Curious owl

Ever made a card for something you’ve been told you’re not allowed to make a card for? hahaha

I have. And this is the card.

There was an upcoming birthday party where I was told I wasn’t allowed to make a card for anybody, because their mom/nan had just started out with card making and didn’t want my card next to hers… So I cheated and made a very plain card for all of them in one go by adding up how old they were going to be. And yes, she liked it when she saw it so I got away with my sneaky card making! 😉

I’ve used an image from Some Odd Girl. It may be the first time I’ve coloured up one of theirs, I think. Cute, right? It is coloured in with copics. You can find the colours below.

Copics used: YR07, Y04, Y08, Y17, C1, C5, BG01, BG05, BG09, BG78, G09, Y000, E43, E47, E49

Dino Danny

It’s Friday and time for a new Anything Goes challenge at Art by Mi Ran’s facebook group! Our optional theme this month is Mermaids! As you will see I didn’t only opt out, but I went with something completely different. I used one of the brand new boy images in Mi Ran’s shop called Dino Danny! He is so cute! I love him! My mojo has been gone since before New Years, but now it’s back! At least for colouring. I decided to keep the card simple.

New Tiddly Inks release

Tiddly Inks is having a new release today and it’s so cuuuute!! Cuteness overload in fact! Then again, when isn’ti it?! I got to play around with a couple of the images and made a CAS card.

I coloured it all in with copics and made some grass and sky to give it more a scene feel. I rately colour something this small so it was a fun challenge! I am quite pleased with how it turned out. The paper in the top right is by Lili of the Valley. If you cannot read the text properly it says: “My brother has the best sister in the world”. It is true!

Kraft and more cake

Time for a new Tiddly Inks Challenge and the theme is Let’s Get Krafty: meaning using this brown paper I have used on my card. I was very unsure of what this challenge meant as I was not very familiar with Kraft and I decided the best way for me to follow the theme was to do a CAS card!

I have used one of my favourite Tiddly Inks stamps: Eat More Cake. It is super adorable and has the perfect name, don’t you think?! I coloured it in with copics, cut it using scissors (which I very rarely do) and used foam stickers to lift her off the craft paper a little. I then wrote a sentiment around the edge of the card and drew in some more little bits for fun!

Heart-strings

As the year is a bit awkward for doing challenges every 4 weeks and still only 12 a year, the July challenges at Mi Ran’s facebook group lasted two weeks longer than normal, so for 6 whole weeks. It gave us all a bit of a summer holiday and everyone on their holidays had more time to enter. Win/Win if you ask me! As it is time for the first August Challenge, it means it’s time for the progressive challenge! It’s fun too as we get more entries each month! The thing about the progressive challenge is that you join the facebook group and sign up for the progressive challenges, once you enter the challenge you will automatically recieve the image for the next challenge! How neat is that?! So come join up and join in! If you’d rather just purchase the image in Mi Ran’s shop, you can do so next month once the challenge is over. This is what I made for this month’s challenge.

I struggled a bit with the image, so instead of making it easy for myself.. I waited until the last minute, decided to try dip dyed hair for the first time and do something I hardly ever do: make a very simple CAS card using my own colouring. As I have a terrible habit of doing things backwards, I’ll try Kit and Clowder’s dip dye tutorial in their skin and hair class tomorrow.

The sentiment is by Pink Pettycoat. I added some rhinestones to jazz it up.
