Molly - Cup of Thanks

Following my Birthday earlier in the month I wanted to send thank you's out but I have been a bit slow to complete them. This one is going to one of my student's families who gave me 2 lovely mugs with a little tray as a gift. Their daughter shares the same birthday.

I am entering my card in the Tiddlyinks March Challenge to use Molly. I have used a digital Molly and a digital thank you. The images are coloured with Copics and I have framed them with some pretty dies.

Power Poppy Easter colouring

Having enjoyed colouring the Power Poppy image as part of February's Kit and Clowder class (see previous post) I decided to colour another couple for Easter cards. I used some of the techniques I learned in the class and applied them to the lilies. I used Copics for colouring and added a little Prismacolor pencil to the top image.

Kit and Clowder Colouring Class - Feb 2018

I so enjoyed the challenge of colouring this image. It is one from Power Poppy. It pushed me out of my comfort zone again, particularly the glass and woodgrain but I am quite pleased with the result. I have a smaller version printed which I intend to colour up differently and turn into a card.

Thanks for looking

Reindeer and Santa cards for February

I have already made 16 cards for February's challenge. I have more Santa images to colour but I fancy a change so will be moving onto March's theme soon.
Here are the cards I made, mainly very simple in style but including some cute images.

Thanks for looking.

Kit and Clowder Colouring Class - Jan 2018

Started the Kit and Clowder monthly colouring classes and this is my first image. I did find it quite challenging especially the skin (much darker than any I normally colour) and the hair - getting the shadows in the right places and the strokes fine enough. A few of my crafting group thought it was pretty good so I decided to post it here.

Thanks for checking this out.

60th Birthday Party

This is the card I made for the Birthday Girl whose 60th party is tonight. It is an A5 sized card and the bright pink is because she likes bright colours, although like a lot of us ladies wears black dresses.
The image is digital from Make It Crafty and was coloured with Copics. Spica pens and white gel pen were added to the boa to give it some sparkle.

This smaller card was the acceptance card for the party that I sent before Christmas
It was also a digital image, this time from LOTV and again coloured with Copics.

Brian - a tale

I have just posted this card to Splitcoaststampers and it is going into the church where we are processing shoeboxes for all the volunteers to sign so it is A4 in size.

This is what I added in the description space "This card uses a fair bit of creative licence. Brian who normally coordinates the drivers delivering shoe boxes has been unwell so I made this card for all of us to send to him. The birds are the ladies who work tirelessly to check all the boxes (see a small stack at the bottom) and they are all wearing hand knitted hats which volunteers make throughout the year to go into boxes. Santa is the stand-in for Brian delivering boxes in a rather crazy manner. The birds are a Whimsy stamp and Santa is from Sassy Cheryl. I have a couple of close up photos too."
