After a very hectic week I really needed some time to myself today and what better way to spend that time than crafting!! I decided it was about time I started turning my coloured images into cards and so I bring TWO cards to you today.
Surprise 4 Mum
The first is this gorgeous digital bunny image “A Present for Mum” by Karens Doodles. I coloured it in earlier in the week and had been hanging out to share it with you so thought I better make something out of it.
And here is a close up of the cutie. I wanted to test my skills to see if I could keep the bunnies looking white with some shading to add the dimension. I am reasonably happy with the outcome but of course ‘I’ see all the errors. hehehe Sorry I was naughty and didn’t keep a list of copics used for this one. I started sharing so I am sorry I haven’t continued. My bad!
Updated: Just wanted to update my post after Lori asked the question about the clouds. I resized my template used in other posts to three different sized clouds and I used the Inkssentials™ blending tool with a light blue pigment ink. I wiped most of the ink off the pad onto some scrap paper before applying short strokes over the top section of the cloud template. Then I would switch to another template and repeate, finally going all the way around the bottom template to show the full cloud.
A Simple Thank you
In this next one I have used “Sophie and Teddy” from the new JUST RELEASED Victoria Case stamps exclusively available from The Townscrapper.
Doesn’t she look so innocent. I think she is gorgeous. Here is a close up of Sophie. Of course my brown copics hate me at the moment and I just can’t get my hair right. 🙁
And finally, you might have noticed my corners are all curved! Well I did a little shopping today. I went and bought a corner punch, and some material so I could start making some cute flowers. I even stamped the sentiment onto a strip of material and frayed the edge.
I followed a few challenges for these cards:
- Embellish magazine – (Surprise 4 Mum) Use borders and be inspired by Green, yellow, pink and peach
- Flourishes Timeless Tuesday – (Surprise 4 Mum) Scallops
- The Pink Elephant – Add Green to your colour combo
