Baby girl in buggy

I seem to very rarely get to make baby cards for baby girl; it’s always boys, boys and more boys. Then suddenly I got asked to do two almost at the same time. As with the other card I’ve chosen to hide the name of the baby.

The image I’ve used on this is by Wee Stamps. Isn’t it cute? I’m quite happy with the shading on it and tried to keep it soft and simple. I made a border around the image using flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts, some cheese close and punched out some leaves and butterflies with Martha Stewart punchers.

Here is another photo of the card laying down

Spring swing

Time for a new Mi Ran anything goes challenge in the facebook group. This month we have the optional theme of: Things with Wings! I chose the gorgeous Haylee for this and coloured her in with copics. As we’ve had a crap summer and autumn is around the corner, I deliberately chose a spring theme!

The papers I have used are by Lili of the Valley and the flowers are Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts. I used a couple of Martha Stewart punchers to make the butterflies. As the theme is things with wings I used it as an excellent excuse to add then! The border is also made using a Martha Stewart puncher and the leaves with a Noor Designs die.

Here comes the bride

I may not be posting a whole lot yet, but I am certainly back into crafting, mostly colouring! The mojo is back and I have coloured in a few images this month. Here is one of them, and by the end I was surrounded by markers as I never put them back in place until I am done with the image!

Last month I entered in a challenge on Mi Ran’s facebook group and I was chosen to be a Guest Designer for the challenge starting today. What an honour! I love Mi Ran‘s images and it was the perfect excuse to colour up a new one. I chose Princess for my project. Be sure to pop over and enter in the challenge!

The hair is what I am most pleased with. I have no idea how I managed as I haven’t gotten that far into the Kit and Clowder lessons yet. Trying to work with the basic skills after just watching the first couple of videos, and I am well happy how it turned out. I can’t wait to actually get to the lesson that covers this and see how much I did ‘wrong’, haha! It was fun trying to challenge myself before actually doing the class for this type of hair though! I am surprised how pretty it looks, and I am well chuffed! You know a class is great is when you can do just a couple of lessons and then be able to apply the technique to stuff you haven’t gotten to yet!

Anyway, I have used papers from Lili of the Valley, flowers and pearls from Wild Orchid Crafts, dies from Memory Box and Noor Design (with a dab of distress ink). On the image itself I have used rhinestones for ear rings, liquid pearls in the hair and down her back, as well as frantage and glitter around the image.

The copics I used are: E000, E00, E04, E11, E21, E44, E47, E49, E50, E53, E55, R20, R81, R83, R89, RV00, RV10, G82, G94, C1, C3, C5, C7, W0, W1, W2, W3, B000, B81, B83 and B85. Can you see how I was surrounded? haha.

Lastly I want to add that I have made myself a new watermark! I am quite pleased with how it turned out. Hopefully it will look just as good on darker cards!
