It's Party Time - Stamping Bella.

I love this image from Stamping Bella called Uptown Girls Felicity and Blair! 
I coloured it using copics and glued the girls with 3d foam onto so star accetate. I added a glitter black frame cut with a My Favourite things die and a Make it Crafty chippie saying Its Party Time which I coloured with a Spectrum Noir sparkle pen in black (Which I love and use all the time!)
Finally I added some Black stars from Doodlebug.

I love the modern feel of this card and am pleased with how they turned out as this was one the first images I played with and coloured when I got my copics.

Time To Sparkle.

Afternoon all

Did you know we have just started our new challenge over at All Dressed Up Blog? Plus we have announced our new dressy girls for you all to meet!! Take a look over at the All Dressed up blog here

Yoga fun

Hello -
Wow its Sunday again - where is the time going?? So I am soon to have a big birthday but I am determined to be in good(ish) shape and given my love for chocolate and cake - this is unlikely but I got an app for Yoga moves.... Now I run 3 times a week so I don't think Im unfit but I couldn't do it! My balance is terrible and my flexibiltiy not much better so I saw this image and Yogic Yulia from Dr Digi is going to be my motivation to get rid of my flabby tummy!!

I used copics to colour her and papers from First Edition paradise crush collection. The greeting is from Jillibean Soup - I will let you know when it becomes Fun!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wryn wishes with a pop of colour.

Hello - I finally had a proper go at doing some monotone colouring using W's Copics. I used an image from Tiddly Inks called Wryn Wishes
I kept the card really simple by printing the image big and then mounting her onto red and grey card.
I used a Make It Crafty chipboard XOXO which I coloured with RV29 and W3 into W5 & W7. Finally I used some Spectrum Noir sparkle pen over the top of the chipboard and also a little on the dandelions.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges -

I hope you like how she has turned out - Im pleased with and the little pop of red colour.

Psychedelic Syd.

Hello - Im back today with Psychedelic Syd from Dr Digi. He is too cool and groovy!Obviously he had to be bright and colourful and I thought he would go really well with this paper from my stash called Salsa celebrations from Junkitz. (Ive had this ages so doubt its still available!!) The pink frame is the reverse side of the paper.

I've used Copics to color him in and stupidly wrote the numbers down on the back and didnt make a note of them before I stuck it all together!! D'oh!

Anyway - enough from me - enjoy your Sunday and I hope you get some crafty time!

Happy Easter Folks.

Happy Easter Folks from me and Cuddly Critter Rabbit from Dr Digi! I thought he would go perfectly with this Echo Park Carrot paper. I figured his desire for Carrot is very similar to my Chocolate addiction!
So many many have you eaten already? - Nothing wrong with a full chocolate egg for Breakfast!! Cocoa is a bean so as far I can make out - Its one of my five a day !!

So basically I covered a card blank with Echo Park Celebrate Easter paper and die cut one piece with a Lawn Fawn big stitched circle die. I coloured the bunny with copics and then cut around him and used 3d foam to attach him to the card base. The felt carrots I got from Tesco (?!) and I stamped the greeting from Lawn Fawn Celebration Scripty Sayings stamps and then cut it down to a panel and mounted it on black.

I used W0 to W7 greys and RV10 & RV02 for his nose and ears with a touch of B00 for his eyes.

Right I better hop off.... I have more chocolate to eat!! Have a great day!
