Fairy With Bottle


It's release day over at Little Blue Button Stamps and I'm here with a notecard for you. I really have been loving using bright and bold colours lately, and todays card is no different. Using those fluorescent colours (actually I use one of the fluorescent copics in her hair). I let this project be a simple notecard, with a black matt so you'll need a white gel pen to write on it.

Ice Cream Emma


I'm here with a new card, really loved working with the papers I used for the wedding card that was shared on the Paper Nest Dolls Facebook page the other week with Prom Avery, so I thought I would use them again and pair them with sweet Ice Cream Emma for a birthday card. Todays image is coloured with copics and a few Faber Castel Polychromos to add detail to the hair and add some definition to the shadows. I have also made a video showing how I colour the image and going step by step through how I put the card together.

Gift From Millie


I have a new card for you today, it's all about those bright strong colours. Also for the past couple of weeks I have been hopping onto the diversity bandwagon, Sandy Allnock has shared a wonderful chart for what she calls colouring the human rainbow, you can get it for free from her website. It's all about trying to mix it up when it comes to skin colour. I have been trying to do that before, but have a way of defaulting back to caucasian skin colours I usually do, as that is a colour combo that is in my head. But after printing and colouring that chart (you can find a video of me colouring it and talking abit more about it here), I do find myself using more and more different skin colours. I have the chart laying on my table next to my colouring together with my hex chart and my copic chart. And it just makes me change things up. I also find myself using other pattern papers as different skin colours lends them self for other colour combinations for the clothes and the whole card.

Sonny Honeycloud Rocks

For this card I pulled out my distress inks, not for the character as she is coloured with copics as usually, using one of Sandy Allnocks wonderful skin colours from her coloring the human rainbow chart, adding a lighter colour for those highlights. But the background is all distress inks. Actually only three of them, the orange is made by blending the yellow and the pink and the green is made by blending the blue and the yellow, a simple but fun background.

The character is called Sonny Honeycloud Rocks and is a Little Miss Muffet Stamps stamp, it is so adorable. I loved playing with the pinks in the hair, just adding more and more different shades. Don't forget to join the challenge over at Little Miss Muffet Stamps Challenge Blog this week, its anything goes.

Maddy With Glasses

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a tag for you all, I'm using the adorable Maddy With Glasses and being a girl with glasses myself I thought I would give her pink hair. Now for some reason you can't see the adorable candy-floss pink hair she got on the photo, it looks greyer than in real life.
