Tinker & Co Fairy

This is my first chance to play with my new die from Tinker & Co.

Isn't she cute? She's really easy to put together and the die cut so smoothly in my cuttlebug.

Her skin tone is Copic Ciao E00 Skin White.

Now I just need to make a card with her!

Footie Fan 1st Birthday - by request

Here's one for a 1st birthday for a Dunfermline Athletic fan (c'mon the Pars!)

Yet another Whippersnapper - they are so perfect for Copic markers! I love this little monster - probably why I use him so often! The Copic colours are so vivid I think this one works really well. The paper Pink Martini "Tie Die".

Pretty in Purple!

Here she is in purple! I love this Whippersnapper stamp! She is so easy to colour. This time I have used Copic Ciao markers - still getting used to them but I think my blending is getting better.

The flourish stamp is one of a collection by Pink Cat Studio - it's inked with Lavender and Sky Blue ColorBox cats eyes. The card stock is Papermania - quality is excellent!

Last Attempt for tonight

At least I will be able to make loads of cards quickly with all these!! I'm amazed at how quick you can colour with Copics. Although I definately need a LOT more practice, I have enjoyed starting out with them and the results are ok. This is my last attempt for tonight. The light isn't good and I'm sleepy!

New Elzybells stamp


2nd attempt!

I will keep practicing!!

Copic - first attempt

Here's my first attempt with my new copics which have just arrived. Definately a learning curve I think! Although I stamped it with Stazon the black ink did bleed a wee bit which surprised me - maybe I just didn't give it enough time to dry? Anyway, definately more practice required!

Bird House

This is one of the new collection from Elisabeth Bell for Sugar Nellie - Bird House. It's a lovely stamp! These are so addictive! As you can see I coloured this one with water colour pencils - it took a wee while to do but is totally worth it! The papers are Basic Grey "Euphoria".

Altered Box

Altered box for my small dies. The papers are American Crafts "Amplified".

Bear Framed

I've been after this little guy for ages! He's by an Australian company called Stamp-It and I've always been out of luck finding him in the UK!

This card is for my friend Jackie who starts her new job on Monday!
