Here I am using Heart Fairy  for another ATC.



Ekkkkk how cute! and just in time for Valentine's projects.
Coloured with copic markers and gel pen.
Not sure if you can see it too well, but I used the Clear Wink of Stella over her crown, wings and the black background to make it sparkle!

VLS - Wildflower


New Release time over at Vera Lane Studio.

The Fleur de Girls Collection has arrived and today I have used Wildflower.




Coloured with copic markers.
I decided to make a bookmark with her and then a card.
The bookmark is attached with 3 foam dots so they can be carefully peeled off the front and use the bookmark for real. 
I also embossed the card mat to add some texture and interest.

VLS - Arthur Ave Collage Sheet No.1


Inspiration time over at Vera Lane Studio.

I have used the recently released Arthur Ave Collage Sheet No.1 PDF file for my Planner page.





Oh so colourful!!!!!!
I printed the PDF out on sticker paper and then cut them out - too easy!
So if you don't like your colouring, print these and brighten up your page - it really will brighten your day when you look at your page!
The little saying on the right is on the Happy Planner page already and I thought it works well with our Buzz Fairy.

VLS - Matildas Letter


Inspiration time over at Vera Lane Studio.

I have used Matildas Letter from the fab Matildas New Year set.


I've coloured her with copic markers and gel pens.

Teresa has the ATC Swap theme this month of Trash 2 Treasure.
So with that in mind, I recycled some cardboard for the base.
Used an old novel page with some paints and my Gel Plate. Leaving a strip on either side so you can see the cardboard. Of course now I have some more ready to be used for future ATC's!

I am entering them in the following Challenges:
  1. Colour Crazy - Wk 3

Floral Collection 1

Here I am with another Inspiration Post for Mari Ko Creations New Releases.


I am using the New Release Floral Collection 1.


There are 3 flowers in this collection.
They are very versatile in that you could use them for any occasion. I have used them to make a set of 3 Thinking of You cards. These could be for someone in need of prayer, or a sympathy card.

Flower 5 

 Flower 4

Large Rose

All are coloured with copic markers.
I distressed both the patterned paper and the card bases just because I'm loving the distressed look at the moment...the sentiment is stamped directly onto the patterned paper.

My favourite when I was colouring them was the blue, but once I assembled them all and finished, my favourite now is the pink one!

I am entering my trio of cards in the following Challenges:
  1. Crafting with Dragonflies # 96
  2. Lil Patch of Crafty Friends # 74
  3. Retarte # 113
  4. CCC Digi Creations # 88
  5. Crafting by Designs

Emmys Hat

Challenge time again over at SheepSki Designs Facebook Page and this month our optional theme is For The Girls.

I've used an older image called Emmys Hat.


A day at the races, nice bright hat with the winter blues maybe??
I coloured her hat and background using water inks and aqua brushes.
Emmy herself is coloured with copic markers.
Added some bling to add extra sparkle.
A nice blend of the two mediums, LOL, yes a bit more practise with the water inks I think.
