Shy violet and frustration-inked background

Have you ever been so stuck on a card that you have fuzzy cut it twice? Once with a border and once without? And then been so frustrated on what to do with the actual that you’re almost just throwing away the image? Well this happened to me, on this card. It’s possible because it is yellow. I am not very good with yellow. So how did it end up as a card?

Well… I got out one of my copic refill ink bottles and just tossed some ink down on the blank card, then I got a cotton pad which I poured more ink on and just rubbed it on the white background. And there we go. It wasn’t supposed to be pretty, or planned, or anything. In fact I liked how it just showed my frustration somewhat, hahaha. I made a sentiment text and printed it out and layered it between the inked background and the coloured image.

A perfectly reasonable way to react when you cannot think of what to do, right? haha. I really quite like it, though, and I will definitely do more cards like it. Although… it will be more intentional next time! Maybe I should do a tutorial on it then…

And the image? That is Shy Violet by Tiddly Inks. The card is for the new Tiddly Inks anything goes challenge. Come join in, will you?

Tiddly flowers for you

Today is Friday. That means it’s time for Fab Friday over at the Tiddly Inks blog! I decided to use Thankful Heart for my card.

I had fun playing around with colours for this one. I decided to take some random colours for the hair and I really really like how it turned out. I think I might have just found myself a new favourite hair colour combination for brown hair! The flowers turned out pretty good also, I think.

And here is a view from a different angle:

The shy pot plant

It is time for a new challenge over at Tiddly Inks. This time it is an autumny colour collage you can use for inspiration. I’ve stuck with most of the colours, apart from maybe the orange. The stamp I decided to use for this is one of the stamps you get in the Shy Violet set. It’s been coloured in with Copics. You can find the list of colours below.

I’ve used a text sentiment from Lili of the Valley, and flowers from The Hobby House and Wild Orchid Crafts.

Copics used: (pot) E42, E43, E44, E47, E49, (table) W1, W3, W5, W7, (flower) R81, R83, R85, R89, (leaves) G40, G82, G94, G99

There will be loads of fun things both on the blog and facebook page during the month, so be sure to keep an eye out as there are some great prizes to be won!

The card I made for the birthday is done with an image from Tiddly Inks that I absolutely adore. The image is obviously coloured with copics. Most of the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and lace and some flowers from Live and Love Crafts

New tiddly release flower with Shy Violet

New Tiddly Inks release time! Yey! I actually managed to colour up two of the new images before they went live. They are so very cute! Here is the first one I did. It is the violet included with the Shy Violet stamp. Trust me to choose to colour up the included stamp and make a card with that, rather than the main one! This stamp is great though, you can use it for ANYTHING! Perfect!

Obviously I coloured it in with copics.. I’ll let you know the day I use something else! The papers are by Lili of the Valley, the doily Dovecraft, the lace Live and Love Crafts and the butterfly dies Noor Design. The flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts and I added dark pink glittery glue inside so they would match the flowers I coloured up. I’ve also used distress ink, liquid pearls, rows of pearls, and a ribbon from a local shop.
