApril so you will have plenty of time to come back each day with a cuppa to soak it all up! (Just don’t lose the letters you have been collecting!)
We would like to thank our fabulous sponsors, Mo’s Digital Pencil, Make it Crafty, Stamping Bella and Quixotic Paperie for providing the fabulous prizes for this grand carnival hop!


My card is made with DCWV Citrus Stack papers, flowers and beads from my stash, the chipboard corner from Make it Crafty and tickets from Bearly Mine designs . The circus tent and ticket box images are from Make it Crafty and the girl is Kat at the carnival from Mo's Digital Pencil.

In case you have trouble seeing my balloon – my letter is “G

This weeks challenge at Southern Girls is to use Blue & Green.  What I love about this colour combo is that it made me use up some of my mega stack of SU paper that I never seem to bother with! LOL!

 Our sponsors this fortnight are Scrapbox NZ, Digital delights and Meljens. I've used a Meljen image which is available from Whimsy stamps , and she is  called Miss Fancy Cat. What a smart tart she is too!
 Ribbons and flowers are from my stash and the corner swirl is from Make it Crafty. I painted it first then coated it in glossy accents.

Bright Colours!

Its Make it Colourful challenge time again and this time we are challenging you to use bright colours. How easy is that? Not my usual choice but hey, you sometimes have to go outside your comfort zone.
 Wish I didn't now.... HAHAHA!  This card just doesn't really do it for me and I think I've got too much yellow/green....anyway, next card will be better I promise!  Our sponsor this week is Whimsy Stamps and I've used "Chew Cute", a digi that you can find HERE.   I've used photoshop to place the cows in Make it Crafty's "Across the bridge" background which you can find HERE.

The yummy scroll corners are also from Make it Crafty, Zoe has a range of gorgeous lasercut chipboard embellies!  The ribbons, flowers and bling are from my stash, I coloured the orange braid with copics, it was white.  Some glossy accents on the sun and river.   Now really, the cows are too big and make the bridge look like it was made for pixies! LOL!   

I'm entering this in Fabulous friday- Use bling
The Rubber Cafe- Spring flowers

Let's get Distressed!

This months card challenge over at Debs Creations is to distress it.   I've used the gorgeous Ebony from the first release of Emerald Faeries for this card and you can find them HERE.  I've coloured her with copics, the paper is K & Co, the cage is a Tim Holtz die covered in weathered wood crackle paint. The lace, flowers and pearls are from my stash and I've distressed the edges, then inked with vintage photo distress ink. The butterfly is a digi from Isabella's Sketchbook which I've coloured with copics and added stardust stickles to.

I really like this orange/red colour on the mushroom but do you think I can remember which copics I used?   NOOOOO!  What a twit! I'm going to have to sit and play for a while to see if I can reproduce it! LMAO!
