Christmas: Yetis in a circle

These cards were made on 10th November; day 10 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. The yetis were coloured earlier in the challenge. I told you I love these yetis… and these are not the last you’ll see this month. I did try to do something a bit different with each pair though;… Continue reading Christmas: Yetis in a circle

Christmas: Yetis on stamped backgrounds

I just love these yetis. Last year it was the Create A Smile santa that got used repeatedly; this year it’s these yetis. They are just too adorable. How: First I created a background panel by stamping lots of small images from the beast friends set. Once I’d coloured them, I was very brave and… Continue reading Christmas: Yetis on stamped backgrounds

Birthday: No-line bear

This card was created on 30th July: day 26 of The Daily Marker 30 Day Colouring Challenge. I loved the black-stamped version of this bear so I decided to be brave and make one of my infrequent attempts at no-line Copic colouring and try to recreate it using the same colour palette. For me, no-line… Continue reading Birthday: No-line bear

Thanks: Succulent sketch

September’s challenge over at Seven Hills Crafts is a sketch. One of these days I’ll figure out how to interpret sketches in a novel and interesting way (and still have it recognisable), but today is not that day. Instead, I’ve used the sketch as is, but divided it into layers with the pots at the… Continue reading Thanks: Succulent sketch

Hello: Orange and grey

Once again, I’m cutting it fine creating a challenge entry in time… where does the month go? It took a while to figure out what I was going to do for this; there were three palettes to choose from and either of the others would have been easy choices for a floral card (both had… Continue reading Hello: Orange and grey

Birthday: Twin rainbow

It’s that time of year again, when I have to come up with an idea for cards for twins. I’ve been playing with foil and Minc mist recently, so I thought I’d put the experimenting to good use and create a foil rainbow across the two cards as a background for some Copic colouring. How:… Continue reading Birthday: Twin rainbow

Blank: Copic farmyards

For the “colouring round objects” lesson in the Copic Jumpstart class, Sandy Allnock masked up a comical pile of vegetables and coloured them. The only vegetation in my stamp collection is floral, so I went further up the food chain and found these decidedly round farmyard animals and stacked those up instead. How: I hadn’t… Continue reading Blank: Copic farmyards

Birthday card: Balloon with repeat stamping

What: My first birthday card of the year and it has to be for a man. As if the mojo-killing New Year’s malaise wan’t enough, I can’t even just sit down and colour some pretty flowers or cute animals. No, I have to come up with a more masculine design. A quick browse through Pinterest… Continue reading Birthday card: Balloon with repeat stamping
