Skateboard Schoolboy

Recently I had the difficult challenge of making a birthday card for a teenage boy!  They can be tricky but I had a look through the wonderful boy images at Mo's Digital Pencil and found this one called Skateboard Schoolboy and thought he would be perfect.

I coloured him with Copics and cut him out.  Then I used a Tim Holtz brick stencil and sponged Speckled Egg Distress Oxide onto black card. I love the way this turned out :)

The sentiment is from a great die by Pinkfresh Studio called Sending.

Copics Used :

E 000, 00, 13, 21, 41, 50, 53, 55

B 000, 93, 95, 97

R 20, 22, 30

YG 91, 95

W 1, 5, 7, 9

C 1

Warm Christmas

 I have a cute card to share for Mo's Digital Pencil today.

I do love creating wintery Christmas scenes but that is really the opposite of what an Australian Christmas is, so this stamp called Warm Christmas was such a perfect one for me.  She is adorable and I love the Christmas Bush flowers blowing about too :)

I coloured the scene with Copics and added some wink of stella to the outside of her wings and the white flowers. The sentiment is included with the stamp and I simply cut it out and added a hand-drawn border to it.

I added Pinkfresh Studio's Stitched scallop square die to it and mounted it onto a sheet of LawnFawn watercolor paper.

Copics used :

E 000, 00, 13, 21, 42, 43, 44

R 20, 22, 24, 30

YG 0000, 01, 03

B 0000, 00, 21, 23

Peace Love Joy


I have a Christmas card to share using some beautiful Lavinia Stamps.

I created the wreath using Berry Wreath with mini berries.  I stamped it in black and with Mowed Lawn distress ink.  I also used the little branch from the Foliage Set with mowed lawn that I'd stamped off.  The berries were stamped with a metallic ink. 

I stamped the Small Reindeer and Pippin onto the wreath and coloured the tiny berries with gold and copper sparkle pens.

I then used the mowed lawn distress ink mixed with water to do a little watercolour wash around the outside of the wreath.  Nothing fancy and super easy but I like the way this turned out :)

I then added a sentiment strip from Kaisercraft called First Noel - Calm.  It is a whole page of Christmas sentiments gold embossed on black.  I think it looks great with the Lavinia Stamps. 

I'd like to enter my card in the following challenges :

Reindeer Peace

I have another Christmas card to share today using Lavinia Stamps

This one uses the Berry Wreath, Foliage Set and the small Reindeer stamps.

I stamped the wreath using Dusty Concord archival ink and added some fullness with the small branch from the Foliage Set. I then stamped the small Reindeer with Versafine Clair.

I coloured the berries using white, gold and copper sparkle pens and added a die-cut shimmering star.
I used a rectangle die from CC Designs and a sentiment from a Kaisercraft paper called Calm.
