Inky Fingers

Did you know that the Make it Crafty CAS (clean and simple) team's challenge this month is 'Masking'? Check it out HERE!
It has inspired me to get my rubber stamps out and do some masking and boy it felt good to get all inky again, don't get me wrong I love using digital image but it's also great to play with rubber.

I created this scene by masking the stamps then coloured it up with Copic Markers.

Hi all, how are you?

I'm here today to share with you some older images that are on SALE right now for just $1.00!!! offer ends 31st March so don't delay :) Click HERE to see all the $1 digi's.

I created a 6" x 5.5" scene using two of the $1.00 images Biker Dad,  Stage Backdrops and a few other must have digi's from the Urban Street Collection.
I spent quite a bit of time on this scene trying to ensure I didn't miss a detail,
I hope you like it as much as I enjoyed creating it.

21st Birthday Card for my beautiful daughter.

Hi all, how are you?
What a wonderful and busy weekend I've had celebrating my daughters 21st birthday :)
She shared a party with my 'son' to another mother and about 55 close friends and family, with a fun night had by all.
I thought I'd share the card I made for her using my very first Stamping Bella rubber stamp - Tiny Townie SAGE loves Science, my daughter is currently studying Science and Chemical Engineering at University so I thought this cute science themed stamp would be perfect for her.

I'm happy to report she loved her card and I'm sure this won't be my last Stamping Bella stamp either. 

I coloured her with Copic Markers - Skin - YR000, 000, 00, 01, Hair - E40, 42, 43. Lab Coat - C0, 1, YG03, V01. Dress and Stockings - BV20, 23, 25, 29. Shoes - W1, 3. Birds - Y21, 32, 19, YR15. Safety Goggles - BV 23, 25, 29, B000, 00. Beakers - YG01, 03, 17, B00, V000, 000, 01, 04. Shadows - W5, BV23, 25. 

I'll be back with the card I made for my 'son' to an other mother soonish but for now I wish you a wonderful day/night :)

Pond - a - lily Card._result

I cropped the image firstly to create the wall of reeds, then to 'trim' the image to the size I desired and then I grouped the images to make one image which I change the colour setting to 'washout' to achieve the 'no line' effect and printed.

I coloured the image with Copic's and pencils. Reeds - E81, 84, YG93, 95. Lily Pads - YG61, 63, 67. Frog - YG01, 03, 05. Lily Stem - G05, 09. Lily Petals - RV00, 11, W4. Dragonfly - BV000, 11, BG53. Sky - B0000. Water - BG57. Bubbles - White Polychromos, White Pastel Pencil, Cobalt Green Polychromos, Amber Derwent Inktense, Neutral Grey Derwent Inktense. Shadows/Reflections W3, 5.

I watched a video tutorial from my current drawing hero Leonardo Pereznieto - Fine Art Tips on Colouring Bubbles with Pencils to learn how to create the bubbles, it's great :)

I hopes this inspires you all to join this fun challenge!
