Here is my card with the image ANGEL JOY, she is a progressive freebie over at From The Heart Stamps. I used the sketch and color inspiration from Your Next Stamp challenge and the gumdrops are from YNS also. I kept the design simple and closely followed the sketch.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
So I grabbed this cutie freebie image from the Treasured Times Rubber Stamps FB page and got her done just in time to enter the challenge. The image is designed by Erica Nicomedi. I also colored her up with the colors to go with the My Favorite Things color palette #11. The colors are grey, red, blue and green.
Here is my copic list
REDS: R22,29,39,59 C5
Green:leaves, G67,94,99 scarf: YG03,06,09
shading with C1,3,5
I hand cut the tree, used some super old paper from my stash (green pattern paper)
used my Heidi Swapp chevron stamp on the red, Hero Arts ribbon ladder stamp for the border around the girl and snowman, banner is from MFT Blueprints #13, a border punch and a doily.
Sharing a card made with the Seaside Wishes stamp set from Sugar Pea Designs, LOVE this set and have used the sentiments and little accents on several cards, this is the first one using the little girl and I just think she is adorable....as are all SPD images.
I colored with copics, masked the girl and used distress ink on the background, I added white sharpie to the waves and glossy accents to the shells and crab. I also used the stitched rectangle from My Favorite Things Blueprints, I inked the sentiment with distressed ink as well to tie in the touch of yellow on her sand pail.
I used the sketch over at Sugar Pea Designs and would like to enter the following challenges:
This week over at A Random Fan we are showcasing this adorable image called Christmas Decor and you can find it HERE.
I've always loved penguins, as a teenager I had 4 huge penguins painted on my bedroom walls along with some art deco type images. I just think they are so cute and so fun to watch. So to give a shout out to all those cute little guys and gals out there hopping around and slappin each other upside the head.....please enjoy!! ;)
Here is Scuba-Ollie, you can find him HERE . I kept him CAS too, tore the kraft paper for sand and used the crab and sentiment from Sugar Pea Designs Seaside Wishes set. I used the same copic colors as the image on the post below.

Look how cute these pigs are from Whimsie Doodles! I love this cute little piggy couple. I put them each on their own card, with their own theme and went with a smaller size. The card base is 4 1/4 x 4 1/4 and I kept them as CAS as I could.
I colored her with copics using R000, 01, 02, 11, 22, her suit and bow are YG03, 25, 29, and W1, 3 for shading.
The border is a stamp that I stamped the image about six times and pieced them together to fit the edges, printed out the sentiment and the dots are a white sharpie....first time I've used one and I LOVE it!! Photo corner is a die that is so old I can't remember the brand.
This image is called Pig-Kini and you can find her HERE

Just had to share my colored version of CC Designs image called Futuristic Willow.....I bought a new 6x6 paper pad from Target by American Crafts, it has fun pink and green neon with some gold, some navy floral, some stripes, dots and chevrons, so many cute papers. I chose the neon pink and green with touches of gold to match the paper and color this image. The gold is hard to see, but it's on her uniform, gloves, and tops of her boots.
I don't ever know how an image is going to turn out when coloring, if I picked the right colors, if my colors are going to blend well and not gunk up, if I can get the hair to turn out semi-decent....but overall, I find coloring to be very relaxing and therapeutic. I have a stack of colored images that honestly I don't know if I will ever do anything with.....maybe they will end up in my copic journal...or maybe an art journal...if I can ever get one!
I got this card done for a couple challenges, the image is called Rory Fairy from Kith and Kin, I colored her during a color along with Alyce from Kit and Clowder a few months back and am just now getting her on a card.
I tend to leave off a sentiment until I know who and what occasion I will need it for, sometimes, I will just put something simple that can later be added to.
I used Broken China distress paint on a dot foam stamp, added a bunch of flowers I've had forever, punched a couple leaves, added a little tag and stamped HI, and added some stickles to the edges of the flower and all along the edge of the image.
After looking at this for a couple days, I decided I didn't like the pink panel and took it off...much better!!
