An hour or so ago and I was on the couch struggling to stay awake, check my email and find some amazing news and so not sleepy anymore..but more on that later ;)
As I have so many projects to catch up on I am going to post a lot of photos and try and keep the words to a minimum tonight so I can get my blog back up to date with where I am at with all my projects.
I hope you enjoy, you may want to make a coffee before you start ;) and if you have any questions on Copic/Distress colours used, or other materials please feel free to leave me a comment and I'll do my best to help you out :) Links to images used are all the way through to help you out :)
Starting with the two Mother's Day projects I made this year, my Ma's present made with Aurora Wings Image White Poppy and coloured with Distress Inks
For my sister's Mothers Day Card I used a Hannah Lynn Image - Cali Girl
Miss K's birthday is another Hannah Lynn image available through Crafts and Me - Amber Eyes
Happy Birthday Shinks with Kraftin Kimmie's Birthday Friends and background paper made by using Annabelle Stamps - Scribble Scrabble 1
For beautiful new baby Isla I used Saturated Canary's Butterfly Baby masked with Make it Crafty's Daffodil Dell
This one was a commission piece using two Magnolia Stamps masked, On the Road Tilda and Tulip Walkway
For handsome baby boy Kaan - the image is from Little Miss Muffet Stamps - Babe Moon Lullaby
Gorjuss little Ladybird Gorjuss Girl :)
A card for a very special Miss J using Saturated Canary's Butterfly Princess, zoomed and cropped
Participating in a colouring competition over in the Kit and Clowder Facebook group I bought this beautiful image from The Stamping Chef - Alyce. I had so much fun with this image and really pushed myself out of my comfort zone with the colours I used and I was super happy with the results!!
This next piece is also courtesy of a Kit and Clowder Facebook group colouring competition. This gorgeous image is from The East Winds - Floral Kiss I was lucky enough to be a random winner of two free digis from this competition, one of which you will see below. This card was for Miss N, which also marks my 1 year anniversary for using Copic Markers. I used markers on an image for Miss N's birthday for the first time last year :)
My nephew turned 6 on the 16th July and when I asked Mr W what sort of picture he would like on his card he said he wanted a dinosaur. So I picked this image as I thought it looked like him dressed up in a dinosaur costume. This image is from Tiddly Inks - King of the Wild Ones
A very soft and lovely birthday card for Miss L using one of the digi's I won in the Kit and Clowder colouring competition. From The East Wind - 'Aurora' Daisy. I was so, SO happy with how the hair turned out on this image, it shows that my classes with Alyce at Kit and Clowder are definitely paying off!
Next up a card for my best mate's husband, using another image from The Stamping Chef, Miss Smexy. It was only as I was uploading and watermarking this evening that I realised I forgot to colour her eyes... I want to fix them!!!
For my favourite Miss S's birthday this year I used this cute as stamp from La-La Land - Ladybug Marci - I love Ladybirds!!
This second image shows the gorgeous sparkle from the Wink of Stella brush I used on her wings
This next piece was a step WAY out of my comfort zone. I keep seeing all these gorgeous 'no lines' coloured images, but hadn't been confident enough until now to try it. This little cutey from Tiddly Inks - Whatcha Doing?, seemed like the perfect image to try it out for the first time, not to complicated. Super happy with how this turned out!!
This card for JLo was made using Tiddly Inks - For the Birds
For Miss J another Tiddly Inks Image - Ellie Says Hi
Last up tonight another image from a Kit and Clowder Facebook Group colouring Competition. This image was offered a free image to the members of Kit and Clowder from All Dressed Up. I tried to do something a little different by using my gold prisma pencil and add a touch of face paint/make up to her face to try and fit the theme.
We are there, I hope you are still awake ;)
Thanks so much for looking and please feel free to leave any questions below
