A little bit of Ice-cream Love

Hello Whimsy stamps fans and Blog friends
how is your day going so far? Did you guys 
join us yesterday for Day 1 of the Rubber Stamps Release
if so what did you think? So many cute stamps and so little 
craft budget lol. 

I mentioned yesterday that we are trying something 
new for this release its all taking place over on our Facebook page
there are games you can join with fun prizes up for grabs.

This is my Day 2 DT inspiration card the image is by
Artist and illustrator Mi Ran and this is Ice-Cream Love.

I had a go at creating a scene this was a little outside my
confort zone but sometimes you have to challenge ones-self
just to know if your colouring is actually getting better.

I drew the scene in lightly with pencil then erased it and using my 
lightest copics first then got progressively darker.

Have a lovely day my friends and i will see you fine folk 
same time tomorrow for Day 3 of the 
Whimsy stamps Rubber release.
TTFN..... Mwah....Xoxo

I had a go a making a bit of a scene to get some depth into the

A little Bit Tiddly........Inks

Hello Blog Friends! How are you today? has it been a good week
so far. Its been a glorious day here in Cornwall and the sun
always makes you feel good doesn't it.

I'm not sure if you are aware but over at  Tiddly Inks 
they are having a DT call so I thought I would try out for it.

Tiddly Inks images are some of the first digi's i ever bought, 
I think the first stamps I purchased were Katrina and Cat Girl, 
they had a bit of a gothic look to them and quite different
to other stamps on the market. 

For my first card, I have used 

 Fairy Sunny Day, I coloured her with Copics, I kept the card 
quite CAS. I used MFT Blueprint 21 to get the angled 
frame, the trees and vines are also dies from MFT, I used some foam
tape to raise the little tree in front of the frame to 
give the card a little depth, and the illusion that the two other tree's
are a little bit in the distance. 

Copic colours used
Dress & Shoes: C5, R89, R39, R37, R35, V12, V15, V17.
FlowersV12, V15, V17, YR04, Y38,  Y17, Y15
YG61, YG63, YG67, YG9, G05, G07, G09
Hair: E70, E74, E77, E79 
Skin: E04, E000, E00, E21, E11
Wings :Sakura Glitter gel pen

My Second card I have used this cute little angel stamp i purchased

last year, I could not resist buying her, sadly the first 
time she was printed was yesterday, this is Angelic Wishes
I coloured her with Prisma pencils then made a side step card
she is my first Christmas Card for this year. I also used some LOTV
clear frame stamps around the out side and 
some Fran-tage to give her a little sparkled some Distress Inks
to make her look aged.

I don't quite remember  Prisma colours i used, sorry!
Take care friends and i will see you fine peeps here again 
soon.... Wish me luck ... I think I'm gonna need it  :)
