Candy Cane Bear Sweater

I have made another Christmas card to add to this years tiny, but growing stash :)
I've used a stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Candy Cane Bear.

He's great because he's so quick to colour and super cute too!

 





I coloured the image with Copics and used the Pinkfresh Studio's Stitched Scallop Square die to frame it.
For the background I used an embossing folder by Sizzix called Nordic Sweater and distressed the top of the card so that the pattern was more prominent.

Feed The Soul

I have a card to share today using a stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Feed The Soul.

I just love this fabulous lady with her beautiful bunch of tulips :)

She comes with a wonderful sentiment but I used a different one that I had in my stash.  I thought it worked perfectly with her and would make a great Thankyou or Birthday card.





I loved colouring her but I especially loved colouring the tulips!

I cut her out and placed it on an oval cut from Spellbinders Opulent Oval die set.  It's one of of my oldest dies and I haven't used it for a very long time but I just thought it suited this stamp so well.

The sentiment is from an old Stampin Up set.

I really can't believe that it's July already, this year is going by so fast!  I decided that I really needed to make a start on my Christmas cards this week with this cute stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called 2 Penguin Chicks.

Journey

I have made another page for my art journal this week.  It features a gorgeous stamp from Mo's Digital Pencil called Journey



I had fun colouring the image with Copics and then got crafty making the background.

I used kraft card for the base and used ripped tape around the edge to create a blended panel with Distress Oxide inks. I used Speckled eggs, Peacock feather and Mermaid lagoon and then blended Squeezed lemonade over the top using a sunburst stencil.  I then stamped a couple of stamps on top of this.

For the waves I used a wave die with some patterned paper and some paper I created myself with the Distress Oxides and splashed a little water on top.

The sentiment is an old one from Stampin Up, I thought it worked so well with this image. I used a ticket die to cut it out and made a sketchy white border with a gel pen.

Copics used -

W 1, 3, 5, 7

E 000, 00, 13, 21, 33, 35, 37, 43, 44, 47, 53

Mae

I got the chance to play with one of the brand new images from Mo's Digital Pencil this week :)

This is Mae. She's super cute and cheeky too.

I decided to make a page with her for my art journal and I had a lot of fun doing it :)






I want to make pages for my art journal which use quotes or sentiments that speak to me and this quote jumped into my mind as soon as I saw Mae.  I was debating whether to also write where the quote was from on my page but I decided against it.  I'm not going to tell because I'd love to see how many people actually know who said it. Please leave me a message if you do :)

So I coloured her with copics and fussy cut her out. Then I had to find some butterfly wings. I spent sooo long searching through stamps, dies, papers, etc and I thought I had so many butterfly things but nothing seemed right until I found this one in an old calendar I had saved. I think it works perfectly with her :)

I cut some black card to fit my journal page and used tape around the sides to create a black border.  Then I blended different blue and green distress oxide inks onto the card and used the same inks with a butterfly stencil over the top.  I added some circular stamps, flicked on some white gesso, added some washi tape and stickers the sentiment and of course Mae.  I used a white pen to draw a border and glued it onto the journal page.

I loved creating this page! It was a lot of fun :)

Amanita

 I have a card to share today using one of my favourite stamps from Mo's Digital Pencil.  

This is Amanita, isn't she gorgeous?!





I had a lovely relaxing time colouring her with copics :)

I used a woodgrain embossing folder and enhanced the grain by applying white and brown inks.

I also used a scrap of paper by Simple Stories and a vine die from Whimsy Stamps.

Happy Hares and Glow Flowers

I have a card to share using some of my Lavinia Stamps today and I tried out a "new to me" technique too :)




I created the scene using Glow Flowers, Pipin and Whimsical Hares stamps.

I coloured the grass with Copics and used them to also colour the flowers.  Then I used distress oxides to blend around the edges of the card.

I have seen lots of Eclipse cards that I have loved but I have never tried one before.  I decided to be brave and give it a go :) 

It wasn't hard but I wasn't happy with how it looked originally. I think it was just the wrong kind of design/background to attempt it probably.  So I was really annoyed at having tried it on this piece which I had really liked.  But I saved it (in my opinion anyway) by writing on the letters with a gel pen.  

I actually love the look of it now :)
